You may be on to something. I root and hack every android device I've ever owned (to embarrassed to say how many) and I didn't feel the need to unlock or root my prime but being the flash junkie that I am I had to do it. Now I'm afraid to lock it up with a borked rom or something weird. I didn't have any of the problems people were having with their primes before I unlock and rooted it (wished I hadn't now).
And the battery was completely dead but luckily I was able to get enough of a charge to use the adb fix and flash the stock rooted rom.
