    For anyone out there that roots their devices to customize them, this is probably the best news you can get.

    It was not done out of the goodness of their hearts. The article I read said they were losing a lot of sales because of their encrypted boot loader.

    Oh yes it was out of the goodness of their hearts, or should I say Pocketbook!!

    Now we are talking, and making some progress. Android is an open operating system, this is the major selling point. So do not ruin it by making it difficult to run our devices in the way that they should be.... OPEN AND FREE (to modify).

    Thanks HTC I am glad to see you were listening!!!!
