Same song different tune. Bounty for the Galaxy S4 Active i537 bootloader unlock method

Bootloader unlock must be repeatable by the average user it also must be stable
It can also be a work around to allow custom recoveries, roms, and kernels to be flashed be the basic user:

Pledges:
_MetalHead_ $50
yankeesfan714 $25
Marvelicious75 $15
msn.debord $20 (user backed out)
sc0tty8 $10
daugh016 $20

muqali$50
tabish121 $40
DeathIYIetal $150

Total: $1155

(if you made a pledge but changed your mind or if I missed your pledge please PM me)

I was asked what the process would be once a exploit is found. Once it is found we will wait for the dev to specify how he wants the money sent. Usually it is just a donation to their paypal account. On rare occasions the dev will just say they want money donated to charity but that is rare and the dev should get paid for their hard work. I will follow up to make sure everyone pays.

This is gonna be a hard one to achieve, not because it's going to be difficult but because the S4 Active is an AT&T exclusive and the international variant doesn't seem that popular.

Need an Active forum on here. No pun intended haha

Absolutely. Use Titanium Backup to back up all the stock apps just in case, and then delete or freeze them.

That is what I did... I took out the bloat apps... Honestly the bootloader for me is a "in the long run" thing. I am more than happy with the current state of my S4 Active, just wouldn't mind the early update and future mods that require a flash

Me too. I've already debloated and used FolderMount to move my big games to the external SD card so the bootloader unlock can wait as long as it needs too. The stock ROM on here is blazing fast and has everything I need. I am a happy camper.

It'd be pretty cool if he just completely hacks it. =p
