New HTC Droid DNA Exploit Helps Unlock a Different Way
Posted December 3, 2012 at 11:00 pm by Former Writer
In case you haven’t heard, the HTC Droid DNA was unlocked despite Verizon’s best efforts. The method involved re-writing the CID to fool HTCDev into thinking it was a different phone. While effective, the developers involved thought they could do better. And so they did. Now there is a new way to get the HTC Droid DNA unlocked.
XDA Elite Recognized Developer jcase, who released the first exploit, also created the second. This one is different in a variety of ways, although the execution is very similar. Instead of writing a new CID for the device, jcase’s newest method rewrites the whole partition.
It’s just as involved as the last one, and involves many of the same processes. For instance, users who want to use this exploit will have to work out of two command prompt windows, instead of just one. It is also worth noting that this process still doesn’t actually unlock the HTC Droid DNA. It simply prepares it so that it can be unlocked through conventional channels like HTCDev. However, when it comes to unlocking a device, the more ways, the better.
