Are you serious that asus actually encrypted the bootloader on this? It doesn't even have 3G and isn't tied to a carrier. I can understand locking it but encrypting it is stupid. I always thought the carriers wanted these devices locked down. Every day I am seeing new reasons not to get this...

Yep 128 bitAES encryption! It's crazy
We have nvflash for Tegra 3 but the then found out the bootloader is encrypted

Besides protecting ASUS from warrantying hacked devices, is there an end user benefit of an encrypted bootloader. Like more data security for the tablet user, say in a public WIFI... or is there no relation between the two.. and no end user benefit...?

The easiest way to get them to unlock the bootloader is to get everyone on here to return their primes, if they get hundreds of returns just because of a locked boot loader I have a feeling they will unlock it pretty fast.

I have to say it would be pretty cool if we got a ton of people to return their primes on the same day and announce to Asus that we are returning them because of the locked boot loader.
