Well, the feedback on the HTC EVO 3D locked bootloader was negative, so HTC decided to review the policy on bootloaders. The company claims that the customer’s satisfaction is the top priority and they’re working on this aspect, also promising more information soon.
This is the first time that HTC has mentioned it thinks about a policy change. What this could mean is that we’ll get open access to bootloaders and NAND memory, that are vital for implementing custom ROMs. Of course, this move could just be one meant to make peace with angry fans, but HTC must realize the advantage of using an open platform.
Sony Ericsson already allows us to mod their devices, while Motorola is still trying to get comfortable with the idea, so HTC Should join the gang.
