HTC EVO View 4G and MyTouch 4G Slide get official HTC unlock

HTC has been weathering some stormy seas lately ranging from software issues to litigation. Well, for today, the HTC user community is getting some good news for a change and it looks like all roads lead to root. HTC’s dev portal, HTCDev.com added support for two new devices today, the HTC EVO View 4G and the MyTouch 4G Slide.

Now for those that don’t know, unlocking your phone adds a variety of features that normally you would not have the permissions to use. Root access allows you to take advantage of many features that carriers or manufacturers lock when shipping retail versions of their handsets. We won’t go into a full breakdown of what you can do with your rooted device here, suffice it to say, a lot in the community have seen fit to root their phones. Please bear in mind that though rooting your HTC phone through the HTC developer portal is official, it will still void your warranty. Happy hacking everyone!
