According to information posted on the GDGT, HTC plans to release the bootloader for its phones, thus ending the traditional practice that prevented the community of users and developers from being able to ?do what they want? with their devices.
?We have received a lot of feedback from our customers who prefer to have an unlocked bootloader on their HTC phones. I want you to know that we are listening and confirm that we will no longer crash the bootloader of our devices. Thank you for your passion, support and patience, ?said Peter Chou, CEO of HTC.
It is not yet known exactly when HTC plans to start the new practice and whether the old models will also be able to take advantage of the decision. However, even with the remaining debts, the extremely positive news for everyone who likes the Android platform.
We now hope that competitors will also see the benefits of this strategy.
