HTC Rezound Auto Unlocker Makes Unlocking Faster and Easier
While it is very convenient to be able to unlock any HTC device on the HTCdev.com website, it is still quite a difficult task for some who either just can’t get it to work right or aren’t as Android savvy as they’d like to be. It is for these people that most developers will create an auto-unlock or auto-root tool. So even those who don’t have the time to learn Android can share in the rooted magic.
XDA Forum Member fenguepay has done just this with an auto unlocker tool for the HTC Rezound. The tool, once run, will automatically unlock the bootloader, giving users the ability to flash ROMs, flash tweaks, and any number of other things. The tool itself is still in beta mode, so don’t be surprised if there are a few bugs. As fenguepay says:
It is only v1.x so it is sure to have some errors.
If you find any, post them here If i don’t respond to them then PM me.
I will try to find and fix as fast as possible.
So do know that if you run into an error and report it, fenguepay is on it and will try to get it fixed. Currently, the bugs for the application aren’t extensive, and recent versions are much more stable and streamlined than the earlier versions. So even as a beta, users can be confident that this won’t damage their phone permanently.

The wearable hasn't even shipped yet, but has already won multiple awards and has been featured on numerous fashion magazine covers. Do you think the Apple Watch will be a huge success? Let us know your thoughts.
The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
