I came from an unlocked s3 before I purchased a phone from Swappa and it is rooted and works fine. However, it has a pink theme and I am not into it. Additionally, I want to upgrade the rom if possible.
The issue is that I don't know if I need safestrap or of it has an unlocked bootloader. The reason why is from what I have read, the mj7 baseband is locked down. However, the phone seems to be running a custom kernel, which from what I have read is not possible on a locked down version. Is it possible that the baseband is just the one used by the custom rom?
Is there a definitive way to know if I can install roms without safestrap?
Thanks for your help!
