Default Anyone try Towelroot?

Has anyone tried Towelroot on the S4 NC5 build?

Is this going to unlock the bootloader?

We really seem to have failed in helping people to understand this, as Towelroot users are now bricking phones right and left by people who root bootloader locked phones then use Goo Manager and the like to try to flash custom recovery and fail.

If your bootloader is locked, you can't flash custom recovery or custom kernel. It doesn't matter if you're rooted or not.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

It DOES trigger the Custom padlock. With root access you can install Xposed Framework and one of modules allows you to reset that back to Original boot screen.

I think triangle away will work also. I haven't tried yet, but removed the custom screen with the mk2 build after that was rooted with saferoot.
