    HTC hasn't locked any of their phones bootloaders as far as I know so I dont think it'd be crazy to assume it won't either. of course we'll just have to wait and see ;)

    They've been locking bootloaders for awhile now.

    *EDIT*

    They haven't used encryption in their bootloaders in the past, which made them easier to break.

    It's hard to say, without getting our hands on a production phone; to know the condition of the bootloader. I cross my fingers it's not encrypted.

    Locked and signed, yes. Encrypted, no.
