    I work in a Tech related field. Have been in a tec

    why is this titled something to do with SBF? ...op can you please change it. People are going to storm this thread thinking it has something to do with a working SBF when actually it is regarding unlocking the boot loader.

    Sorry I was typing while reading another thread. It should be changed to working on unlocked bootloader.

    Those were not unlocked (as in by a dev), per se, but instead were leaked pre-unlocked bootloaders released into the wild, from what I read over at XDA

    Sad indeed. I wish I wasn't lazy and proficient enough to dab into the phone's software myself.

    I followed the link and it did want a login. I did it again after your post and then it worked. If I hadn't posted and you hadn't responded it still wouldn't have worked. The universe us a strange place.

    If you click the link it is a direct link to his tweet about how he's playing with the bootloader and such
