Desktop manager is notifying you of an available upgrade, sounds like. It will not reverse the unlock.

My opinion on software/OS upgrades is this: If it ain't broken, don't fix it. An upgrade will not relock the device. Once unlocked, it stays unlocked.

If your device works as you want and need it to, then why risk messing it up by doing an upgrade. Read through the posts and see what people say. Granted, only those with problems usually post, but you can get a feel for what might happen.

I am most like in the minority here, but if it works, why take a chance to screw it up?
