    good job. Easy to follow and it works quickly.

    Couple adds here. If your phone doesn’t show Developer options under Settings, they may be hidden.

    Repeatedly tap on “Build number” Until “you are now a Developer” appears.
    About 10 fast taps.

    To Copy only the Token, put your cursor in between INFO and <. Hold down the option/alt key and pull down the cursor to select just the Token without the unwanted bits (INFO …. etc). Cmd C as usual and Cmd V into Terminal.

    Thanks, you saved me. Btw, have you made any tutorial like this one for changing the ROM? I want to put the international ROM, I got a branded one with lots of bloatware and stuck on 4.1.2, so I can update to 4.3 and with OTA’s enabled.

    After the command
    pbo-mbp:htc pbo$ ./fastboot-mac oem get_identifier_token
    -bash: ./fastboot-mac: Permission denied

    What I’m doing wrong?

    Super, I am not tech savvy but I figured this all out from the clear instructions. WELL DONE

    Desire 728 ??

    Just search this it\’s posted everywhere but the instructions are in Chinese. Anyways I Still cannot even get the bootlogger to unlock, because after going into download mode my phone doesn\’t want to connect to my computer or be detected so none of the commands in terminal work.

    I am stuck at step 14:
    If I give the terminal these instructions ./fastboot-mac flash unlocktoken Unlock_code.bin
    I get this \”reply\”
    -bash: ./fastboot-mac: No such file or directory

    What am I doing wrong?
