HTC had been kind enough to its users when it announced the release of its bootloader unlock tool. The tool, as HTC later announced, unlocked some 45 HTC devices. However, the bad news that HTC has now sugar-coated and stated is that the bootloader unlock tool won’t be able to unlock any of HTC One X devices.


Bootloader Unlock tool works on 45 HTC devices:
The bootloader unlock tool that HTC released is a sweet candy for HTC users. That is because the tool essentially enables the users to load custom ROMs into their devices. However, one drawback of unlocking the device using the bootloader is that the warranty of that device will become void. A lot of users would happily forgo of the warranty to unlock their devices and load custom ROMs in them.

Most Android users are hooked up the Android platform precisely because of the reason that a number of custom ROMs of the platform are available. So when HTC provided them with this choice, they were naturally overjoyed.

No unlock for HTC One X:
But sadly enough, this joy is not to be shared by such HTC users who are tooling HTC’s One X smartphone. HTC One X is one of the best smartphones that the company has released to this date. However, according to HTC, the bootloader unlock tool won’t be unlocking the One X devices. MoDaCo followed up with HTC on this and the company responded by issuing the statement:

“HTC is committed to listening to users and delivering customer satisfaction. Since announcing our commitment to unlockable bootloaders, HTC has worked to enable our customers to unlock the bootloader on more than 45 devices over the past six months. In some cases, however, restrictions prevent certain devices from participating in our bootloader unlocking program. Rest assured, HTC is committed to assisting developers in unlocking bootloaders for HTC devices and we’ll continue to unlock additional devices in the future.”

A theory that has been offered is that HTC is not allowing the users to unlock the One X device because AT&T is carrying the device and has stopped HTC from offering the unlock support from it. Carriers have been involved in attempting such moves and it seems probable that AT&T has got something to do with this.
