Fixed by Sony PC Companion ('Fix my Tablet' which just re-flashed the stock fw) after the struggle of stopping the loop.

Default A bit confused

Prerequisite:
1. SGP321 with stock 10.5.A.0.230 Locked Bootloader(unlocking instruction here) or do it from Flashtool To relock Bootloader once done, repeat this step.
1. Download SuperSU flashable
2. Download and extract the boot.img from CM11
3. Installed fastboot (part of the Android SDK)

So in step 1 above, does the bootloader need to be unlocked? Or does this method work with locked bootloader? I'm sorry, the wording is a little awkward and I would like to know if I need to back up my TA keys prior to attempting this method.

Thanks
