You should be.

Well I thought I was, now I'm not sure. Sometime yesterday the apps that normally ask for root either stopped asking or lock up when I run them.. I originally rooted from towel root. Yesterday I tried flashing root thru TWRP. Still not sure how or if it is working.

Finally got it fixed, not sure which of my attempts were successful, but I can now confirm root. Whew!

If your bootloader is unlocked.... Never fear you have lost root. Even if you have to factory reset or use rsd there is always a method.

So out of curiosity - now that I'm unlocked, can I load a romI previously used with safestrap or is the fact that they were JB based going to cause a problem?

A) If you installed a CUSTOM RECOVERY you don't NEED to use SafeStrap anymore.
B) Pretty sure you can. Not 100% though. Are you on DroidRZR.com? That would be the best place to ask.

you have to flash back to JB to flash a JB based rom or it will bootloop.
as far as flashing a safestrap rom in custom recovery, i cant say for sure.
the most feature filled roms will be cwm/twrp flash, so its kinda pointless to flash a ss rom unless you just want stock based stuff.

Well it's been fun, especially the last seven or eight months with the unlocked bootloader :D I've had many different ROMs, ending in CM12 Lollipop. But yesterday, I activated a used Note 3 (yes I like being an iteration or two behind the latest & greatest) so now it's time to retire the HD. Best wishes to all!
