comment What is the difference between: Rooting, Jailbreak, ROM, Mod, etc.?
But isn't there a difference between SIM unlocking and bootloader unlocking? If so, then I guess there are essentially only 3 major steps involved in bypassing the phone's limitations: 1) SIM unlocking/subsidy unlocking; 2) bootloader unlocking (which, I suppose, allows installation of custom firmware); and 3) rooting the device. Or are (2) and (3) here essentially the same? So confusing...
