Unlock after a reflash??

Had a new FICM install at Ford, paperwork states they "programmed the FICM and PCM" I returned the truck to stock before they touched it. Do I need to unlock my
Xcal2 "before I can read the new strategy"?

As long as you returned to stock should be ok, you may have to open liveload and hit the "unlock" button, also, you may have to get new custom tunes for new strategy
