I assume it is an international version and hence sim- unlocked. So my question is does being sim- unlocked means bootloader unlocked?
Having done some research I know after updating to 4.3 I would have to unlock the bootloader before rooting.
So how would I check whether the bootloader is unlocked? I have found various methods for HTC or Sony smartphones but there doesn't seem to be one for Samsung Galaxy devices.
This is my first post in this forum so please let me know if I am missing any information. Thank you
