Hi! I'm sorry that I have to post this, and this is an incredibly stupid problem. But I disabled OEM Unlock on a rooted device with a custom bootloader...
So I was trying to see if all the developer settings were right and I just made quite the oopsie. I don't know how to fix this. I've got a Samsung SM-T580 that I rooted a couple of years ago and it's still rocking Android 8.1.

How do I fix this? How do I enable OEM Unlock? I'm perfectly fine with formatting the device and losing data, because there's not much to lose. I was planning on trying to get Android 10 on my tablet anyways because the WIFI keeps randomly disconnecting. (Android 8.1 bug)

Thanks in advance!

Edit: FIX:
To fix this issue you just need to download the firmware for your device and your region.
Then you just need to download Odin and unpack both the Odin and firmware .zip files.

Watch this video it really helps:
Do Not use the firmware download link provided in the video, because that site is just a waste of time!
Use this site for firmware download: https://sfirmware.com/

Hope this helps anyone!
