    Default Unlock 4.4 bootloader?

    I unfortunately installed the 4.3 ota update when it was pushed to my phone. Would installing the 4.4 update allow me to unlock the bootloader?

    Probably not. Unless Samsung allowed it to be unlocked.

    Sprint GS3s don't have locked bootloaders, do they? OP, is your phone a Sprint version? Exactly what are you trying to accomplish by unlocking?

    You can't put a ROM from one phone (S5) on a different phone (S3). That's about the most certain way to brick your device there is.
