“E-Z Unlock” App to Unlock Your Verizon Samsung Galaxy S3 Bootloader

Yesterday, Samsung Galaxy S3 owners were graced with the ability to flash an insecure bootloader onto their “locked” devices, paving the way for full phone customization. Victory rang from sea to shining sea, at least for those with the technical know-how running Linux or Mac on their desktops. If you were on Windows, you were told to patiently wait in the corner. That is, until today.

Thanks to Android  developer mmmeff, all you have to do is root your Galaxy S3, visit the play store, and click a massive unlock button. Yes, it is seriously that easy. At the time of this writing, this method only unlocks the device and does not re-lock it. Developers are looking into that capability in the future.

    So it’s pointless?
