i recent relieved my phone from a boot loop and have reinstalled stock rom. i am running android version 4.1.1 and baseband version VRAMC3. well here is my question, this version is rooted and i want to unlock the bootloader so i can install custom roms. Can i use casual to unlock the bootloader with it being rooted already?

thanks

This is just my 2 cents, but if I were you, I would probably ODIN to factory stock 4.1.2 VRAMC3. Then, you should be able to use Adam Outler's Casual to root and unlock bootloader all in one step. I see where you had commented in this thread.... http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=52880198

You should be able to use the same links as well, as long as you never took the 4.3 OTA and permanently locked your bootloader.

I'm not familiar with the process of unlocking bootloader on 4.1.1, so not able to provide help there. I would guess that if you read through old threads, you can find something on it.


Good luck.

edit-- I looked at Droidstyle's guide again and he said that flashing root66 does not lock your bootloader again. So... sounds like you don't need to try unlock the bootloader as long as you never took 4.3 OTA and had the bootloader unlocked before ODIN'ing to 4.1.1/Root66.
