Good and EVO

Official bootloader unlock tool now available for international HTC EVO 3Ds

Evo3d-rogers-eu-unlock Good news for our neighbors up north and our friends across the pond: HTC's official bootloader unlocking tool is now available for the Canadian HTC EVO 3D, currently sold through Rogers, as well as the unbranded European EVO 3D, which went on sale unsubsidized last month.

Of course, the official method has seen its fair share of criticism: Some users are afraid that HTC will deny future warranty claims based on their knowledge of certain device being rooted through this tool. Others are upset because this method seems to keep certain parts of the phone off limits, including the ability to flash new radios or kernels.

So while some are applauding HTC at their efforts to reach out to the developer community, others see this as not going far enough. In any case, though, if you own a Canadian or European EVO 3D and have been lurking around on G&E, waiting for your moment to come, this is it.
