Default Update to Casual for unlocking 4.3?

Does anyone know if there is going to be an upcoming update to the Casual software for unlocking bootloader on the newest firmware (MJ9) on the verizon galaxy note 2?
Or is there another tool for doing that?
I mistakenly did the OTA from verizon and I now I am unable to find a method for unlocking bootloader to install a custom recovery. Is safestrap possible for note 2?

thanks

I agree it worked for rooting the device, but I still can't install custom recovery, which means the bootloader is still locked. Anyway to unlock that?

Yes that works for rooting and no there is no way to currently unlock the bootloader on the 4.3 OTA.

Anyone tried heimdall to install any custom recovery? It works for other devices to get cm installer, why not i605?

Locked bootloader

Sent from my SCH-I605 using xda app-developers app
Please note, I do not do ROM support via PM. If you have a question, ask in the device thread. Thanks.
