Ugh..... They would block it the day before the release. Verizon ticks me off so bad sometimes.

Thanks for the heads up.

Anyone else confirm the shutdown of the unlock function? That may change my mind on the DNA.

I don't see this preventing S-Off. Just delaying some of the fun you might have had in the meantime.

Care to elaborate? I am looking into buying this phone and I am sure everyone else wants to know as well. Thanks.

I cannot promise anything. Let's be clear on that.

But I am 90% sure we will have an unlock method tomorrow after I get my retail device. It will not be my work, but I will be testing it and posting the results.

Even if we do not get unlock, I am sure we will at the very least find a temp root, which is all that is required for S-Off testing to continue.

Basically, they may have slowed us down, but they have not stopped us yet.

Thanks for clarifying. I am glad to see you in this forum. I know that you've been an asset to our community since at least the thunderbolt days.

Wish you all the best with that, and hoping to see you come up with full S-OFF ASAP. =)

It's sad to hear how Verizon is slowing down development on this phone but this is the first phone I might not root. I am really interested in using Google wallet and on my nexus 7 in could not use it if I was rooted. I really hope that updates come faster on this phone which will be another reason not to need root or Roms.

The only thing i would like to have root for is to delete apps I won't use.

I pre-ordered but they still have not charged me yet.
