HTC is committed to assisting customers in unlocking bootloaders for HTC Desire:

http://www.htcdev.com/ruu/PB9920000_....03.0003_R.exe

http://www.htcdev.com/ruu/PB9940000_...hboot_1.09.exe

http://www.htcdev.com/ruu/PB9940000_...hboot_1.09.exe

After this you must reboot in FastBoot Mode and type in Command Prompt: fastboot oem get_identifier_tokenSubmit

Then submit the token in order to receive your unlock code binary file...

When copying the token, start with this line:

<<<< Identifier Token Start >>>>

And end with this line:

<<<<< Identifier Token End >>>>>


The difference with the official way is that you only unlock the bootloader. You don't get S-OFF so you can't make changes 'on the fly' with Android running, you'd need to do changes with the phone in HBOOT/fastboot mode.

If you are using AlphaRev's HBOOT, you should flash downgrade hboot first to be able to flash any other hboot...

the official way of unlocking bootloader. a bit more restrictive than true s-off (cant flash radio)

theres a thread with a little discussion about it here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1431726

Rom Development - only meant for very advanced technical discussion directly related to ROM development activity and the delivery of actual ROMs and ROM components ONLY. Nothing else goes in here.

If you have developed a ROM, or are working with others to do so, the development forum is somewhere to discuss and share ideas, post useful feedback and logs or crash dumps, and to discuss a common goal developers are trying to achieve.
So remember... before you start a thread in development, ask yourself what you are developing. If you can't answer, then stop, step away from the post button, and think about where you are posting. Would it be better in General or Q&A, or is some more time with your best friend, search, required?

it's what I was thinking, what's the point of unlocking it with this.. and if you do that I bet you won't be able to flash an alpharev hboot since you can't roll back hboot version, and running revolutionary won't work since it's different hboot version.

That's my hypothesis on this anyway.
