Thunderbolt gets root and NAND access
While there has been a lot of speculating when the HTC Thunderbolt will be launched (dare we say the 24th), XDA have been busy achieving root access. Well, they did just that. What we have here is a pre-production Thunderbolt (Mecha) which has successfully been rooted, its internal memory successfully broken into, with Clockwork Recovery installed.
Just remember it's a pre-production unit, it's entirely possible that it's likely that there may be some changes, thus affecting the entire process. But it's a step in the right direction. Now, is it the 24th yet? One more picture after the break. Also be sure to check out the Andirc channel.
