Default HTC One Has Bootloader Unlock Issues

Since it was going to be moved here anyways....

This is due to a bunch of apps that have been stashed in the preload directory on the HTC One’s data partition. In a factory reset, that particular directory will not be touched, but unlocking the device would not have this “safety buffer” built in, hence removing these files from the data partition, doing away with apps like the Calculator, Flashlight, Ringtone Trimmer, and Sound Recorder. I think I am all right without those, save for the calculator app. What about you?
Much ado about nothing, IMO. A snag, to be sure, but nothing like letting the magic smoke out of the box, huh?
