    Rooting Thunderbolt Help

    I have a Droid X that I rooted fairly easy, and messed with the abd commands a little to get rid of the bloatware. I have a buddy with a thunderbolt that asked me if I could root his phone, and after about an hour and a half of research all I have been able to come up with is nadda. Everything I read is jiberish to me.....Can anyone assist me with setting up the adb for the process to root his device, and any help with the actual rooting would be great as well! Thanks in advanced for any help you guys are able to provide!

    Ah hell, I'll bite.

    [ROOT] Unlock Bootloader + Permroot 3/19/2011 - xda-developers

    While setting up ADB if you put it in your path it does not matter where you put the files on your PC. If you did not, make sure they are in c:/android/sdk/platform-tools or where ever it is on your PC. That is where you'll want to put the psnueter,wpthis, hbooteng.nb0 and busybox files.

    The other 2 files will be renamed to a PG05IMG.zip and flashed through Hboot. The above link goes into much more detail about this.

    Basically, if you have ADB working it's just a copy pasta job. Took me about 5 minutes minus downloads and Hbooot flashes. Very easy, just make sure you check the MD5's. They must match exactly.
