Hello. I'm having an interesting issue that I hope someone can help me out with.

I got my new S4 Tab a few weeks back and decided I wanted to root it.

I unlocked the bootloader and installed twrp but had something go wrong and got stuck in a boot loop. No biggie, I figured, I would just flash back to stock and go again. I downloaded ARK4 (XAR) and it went on fine and I was back in business.

I knew I would have to wait the seven days due to RMM to reunlock and go again, but OEM Unlock hadn't come back. It's been a few weeks now. Also it doesn't boot directly into the bootloader any more by doing the power and both volume buttons. It will go into the bootloader if I boot into stock recovery and then reboot to the bootloader. But even that looks different. I don't see the text I saw before with things like the rmm status. Just the greenish screen that says downloading.

Any ideas on how to get my unlock back? I read I can't flash back to an earlier version. Is that true?

Thanks.
