HTC’s promise to release unlocked bootloaders (for easy installation of custom software) is going to be delivered upon in August. The company says the first wave will hit the Sensation, with the Sensation 4G and Evo 3D up next. [Engadget]
HTC took to their Facebook page to say they’re looking into allowing bootloading (the installation of custom ROMs) on its EVO 3D, Sensation, Incredible S and Thunderbolt phones. With Android meant to be “open source”, their decision has angered many.
