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

mkitchin 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.

That is why with mixed emotions we announced the end of that free hostname program today, officially turning down on May 7th.
