Disclaimer (borrowed from Cyanogemod): Use this tool at your own discretion. I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards, thermonuclear war, or you getting fired because the alarm app failed. Please do some research if you have any concerns about features included in this tool before running it! YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. Hard. A lot./

THANKS: Hack Kit IRC support channel guys for teaching me what I have learnt so far...(attn1, shad0wf0x, Anthony1s...and many others...=))

UNLOCKING THE BOOTLOADER WILL FACTORY RESET YOUR DEVICE!!!...YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

INTRODUCTION

This is tool is a beta release, I do not own all the devices supported but have tested in the HTC Aria. Any feedback, comment or advise is welcomed and do not hesitate to post it.

The tools is intended to help easy the process of unlocking / relocking the bootloader for HTC devices. This is for STOCK devices only, so if you are S-OFF or running a custom rom already, do not use this tool.

IF YOUR DEVICE BUILD VERSION IS NOT LISTED, YOU CAN CREATE A GOLDCARD AND FLASH A RUU THAT SUPPORTS HBOOT UPDATE.

Goldcard Creation: As Revskills site was taken down for good, you can create a goldcard image from the script (MANY THANKS TO Gene Poole for the .exe file)

REQUISITES

In order to succeed, you need to follow the following steps:
  1. HTC drivers must be installed (included in the tools\windrivers folder) with the phone unplugged.
  2. USB debbuging must be enabled in the device.
  3. Phone should be set as charge only as default.

INSTRUCTIONS

Make sure that you have complied with above requisites. The first time the script runs it will install adb, fastboot, wget and some other utilities if not found in your PC.
  1. Extract the HTC_Unlock_Bootloader_Tool.zip.
  2. Open the EasyUnlockTool.cmd file as admin (otherwise the script will show you an error message)
  3. If you device is supported, it will show you the menu.
  4. Follow the instructions on screen. If needed, the script will detect the build version, download the hboot update utility and run it in order to achive the unlock.
  5. Once you complete the update and the unlock token is shown on your screen, HTCDEV site will open for you to paste and submit it.
  6. When you get the unlock_code.bin file in your mail, download it to the tools\token folder and press a key. The script will flash it for you.
  7. If the above worked, you will be prompted in the phone to proceed to unlock.

Do you have the HTC Sync running? Antivirus can also cause that issue.

That is weird...I have test it with my antivirus on and works fine..have you tried opening it with the phone unplugged?

May I ask you a favor?? enable usb debugging in your phone, set it as charge only and plug it in. Then open a cmd as admin and type:

Quote:

adb devices

Can you paste the outcome here please? I guess that that might be the cause of the problem....

umm...that is fine. I have checked it here in the office and is working fine. Not sure what might be causing that. Do you mind if I have a look at it over teamviewer?
