AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4 Bootloader Unlocked

Many AT&T Galaxy S4 owners were very disappointed that their flagship phone was riddled with the issue of a locked bootloader, meaning any desires of flashing a custom ROM were destroyed. Though root access was gained on all the S4 variants on the U.S carriers, it still meant you were limited to Samsung's own flavor of Android. 

Luckily this has changed thanks to Dan Rosenberg  who had tweeted an image earlier today showing an unlocked bootloader running on the AT&T S4. Dan had also confirmed that it has allowed him flash custom recoveries and kernels (and of course, ROMs). He's also certain that his method should work for Verizon's variant of the S4 as well. Though he hasn't released any unlocking software yet, in fear that the carriers may plug up the hole before launch. This should pave the way for ROM development and bring even more features to the S4.
