Does the TraceEvent library work on an unlocked Windows RT

I read that it will not work for locked RT devices, but will it work if the device is unlocked?

Generally speaking, yes, the TraceEvent library works on ARM and thus both WinRT and the Phone (it is after all mostly managed code).

However there are pieces of functionality that rely on native code (PDB symbol lookup and Merging of ETW traces) and currently TraceEvent does not supply these native DLLs for ARM. However they are 'stock' DLLs (like msdia100.dll) that you can get from other places, so it is possible to work around this.

Finally as you can imagine, the library does not get tested regularly on ARM, so you may run into issues (although we have not had a ARM specific bug yet).
