A few of us purchased the Dev Edition because the bootloader is unlocked, and it appears there are some things where clarification is required concerning the three "R's":
1. Rooting: I understand this wonderful rooting exercise is successful: [HOW TO] Root your Verizon Galaxy S4. I would think since the Dev Edition is unlocked, an owner would only utilize the Root step, and NOT the kernel exchange section. Correct? Or, must one complete the entire process?
2. ROMing: Since the ROMS were created using the Loki enabled system, does this affect ROMing the Dev Edition since it is already unlocked? What does a user need to do? Or, does it not matter? Do the Loki enabled ROMS work on a Dev Edition?
3. Recovery: Again, it appears TWRP and CWM are Loki adjusted, so does this affect recovery on the Dev Edition and restoring? Also, is there a Stock Factory Image which will NOT turn the phone back to a locked bootloader? Or, does the one which exists OK to use?
Or, are we confused on all counts? Does none of this matter?
I only ask these questions since a few of us are somewhat confused.
Thanking you in advance!
