You do know that "secureboot" has nothing to do with unlocking the bootloader. Even the old s3 had secureboot enabled and still let you flash recovery.

Samsung’s secure boot feature only allows kernels with the company’s RSA-2048 digital signature to boot the device. So this just means we might be able to flash a kernel & if lucky a recovery but the bootloader is still locked.

I realize and know that. But there has to be some importance to it right? Like allowing to downgrade bootloader or something.

It means we could flash kernels & recovery. But the bootloader is still technically locked. Still, very good progress being made.

I could live with that. What more do we need haha. Flash custom kernel + Kn0xraid = Victory in my book.

Nothing ever stoppled you from flashing kernels, it stopped your from booting them, and it still does.

This bootloader was not exploited, and not unlocked.

Closing thread because I am tired of this drama.

Also, Adam posted someone else's picture, not his work and not his device.
I'm taking a break of an undetermined length. Please don't contact me about exploits
