HTC promised it’d be here this month and they delivered. After launching the new HTCDev.com that included a placeholder for a future bootloader unlocking tool, they’ve gone and made the process available for the first device – the HTC Sensation. While we here at Phandroid.com can’t test it, HTC provides the process in easy-to-follow instructions. If you’ve gone anywhere near XDA then this should feel at home for you. Remember, by accepting to unlock your bootloader you may be subject to a voided warranty if it’s ever broken. With that said, get started at HTCDev.com. Sensation 4G (T-Mobile USA) and HTC EVO 3D (Sprint) users will have a little while longer to wait (though other unofficial methods do exist). [Thanks Barry!]
