The "lock" icon means that another user has opened that article for editing at some earlier time without properly saving and closing it.

If you "select" the article and choose "Checkin" at the top, it will check the article in and resolve the issue for you.
Don't HACK the Joomla! core, Instead "Extend" and/or "Override."
Stay ON the update path.
