HTC Bootloader Unlocking Issues Fixed

Now THAT’s Justice–HTC Wins Patent Wars in London!

judge_hammer

In these modern times, wars seemingly rage on a different scale and on different media. If you are into technology, gadgets, and all the wonderful things that we do, and unless you have been living under a rock for the last couple of years, you are likely aware that Apple has positioned themselves as an unofficial “enemy” of Android and really anything that is not branded “Apple”. The battlefields (legal ones) are scattered throughout the world, and the results of the clashes are somewhat random, meaning that outcomes in different parts of the world can widely vary.

HTCLinkify: What It Is and Why Devs Aren’t Removing It

HTC

Unless you’ve been living under a rock recently, you’ve undoubtedly heard about Apple’s influence over HTC EVO 4G LTE and One X availability in the US. What most people didn’t hear about, though, is how HTC got around it. For those who are unfamiliar with the case, HTC broke a patent owned by Apple and thus Apple was able to file an exclusion, preventing the HTC devices from being sold Stateside.
