Finally HTC offering web Bootloader unlock
XDA member kaintfm let us know some great news for all HTC lovers with newer devices out there. According to HTC´s Facebook page, the Bootloader Unlock tool will be web-based, require a valid email address, a device-specific token, and it will require your consent to void parts of the warranty. After all is said and done, you will be given a code which will unlock the phone’s bootloader permanently.
The first unlocker will be for the global HTC Sensation, followed by the HTC Sensation on T-Mobile, 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. Keep in mind that there is still no set date for the official release, so keep an eye out for more.
