Well thats what you get when you leave essential details behind.

Here is the forum.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s4-att/general

There are plenty of guides there to unlock your bootloader.

thanks

well i didn't realize that there were so many different models or S4

regardless, in that forum it does not appear that they have managed to unlock that bootloader. At all. If you are seeing something different please let me know.

and what I don't understand is how I was able to install a custom rom in under 10 minutes back in Jun 2013, when I first got this phone. Now after 5 days of trying different things I'm hearing it's literally impossible?

I think i know the problem.. So after u installed root and "got an application attempted to access something unauthorized and has been blocked". U MAY have triggered knox and thats why custom recovery is not working. Also knox will try to stop superuser/superSU from working.

The solution: http://www.droidviews.com/disable-kn...alaxy-devices/

Use this guide.. There are 2 methods. I am 99.9% sure this will work for you. The target is knox so this guide will tell u how to remove it.

If the above fails look for a guide on xda how to remove knox or do it yourself by deleting all the files that say knox.

So far as I know a custom recovery has nothing to do with Knox. Knox only works inside Android and not before Android is even booted.

For example you don't need to be rooted to have a custom recovery. That are two different things.

Yes but when you root the phone and trigger knox it becomes hard to flash custom recovery because of the saftey feature which obvs is online when the phone boots.

Im custom os and even when i still boot up i have some writing on the left hand side which wasnt there before i rooted. And even though knox is out the system and im not on sam os im still not able to use triangle away for some odd reason

there is nothing in that other forum that successfully gets around the bootloader being locked, apparently

so this phone is unflashable with a custom rom now, for good?
