Flashed patched_boot.img.tar on S7 G930 and now my security pattern isn't recognised!

I followed the instructions on the main Magisk thread to add Magisk via Odin to a stock phone without a custom recovery. All seemed to work as expected. On rebooting the phone after flashing my security pattern isn't recognised and I'm locked out. I extracted the boot.img from the correct firmware at sammobile. I'm guessing the patched boot image may somehow invalidate my pattern. There's no way I'm getting the pattern wrong as I've used it for years.

The phone has been reset to factory setting before I started so there's no data on it I need to save. What's my best option to get back in?

OK. I've worked it out myself. It initially just said restart your phone after a number of incorrect attempts, which it did 3 or 4 times, but in the end gave me a countdown from 10 more attempts to a factory reset. Now reset and all is fine.

Did you have to factory reset after applying boot image to get it to boot? I've tried this a few times without doing but it just boot loops on my S7 Edge.
