The HTC Dev is starting 2012 off with a bang by adding support to unlock the bootloaders for five more HTC devices. If you own the HTC Wildfire S, Wildfire, Salsa, Merge or Desire you will now be able to unlock your handset using HTC’s official bootloader unlock tool directly from the HTC Dev website. HTC’s website indicates that there are currently 22 different HTC devices which can be unlocked, but that number should continue to grow as the HTC Dev team adds older phones to the list.
We’d like to remind you 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 know all the potential risks before you embark on your bootloader unlocking adventure.
Have any of you used HTC’s official bootloader unlocking tool on our phone?
