Does the new root method mean new unlocked bootloader methods? or is the bootloader itself the problem and not root?

Root only. Boot lock is another, much,much tougher, animal.

Like Avi said, two totally different things. There was an update in May and it also blocked root and the unlock method. They were able to gain root again, but the BL is much more involved.

You can install SafeStrap and install another stock ROM on slot 1. Then, you can use Xposed to add all kinds of customization and you can flash a mod that allows init.d to allow you install init.d tweaks. Doing all of this on your safe slot will keep you from messing up your stock slot. If you get everything set up in slot 1 and it runs well, there is a way to restore it on your stock side, but I won't go into that now.

I followed your instructions for installing safestrap but my phone isn't allowing me to create a ROM slot. On any of the slots its just greyed out.

Maybe you don't have enough space on your internal memory. When you go to create a rom slot, check how much space is required and how much is available
