HTC: Unlocked Bootloaders for EVO 3D, Sensation Expected by September
HTC has taken to Facebook to announce that they have taken one step closer to unlocking the bootloaders for their new Sensation 4G (T-Mobile) and EVO 3D (Sprint). According to the handset maker, they are currently in the process of testing the system out, hoping to have it ready for September.
We’re thrilled to announce today that software updates to support bootloader unlocking will begin rolling out in August for the global HTC Sensation, followed by the HTC Sensation 4G on T-Mobile USA and the HTC EVO 3D on Sprint. We’re in the testing phase for the unlocking capability now, and we expect it to be fully operational by early September for devices that have received the software updates. We’ll continue rolling out the unlocking capability over time to other devices as part of maintenance releases and new shipments.
The issue of bootloaders may not matter to many Android users, but it’s really important to those that care. We’ll be really happy once HTC gets out in front of the situation and starts to show other device makers how much good will is behind such a move. It certainly won’t hurt their growth!
Thanks for the heads up, zack!
