Okay so I used the SuperCID apk and it converted my CID to a bunch of Twos and then I used the HTC unlock method to unlock my phone. But after I select root my phone I'll void the warranty it boots into Android mode where I reboot it into recovery it says locked. It doesn't say relocked or unlocked it simply says locked like it never unlocked my phone even though it had just said it unlocked it maybe 2 minutes prior. Has anyone else had this problem? How do I fix it?

Re: [Q] Hboot won't unlock
Can you try to explain what's happening a little bit better.

Did you flash the unlock_code.bin file?

Okay so I ran the SuperCID from http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=36976137 and it changed my CID to 22222222.
I then do "fastboot flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin" that I got from HTC and then select Yes on the prompt.
It then boots into normal android mode and then it goes through the normal setup. I then enable the debuging mode and then do
"adb reboot-bootloader" it then reboots into bootloder locked.

Is there a way for you to take a video of when you send the unlock token and click yes on your phone. Because I'm really not sure what's going wrong.

Keep flashing it until it unlocks sometimes it takes 20 times

I've only heard of it taking multiple times if your trying to re unlock, not on the first unlock.

Re: [Q] Hboot won't unlock
If you do a factory reset first from bootloader then unlock, it will work first time every time.......it'll wipe your SD tho. Once you have a custom recovery flashed don't use that method anymore tho

For me. I had to turn phone completely off. Then boot into HBOOT/Fastboot in order for the unlock to work. Make sure fast boot is unchecked in the power options before turning off.
