HTCdev Unlock bootloader
I wonder if someone can give me confirmation for peace of mind..
I was reading through the small prints in the htc unlocker, and it says that all personal data and installed softwares will be erased to protect personal data by carring out the unlock procedure.
The very reason I wanted to root the phone was so that I could install clockworks and the likes that allow me to do full backup of the phone (and remove bloatware), and those software's requirement are that I am rooted.
IN order to root, I will lose everything installed on my phone? What about apps i have purchased through the market?
Does my google account somehow remember that I have purchased it before, and allow me to download the same apps again without charge?
Or is it that the unlocking procedure does not mess with my installed apps and all personal data?
I hope it is the latter, otherwise it means that people are going ahead with unlocks at the cost of hassle incurred from setting up your phone again....
Someone have simple answer?
