HTC Keeps Promise, T-Mobile Sensation 4G Bootloader Now Unlockable

It may seem a bit late, but HTC has kept their word, and the T-Mobile Sensation 4G’s bootloader can now be unlocked. HTC first promised the update back in July, after announcing they would no longer be locking bootloaders. We discovered that it would be at least mid-August before HTC devices in the States got the update, which infuriated quite a few Sensation 4G and Evo 3D owners. At long last, Sensation 4G users can get their bootloaders unlocked through HTCDev.com.

Before you jump into unlocking your Sensation, we should mention that the process isn’t for the novice Android user. It requires ADB knowledge, which isn’t exactly for the faint of heart. But if you’re feeling brave, you can head on over to the bootloader unlocking page and give it a shot for yourself.

Has anyone unlocked their bootloader yet? How difficult was it? Leave a comment below!

    I got mine S-off by other means. I honestly don’t recommend going through their way because they will know you voided warranty and have the paper trail for it. So if you screwed up the device. HTC will know and there’s nothing you can do about it.

    I unlocked the Tmobile HTC Sensation and removed batter then booted using volume down and power button to find thats says unlocked but S-ON still there… How do you change to S-OFF to allow other roms to be installed?
