Default Bootloader Won't Unlock

Soo, trying to unlock my C6603 bootloader via adb however I'm having some problems.

- I'm getting "Failed" and then if I try a second time "Okay" (connected properly, returned version 0.5)
- Then I'm stuck in a bootloop and cannot turn my phone back on and need to wipe my data.
- Note: Bootloader Unlock Allowed: Yes

Any ideas?...

4.3 Rooted (Using the steps on this forum.) I did try to unlock the bootloader previous to rooting the phone and still the same problem..

Here are screenshots of my settings and (cropped) service menu for reference.

I meant the os on your pc, if it is Windows 8 or 8.1 you have to do some tricks. I can't remember though what tricks, you'll have to search for it

Ahh. Yes, I'm running Windows 8.1, however, I'm in Test-Mode.. No idea what other "tricks" I'd need to do..

Already did that, drivers installed fine. /:

I also tried the Flashtool's built-in Bootloader Unlocking Tool. Exact same deal..

Alright I have no idea how I did it, but I just put my phone in flashmode and kept disconnecting the USB and reconnecting it and messed with Flashtool.. Somehow I ended up unlocking it... I'm so angry but happy right now. I wish I could provide a solution.. But I can't... I think my bootloader was just corrupt or had an error..

Anyway, now I'm running the Pac-Man Nightly 4.4 KitKat ROM . Yaaay.

I was considering learning Java and just tinkering with this.. But.. This has been so frustrating... Taken days.. Gah..
