What is Bootloader In HTC Android?

To put simply, not only in HTC Android, bootloader is like the stronghold of any operating systems; a section that does things first before any other sections of the operating system do.
The Bootloader basically packages the instructions for which other partitions (sections) of the operating system use to operate. These partitions include the kernel, radio, baseband among others.
And yes. The bootloader also have its own debugging (modification) environment.


Why Is the Bootloader Locked?

Well, this needs not much explanation. Just like copyright, most Android devices (brands) OEM dislikes any form of alteration in either their hardwares or software. And so, with a locked bootloader, it becomes impossible to flash a custom ROM or modify any part of the device.
But then, Android open source claims would bear no meanings if the OS cannot be modified hence, the reason for the introduction of the official unlock by the brands which include Samsung, LG, Motorola, HTC and others.

Possible Errors (and Solutions) In Unlocking HTC Android Device Bootloader

It happens rarely though, you might encounter one error or another in your attempt to unlock HTC Android device bootloader. Below here, I enlist few of the errors we have encountered and how we are able to go through with it.


1. Incorrect Unlock Token Fetched: when you visit the official HTC Dev website, you will be asked to fetch an unlock token from the device using command prompt (Windows PCs) or terminal (Linux, Mac PCs). This unlocken token is required by HTC to generate corect bootloader unlock code for your device.

    The Issue (Error):
    HTCDev website returns invalid token response message.
    Solution:
    Ensure that you boot the device to bootloader screen and not HBoot screen before you issue the command to fetch the Unlock_token. See here: How to Boot HTC Android Device to Bootloader


2. Device Does Not Respond to Unlock_token flash command: when you fetch and submit the unlock_token on HTC website, HTC will send a very tiny file (few kb in size) to your email address. This file is to be flashed on the HTC Android device using command prompt.
All things being equal, the device is expected to respond to the command, prompting to proceed with the unlock. If the case is otherwise, this is what to do:

    The Issue (Error):
    Device fails to respond to the Unlock_token flash command.
    Solution:
    Factory reset (wipe, format) the device.


3. Command Prompt Returns get_unlock_token Error: if Command Prompt or Terminal returns error in your attempt to fetch the unlock_token from the device, this is what to do:

    The Issue (Error):
    Command Prompt or Terminal could not querry the device to fetch the unlock_token.
    Solution:
