HTC’s Web-Based Bootloader Unlock Tool Goes Live

HTC Sensation owners in Europe, here is some good news for you. The promised web-based bootloader unlocking tool from HTC has just gone live.

At the moment, the web-based tool only supports the European version of Sensation running on software version 1.45.401.2 or greater. The 1.45 numbered software update was recently released by HTC in Europe, and bumps up the Android OS version to 2.3.4, along with squashing some bugs.

The bootloader unlock page mentions only 3 handsets from HTC, the EVO 3D, the Sensation 4G and the European version of the Sensation, whose bootloader can be unlocked. Of all the three handsets, the European version of Sensation is only one, which users can unlock the bootloader on right away.  Users will be able to unlock the bootloader on the other two handsets, post a software update, which should be rolled out sooner than later.

Users who are interested in unlocking the boot loader on their handset, should keep in mind that by doing so, they will void the warranty of their handset. Also, while HTC allows users to unlock the bootloader on their handset, it does not provide a way to lock it back.

Interested Sensation (EU) owners, should head over to HTC’s Developer website for more information.
