Question: after sim unlocked, what can I do to lose this? Updates? Firmware change? Unroot? Re-stock?

The "unlock" was performed where exactly? :)

The unlock is performed during the app reboots and it's stored in the phone NV items, so it will last until you perform a NV Rebuild because such command reset all the NV Items.
You can upgrade, downgrade, root, un-root or factory reset the phone and the unlock will stay.
IF in the future you will need to perform an NV Rebuild then don't worry, the license will last for all the phone lifetime, you will be able to use the app again.
See you ;-)

Hey, not sure if anyone still checks this. I started the steps, flashed the AP in ODIN and got the bootloop but my phone never connects to the computer during the bootloop. Am I doing something wrong?

Flash the stock ROM back in order to fix the bootloop, then repeat the root steps: https://idoneapps.com/forum/index.php?topic=8.0

When you will flash the engineering bootloader the device will start to bootloop, so you have to make sure you follow all the required steps before to flash it (enable USB debug, install our app, open it at least once, copy the Root_S7 folder into the device), otherwise you won't be able to stop the bootloop.
See you ;-)
