It has been an ongoing battle between consumers and Verizon when it comes to locked bootloaders. The Samsung Galaxy S3 was no exception, once released developers announced that the device’s Bootloader was indeed locked. Samsung’s solution to the issue was to provide a Developer Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S 3 for Verizon, which includes a simple solution to unlock the bootloader. That assured the possibility for developer support for the SGS3 on the largest network in the USA.
