A couple of days ago, HTC revealed their bootloader unlock portal and started with 1 of the 3 (so far) promised devices - the European Sensation. The EVO 3D  and the T-Mobile Sensation 4G remained MIA for the time being.

Notice how the Sensation was unlocked shortly after receiving an Android 2.3.4 OTA, which apparently gave it its "unlockability." Now remember what happened this morning? Yup - the EVO 3D also got the 2.3.4 update and, you guessed it - it's now unlockable at HTCDev.com.

So, if it's the bootloader unlock you're after, hop on over to HTC's bootloader unlock page to get in on the unlock-y goodness, but remember - it will likely void your software warranty, so proceed at your own risk (as always).

P.S. The Sensation 4G is receiving its own OTA as we speak - who wants to make a little wager that it'll be unlockable within a few days now?

    Just so you know, once you unlock your bootloader through this process, you will NOT BE ABLE TO ACHIEVE ROOT, nor FLASH CUSTOM RECOVERIES!!!! Just so you know

    Hmmmm well i just unlocked my bootloader through HTC and rooted my phone so I know it can be done

    Yes it can be done my coworker has done it the same day as the update. Myself I choose to wait till ICE CREAM SANDWICH UPDATE because I feel that will allow the device and it's dualcore processor to better be used and optimized and I would like to see what that feels like. I might root either the same day as ice cream or shortly there after. Meanwhile I am very happy with my device and this past update the device is so much more faster performance wise. This is the best device on the market period..
