HTC "diligently working" on unlocking EVO 3D bootloader


Just as they did in protest of the HTC EVO 3D being locked down, many unhappy customers are once again heading to Facebook to write on the company's wall, this time threatening to return their new phones if the bootloader isn't unlocked within the 30-day return period.

HTC confirmed that it would no longer be locking bootloaders before the EVO 3D's release, so the fact that the phone still ships with an S-ON badge is obviously upsetting to buyers who feel that they've been lied to.

The good news is that HTC is still listening to its customers. "We are diligently working to ensure that we do this right," the company posted in reponse to a Facebook comment today. "When everything is finalized, we will make an announcement on Facebook. Thanks for your patience."

How much longer HTC will need to make sure unlocking the bootloaders is done "right" is unknown, but many new EVO 3D owners are already counting down from 30.
