What is the point of this?
The idea of this is to convince htc to unlock the bootloaders on more of their devices (only 3 devices support it) and to disable the NAND protection to enable users to flash custom kernels – more like the sony tool (found at http://unlockbootloader.sonyericsson.com/)
Why should I support this?
Unlocking the bootloader and disabling the NAND protection will allow users to keep their phones up to date using custom roms such as CM7. Take the htc wildfire for example. In december 2010, HTC released a 2.2 update for the wildfire. However, hidden in this update was a new bootloader which could not (until alpharev x was relased about 6 months later) be modified. It is unlikely that HTC will release another update for this phone, meaning that users would have been stuck on this rom. The reason? So HTC can sell new phones. However what this is doing is putting users off buying HTC’s devices since rival companies have announced that the users can easily unlock the bootloaders on their devices.
