Tutorial for Mac Users Looking to Unlock with HTCdev

Most of the development that occurs on the forums requires users to run either Windows or Linux. As such, most guides are for those operating systems as well. Thus Mac users are in a state of limbo, as most users have to wait for someone with a Mac to develop or write tutorials specifically for Macs, including the latest troubleshooting.

However, if you have a Mac and you’re looking to unlock the bootloader for your HTC device, you now have a place and a method to help you out and troubleshoot. XDA Senior Member xjedi wrote out a Mac-friendly tutorial for unlocking the HTC Rezound bootloader using HTC Dev. In his words:

I had trouble unlocking the bootloader on my iMac but got it to work.

Just posting this to help out my fellow Mac Heads who’ve turned from the evil iPhone.

The tutorial is much like the one you’d find on HTC Dev, but adds the much needed support for common errors and troubleshooting that Mac users don’t normally get including proper installation of the Android SDK and there being a whole thread of discussion for those having issues. While originally written for the HTC Rezound, this should work for all devices compatible with the HTCdev unlock method. Now, Mac users can have the same support as PC and Linux users already enjoy.

For the tutorial, discussion and troubleshooting, head on over to the tutorial thread. There you’ll find all the help you’ll need with Mac-based device unlocking.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
