Been there done that and had that fun. I had a factory reflash done and also had to basically reload the SCT and lost 2 unlocks. It really sucks. This has happend to me more than once. I have been told that if it happens on your truck you are just more likely to have it happen again because the problem is usually the truck not the tuner.

Re: #@$%#@ X3

Make sure you update to the latest firmware, especially if it's an older version that has pre-programmed and custom tuning both.

Re: #@$%#@ X3

How do you loose a unlock. Is it everytime you hook the tuner up to the truck and transfer something.

Re: #@$%#@ X3

When that happened to me I ended up having to send my X3 back to SCT for repair. The when I got it back we had to do the recovery file business. Luckily I wasn't stranded and still had a workable tune on the truck.
