HTC has officially agreed that the locked bootloader policy should not be needed, and therefore has announced it will not exist on HTC devices going forward. Unfortunately, those wit a new HTC Thunderbolt, Evo 3D, Incredible S or Sensation are stuck with it, at least until HTC puts an update out for those in the future…keep the hope alive.

There has been overwhelmingly customer feedback that people want access to open bootloaders on HTC phones. I want you to know that we’ve listened. Today, I’m confirming we will no longer be locking the bootloaders on our devices. Thanks for your passion, support and patience.
