Locked bootloaders can be a real drag. While it's possible to circumvent these security measures on the GS4, it can be a messy process. Maybe a developer edition device is the way to go? Well, Verizon customers can finally buy the developer edition Galaxy S4 from Samsung for the paltry sum of $649. The AT&T developer edition is still missing in action.
This device first appeared on the Samsung site along side the AT&T model in May. Ma Bell's dev edition then disappeared, leaving the Verizon phone listed as out of stock. Now that you can buy it, but only in Mist Black.
