It probably means that you are running a getty on that port.

Change the line in /etc/ttys that mentions /dev/tty00 so that it
says off instead of on.

Reboot or kill -HUP 1 (the init process) and there should be no
getty process running anymore on tty00 (There will still be one
for the console).

That should unlock tty00.

Glad to be of service.
