The HTC EVO Design 4G is the latest HTC phone to get an official bootloader unlock via HTCDev.com. If you were waiting for HTC’s method and want to apply it, this process is usually so simple that people who haven’t rooted a device before will be able to get through it easily. Anything you do with this unlock is your own responsibility, though, so head over to HTCDev.com and be aware of the risk. Happy unlocking! [via Android Police]
