+ - Verizon Galaxy S5 Bounty for Root Tops $3,000 in One Night->

mkitchin (1285710) writes "Every time a new device is released and then rooted or unlocked, it’s probably safe to assume that the carriers and manufacturers are simply learning from those exploits, patching them, and then making it even harder the next time around for developers to get busy. Thus is more than likely the case with the new Samsung Galaxy S5. We have seen some international units receive root, but a couple of the carrier variants, including the model from Verizon, hasn’t been as lucky. So what happens when a phone hasn’t been rooted and the tinkering community gets antsy? A bounty is born, of course.

mkitchin (1285710) writes "For the last 15 years, all of us at Dyn have taken pride in offering a free version of our Dynamic DNS Pro product. What was originally a product built for a small group of users has blossomed into an exciting technology used around the world.
That is why with mixed emotions we announced the end of that free hostname program today, officially turning down on May 7th."
