HTC Sensation’s bootloader unofficially unlocked

It’s been nearly two months since HTC first pledged to keep bootloaders unlocked, allowing for the installation of custom ROMs on their handsets. We knew the process wasn’t going to be an easy one, and unfortunately, little to no progress has been shown to the general public. A vague timeline was given at one point for the HTC Sensation, but the hacking and modding community wasn’t ready to just sit down and wait. Hacking team AlphaRevX has successfully designed full unlock, permanent root and s-off (unlocked bootloader) solutions for the Sensation.

The team is working to bring this to the public as soon as possible, along with a solution for the HTC EVO 3D, but no ETA has been given at this time. Going by the speed of how these things have worked in the past, don’t be surprised if it doesn’t take long at all. For the most accurate information regarding the progress of the unlock, always refer back to the origin of this information (a thread on the XDA Developers forums).

If you’re using a Sensation, or Evo 3D for that matter, and waiting for AlphaRevX’s complete s-off, which ROM do you hope to flash first? CyanogenMod 7? MIUI? Just a little less bloated Sense 3.0 ROM? Let us know in the comments below.
