My stock unrooted wifi galaxy tab 10.1 just received an update OTA that seems to have done nothing except LOCK my unlocked bootloader. It was only 11.2mb and during the update process my tab went into download mode, then to a command line looking interface with commands related to encrypting bootloader. I no longer have the unlocked symbol upon boot up. Look out for update version UEKG4!

EDIT: Google videos app has been loaded as well, but not in the market, just the app.

Very odd. What region are you in? I just did an update check and there was no update available.

I am in the US. I cant find anything else that it may have updated. No extra apps, features, or apparent bug fixes. Just locked bootloader.

Yes, thank you for the warning. As a heads up to anyone that has even an inkling of interest in rooting your tablet. DO NOT TAKE OTA's until they have been looked through by the devs. Just look at the evo 4g forums on here

I guess I am confused, my tab was/is locked but I have CW recovery and a custom rom. So what is the big deal?

BTW how do you tell if your device is locked or unlocked?

If it is unlocked, there is a picture of a Lock during bootup and it shows as open.

If it is locked, then there is no picture at all.

(at least this is how my 2 different tabs showed up)
