[News] Verizon Galaxy Note 2's bootloader unlocked
Now this news will probably not mean much to a lot of folks, but for those precious few Android enthusiasts who enjoy "modding" their phones...this is a great day. The good folks over at XDA Developers have found an exploit that allows the bootloader of the Verizon Galaxy Note 2 to be unlocked. This allows for a variety of custom options to be flashed onto the device, including a custom recovery, kernels, and ROMs. If you're like me and have a desire to always tinker with your device, the Galaxy Note 2 (already a great smartphone) just got a little better.
This link to the chaps over at Droid-Life includes some more info, along with the video on how its done. You might want to make a "Note" of it if you are thinking about picking up this phone and messing around with it.
