    Just make sure to unlock AFTER the ota because it apparently relocks the bootloader. That's what got me.

    I have tried to install a ROM on a friends phone around 5x now and i keep getting the
    "system software not authorized by verizon wireless has been found on your phone."
    error message

    im using this method:
    which seems to work fine for root and i even see an open padlock on the boot screen which seems to me like an unlocked bootloader.
    HOWEVER... after installing a ROM (tried a few 4.1.2 variants) i still get this verizon message.
    luckily i am able to flash back to stock and start over without problems.
    tried CWM and TWRP with no difference

    im doing the rooting/unlocking AFTER the latest OTA... what am i doing wrong?

    FIXED: i fell victim to the deceiving open padlock icon during boot
    my bootloader is not actually unlocked.... it just detected that i have root installed.
    after following these instructions: [GUIDE] Root for Jelly Bean 4.1.1 or 4.1.2 OTA ***UPDATED 3/5*** - xda-developers
    and actually unlocking bootloader all is well.

    The yellow triangle is a sure sign that your boot loader is still locked. I myself just went through this last week. Had to recover/flash back to stock then start all over again.
