i think we all wished the unlocker did that, but alas it unlocks fastboot commands and allows you to be able to flash roms from the phone and push kernels via fastboot.

that list is mainly for phones that came out before sept 2011 i beleive, in theory all phones after that date are supported and you would just use the other supported phone option

So if using the HTC dev tool let's u flash a custom recovery and roms and let's u fastboot flash kernels what is the benefit of achieving s off then?

In the case of this phone, it allows you to write to /system outside of recovery, and it allows you to flash radios and kernels in recovery.

I guarantee they will block HTCDev.com before release. They did the same thing with the Inc4G, AT&T Hox, and Rezound. The Rezound they allowed after a few months, but they didn't with the HOX/Inc

Well they blocked it after 2 weeks with inc 4g not prior to release

Both are unofficially unlocked now at least though

Will unlocking the device like this break the android DRM stuff?
For example i unlocked my bootloader on my asus tf300 and things like hulu broke even running stock rom.

I think there was an error in the coding where it tells unlock which partitions to remove write protection from. That, or they just wanna make our lives hard for some reason.

Either way, you cannot write to /system while the phone is booted normally without S-Off. Even as root.

Just tried to unlock my DNA (Verizon pre-order) It was a NO GO! It appears Verizon has struck yet again.
