AT&T One X: How to unlock your phone’s bootloader

by: Paul NuñalMay 31, 2012

Say goodbye to locked HTC bootloaders as the folks at the XDA Developers Forum have once again made the impossible a reality. HTC owners have already witnessed firsthand how hard it is to crack HTC bootloaders, most especially those devices that are coming from mobile carriers. The AT&T One X may be one of the first phones to sport a quad-core processor, but it’s also one of the many HTC devices that sport a locked bootloader.

Having an unlocked bootloader is necessary for users to install custom ROMs and other modified hacks on your device. If you have been addicted to flashing custom ROMs in the past, then certainly a locked bootloader will spoil all your [...]

by: Alvin YbañezMay 17, 2012

The HTC One V already carries Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with a dose of HTC Sense 4.0, which is more than perfect for some users.

But, before we tackle how to improve the performance of the HTC One V, you will need to unlock its bootloader for you to flash custom ROMs. For the price of voiding your phone’s warranty and the risk of bricking your phone, unlocking your phone’s bootloader lets you flash custom ROMs and enhance your phone’s performance.

by: Bams SadewoMay 6, 2012

Just when we thought manufacturers have made peace with devs and others who want to have the freedom to create their own smartphone experience with the Android OS on their phones, it is sadly appearing that HTC’s One X on AT&T is exempted from it, as  the bootloader of the phone is locked and HTC’s official unlocking tool reportedly not working.

The Verge got in touch with a representative of the company, and here’s what HTC has to say on the matter:

“HTC is committed to listening to users and delivering customer satisfaction. Since announcing our commitment to unlockable bootloaders, HTC has worked to enable our customers to unlock the bootloader on [...]

Motorola RAZR May Come with Unlocked Bootloader, But Not Verizon’s DROID RAZR

by: Alvin YbañezOctober 24, 2011

HTC Tool Now Unlocks More HTC Phones

by: Dave FerilSeptember 1, 2011

The bootloader unlocking section on the recently launched HTC Dev site has been updated yet again, and 4 variants of the HTC Sensation have been added to the list; namely, the T-Mobile USA, Turkish, Arabic, and Bouygues Telecom versions. Sprint’s HTC EVO 3D has also been marked as unlockable using the HTC-provided unlocking tool.

The official bootloader unlocking process is quite simple. Even [...]
