The HTC DROID DNA is the first smartphone to be available in the United States to feature a 5-inch 1080p HD display. The handset is the big red’s flagship handset for the holiday season. However, like all other handsets released on Verizon’s network in recent times, the DROID DNA also has a locked down bootloader.
HTC has a web-based bootloader unlocking system in place, but that does not support the DROID DNA and other recent DROID branded handsets from the Taiwanese maker.
Thankfully, some of the talented Android developers have managed to find a way to unlock the DROID DNA using HTC’s own bootloader unlocking tool. The ‘softmod’ changes the carrier information ont he DROID DNA allowing it to be unlocked easily.
So, if you own a DROID DNA and are interested in unlocking it, head over to this post on Android Police for a step-by-step guide. Keep in mind that unlocking the bootloader will void the warranty of your brand new DNA so decide if the risk is worth it or not, and proceed with caution.
