HTC is continuing to make progress with unlocking the bootloader on their range of Android devices, starting with the HTC Sensation (EU customers only, at the moment). The process is simple enough, and only requires a few short steps to free your handset from its shackles.
With Google taking over Motorola, Android device manufacturers will have to step up their game and become more open, or users will choose devices without built-in limitations. HTC is expected to roll out support for additional devices, including the Evo 3D, Sensation 4G (T-Mo), and others over the next few months.
HTC is committed to listening to users and delivering customer satisfaction. We have heard your voice and starting now, we will allow our bootloader to be unlocked for 2011 models going forward. We plan on releasing the updates that will allow you to unlock your bootloader in the coming months, please keep an eye on this website for more details on which devices will be adding this feature. We are extremely pleased to see the energy and enthusiasm from our fans and loyal customers, and we are excited to see what you are capable of. HTC eagerly anticipates your innovations.
