How to Unlock the HTC One Bootloader [All Models]


This tutorial video will show you the easiest method to unlock the HTC One bootloader. You must first download a zip file containing a folder that has necessary files including drivers and fastboot files.
Keep in mind unlocking your bootloader will COMPLETELY wipe your device. Data and internal storage will be completely wiped. Unlocking your bootloader on the HTC One will allow for you to install a custom recovery such as Clockworkmod or TWRP and then root your device. Once the bootloader is unlocked you may root your phone here.

    when installing a custom rom and you wipe your data, will that wipe everything like this unlocking process did or will it just wipe the contents of the current rom?

    • HotInEER

      No it will not.

        I never flash dirty on my note 2 but since I have a lot of things saved on my sd card, I don’t have much to backup other Than a few apps. And I can just move certain things to my sd card which helps a ton.

        But since there is no sd card on the One I’m kinda skepticle about wiping absolutely everything each time and having to restore things between completely different roms…I’ve heard that can cause problems sometimes.

        Maybe I got too used to having an sd card on all my phones between the desire, electrify, and note 2. Lol

    Anyone having issues getting the unlock_code.bin file from HTC? I have my HTC account, get the “Successful” message when submitting my identifier token, but I do not get an email message. Confirmed email address is correct in HTC account. Tried three times now and nothing. Worked when I had my HTC 4G LTE…now nothing.

    Having problems using the shift+right click to open command window. I have windows 7, sticky keys are off, but still won’t do it. Is there something I’m missing in settings maybe? Or, what is the path to the file to enter manually?

    • bbjay351

      I figured out to move the files to desktop. But now, TWRP recovery won’t do anything. Can’t tap any icons, and when I hit the power button, it gives the swipe to unlock but can’t swipe. Have to reboot to phone. Installed Goomanager, and tried to update there but no luck. Any ideas?

      • brandon haynes

        right click on the fastboot file then click open file location…I know your already there but that’s how it worked for me… o and then shift+ right click

  • addo20

  • jatckas

    I have problems with the unlocked pincode it says: unloock token failed! What i can do??

  • Cory

    Even though my boot mode says Tampered and Unlocked is there a way to verify I did it correctly? I’ve tried to do the root procedure at least four times and the Root Checker app keeps saying “This device does not have proper root access”.
    Please help me.
