For those, who don't know, there's how to unlock/lock bootloader without erasing data:

1. Turn off the phone

2.Hold power & volume down, keep the volume down button pressed!

3.Connect phone to PC, on PC fastboot type:

fastboot oem unlock
still keep the volume down pressed

fastboot reboot

when phone starts to reboot, release volume down(when black screen appear), for me, when it starts to reboot, I disconnect the phone too

5. Now phone should be unlocked without deleting data partition.

Tested, for me worked 100%, but you need to be careful, or you will lose data!

Full Credit goes to Ondraczsk from XDA.

even if this works, you still need to fully wipe/format to install a custom rom for the first time. (or you need to if you want it to work)
