Still no dice...I'm getting a blank web page when I click the submit token button.

Did you go to the website I provided? You can get your unlock token by following the steps provided on the website.

I suppose I should say that if you are not familiar with running fastboot commands and getting your phone into the bootloader then you probably shouldn't use the website there....Perhaps post on the thread for the toolkit to see if anyone can figure out why its not working for you

I did go to the link and logged in with same result. The instructions state that I only need to be logged into the site. This is my 1st HTC phone so I'm not fimilar with everything yet. I did post in the Dev section...waiting for a reply.

OK, so I was able to fix the web page issue. It was a problem with Firefox...I uninstalled it and now I'm able to open the toolkits Dev and token pages but I have another dumb issue. I swear I'm not this dumb but when I copy the token and paste it into the webpage...it seems to only copy this < and nothing else. I tried it a few times with same result. I did close everything down and tried to copy a random chunk of token and it did copy/paste but now when I copy it pastes the same small chunk. I rebooted my PC in hopes to removing everything I have copied. We'll see...

I can now copy and paste the token but what would you know....another issue. It must be user error but I'm following the exact instructions. When I copy the code (token start to token end), paste it then click submit...it tells me "invalid boot loader token length". It appears to the look the same as the example given on the site. The guy that posted the video said that it didn't copy a few lines when he pasted his token and he had to manually input them in. I can't see what he was missing due to him blacking out his code. Has anyone else come across this?

If there is even an extra space at the end of the paste it will register invalid. You must make sure there are no spaces. That was often the problem whenever I ran into the same error. Make sure you don't delete any other symbols accidentally as well. It's very precise.

I'm pretty sure I was spot on with my copy. There's 4 > symbols before the token and 5 at the end. I copy from the 1st < all the way to the end. I'll do it again to make sure I didn't copy any blank spots...I'll update later on.

You were right. The token pastes one spot over to the right...so I manually backed up each line and it worked. Next I had the file emailed to me. I downloaded the file (unlock_code.bin) Im assuming that the file I need to use is the MiB.bin that's in my down load folder.

Should be just the bin file, just read the instructions and rest assured you can't go wrong. Glad you got the token. Let me know when you're all unlocked! You're so very close my friend.

Do you know what the file is called once its downloaded? The file that I downloaded from my email is called unlock_code.bin but I dont see any file with that name...I only see MiB.bin and it didn't work. I'm using chrome browser...maybe I'll try firebox or something. It seems I have an issue after every single step....its frustrating since I'm following very simple instructions.
