I was on a call to Verizon, 4G in my area is weak, and the SU popped up and asked for permissions to MY VERIZON App??

was Verizon looking into my phone during the call to them?

It's more likely that it was coincidental. Did the app update right before? The most recent update looks for root access.

I did just get some updates but I don't know why the "my Verizon App" would need root access :rolleyes:

It doesn't. They are testing to see if you do

After I seen the first SU request from Verizon I killed that app.  I also have heard of a rumor that there is going to be a lockoem.apk that will relock bootloaders.  Has anyone heard of this?

The bootloaders on the HD and M cannot be relocked. It's a blown e-fuse that cannot be reversed.

There is a way, but it would involve repurposing another fuse and there is no way that would happen thru an apk. Rumors are just that. Let's do our part and keep them at bay.

That is good news.  Just wanted to make sure our sneaky provider isn't going to twist it after what we payed to have it inserted LOL. With them it's always BOHICA!
