I'm upset at this point. I just attempted to downgrade to 4.4.2 yesterday but that didn't work (obviously), so I'm stuck. Has ANYONE found anything leading to how to unlock the bootloader for us? I would do it myself but I don't know how. Any support is appreciated.

Actually, this is the first method I tried to root. However, I've found a bootloader unlock that I think works. Once I do this I'll just flash 4.4.2, then flash a custom recovery and flash JasmineROM 5.1

Are you bent on rolling back? I updated my firmware to OF1, rooted, unlocked the bootloader, and installed TWRP. Then flashed the Jasemine ROM 6.1 (Lollipop) and it works great.

I forget I don't have to roll back however at this point I don't own the phone anymore stuck with the Cricket LG G Stylo with root but a locked bootloader...

*Edit*
Forgot to mention that in the end, I did root and unlock the bootloader. Also flashed TWRP at least my work is finally done
