Prompt [Q] HOW TO unlock bootloader on android 4.4.2 CM 11 Galaxy S3

Hi. I have question about bootloader . I am not 100% sure if i have unlocked bootloader so could somebody can tell me how to do it properly , safely on Galaxy S3 with 4.4.2 android ( with Cyanogenmod 11 ) ?

I was given a answer in my first post that i have unlocked bootloader beacause i have installed the CM11 with their installer . But after trying to find a answer if i have unlocked bootloader on other sites in the mean time of waiting for answer here , i found a lot of contrary info, so i am a little scared to try with bigger mods to my phone ( kernel) . So - how to unlock bootloader on my specs ? or how to check if i have this already ? thanks

Bootloader on the S3 is not locked, there are no 'unlocked' versions as it was never locked in the first place. S3 is easy to flash and mod, but also to destroy in the process, backup your efs is the primary concern.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.
