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.

Budget phone. The very sound of those two words, together, makes me slightly ill. In fact, it makes me almost immediately seethe with a sort of "nerd-rage." I hate the way budget phones are peddled onto the tech-illiterate by commission-motivated hucksters at "Big Four" carrier phone stores. I hate seeing people get locked into 2-year contracts because they got a "great deal" on a smartphone. "It was free!" they'll say, and that the nice sales representative (his name was Jimmy) kept them from buying "something they didn't need," because they walked in with a firm spending limit and they weren't going to budge!

It appears this may have been a special offer limited to select customers who preordered a different color that was delayed, and that the web page was set up to never run out of stock. The shipping date may be completely wrong, as well. We're waiting on a response from Best Buy to confirm, but given that it's a holiday, we're not expecting it until Monday. We advise you not to order.

Update: Justin has repackaged the Kindle Fire root app apk, removing encryption and open sourcing the file.

Update: BurritoRoot may not work on version 6.0 firmware. If you're having trouble, update your firmware and try again.

On the historic date of December 20th, 2011, Amazon pushed out software version 6.2.1 to its Kindle Fire. The update was fairly minor -- its main additions had to do with improved scrolling and WiFi passwords -- but it brought about one devastating change: it broke all previous methods of root.

Who wants a free Galaxy Nexus? You do? We thought so, and we've one to give away - CDMA or GSM, it's winner's choice this time.

Before we get into the giveaway details, though, we want to give some love to the guys at BitHack, without whom this giveaway wouldn't be possible. BitHack is the dev team behind the game Apparatus, a title that you've probably heard quite a few times 'round here at Android Police.

Update 12/22: Guess what? Yeah, It's back again. Just in time for Honeycomb.

Update 12/12: If you missed this opportunity the first time around, the gods have shined upon you. It's back.

Update: Hope you grabbed this deal while it was live, because it's gone now! 

For anyone holding out on buying the HTC EVO View 4G on Sprint, the opportune moment just arrived. Over at eBay's Daily Deals site, the View 4G is going for a mere $240 with no contract - a solid $160 off the current Sprint price (it doesn't even look like you can get it without a 2-year contract from Sprint).

Sprint's variant of the HTC Flyer - the HTC EVO View 4G - is finally getting a taste of Honeycomb, bringing it up to par with competing Android tablets.

Originally launched with a heavily customized version of Android 2.3, the View 4G is now receiving an over-the-air update to Android 3.2.1. As you'd expect, the update brings Honeycomb to Sprint's version of the Flyer, featuring HTC's Sense overlay, and on-screen buttons which replace the View 4G's capacitive keys – here's the full changelog for this 217MB update:

This update adds Android 3.2.1 (Honeycomb) and a new virtual and holographic user interface.
