Ok the galaxy s4 active SGH-I537 are all the bootloaders locked or not as i have read some post here and else where that say some are and others are not when I go into Odin Mode i get

Odin Mode
Product Name: SGH-I537
Current Binary: Samsung Offical
System Status: Offical
Knox Kernel Lock: 0x0
Knox Warrenty Void: 0x0
CSD-Config-Lsb:0x30
Write Protection: Enable
eMC Burst Mode enabled


Now judging by reading this i am assuming that it is locked just looking for confirmation. The Reason I ask is i am wanting to dual boot the Phone with this http://www.efytimes.com/e1/fullnews.asp?edid=125119. For ubuntu touch although it says i need to have an unlocked phone and rooted which mine is rooted however they do not specifiy whether or not the mean sim unlocked or bootloader unlocked and i am going to take a shot in the dark and say they are meaning bootloader unlocked. if so would there be a possability to load the dual boot under safestrap ?

The i537 has a locked bootloader, the i9295 does not. You cannot flash ROMs on the i537 like you can on the i9295.
