Six more HTC phones get unlocked bootloaders thanks to HTC Dev


Less than two weeks after unlocking bootloaders for five of their Android powered phones, the HTC Dev team has added bootloader unlock support for six more phones. The latest handsets to gain official bootloader unlock support include the HTC ChaCha, Status, Incredible, Desire Z, Aria and T-Mobile G2. This latest wave from the HTC Dev team brings the total count of unlockable phones to 28. If HTC Dev can keep up this pace, they may be able to unlock all HTC’s Android phones within the next few months.

Don’t forget that using HTC’s official unlock tool carries the same (if not more) risks as rooting and unlocking your phone with tools created by the Android development community. Just make sure you follow the instructions and ask other people for help if you’re not exactly sure what you’re doing.

We know a few of you have used the official HTC Dev bootloader unlocker. Would you recommend going with HTC’s tool, or do you think tools from the development community are just as good and reliable?
