Can someone try this?
Sorry for the crappy link. I think I need to have 10 posts before I can post a real link. The page is in Chinese but it's pretty easy to understand if you paste it into Google Translate:
www dot emui dot com/plugin.php?id=unlock&mod=unlock&action=apply
I think it's very similar to the htc bootloader unlock setup, but I don't know if it works for phones bought in the US.

Honestly, this phone has been out in China for a while, and the Chinese are definitely creating roms for it. So if someone really wants to put together some kind of donation pool I can probably just find a Chinese student who can just copy and paste the info from the Chinese language forums.

For example, here are some instructions for root (I haven't tested them, YMMV)
