Got this wonderful idea from @open1your1eyes0 in the Verizon thread so I figured I'd post it over here.

The other bounty thread was almost dead, this one is explicit and serious (and for the new firmware), you are asked NOT to make a pledge and then not pay when and/or if these methods become known.

Bounty Details:

Quote:

As I'm sure you all know already AT&T released an update on July, 9 2013 with the build number UCUAMF3. This update blocked the motochopper exploit and Loki exploit.Samsung / AT&T blew a QFUSE when they sent the update to our devices.

This means you cannot downgrade from MF3 as the device will not accept it as the monotonic counter went up and cannot go backwards from this point. There would need to be some different kind of exploit to allow a custom recovery to be ran on MF3. If you change the boot loader in any way you the device will NOT accept it and you may be met with a hard brick. (Thanks @Aou)

This thread is a last cause to speak to get each and every developer and 'mastermind' to become Very encouraged to either unlock our devices permanently or Root and allow us to use custom recoveries just like the LOKI method did.



Root and Recovery Bounty

[*]Please note once you make a post with your contribution you may not withdraw it at any time and are responsible for paying out once the bounty is claimed. The only changes that can be made are another post raising the prices if you choose so. No exceptions!
[*]Please be advised that if AT&T or Samsung is to release an official method of unlocking the bootloader (extremely unlikely but must be accounted for) prior to any member of XDA's submission, this bounty automatically becomes invalidated.
