Unlock Virtually Any HTC Bootloader Without Voiding Warranty
Posted April 22, 2012 at 10:00 am by Former Writer
A few days ago, we brought you news of an unlock method that unlocked the HTC Wildfire S bootloader without voiding the warranty. The reason why that’s so cool is because when users use HTCDev to unlock their bootloaders, it actually voids your warranty. As it turns out, the Wildfire S unlock method may be compatible with any HTC device. Now other users have had success testing XDA Senior Member simonsimons34‘s warranty-intact root method on their own HTC devices.
The process is identical as it was for the Wildfire S, but it can now be tested by anyone with an HTC phone and locked bootloader. As everyone knows, HTCDev’s method won’t give you full S-Off—and neither will this one. However, this is good for those who don’t yet need universal S-Off. Says simonsimons34:
I have been able to create a method of unlocking ANY unlockable hboot, on any device (as far as i can tell)
The method works on S-on, stock recovery devices. As of right now im linking to a specific device, however, if you only use the unlock youll be fine. I need testers from other HTC devices.
So while it’s not quite confirmed on all devices just yet, anyone who wants to test can feel free to do so, and see exactly how many phones this supposedly universal mod actually supports.
If you’re looking to test it out or just want to check it out, hit up the original thread for updates, testing results and download links.
