I have my fingers crossed that it will be that simple.

But I really think that they are going to spend the dev time on the GSM version to push it to market, and leave us CDMA users behind for a while.

Isn't HTC already unlocking the bootloaders in August though? It just looks like our phones will ship with the newest firmware/bootloader.

The sensation bootloaders are to be unlocked in august, the evo 3d in september so they most likely will have the latest firmware at launch.

Hi Jim,

Yes, our HTC EVO 3D will have an unlocked bootloader AT LAUNCH.

I do not see those last two words in your original quote. Might be waiting months like we are for that unlock...

If theirs truely is unlocked at launch, is it possible to flash the bootloader over or impossible because the GSM bootloader won't be compatible with the CDMA phone?
