Hello,

Will unlocking my bootloader break the guarantee ?

I did a lot of flashing on the m7 , but have completely forgotten adb commands.

Can someone help me?

At first I will need to make a backup so I can go back if I screw things up how ?

And what was the url for htc bootloader unlock ? Htcdev something I guess.

Can someone who has the time help me a little bit.

regards MrCaligula / Norway

1: yes it may break warranty
2: Google for adb/fastboot minimal and check the stickied guides that's so easy to find
3: Google for HTC dev and it will be on top

If you on the other hand want to flash a custom ROM build for a higher firmware than the one you're running s-off is needed to flash the firmware corresponding to the custom ROM you like.
