After seeing a few results, it seems the hardware fix was put into play. I had 2 access points to get into the bootrom when i was on 188.8.131.52/8 before downgrading. I believe the bootrom was disabled on devices. Looking for anyone who has a device purchased before 09/2020. Downgrading to 184.108.40.206 can be completed if you have access to the bootrom. Bootrom access was available to me with the battery disconnected, volume + and then plugging in. There is a shorting option that was working also (fairly easy but doesn't seem necessary with the access). At this point i had to format the preloader because it wouldnt read the emmc without the battery, but the battery when plugged in would load the preloader. Thanks to @k4y0z for his fantastic work. I will be donating a maverick and sloane for his efforts to support us all!
