Default [Q] Unlocking bootloader by flashing back to 4.1

So this is probably far fetched and impossible but I got stuck flashing the official firmware from beanstown for a 4.3 rom. I couldn't get the rom to function properly and so i restored my backup via twrp. I unchecked the boot and modem options because i didn't think they were necessary. Now I had a soft brick and eventually led me back to root66 4.1.1. If i were to flash the 4.1.2 VRAMC3 would i be able to reroot and unlock my bootloader via casual, or is it stuck with a 4.3 bootloader?

Note: when i try to boot into recovery, It's the android one and I can't seem to use casual on this rom to install a new bootloader.
