    How to Unlock HTC One M8 Bootloader

    One M8 is the latest flagship model by HTC which is impressive in features. HTC brings all new level of quality in this. It has extremely durable body. No matter how you use the screen is covered with hardened Gorilla Glass 3. And the body consist of aluminum element. That makes it really strong. This does not means it is heavy. Next big thing in this device is a good-sized screen and amazing resolution. 5 inches is more than enough to do various job on the device. But the size makes it less pocket friendly. The width on the other hand is 70.6. still you can use it with one hand. Full HD gives great contrast. The internal storage is 16GB and supports 128GB extra storage via microSD. It has a quad-core platform. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset with 2GB RAM.

    Today I am going to show you how you can unlock the bootloader of this device. Most of the branded phone have a locked rom/bootloader. Due to which you cannot install custom rom or custom recovery on it. This is also called as the rooting process. Through which you can make your phone work more better. You can install various apps and games and remove bloatware. So let's move ahead with unlocking the bootlaoder. Follow the steps mentioned below properly and precisely. Any mistake can led to a dead phone. This is unofficial method which will ultimately result in warranty lost.


    • Backup your entire phone data. You can use various backup apps or you can also use HTC Sync Manager to copy the files in your pc. This can be easily restored later on.
    • Charge your phone. There must be atleast 80% of battery left in your device.
    • Enable usb debugging. You can find that in Settings > Developer Options > Usb Debugging.
    • Update your Windows system with latest HTC USB drivers. If you have HTC Sync installed then skip this step.
    • You will need to register your One M8 on HTC site. Your email id will be required for unlock code.
    • The device might stuck in boot loop mode. You will have to follow the entire process again, in case.
    • Install Android Fastboot on your system before unlocking the bootloader.
    • Remember this is a unofficial method. This will void phone warranty permanently. So do this on your own risk.
