May 27, 2011 10:58 AM –
In welcome news for Android owners, HTC announced on it’s Facebook page that it will no longer lock it’s bootloaders on Android phones, meaning, from here on out, they’ll be a lot easier to root.
“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,” said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC in the post on the company’s wall.
Great news for those developers looking to continue working with all the upcoming HTC devices that will be available this year. Now if we could only get Google on the same horse and stop blocking rooted phones from their video services.
