Just curious.
The reason I ask is because when I asked the Samsung rep at Best Buy if we could get the dev edition firmware for the Vzw S4 and N3 last night, he said he couldnt get into it much but that there was a way to get them and it had already been done on the S4. He said there is an S4 thread on xda where they extracted the signed dev firmware. (Yes, he referred me to my own S4 thread. ) When I got into more detail about it he got more reluctant to talk about it and eventually refused to answer and then walked away.
