Back in late August mine came MDK, the gold of Verizon S4's (can bypass bootloader and do EVERYTHING!).... other than Dev edition... I guess that'd be platinum actually XD

Well you're most like gonna get one running mj7 or mk2 which means you can root then install safestrap which isn't a custom recovery but it's still a gift Hashcode has given us .

As of right now yes. TW based and they must be based on our phones version too ie: mj7 mk2 etc
Hey its better than nothing! And actually there are a couple others in the works too. There's also still a talented group of devs looking into unlocking or bypassing our locked down bootloader too.


Verizon Galaxy S4
SafeStrapped
Hyperdrive 12
Omega Rom

Sprint Galaxy S4
Philz Touch Recovery
Carbon 4.4

Think I have another saved I'll look then edit this post

Here's a Knox thread to which can be very interesting
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2447832

There's people looking into these things on both the s4 and note 3 so the info can be spread about a little.

I wonder if they'll ever get there... I'm starting to think about dumping my S4. I couldn't handle poor performance and Touchwiz
