The HTC Vivid comes with it’s bootloader locked and no method to unlock it using HTC’s htcdev.com website.
This is contrary to public statements by the HTC CEO that all future bootloaders would be unlocked.
The HTC Raider, which is identical to the Vivid but sold outside of the USA has an unlocked bootloader, as does the Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket on AT&T.
HTC has implied that it is AT&T that is not allowing the Vivid bootloader to be unlocked, but that seems rediculous based on the Skyrocket’s status.
We ask that HTC Immediately provide an unlock for the Vivid’s bootloader and cease all future locking of bootloaders in compliance with their stated position.
