HTC announced yesterday that it will continue to ship Android devices with padlocks strapped on to the devices’ bootloaders, but the locks can be opened with an HTC-developed Web-based tool. In a Facebook note posted…
For those of you that own the HTC Desire Z, HTC ChaCha, HTC Aria, Droid Incredible, HTC Status, or the T-Mobile G2, it’s time to head over to HTC’s Developer website and unlock the bootloader on these phones. Yesterday afternoon HTC added those seven devices to their bootloader unlock tool and to the HTCDev website.
If you own any of these devices and want to get the bootloader unlocked, hit up the source link below and get the process started. It’s actually pretty easy as long as you follow the directions HTC gives you on their Developer Portal. If you want to find out if your bootloader is locked or not you can simply power down your device then press the Power button and Volume down together, you will be booted into the bootloader and at the top of the screen it will say “LOCKED” or “UNLOCKED”, if your locked let’s go unlock it for you.
Have you unlocked your bootloader yet? Hit up the comments and let us know how hard or easy it was.
