HTC Dumlock Makes Its Way to Rezound
A few days ago, we brought you coverage of the HTC Dumlock method for the HTC EVO 3D and HTC Sensation. Now this method of flashing to the boot partition through recovery has made it’s way to the HTC Rezound.
XDA Recognized Developer Dees_Troy has released the method for the Rezound, and it works almost identically as the versions on the HTC Sensation and the EVO 3D. According to the developer:
Put simply, we make backups of recovery and boot, then we flash the backup of recovery to boot. When you reboot normally, you’ll be in your recovery, but since your recovery is flashed to boot, you can make changes to boot.
For those who aren’t familiar, the Dumlock is applied so users can flash full ROMs—including the boot partition, which was previously locked down unless users flashed using fastboot. Having to flash things over fastboot to get to the boot partition is an unfortunate side effect of the official htcdev unlock method.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
