No, I just sent him the code I got from HTCDev when I unlocked yesterday before the crackdown.

Will that work? If I went out and bought an HTC One today, could I just use someone else's unlock code?

No it wouldn't work like that. I forgot to say that I sent him the code because he wants to compare some peoples codes via a Hex Editor or something. If you try to use someone else's unlock code, it won't work.

Default If I can do something to help

I was one of the guys who unlocked the bootloader before the crackdown based on this thread saying it wouldn't take Verizon long to block it. If there's something I could do to help (as long as I won't be under too much risk of bricking my shiny new phone), don't hesitate to tell me what to do. Also, if there's a bounty anywhere for full S-Off, I'd be more than happy to pitch in. I just want to make sure this device won't be ignored by the hacking community now that the HTC Dev Unlock no longer works.

No - that code is somehow tied to your unique device ID

I dont really know if this is something that will work or not but I thought it was worth getting a few other peoples opinions. I was wondering if it is possible to somehow edit the Unlock_Code.bin file that people got from the HTCdev site before it was locked down, if we can find a way to edit that file to work with another device we can continue to unlock devices.

The thread for this idea in the Q&A Section - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2417135

I think the file is signed with HTC's private key which is why it is flashable... otherwise we could just flash anything if you edit it the signature is altered

Thanks to all the hard work from the devevlopers over the past 24 hours. I also was able to unlock mine immediately after picking it up. I also flashed CWM recovery and have root. The debloat script worked like a charm as well.

Really surprised to see HTC/Verizon reacted and locked it down as fast as they did. I understand it is being blocked on HTCdev but I am imagine someone at Verizon was frantically calling them just a couple hours into launch day screaming at them to block the tool.

Comparing them and they only have 4 bits that match. Not a good sign.
