HTC made an update on its Facebook page thread discussion about unlocked bootloaders, in which they promise a new software update this month which will support unlocking for only a few selective phones , the HTC Sensation, followed soon by the HTC Sensation 4G from T-Mobile and the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint. In order to achieve this, HTC will release a web-based tool to help enthusiastics and developers in the process of unlocking their HTC phones.
“So how will this work? The Web tool, which will launch this month, requires that you register an account with a valid e-mail address and accept legal disclaimers that unlocking may void all or parts of your warranty. Then plug in your phone to a computer with the Android SDK loaded to retrieve a device identifier token, which you can then enter into the Web tool to receive a unique unlock key via e-mail. Finally, apply the key to your device and unlocking will be initiated on your phone”.
