    I am going through the steps to unlock the HTC Sensation 4g Tmobile US. And I keep getting Security fail on the reload with the file on the sd card. I have unlocked the bootloader, and ran a cw backup. I am stuck at this point, and suggestions?

    The thing is, after you successfully unlock it, if you ever send your phone back to the factory settings,the phone still remains unlocked ? Or I have to unlock it again ?
