then you'll be able to remove the tampered flag and set the bootload back to "LOCKED" (not RE-LOCKED)
follow guide linked in my signature for going back to stock

try to s-off using firewater + arhd 31.6 rom

I know. I tried to get s-off but none of the given tools succeeded. They all complete their full cycle and eventually after the last reboot I go and check the state and it still says s-on... Then I did read I need a proper ROM so the tools can work (better). I tried to install ARHD like you mention, but after flashing it was stuck in a bootloop again. Clearing the cache and davlik didn't solve it.

At the moment I only need to know if it's safe to update to the new 5.16.161.2 update while it's unlocked... I got TWRP installed but I know I have to flash the stock recovery in order to make the update work. But I'm afraid I'm going to brick it again if I lock it again, as I don't know if it's needed to let the update complete without any errors.
