Default [Q] bootloader.. is different from note3?

Or to be more specific, is the bootloader of the note 3 unlocked yet? If it is what makes it so dificult to have our mega to unlock.

Yes..Every single different device has a unique bootloader, just as they have specific firmware, modems, and kernels. If you mean does the mega i527, have a similar locked bootloader to the att note 3, then yes i believe so. Although, the method would be similar to unlock it, we have yet to break the note 3 n900a, we only have safestrap a custom recovery workaround. I have an att note 3 running safestrap, a note 2 att i317 that just got 4.3 and they locked the bootloader on the 4.3 update so. I guess just be are from now on, all att devices will have locked bootloader unfortunately.

Well it seems that there is a lot to do... we will keep waiting for some kind of upgrades on the bootloader..
