Unlock the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II Bootloader – XDA Developer TV

Recently, resident hardware hacker, XDA Elite Recognized Developer, and XDA Developer TV Producer AdamOutler got his hands on a Verizon variant of the new Samsung Galaxy Note II. He assembled a team of experts including Recognized Developer Ralekdev and fellow Elite Recognized Developer Rebellos. With a group this talented, they had the bootloader unlocked in no time. Why does Verizon even try?

This exploit involves installing Revision ROM as an Odin package, running CASUAL to exploit, and flashing the custom bootloader and TWRP recovery. It then ends by booting back into the ROM. Remember to boot back into the ROM. This is important because you wont get LTE back until CASUAL completes and tells you that you are unlocked. So grab a chair and check out this video.

WARNING: DO NOT FLASH ANYTHING WITH a sboot.bin!!

This will either relock your device or render it inoperable.


Update: Due to the evolving nature of this exploit please check the forum thread to get the latest instructions. Also, please read this warning!
