HTC Sensation 4G Up First For Unlocked Bootloader Promises HTC

The good folks at HTC have come through and fulfilled their promise to provide us with info on the unlocked boot loader situation, specifically with the HTC Sensation 4G. So let’s just right to the important details and lay out HTC’s plans for the unlocked bootloader:

  • New devices will continue to ships with a locked boot loader
  • HTC will support unlocking future devices with a web-based tool
  • The HTC Sensation 4G (and non-U.S. version) will be first to to receive an unlocked boot loader using the web-based tool but first comes a small software update to properly use the web-based tool
  • The actual bootloader process takes place via the web-based tool provided you give HTC an email address and acknowledge that you are aware of what you are doing and aware of the risks involved
  • Plug the device into the computer with the Android SDK loaded and retrieve a device identifier token which you will receive via email and then plug into the web-based tool
  • Unlocking begins
  • Unlocked bootloader
  • Happy face :-)

This is a great way for HTC to manage the process and allow for those of us who would want to take advantage of the unlocked bootloader world while still ensuring that the everyday user isn’t going to damage their device. Good news for everyone. No word on the actual date HTC will start this process but as they’ve stated we expect it to happen sometime this month.

    okay i know imma sounds like a COMPLETE phone noob but what does “Unlocking the Bootloader” do for your phone as far as customization wise??? and adding apps?

    • Cubzfan1968

      Custom roms

      • Cubzfan1968

        go to xda developers and start reading, and just remember, nobody is born knowing this stuff, we were all “noobs” once

      • Lazera Thompson

        so in other words rooting and installing custom roms and stuff??? 

    • Curtisjansson

      It unlocks the phone so you can load custom operating systems, and can control the root system of the phone.

      • Lazera Thompson

        so basically installing roms without voiding your warranty??? 

        • http://ashn.myopenid.com/ Ash

           warranty voided when you unlock,
           it’s not just for custom roms, some apps need rooted phone to be able to install too.

    Not that it matters anymore, anyone who is willing to go through the trouble to unlock it through them, is already unlocking it with the ‘Revolutionary’ tool from AlphaRev and unrevoked. The only thing I can think of is if they guarantee warranty through that unlocking method.

    This is a fair solution – the modders get what they want but don’t get to abuse the HTC 1yr warranty.  HTC makes their customers happy.  Seems like a win-win.

    So HTC want us to lose our warranty even for just disabling bloatware?  Better to use the unlock tools available on XDA.

      Hopefully this will cause some people to get interested in learning about the real potential of their phones, and they’ll eventually find their way into the arms of the development community :) 

  • Lazera Thompson

    so when you unlock the bootloader and install a custom rom 
    does it still void your warranty??? 

    • Anonymous

      Yes, if you root your device and install a custom ROM, your warranty is void. There’s a lot of benefits associated with running custom ROM’s such as lack of bloatware, overclocking, enhanced customization and regular software updates, but you should do your homework and know what you’re getting into before you do it. Rooting and installing ROM’s is not for the faint of heart. 

      If you’re really interested, check out XDA Developers and CyanogenMod. (Just do a Google search for those terms) Join the site, talk to some people, post in the forums, and do your research. Once you feel like you’ve got a good handle on things, then, and only then, make the leap. 

      Rooting and ROMing are not dangerous if you know what you’re doing and you follow directions EXACTLY. 
      However, if you do something wrong, there’s potential for turning your device into an unusable brick. So like I said, do your homework :)

          In my opinion media piracy is a victimless crime. I understand the argument on the other side about the impact on publishers, software designers and so on, but it just doesn’t strike me as terribly compelling. Generally speaking, I have no interest in policing the behavior of others, and the means by which someone obtains video games, movies, music and such things simply doesn’t interest me that much.

          I don’t think its a productive use of time to condemn someone on a forum who is simply asking for some help or advice about a subject they are trying to learn about.

          (As an aside, I would feel differently if a person was asking for advice on how to obtain pirated media. Once the act has already taken place though, it does me no good to look askance at someone or put them on the spot for their actions. “Calling them out” isn’t going to change their behavior, and it’s not going to win me any friends. You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar, you know?)

  • Mellow Dubmarine

    Nice. I’m well aware that S-OFF has been out for some time on XDA, but since I’m a noob to the whole process I’d rather go with an easy manufacturer-provided solution. Sounds like the method HTC is creating for us is very easy. I’m not too worried about warranty either because I only plan on eliminating bloatware in order to speed up Sense a bit (which I like but is a bit too slow for me). The screenshots I have seen of custom roms just can’t match the OEM look, although the video I saw of CM7 showed a VERY snappy Sensation.

    • Anonymous

      Have you checked out Virtuous Unity? It’s based on Sense 3.0, I hear good things about it. I haven’t tried it out because I’ve got a G2, and installing it would require me to flash the Desire Z hboot and I haven’t really found a good guide for switching back to the HTC Vision (G2) hboot, and I wouldn’t want to keep the Desire Z hboot (and in so doing lose a couple hundred MB’s of available memory for apps) if I wasn’t sure that I wanted to stick with Unity. 

      If and when I get another phone though, I intend to try it out. I like CM7, but Sense is really pretty looking. 

      • Mellow Dubmarine

        Never heard of it. I know a lot of people have been working on what are essentially Sense 3.0 ROMs that are improved and faster, so I’ll probably look at a few. But if simply removing bloatware reduces the lag that the Sensation has, I’m sticking with the stock ROM.

        • Gac1993

          Using it right now, its not just about the bloatwares being removed, there are also some tweaks made. Very fast rom, xda is surrounded with really good devs. I cant ask for more.

          Still waiting for a solid Sense-less ROM to come out.  Anyone have any that I haven’t seen on XDA?  I haven’t tried the Revolution one since it seems like it just takes a Sense ROM and attempts to strip the Sense from it.  Not sure if that’s as good as one built straight from the ASOP…

          Well, I don’t use facebook, and I have no idea what a facebook wall is, but I do know that companies that would like to stay in business generally consider accommodating their customers to be a wise course of action. Particularly when those customers are technically savvy, and thus probably have a great deal of influence over the purchasing decisions of their friends and family, as far as electronics are concerned. 

          Sounds pretty reasonable to me.

          Truthfully, I think HTC looked at it less as a “responding to a nominal number of customers’ desires” and more as “great press for unlocking something on our cool devices”.  The majority of people (like the first post) are not going to know WTH unlocking the bootloader does but damn it sounds like HTC is doing the right thing.

          Yay HTC.

          Agreed. Most people have no idea what the bootloader is and could care less if its locked or unlocked.

          It’s probably just a PR move, but it’s a good PR move, and even if HTC is doing the right thing for the wrong reasons, its still the right thing, and I’m glad they decided to be reasonable about it. (And in doing so pave the way for the other manufacturers to make similar decisions about future devices.)

          Anything that encourages open development is positive, I think at least :)

          (But of course, having said all that, we both know that all the people who really care about ROM’s and bootloaders have already made use of the resources available through the developer community to achieve their desired level of customization, and if they hadn’t gotten around to it yet, they would have eventually.)

          But either ways, it’s good for the customers, it’s good for Android development, and I think that’s what we should all take away from this.

          I never said rooting was a difficult process. It is however a process that demands some level of technical sophistication. It’s certainly not for the average user. (And personally, I’d stay away from any one-click root methods since they seem to result in a lot of bricks.)

          Either ways though, it would appear that instead of being a retard, you’re just a hypocrite. Congratulations.

      ‘Its’.  Get it right.

      It’s not forced.  It’s up to you to do it.  So what’s the big deal?

        Actually the possessive form of “it” is just its… The apostrophe after an “s” is only when the noun is plural…

      It sounds like this is just a process to unlock the bootloader.

        Are they ever going to release a software update that fixes like the battery life, sudden shutdowns, loss of connection, etc?

    I want to unlock my bootloader. But I have a few questions involving unlocking it:

    1) Is there anyway I can unlock with out signing my warranty away (a way around it)?

    2) When and if I unlock it, which would be the best custom ROM to run? e.g. overclocked processor at like 1.7 Ghz etc.

    3) Lastly, is there anyway to unroot if I ever had to use warranty or anything of that sort?
