I even had a look to see if it's possible to flash non-stock roms with it and from what I understand it's totally possible.
So my question is: What's the point of unlocking the bootloader on non-DE devices (with, say, the chinese middleman method, which costs about 40-50$), when you can simply bypass the protected /system directory by using safestrap?
If I understand though, the only real limitation is that we have to wait for the sbf of the newer versions of android to be released for our specific device, in order to flash the correct kernels and all. I think.
Please correct my statements as they may be wrong, and thanks for your replies!
