HTC Sensation Update Available Soon To Unlock Bootloader

Some of you HTC followers may remember recently a small situation where HTC were talking about locking down their handsets, HTC listen to their customers and decided to go against their policy to the delight of everyone as these things can now really show their true potential. This is obviously one of the reasons that HTC is doing so well in the UK Sales chart with 5 out of the top 10 devices.

Now we have heard that the previously locked bootloader of the HTC Sensation may be unlocked with an update coming soon. We learned of this through an article over on Slashgear by their author Shane McGlaun who has started to draw a comparison between Samsung and HTC as Sammy has just announced that they are moving towards unlocked bootloaders.

So what’s all the fuss about some of you may be wondering? Well having access to the bootloader means that you can use custom ROMs and tinker with your device a little and in some ways make it better for your needs.

Some people with expertise in the area of unlocking phones, using custom ROMs and bootloaders are those clever clogs over at the XDA forums where some of them have been in communication with HTC about the situation which is where all this speculation started from.

What do you think will happen? Will HTC unlock the bootloader for the HTC Sensation? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
