Default [Q] How to describe to someone about mdk bootloader

I'm trying G to find an s4 with mdk around here. How would I explain to people to look at their phone to determine if it's still MDK? I know about the baseband being mdk, but I was told that doesn't always match up. Thanks for the help.

If you download "phone info" app.... You can run it and will show all pertinent phone info... So it's easy to see if it's a MDK phone.... As it will indicate the bootloader version.

To be honest anyone with an MDK phone at this point will know it, they would have to have a reason to deny OTA's for over a year right?

I figure so, but around here, who knows.

Like Josh said.... You're not going to find someone who just happens to be on MDK and doesn't know it... Most likely.

Theyd have to take steps to stop any updates. There's people on here who clearly knew they were on MDK and still somehow " accidentally" took an update and locked the phone right up lol
