I have heard that trying to downgrade will trip Knox and your phone will be bricked. So basically my question is would this work..
**also my contract is about to end, once it ends will Verizon have to unlock my boot loader?
That link had been posted in this forum before. It is for the international version of the s3. It will not work on the Verizon version and will brick your phone. You cannot downgrade the Verizon s3 from 4.3 or higher.
No, Verizon does not have to unlock your bootloader when your contract ends. They have to SIM unlock your phone so it can be used on other carriers. Wrong unlock.
