Has anyone encountered this before, or similar?
Advice is a plus!
Well, after a week of trying to root and get twrp to stick, I finally did yesterday with odin 3.09. I even tried out a couple of roms. Unfortunately, I couldnt get text and phone and the airave to play nice together unless I was on stock. If I had the airave on, I didnt get texts. If I had the airave off, I didnt get signal. So, begrudgedly, I had to put it back to stock, for now.
