    Lightbulb Update - stock firmware no root

    Just wanted to update everyone.

    It looks like there's a touch of a problem with flashing on the VZW model:
    Verizon model is protected from flashing unsigned/modified boot.img and recovery.img. Which means there is no known root method as for now for SCH-I535. - AdamLange
    [VIA] xda-developers - View Single Post - [KERNEL] SCH-I535 (Galaxy S III VERIZON) ROOTED INSECURE KERNELS - IMPORTANT INFO!

    So far there's no root method. And, I still haven't heard/read anything about unlocking the bootloader on the vzw variant.

    I can't wait to get my SGS3, but I hope I don't have to return it...
    Its all data.

    There's one very very special person out there that has a very interesting boot spalsh. See link below.

    [via] xda-developers - View Single Post - Custom Unlock Icon on Boot, what does it mean?

    Looks like Qualcom secureboot is enabled on the VZW SGS3 though.

    ODIN MODE
    PRODUCT NAME: SCH-I535
    CUSTOM BINARY DOWNLOAD: No
    CURRENT BINARY: Samsung Official
    SYSTEM STATUS: Custom

    QUALCOM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE

    I'm not so familiar with Samsung phones, still have my OG Droid. But that "QUALCOM SECUREBOOT" looks ominous in a bad way.
    Its all data.

    See ya on Monday

    If I can't find any good news for the VZW SGS3 by EOD Monday, I'll probably have to go with the GNex or jump ship and go with AT&T or worse Sprint.

    I'm still a bit shocked that Verizon got Samsung to lock up this flagship phone. There is some extra check that is added to the VZW variant of the phone, that will not allow unsigned boot.img to be flashed. From what I have read, and I've read way too much about this today, the VZW SGS3 is the only SGS3 that has this extra super fun roadblock to getting plain old root. Not to mention custom recovery, kernel, and full on ROMs.

    I'll keep me fingers crossed, but I won't hold my breath.

    Jesus, Verizon is getting to be as bad as Apple! Glad I didn't wait for this turd... Guess it's time to take a good hard look at Sprint.

    Repost from my XDA post.


    I just got off the phone with Samsung Level II tech support. Verizon requested the bootloader be signed and encrypt
    ed. They are the only carrier according to Samsung who made this request. The Level I tech I talked to had no clue so she transferred me to Level II who took about 10 minutes to research the issue and found a note in his system that specifically mentioned the Verizon signed/encrypted.

    That's about as official of a reply as I could get. I was told if I wanted an unencrypted device I should go get an AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint device NOT Verizon. That's exactly what the rep said.

    Next call is back to Verizon Corporate. I just talked to them again yesterday. Another angry voice mail in route.

    I should call them (sammy) tomorrow. Actually I will.
    What's the number?
