    Viperboy makes a mod you can use, you need working ADB but unlocked bootloader is for sure not needed.

    After root and unlock per above ROM Manager 5.0.6 states that the TF201 is not compatible and asks if you have installed ClockworkMod manually. If you say yes it asks if the version of ClockWorkMod is 2x or 3x. It was my understanding that the process above by mobi would allow the complete backup of the ROM by ClockwokMod.

    OK, I know the benefits of rooting and unlocking the bootloader completely. But what I do wonder about is if there will be a way to ever re-lock the boot-loader? I can't see why not, as in any phone that I have had, evo, Google/next etc you can always re-lock the boot to a full s-on.. will this ever be possible so that one does not have to stay in a warranty failure status?

    Scare tactics ..... But

    I thought the US courts ruled in the favor of the consumer against Apple that these sorts of reasons are no longer acceptable reasons to void a warranty. I thought the courts ruled that "Jailbreaking" is the consumers right, and doing so cannot be grounds for voiding the warranty. Isnt unlocking the bootloader considered a form of "jailbreaking"

    After downloading the unlock tool, reading the rights, clicking the check boxes, I proceed by selecting the unlock option but continue to get an error stating "an unknown error occurs, which may be a network connection issue. Please try again later".

    I've rebooted twice, uninstalled and reinstalled the app with the same results.

    Any ideas?

    I unlocked it but there were never any options for me in the recovery. I ended up rooting with the downgrade firmware and then root option and it ended up relocking my TFP so, warranty is back and I have root.

    The unlock tool isn't working for me. It keeps giving me "Unknown error" messages whenever I try to unlock it...
