    Now that HTC has made another statement (found here), we are hoping Motorola sticks to their word. While finding out earlier today that sbf_flash doesn't work but "fastboot" does, except "oem unlock" on the Droid 3, it shows they may have something up their sleeves. What does this mean for us since HTC should be unlocking phones soon? More phones for developers, thats right, expect some awesome stuff to happen soon. Stay tuned and register, enjoy your stay here at RootzWiki.

    Update on Bootloaders


    by HTC on Tuesday, May 24, 2011 at 7:50pm

    Thanks so much for providing feedback, we hear your concerns. Your satisfaction is a top priority for us and we're working hard to ensure you have great experiences with our phones. We're reviewing the issue and our policy around bootloaders and will provide more information soon. Thank you for your interest, support and willingness to share your feedback.

    **UPDATE**

    We’ve listened. Check out the statement from our CEO, Peter Chou on HTC bootloaders. Click the link for more info. "There has been... | Facebook

    **UPDATE 7/10**

    We wanted to provide an update on HTC’s progress with bringing bootloader unlocking to our newest phones. We know how excited some of you are for this capability, and we’ve put significant resources behind making this change as soon as possible. While we wish we could flip a simple switch and unlock all bootloaders across our device portfolio, this is actually a complex challenge that requires a new software build and extensive testing to deliver the best possible customer experience.

    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.

    HTC continues its commitment to unlocking bootloaders and supporting the developer community. Because of the importance of this community to us, please expect an update on this about every few weeks as we make progress toward launch. Thank you for your patience and continued support!
