Hi Guys,

Verizon model is protected from flashing unsigned/modified boot.img and recovery.img. Which means there is no known root method as for now for SCH-I535.
Stay tuned for more informations as we are doing research now.

Rooted stock boot.img issue:


<ID:0/008> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/008> boot.img
<ID:0/008> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/008> FAIL! (Auth)

CWM Recovery.img flash issue:


<ID:0/003> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/003> recovery.img
<ID:0/003> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/003> Complete(Write) operation failed.

Research status: 10%


+ 10% - phone rooted trough system.img tricks -> (by invisiblek)

ROM analysys:

boot.img -> signed
recovery.img -> signed
system.img -> not signed
cache.img -> not signed

Update [7/7/2012]

News about locked Verizon model is spreading over the websites and main tech-related portals. Hopefully we will get some detailed info soon.

Update [7/7/2012]

It looks like it has been rooted by using system.img trick (system.img is not signed)
Enjoy! and thanx to invisiblek good job!
