So...just to clarify...Verizon users cannot: unlock bootloader, flash custom recovery/SU, or anything without using the mail-in method at the current time...is this correct?

yes that is correct. you could just buy the unlocked developer edition and then unlock root and s-off then flash the Verizon RUU and have a Verizon edition that is unlocked and awesome. or mail your phone to Jcase and he will unlock the bootloader and s-off for you. either way

Haha, well...too late for buying the unlocked version...but, if we cannot come up with a backup device to mail-in our current...from what I gather...jcase is pretty certain Sunshine will be available for the Verizon users in the future?

yeah the problem is that Jcase is having trouble coming up with a good way to package the exploit he is using on the HTC 10 verizon so that it can be done in the SunShine app. Thats the hold up at this point.

Great info and videos! Do you have any idea if custom Roms will be different (as in less development, choices, and frequency) for the Verizon variant? I'm debating which phone to get, thanks...

If you want to use it on Verizon you likely will be stuck on custom roms and Verizon firmware anyways ....without firmware from vzw it won't work and without a rom that has vzw advanced call features built in you will be missing out on stuff.

If anyone can help or point me in the right direction would be appreciated because I think my phone is broke. I have an unlocked HTC 10 (non-carrier), unlocked bootloader, s-off(via sunshine), twrp 3.0.1-0-pme. The phone was rooted but ater a factory reset (s-on during that time) to try to get xposed to work data no longer works. I've done the following at least 3 time each with no change in results: format data, factory reset, flash SuperSU-v2.72-forceencrypt, flash SuperSU-v2.72, restore back up from twrp, re-flashed twrp. Can anyone tell me if I'm missing a step or is my phone useless. Thank you in advance!

yeah this does happen at times you need to restore a stock system image and boot image in twrp then wipe encryption to get your DATA working again.

    My first HTC since the m7, trying to unlock the bootloader but keep running into the issue in this pic.
    I know it's probably something simple that I'm missing.
    Greatly appreciated for any help

    Are you using the fastboot.exe that is provided on htcdev.com? The standard fastboot.exe that comes with the platform-tools will not work.

    Hey guys I wanted to ask a question b4 I bricked my phone. So I purchased a sprint htc 10 the other night, sim unlocked it with NV method. Got LTE on at&t but drops to G a lot. I was wondering if I unlock the BL, root & twrp it, would I be able to RUU flash the US unlocked version and it work the same or even better or where I used the NV method best to leave it alone?
    You'd have to ask in the Sprint forums, but I think in the end you'd still have to flash the Sprint radios so you'd likely be back in the same spot reception-wise. Either way you'd need to buy sunshine to do change it to a u.s unlocked.
