HTC Thunderbolt, Incredible 2 Get Unlocked Bootloaders
“All HTC Android devices launched after September 2011 are unlockable“, said HTC in an official statement, adding all the phones in the above-mentioned category to the list on HTCdev.com.
Thankfully, HTC’s changes to the site also include the addition of two phones released prior to September 2011: the HTC Thunderbolt and the Incredible 2. If the hacks and tweaks you wanted to apply were stopped by the locked bootloader, you can now unlock your phones, given you understand that this voids your warranty. As far as Verizon is concerned, HTC either found a way around the carrier’s policy regarding unlocked bootloaders or Verizon has changed its mind. Regardless, what matters is that the two are now listed.
