HTC Incredible S has signed bootloader
« on: March 23, 2011, 03:58:35 pm »
Having the original Incredible and being a big fan of HTC's decision to keep the booloaders unlocked, I am quite disappointed to hear the news that the new successor, the Incredible S, will have a locked bootloader.

Are manufacturers trying to crack down on us who love to change to custom ROMs?
Perhaps all the glory and popularity of custom ROMs will only be known when Android was in its infancy. I have a feeling in a few years when all these phones come locked we will look back and remember the "good times" of freedom, like many, many other fields.  :-\
