Quick question, switching from iPhone to Note 4, first time android user. I have been hearing a lot about a unlocked bootloader. Did some research and still a little confused about what the difference is between an unlocked phone and a unlocked bootloader. What are the advantages of having one or the other || are they one in the same ?
After returning my phone to stock, I have left the bootloader unlocked and successfully performed 1 OTA update.
Is it OK to lock the bootloader now and should future OTA's update successfully? I read on XDA that you have to do at least one update before locking bootloader - I have seen some having issues performing at OTA update with an unlocked bootloader...
I have the AT&T Galaxy S3 on 4.1.2 and want to root for the first time. I've looked around and have seen that chainfire would be a good way for a beginner like me to use. I was going to do it, but then I read something that said the Bootloader had to be unlocked. I don't know what a bootloader is and if mine is unlocked.
Like the title says. Im selling my N5 to someone and they don't want cm11s. If i flash back to my stock+root+unlocked bootloader, then factory reset to wipe all my data will they be able to get the OTA? I dont care if the bootloader is still unlocked i just want them to get updates.
I have a gs4 with an unlocked bootloader (MDK baseband). The data port on mine went south, so I'm looking for another one on swappa. I found one but the baseband does not have mdk in it. It's rooted with 4.4.4, so I know it has an unlocked bootloader. The phone I have now has the mdk in the baseband. My question is how can this be?
