EZ-Unlock App Will Unlock Your Verizon Galaxy S3 Bootloader In 1 Click

Yesterday, we brought you the news of Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S3 finally getting it’s bootloader unlocked thanks to the trickery of some devs on XDA. The process was fairly simple and required entering only a few command lines in terminal. Nothing too complicated.

Well, if using ADB isn’t your particular cup of tea — and really, I wouldn’t blame you — developers on RootzWiki posted a simple 1-click app — now available in the Play Store — that can solve that nasty locked bootloader problem you’ve been having (root required).

In fact, it’s almost too easy. There’s long been talk from Android modders and users that apps like this are more of a disservice to the community than a help, but I’m inclined to disagree. I, for one, judge future Android purchases by how easy they are to root and unlock and grow weary of staying up all night rooting, with near brick scares, as I try and get AOSP running on my device. It’s like I’ve always said, when it comes to the Android modding community, the more the merrier.

I think it goes without saying to tread carefully. Root, messing with your phones bootloader, and software hacks almost always result in a voiding of your warranty.

    Couldn’t you just use Casual and Root, Flash CWM and unlock with the same clicks for each script?

      I spent 9 hours trying to root my G1. Up all night. Slept a few hours. Woke up. Finished rooting. Most satisfying experience of my life….

        S-off for my Rezound was the same, but much worse psychologically. No matter how many users do it safely, intentionally shorting out your phone is scary. But afterward, I wished I smoked so I could light a cigarette. My little Android bundle of joy….
