And this is precisely what the users of the Galaxy Z Fold3 had to “suffer”, who suddenly found that Samsung had introduced additional protection systems about their very expensive folding smartphones that caused the blocking certain basic functions in case the user opens the boot loader to load software modifications.
Samsung received a lot of criticism, certainly, which explained the movement vaguely around the Knox security requirementsbut without leaving us with logical reasons that would justify the deactivation, for example, of a camera system which stopped working completely once the bootloader was opened and until the user locked it again.
Samsung leaves behind the additional protection systems included with the Galaxy Z Fold3, and once again allows Galaxy S22 users to open the ‘bootloader’ without compensation or loss of functionality.
Fortunately, the Galaxy S22, S22 + and Galaxy S22 Ultra bring good news to the most geeks of the place, and it is that Samsung has chosen to return to its more permissive policies and not block the functionality of your new flagship to those who want to modify them.
