Default [Q] htc evo 3d (gsm, hboot 1.49.0018) unlock bootloader without htc dev?

Hello, is it possible to unlock my bootloader without using the htc dev method? This because i don't want to lose my warranty! I know that after unlocking my bootloader i will need a different bootloader to root my device, this is no problem for me.so is there a possibility to unlock my bootloader without htcdev.com? My hboot and type of device can be found at the title of this thread.kind regards, a proud htc evo 3d owner( i have the device for two weeks now)!

I had the same problem. EVO 3D GSM + HBoot 1.49.0018

The Revolutionary method doesn't work and as far as I'm aware, the only way to unlock your bootloader is via the HTC Method. I have done this and rooted my device. I am now going to attempt http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1495657

Sorry I can't be of more help. Extremely new to this!

Default thank you

Thank you for your reply! You have also vodafone, i think? Because of the hboot and the link you send me.thanks vodafone, for making it hard to root my device! I really won't use the htc method because i want to keep my warranty!

My phone is unbranded.

I was a little uncertain as to whether to root on the HTC Method but I just took the plunge. For me the ability to root surpassed the usefulness of the warranty.

Veevoh, how did you root your phone? I have an unbranded HTC EVO 3D GSM HBOOT 1.49.0018 with unlocked bootloader via HTC Method, but i just can't find a way to root. Did you downgrade to HBOOT 1.49.0007?

If your already unlocked via htc method then just flash a recovery, make a nandroid, and then flash a Rom. Take a look at the gsm development thread and spend a few hours reading to give you a better understanding of what the risk's and benefits are of rooting. Also as I previously mentioned if your unlocked and s-off and your on a stock Rom after you flash your recovery then just to gain root you can flash the Su.zip and then hit up the market and download busybox and you will have root on your stock Rom. I'd highly recommend making a nandroid backup as soon as you get your recovery on your device. Then make a copy of it and keep it on your pc just so you always have a stock backup to revert to and a copy of it.

No need for HTC unlock you.can downgrade you Rom with the old Rom version that comes with old hboot then use revaluation to s-off. I will post link to guide I used later.

cool, looks like i got lucky with my asda phone.

just for reference? , to get back to how the phone came , i just run the fastboot s-on command and then run the latest firmware update ruu and that should return me to hboot 1.49.0018 s-on locked?
