Hi all,
I looked around and it seems to me there is currently no way to unlock the bootloader on the Verizon Note 2 w/ 4.3 Jellybean installed. I have my phone rooted, but I would really like to install CM. Do any of you know if we're getting closer to a method to unlock the bootloader? Is there already one? Will we never get one? Just an update is all I'm looking for. Really appreciate all answers. Thanks a lot!

Actually, that downgrades your phone to a version that still has the unlockable bootloader, it doesn't unlock the 4.3 bootloader. Granted, that the end point is essentially the same, it is a different methodology.

My actual bootloader version is I605VRALJB (4.11). I unlocked long ago with Adams original method...pre Casual...lol. So being able to go back to the 4.12 bootloader would be a good thing for people stuck on 4.3 and locked bootloader. It would allow the flashing of ROMs and custom recovery...the end goal...as you mentioned, but ...true it is not a 4.3 bootloader unlock....lol

Check it out, they can do it and what a great job they do. I just got mine back from then and it was on 4.3 OTA with locked bootloader. Now I'm on 4.1.2 and unlocked bootloader. Just flashed kitkat and TWRP . Josh will treat you right.
