Verizon Samsung Galaxy S III Unboxed the XDA Way – XDA Developer TV

In this episode of Unboxing the XDA Way, XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler unboxes The Verizon Galaxy S3 The XDA Way. After demonstrating the activation bypass, he goes on to give a close-up of the motherboard, talks about the hardware, and follows up with a JTAG demonstration.

Now the Verizon variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III is famous for having a locked bootloader. However, Adam shows that not even a locked up bootloader can stop him and the knowledgeable members at XDA. He shows a piece of software he wrote called CASUAL, which handles rooting, bootloader unlocking, and installing ClockworkMod Recovery—all of which are your basic required tools to install custom ROMs like CyanogenMod 10 and AOKP. Be sure to check this video out!
