how did you reboot your phone? you have to use wanam's reboot option to do so, just so wanam can update things to the system. if you reboot by other means, especially by holding the power bottom and select reboot, it won't get ride of the pad lock.

I got it to work by rooting and deleting busybox from system/bin and system/xbin. Which survives even after a factory reset. Was able to exchange the phone no problem after using full unroot from within SuPro. No padlock.
