Virtually: Unlock Bootloader Of Any HTC Android Phone Without Voiding Warranty
There have been several methods available on how you can perform bootloader unlocking and already existed ways to do this has successfully unlocked the HTC Wildfire bootloader without voiding warranty though. Today, we brought something that you have been waiting and who like modding their devices. Few days ago we have published a post on rooting method that allowed boatloads of any Samsung devices running Gingerbread to be rooted using the similar method.
Now those who are running almost any HTC Android-based devices can virtually unlock their bootloader without jeopardizing that all-important warranty. Unlocking the bootloader by going the HTC Dev route voids your warranty, but luckily for those interested, the method released a few days ago for the HTC Wildfire S seems to be compatible with any HTC device.
This unique solution created by simonsimons34 – a reliable member of XDA Developers forums who have been testing the method and seems now anyone with an HTC device can unlock their bootloader without surrendering their warranty.
While with HTC Devs’ way, this method doesn’t offer full S-OFF – but does serve as a good solution for those who won’t require Universal S-OFF. However, this method hasn’t been confirmed yet as working on all the HTC devices running Android, which probably needs testers, and if you’re one of anybody willing to try it out will be helping the reason move onwars and upwards.
Developer simonsimons34 said of the method:
I have been able to create a method of unlocking ANY unlockable hboot, on any device (as far as I can tell). The method works on S-on, stock recovery devices.
This is the reason why you might want to unlock the bootloader of your Android device. Mainly, you need to unlock the bootloader to gain lower-level access for tasks such as mounting the system partition in read/write mode for installing programs. It differs from the process of rooting in that it removes the restrictions needed to gain that lower-level access, whereas rooting allows you to run other, unrestricted programs under the “root” hood of Android.
If you are a starter unlocking your bootloader, and thinking you misht been put off somewhat by the cries of void warranty, then this method of solution without any doubt be the genuine way to opt to go ahead.
