Not a dumb question at all, I was actually looking at it last night (just preliminary analsis) trying to see what I could find. I was trying to see how/where Samsung gives Verizon and others vendors its signature to see if there was something we could do kind of similar to how "Master Key" exploit works, except on kernel level instead of the system level since we already have root.
