Is the device wiped when using this (like fastboot oem unlock does on my Galaxy Nexus)?

That is a pretty stern warning that they post for this file. Is there really no way to get back to an original locked state if we unlock our bootloader? I would really hate to unlock and then have a hardware issues that required service as my warranty would be void (according to Asus, anyway).

I guess until there are custom ROMs available, there really isn't much reason to unlock yet anyway, right?

Thanks to the OP for spotting this! I'm guess that custom ROM's with OC'd kernels, etc will be coming soon!

Correct.

As for the warranty loss, it is pretty heavy, yeah. But if there is an actual hardware failure that couldn't possibly be related to the bootloader unlock and flashing custom ROMs, maybe they'll still fix it if you RMA it? Not sure how it's been done for the Prime or TF300.

It would give Asus a great amount of good-will at least. I guess they'd consider it on a case-by-case basis.

I had unlocked, s-off-ed, rooted, flashed custom roms, tweak cpu to max possible and what not on my HTC Desire phone....and it was on repair for 4 times now. Never had a case anyone said anything because of that. Why? Because the first thing the do is reset the phone to factory default (which effectively means its like brand new) and they cannot even tell it was anything different.

Of course this goes true for any HW issue like broken screen, back panel, motherboard etc...cause phone/tablet is not working and they can't even boot it or whatever. Another things are minor issues when you can still do pretty much everything except that what is broken (let's say headhone jack doesn't work and sound is not heard on your headphones, you can't hear the caller or vice versa), but usually with any unlocking, rooting etc SW there is always their counterpart, so you can usually always revert back to what it was. At least I have such experiance. Maybe I only had luck.

I am pretty sure I have fried my motherboard or cpu 2 times. No problem...
