[Mobile Cellphone Info] Galaxy S 4 Bootloader Attack Already Teased

Mobile Cellphone Info has posted a new item, 'Galaxy S 4 Bootloader Attack
Already Teased'

Yesterday, we got confirmation that the bootloader on the AT&T Galaxy S 4 was
locked, and rumors suggested similar fates for the phone on other carriers.
While not everyone is even going to care about a thing like a locked bootloader,
those of you who love tricking-out your phones with custom ROMs were no doubt a
little bummed. Thats why were glad to see that progress is already being made to
free these phones from their chains, with evidence arriving of a bootloader
Noted Android hacker Dan Rosenberg posted the above picture to his Twitter
account, which sure enough, appears to show that hes compromised the bootloaders
integrity. While its not mentioned in that tweet, other sites report hearing
from their contacts that this attack could be possible on all locked versions of
the GS4.
Now, we still dont know how close this exploit might be towards becoming an
easy-to-use tool ready for public distribution, or even if thats what Rosenberg
has in mind for his work, but dang it if this doesnt have us cautiously
optimistic for the future of development work on the Galaxy S 4.
