Hi. I followed the HTC Dev unlock guide, but this is what I get after trying a few hundred times:
Unlocking Bootloader Failed!Sorry it didn't work out. Here's why:
We're sorry, but it appears your attempt to unlock the bootloader on this device has failed. This could be caused by several factors including simple errors in the entry of the unlock token, problems with your device, or a lack of manufacturer support for the unlocking process. Please see the specific error code listed below, and try again if necessary.

Error Code: 160.
Error Reason: MID Not Allowed.
WTF. NOT one guy on Google search encountered such problem... and I can assure you I'm not making any typos. I'm copying-pasting exactly what it's asking to, ex format:

(Using replaced original code with X1s here only for purposes of privacy if that applies that is)

My info: Stock, just got this phone, EVO 3D (Rogers), Radio 1.20.631.2
Rooted with Revolutionary, HBOOT 1.49.1107

You're help is appreciated.

If your rooted with revolutionary you can't use the HTC unlocker and why would you??? No wonder it doesn't work you are already unlocked and your hboot doesn't support the HTC unlocker you would have to take the OTA.

I uh... did not know Revolutionary recovery unlocks too... I thought it was just for root and s-off... (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1247392)

Only one way to test, need another carrier sim!

You can be s-off through alpharev's tool, update to HBOOT 1.50, and unlock with HTC's tool/token just fine. I've done it myself just to see what would happen once other's said s-off was retained with HBOOT 1.50. I don't think HTC's method does much other then add a UN in front of LOCKED from a usability standpoint though.

Everyone answering here is CDMA, so unlocked to them means something different. I doubt HTC's method will sim unlock your phone. It just makes it so you can flash custom recoveries/roms/kernels/etc.

What's odd is that other than deathscythevn and I, literally no one on the web has this issue, nothing at all! For a moment I felt special, but not in a good way.

xoltrix2000, I fix it already. You must flash ROM ship after you unlock with htcdev.
