AT&T HTC One bootloader unlocked by HTCdev site

The brand new flagship HTC One smartphone surely is an impressive handset, but we know many of you have been waiting and wondering if the bootloader would be unlocked, or at least unlockable using the HTCdev site. While HTC has been better lately about unlocking many devices bootloaders, they have a dev edition up for sale leading many to believe the One would be locked down.

AT&T’s HTC One X bootloader locked for now

For the past few months HTC has been playing it pretty mod-friendly with HTCDev, their portal for all things developer and the home of HTC's bootloader unlock tool. But those few who have access to AT&T's LTE version of the One X have found that using the previously posted bootloader unlock simply won't work - the unlock process returns a failure, and says that the American model isn't allowed. Without an unlocked bootloader, custom ROMs will be difficult, and custom kernels will be almost impossible.

Reminder: Unlock HTC One S and X bootloaders at HTCDev

So T-Mobile finally released their new HTC One S and you're loving it right? Then AT&T's One X will arrive in a few days and the next step for any die hard Android fan would be to unlock the bootloader, root the phone and get ready for some awesome developer ROM's to arrive. Just like most of HTC's current phones you can easily and safely unlock the bootloader with HTC's developer site.

Today it appears they've updated just that as the Thunderbolt and Incredible 2 have now been added to HTCDev.com and are now truly free.
