    The Verizon Galaxy S III Bootloader Has Been Unlocked!!!




    Some had discounted that this could ever be done, but thanks to a generous leaker we now have access to an unsecured bootloader! Before you read any further you should know that if you plan to use this you will not want to receive any official OTA updates without first flashing your device back to stock via the Odin packages. If you accept the OTA after unlocking the bootloader it could brick your device. This will not work once Verizon releases an OTA update, so you should get in on this while you can.

    For now the tool will only work on Mac and Linux or Ubuntu on Windows.

    The process is pretty simple.

    You will open the tool
    Select Root with DebugFSroot
    Select Flash Unsecure Aboot
    Use Odin or CWM Recovery to flash the Kernels

    Apparently there is already another exploit method tucked away that will be released as soon as Verizon patches this method!

    Geez just go download an Ubuntu live image and burn it to a cd or a bootable flash drive.

    You must be so tired from all the effort YOU put forth unlocking this boot loader. Oh wait. Yea...
