HTCdev unlocks bootloader for the HTC Dream – the world’s first Android phone

2 years ago 11

The HTCdev team has been working extremely hard over the past few months. We’ve seen them unlock countless bootloaders for older HTC phones and release new APIs which give developers the ability to tie in the applications into many of the features available within Open Sense. But today, the HTCdev team has outdone themselves by adding the HTC Dream (T-Mobile G1) to the list of devices which can be unlocked with HTC’s bootloader unlock tool.

You would be hard pressed to find anyone who still uses the HTC Dream, but HTCdev is most likely viewing this as a symbolic accomplishment to show the development community how committed they are to unlocking bootloaders and helping developers with all the tools they need to create great applications for HTC devices. Samsung, Sony, and Motorola have done a decent job of embracing developers, but we can probably all agree that HTCdev is outshining the competition.

Do any of you still own an unrooted G1? Do you still use it as your daily driver?
