Unlock the bootloader on the J3 Prime

This petition had 307 supporters

For many years we have had samsung devices in the united states that are not from at&t and verizon that have no locked bootloaders. But suddenly you samsung have randomly decided to betray android users/enthusiasts by locking the bootloader on most devices even on a budget device called the j3 prime. We ask samsung to release a system update allowing the bootloader to be unlocked without the need for any exploits. We have paid for our devices and we should be able to choose what we want to do with it whether it is to use it to improve our coding skills by using terminal emulator with root and busybox, or to simply remove apps that we cannot remove because it is installed in the system directory and tweak our device to improve performance and battery life. Even to install a custom recovery that actually works like a recovery and restores stuff you backup. Root access, custom roms, and custom recoveries are very important to a large community of people seeking to improve their device which is one thing that you fail to do samsung. You even discriminate against budget devices by releasing lots of updates to the flagships but budget devices are left with one update if there is ever one besides a simple security patch. We ask that you support budget devices the same way you support flagships. not everyone can afford a $700 phone.
