I had previously mentioned to, Count me in on this. I'm pledging $20 for workaround and $20 for fully unlocked bootloader. Well you can double it and I don't give a damn about tripping Knox. I just want root privileges.

3rd post is updated.

Please look at the very bottom of it. If your name is there, please PM me with what section you are pledging.

Root for KK using any exploit new or old. (without tripping knox) Looking at Zimperlich though.

Unlocked bootloader for KK (workaround or full) something like Loki. Not SS. SS does not allow kernels.

I pledge-

1. $10 for Root for KK using any exploit
2. $10 for an unlocked Bootloader, workaround or full.

Yes please

Amen, brother. Same thing happened to me. I really need root back again. I'm so sad right now :(



I've never been so frustrated over a phone... Ever. . Like it's totally my fault for not looking into 4.4.2 before I hit download but I'm still pissed. I check this thread everyday trying to stay hopeful that someone will figure this out (before the note 4 comes out) but everyday it seems like this just isn't happening. I work for Samsung and I've been looking internally to see if anyone had figured it out and still nothing. I'm really thinking about ditching the phone for the m8 or a note from a different carrier. But in the spirit of being hopeful I pledge 20 for a work around. 20 for unlocked bootloader. 30 for root . Keeping my fingers crossed. Someone please figure this out!!!!

    Rules.
    All donations are pledges until the exploits are confirmed.

    There is no money up front. NONE

    There are 3 categories.

    Root for KK using any exploit new or old. (without tripping knox) Looking at Zimperlich though.

    Unlocked bootloader for KK (workaround or full) something like Loki. Not SS. SS does not allow kernels.

    Leave a comment with how much you will pledge and what category. You can pledge to both.

    I will make a reserved post for names and donation amounts.

    I will discuss payment methods with the moderators. I believe they should be the ones to handle it. After recent events, I do not want any users to catch any flack if something goes awry. I trust the mods more.

    MODERATOR EDIT - ZERO OFF TOPIC DISCUSSION. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BOOTLOADER UNLOCK AND SAFE STRAP HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED. TROLLS WILL BE MET WITH A RAGING ORC, AND ANYTHING NOT RELATED TO THE PURPOSE OF THIS THREAD AND/OR PLEDGES WILL BE CLEANED.

    $50 IN BITCOIN (Will have to discuss this with a mod.)

    My math is probably wrong. When I write it down or hop on my computer, I will double check. As of right now, these are close but rough estimates.


    This section is for people that did not specify the section. Please PM me if your name is here with the section you are pledging to.
    @moonmanxo $15 @Neroga $50

    Ok, thread cleaned of all off topic chatter, arguing and nonsense. Hope the little vacation made it obvious that we're serious about the no off topic chatter.

    Look what we have here.. @djrbliss aka Dan Rosenberg (he found Loki exploit) is at it again.

    After providing a review of prior work in TrustZone exploitation, this talk will describe a previously unpublished vulnerability in this TrustZone implementation, and provide details on steps taken to exploit this vulnerability. The talk will conclude with a discussion of the ramifications of this vulnerability and others like it, including a live demonstration of using it to permanently unlock the bootloader of a major Android phone.

    https://www.blackhat.com/us-14/briefings.html#reflections-on-trusting-trustzone

    We won't find out the exact details until the Black Hat 2014 conference which is in early August :)

    I am raising my pledge to $1000 USD. Previous allowances still apply. My device is still available to test.
