HTC bootloader will no longer be lock – Great News to rom freaks

Posted on May 27, 2011


Great news for HTC fans. HTC’s CEO Peter Chou has just about few hours ago posted this on HTC Facebook :

“There has been overwhelmingly customer feedback that people want access to open bootloaders on HTC phones. I want you to know that we’ve listened. Today, I’m confirming we will no longer be locking the bootloaders on our devices. Thanks for your passion, support and patience,” Peter Chou, CEO of HTC

So all present users of HTC newer devices – Incredible s, Desire S and the upcoming HTC Sensation can now look forward to a greater adventure tweaking their smartphones beyond what HTC wishes. HTC has listened to their users and responded magnificently. Though majority of users might not tinker with the HTC’s firmware or kernels, this is indeed ” god send” blessing to rom aficionados.

Within minutes, the HTC facebook page was swamped with many user’s happy feedbacks over this decision.
