Bootloaders: More than you ever wanted to know

Unlocked Bootloader

We’re all pleased as punch that HTC has decided to shake things up a bit and stop locking the bootloader on its Android devices.  Cheers to the manufacturer for listening to the vocal minority, and for realizing the value that this will bring to its brand.  We’ll get the full details, as well as answers to questions like when this policy goes into effect, as soon as we can.  In the meantime, there’s a lot of questions about exactly what all this bootloader noise means. 

We’re going to try to answer those questions, in as non-geeky a way as possible.  Hit the break, and have a read.
