Bootloader Policy To Be Reviewed Says HTC
There are many annoyed at HTC locked bootloader policy, the newest of which will be the HTC EVO 3D, it may come to pass that HTC will change said bootloader policy as apparently HTC has stated so on both Facebook and Twitter.
According to an article over on Android Central explains for those that are not in the know, open access to bootloaders along with NAND memory allow developers to deliver custom ROMs, and although there are many Android users that stay with virgin smartphones there are also many that mod their device.
So here’s what HTC had to say about bootloading, first from Facebook…” Thanks so much for providing feedback, we hear your concerns. Your satisfaction is a top priority for us and we’re working hard to ensure you have great experiences with our phones. We’re reviewing the issue and our policy around bootloaders and will provide more information soon. Thank you for your interest, support and willingness to share your feedback.” Something so far 1379 Facebook users have liked.
And later followed up on Twitter by tweeting…” Thanks for the feedback, we’re listening! We’re reviewing our bootloader policy,” and will apparently update their Facebook page accordingly.
Now of course you have to realise that this change in policy will not happen overnight, nor will it happen quickly, but at least HTC has agreed to review the situation and hopefully at some point will open up to letting users customise their smartphones as they wish.
