You have to unlock the locking nut to allow you to tune using the headstock tuners, you'll also have to loosen the springs in the tremolo cavity to get the bridge back level. Also if you're doing anything more severe than dropping the low E to a D you'll want to put heavier strings on.

Doesn't really make any difference though, as soon as you remove the block to adjust the springs the system dorps back into equilibrium and you're in exactly the same position as you would have been had you not bothered blocking the trem. Also as soon as you start mucking with the springs you send all your strings out of tune again.
