Looking to spice up your Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II with fancy custom ROMS? Flash away (at your own risk, of course) — the bootloader is now unlocked thanks to the crew at XDA Developers.

You really should know what you’re doing before you go poking around with the phone, though. The developer who published the tool has admitted that there are still a few bugs and some users aren’t getting the bootloader unlocked properly. The last thing you need is a bricked Note II, right?

So, as always, back up your content and try to follow instructions as closely as possible. The guide can be found in the video above.
