in all seriousness, im pretty sure this petition was dead, and even if the signatures were met, what exactly would happen? verizon is known not to give a **** about angry geeks like us. verizon is so anti-root and anti-good-business-practices it isn't even funny. it's borderline illegal (im sure their practices have caused obscene GPL violations before)
samsung seems a little bit more open to that, every other version of the s4 (with the exception of at&t) has an unlockable bootloader, but like i said that **** should be mandatory.
such a shame because this phone has great hardware. software is usually easily fixed, but not in this case, my friends. i'm hopeful, i think Dan's exploit will do SOMETHING for us, and we have quite a few talented devs in these realms, plus the kexec idea (aosp kernel) is getting thrown around again. but who knows, maybe we're just talking out of our you-know-whats and eventually nothing's gonna get done and then someone's gonna sell an MDK S4 for $1,523 on ebay.
a funny blurb about something goes here.
