When you unlock your bootloader you void your warranty. We can do whatever we want to our devices and still be covered under HTC Manufacturer Warranty. You Bork your phone you have to find a way to fix it.

Tethering works out the box without being detected as well.

I always find a unbranded version a advantage over a carrier version.

S off your device and than supercid. When all the RUU are released you can flash any of them. Right now we have a GPE conversion. Besides that we can flash any rom we want. Be careful and always remember to read if it is compatible with your model.

My credit card covers my phone warranty for two years as long as I purchased the phone via it. So I'm covered. If something happens, all I gotta do is take a brick and bash my phone with it, my credit card will cover hardware damages as well. Lol.

There are ways around everything, you just need to know it. Either way, I've never been scared to lose crappy warranties just because I felt the need to unlock the phone lol.

Nope, but jealousy of ignorant people is priceless lol.

I think the biggest fraud is from HTC to void warranty on unlocking bootloader. I'm just having myself covered with my resources.

Unlocking boot loader MAY void your warranty. In the USA and Europe it will not(unless they can prove 100% that you caused the issue) due to consumer protection laws. Varies by country.
