Finally! A way to make the voided warranty and bootloader unlocking official. This way HTC can allow their phones to be unlocked without opening themselves up to the hordes of people bringing in their bricked phones for warranty work.
Via its Facebook page
today, HTC announced some more details about how it will unlock the
bootloaders of devices that are currently selling with them locked. The
tool will be web-based, require a valid email address, a device-specific
token, require consent to void parts of the warranty, but then give a
code which will unlock the phone's bootloader permanently. HTC stated
back in July that a bootloader unlocking process was coming soon, and
has now given some specifics on the timeline and which devices will see
The first unlocks will start with the global HTC Sensation, followed by the HTC Sensation on T-Mobile which we reviewed
recently, and finally the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint. A software update will
take place before the web unlock tool goes live to prepare the devices
for the unlocking process.
Phones will continue selling with their bootloaders locked for the
indefinite future because of security and warranty concerns.
