Back at the beginning of June, HTC let it be known to the world that they would be opening the gates to those who love to tinker with their HTC-manufactured phones. Specifically, the company would be allowing those who want it, the ability to get their hands on kernel source codes right from the source, as well as plenty of other tools that would be made available in due time. That time has finally come, as HTCDev.com has finally launched. Unfortunately, though, if you were looking to unlock some bootloaders right now, you’re out of luck.
However, HTC didn’t launch a useless site. If you want to get your hands on Sense APIs and add-ons, this is your place to do it. With the OpenSense SDK, developers have easy access to all of those things, right from HTC. Additionally, while HTC has been providing kernel source codes for awhile now, you can now find them even more easily at their new home, right from the HTCDev main site. Just one click, and you’ve got access to the kernel source code repository, put together in a nice list for your browsing pleasure.
The unlock bootloader web tool isn’t available right now, as we mentioned earlier. However, HTC recommends that you check back frequently to keep up to date on what’s going on. HTC still needs to do some updating to their released devices, but the web tool should be made available later this month.
