Last night, HTC declared last night on their Facebook page in the words of its own CEO, Peter Chou, that they will no longer lock bootloaders for their upcoming Android devices. Since then, many HTC fans have been wondering if the HTC EVO 3D or the Sensation 4G will each have unlocked bootloaders as their release dates are approaching.
As far as the EVO 3D is concerned, XDA Forums user “jhuff83” has gone straight to the source and emailed, Peter Chou, asking him if the 3D-capable HTC handset will indeed have an unlocked bootloader.
Here is the initial letter:
This is good news to all of you who are in the market for the HTC EVO 3D as it will definitely have an unlocked bootloader but the question is: will it ship with it or receive an update at a later date. We hope to hear back from HTC about the HTC Sensation bootloader situation and if anyone does before we do, do not hesitate to share!
