Hey guys, Im probably going to be going to switch from my GN2 to S4 soon and I want to still run ROM's on my phone. I've read a lot of threads on here about the locked bootloader issues and having to use safestrap.

If I go buy a new S4 at best buy, which firmware do I need to look for to be able to unlock without using safestrap method? Is it pre mdk?

Mdk is your only option if you want to have a custom recovery
