Specifically the downgrade step to version 3.2.8 is described elsewhere on this forum as dangerous, possibly resulting in a brick. The unlock process is different for the other methods, like the one I'm attempting via "bulk mode".

That thread is 51 pages long, but yes, it seems to reference the problematic rollback step.

Yep - that method is exceptionally risky in the absence of precautions to avoid an OTA update that will result in an unrecoverable brick.

Many threads on XDA contain instructions, that will cause damage to your device, if you do not follow the instructions exactly.
I will add a warning in the index.
