Some news that it might be unlocked would be awesome; or, worst case, to know nobody is working on it so I can get over it and try to return it and replace it with something less Samsung-encumbered.
There are a few people still working on it, but their chances are slim to none of ever unlocking it. There's been a $5k bounty on unlocking this phone for the last 7 months with no luck. If you want a VZW S4 that you can flash ROM's on, get a Dev edition or an MDK build off Swappa.

I'm a software developer so I understand a bit of what the first post was talking about but I'm not great at reverse engineering (but know how difficult it is). I wish I had the skillsets to help :/ Though, as you said, it is good to see people working together but bad that hellsdroid looks like he has legal issues precluding him from working on things at the moment...
