HTC is continuously adding phones and tablets to its official bootloader unlock page, and a couple of new devices have made their way into the now-unlockable arena. The EVO View 4G is one such device, as it now joins its Wi-Fi only brother, the Flyer, in the world of open bootloaders. Also joining the mix is the T-Mobile myTouch 4G Slide, the first device from the myTouch family to make its way onto the portal.

As always, the unlock process is a simple one, but keep in mind that, while it is an official method, it will still void your warranty. For more information, or to get started with the process, head over to HTVdev.com and give it a go.

Good luck!

    Just hope the Desire S makes the list, as it has received the required HBOOT to do so.

    Awesome news. I have the Slide, which I already rooted the old way. But it's great to see more devices get support for official bootloader unlocking.

      I think the MyTouch 4G Slide is one of the best phones out there for me. I love that it's consistently one of the top rated Android camera's. I love the D-Pad and the slide out keyboard (seems to be going out of style) and that it's dual core and has a front-facing camera. Has all the specs/things I need and nothing I don't. It's a sweet phone, wish there was more community support though.

    Unlocking the bootloader needs only 2 "fastboot" commands and the unlocking key...........I can't see why HTC is taking so much time in unlocking the bootloaders.......all they need is to provide updates for all phones to support the commands.

    Now if Moto (& others) would follow suite... Would love to be able to get a full stable CM9 on my Droid X

    I didn't know HTV made the evo view 4g or the mytouch 4g slide. Hey cameron, you might want to fix the title of your article.
