I thought i'd follow some of the tutorial videos on the tutorial thread I linked above. I went to the HTCdev website and thought i'd do a mock run through of the bootloader unlocking process without the phone connected just to see the various steps and to get the software on my computer in readiness. Well, I fell at the first hurdle as I can't even get the Android SDK to install. I just get a black CMD box flash up for the merest fraction of a second then nothing.
Oh well, another day methinks. I'm off to bed.
