HTC DROID DNA to come with a locked bootloader, devs still working on a root
Working with a leaked ROM before even the handset had hit the market (which it does today), devs have managed to root it using the HTCDev bootloader tool. However, it seems HTC is locking things down now that it is time for the DNA to appear on store shelves. Devs' new efforts are now focused on trying to get the DNA rooted through the S-OFF tool.
Locked bootloader or not, we're sure this won't be that much of a problem for most users, as the DROID DNA is already a star in the Android world, mainly thanks to its large, extremely high-resolution display.
