Verizon Galaxy S 3 Bootloader Information
As we should all know by now, the Galaxy S 3 will be released on Verizon this coming Tuesday, the 10th, and also that some preorders have already shipped and customers have already received them. Yet, even with the phone not yet officially released, people are already bitching.
About what you asked? Well they actually have an ok reason, kinda, not really…. Those who have already received the device and have started tinkering with it, and trying to gain root, have noticed that no previous root methods are working. Verizon has gone in and re-encrypted the bootloader, which has seemingly thwarted all root attempts. One thing we have to remember those is that, the phone isn’t out yet. Only SOME preorders have it, who knows what developers will be receiving the phone later or waiting ’til it actually hits stores to purchase one. Those who have it already may just not be experienced enough to unlock the bootloader, thought about that?
Anyways yesterday, as more and more preorders were being sent out, a certain dev, by the alias “InvisibleK“, has achieved root on the Verizon Galaxy S 3. Happy now everyone? Jeez you could atleast give the phone a few days before the outcries. Here’s a statement from InvisibleK:
“Big thanks to AdamLange for the stock ROM, Rizdroid for his guide that he loosely followed over at XDA Developers that he used to build a rooted system image and E4GT Team for the Clockwork Mod recovery they built.”
He has released all the information you’ll need over on Rootzwiki, a lovely forum for all things Android, and tweets about updates all the time on Twitter. His twitter name obviously being @InvisibleK, so follow him to receive timely updates. Also head on over to Rootzwiki to get all the tools to get ya rooted.
Once again, congratulation to Invisiblek on the achievement, and people….get the phones and developers a few days before you get your pitchforks and torches. ಠ_ಠ
