It Was Fun While It Lasted, Verizon HTC One No Longer Unlockable on HTCDev

htc one

We all knew it was coming, it was more of a question of when rather than if. Verizon was not to pleased that their new HTC One could be bootloader unlocked through HTCDev.com. The phone and story just hit our hands yesterday, but according to a slew of people pouring into XDA, the ability has already been turned off. If you were one of the early adopters of the One yesterday and managed to get yours unlocked, consider yourself lucky. The rest of us will have to wait and see if our developer community can crack it without HTCDev.

    This is crazy! Does att do the same thing? I’m glad I am switching to tmobile and that they are good in my area and not forced to go with verizon.

    IMO, NOT a deal breaker for the “not so” average HTC1 potential customer.

    It was not for me..MY new HTC1 via FedEx from VZW. due in Monday.

    And will wait..maybe someday we can unlock this thing..
    .A workaround will be (sooner than later) coming .

    I imagine it may still be possible to do it with revone, although it may take a bit of time for them to adapt it a bit to work with the Verizon model.

    Damn it…. I decided to wait until the weekend to get this, now I’m kicking myself….. I hope a solution comes soon. F’ing verizon… I’m going to AT&T after my contract is up….
