I either still have an unlocked BL or twrp works with the upgraded firmware?
I am now exploring going back to vramc3 because I liked my phone much better when there.

You didn't flash the updated bootloader

Please note, I do not do ROM support via PM. If you have a question, ask in the device thread. Thanks.

Thanks you are correct. Upon further reading I used Beantowns stock update for 4.3. That does not include the new bootloader, so I am still on my unlocked version. I stand corrected. G

If you flash the full ota via odin you will have a locked BL. But if you kept your 4.1.2 loader and just flashed the firmware bits that beans posted then you still have your no knox 4.1.2 bootloader with the 4.3 bits. So u can still use a custom recovery. If you did flash the full firmware then you are perma locked on 4.3 and I doubt there will ever be a unlock for it.

Default bootloader locked

On Note 2 i605 If I used the zip package to reinstall the 4.3 from 4.1.1, will that still lock my bootloader or can I still downgrade to stock ROM 4.1 and install custom ROM.
