    Congrats S3 owners! Shouldn't have gave up so quickly on mine, but I wasn't going to put up with that crap. Who did it? AdamOuter on XDA.? Has the person / team claimed their bounty?

    No idea. That screenshot says read comments at xda for help. Honestly I don't even have an sgs3, I've just been following this. I have a CM10 Bionic. But Ubuntu is free, and you don't have to fully install it over windows either, just run a live cd and check the comments over there.

    I wonder if you can do this at the Apple store. It's a thought!! Those of you who are stuck with ancient Windows XP computers, let us know how this works out!!

    ps- Reading the article at XDA, it does indeed look like it was AdamOutler. No clue how much help he received from other members. I don't even own an S3, but I might just donate to him as a big F-U to Verizon.

    Yup, it was Adam. His dedication to cracking this thing was unbelievable. I've never seen so many likes (or thanks at xda) on one single post.

    Whoever (African-Canadian Sock Monkey? WTF is that?) leaked the bootloader deserves a big thanks as well. Someone at Sammy maybe?

    I like Adam's quote in the bootloader unlock R&D thread:

    Why not just buy a developer edition
    GTFO! Not a single person got started developing by buying a developer phone. They started developing because they were unhappy with the features of their device and wanted something better. They wanted something more. This developer phone is a tax on developer innovation. We do not stand for that. We will break the security and we will enable XDA-Developers to do what they do best.

    Love it! Hmmm, sales forecast for the "developer edition"? Cloudy and poor!

    That's what happens when you try and raid people's wallets for what should be available to them in the first place.

    Well I don't blame Sammy for the developer edition. I put the blame on Verizon. If Verizon didn't ask for the locked down version, Samsung just would have released an unlockable version.
