    Note
    - I am personally waiting a little bit longer for a simpler, safer, and more sure-fire method, I'm not in a huge hurry to root quite yet, although it would be nice to get rid of some of this bloatware though. I am hesitant to root before the upcoming OTA update, simply because something important for the phone could be coming with it, functionality/efficiency-wise. I suggest being patient, but if you must insist on rooting now, do as much research as possible on the methods beforehand, and be very VERY careful, you are doing so at your own risk! If you've never done this before, there are several things that can go wrong and issues that can arise. Rooting will void your warranty if you try to take it in to be worked on, and you will also lose all of your data in the process, so be sure to backup. If you are unfamiliar with the process, let some others take the plunge first to get their valuable feedback. With that disclaimer being laid down, good luck rooters and enjoy! As always, I will do my best to keep this thread updated with new developments by editing this first post, so stay tuned for further happenings! I'll repeat, if you can be patient for awhile, there is no hurry to root yet! When the time comes, you will be notified here.

    Annual upgrade for me. BB did it for my D1 but they changed management and policy states it is up to the management of each reatailer store to decide if they will do annual. BB does not profit from annual upgrades so they refused to honor this year. Got to wait for Verizon store.

    Wow! That was fast. +1 on this quote as well.
    Since bionic will b locked it this might make getting the thunderbolt a nobrainer.

    My upgrade is not until August but my wife for some strange reason was thinking we were not doing gifts for each other on x-mass (but she loves her diamond tennis bracelet) and the Droid X I got her (just because her Eris was so beat) so she is buying the TB for me for x-mass and V-day full reatail. Still hard to believe I'm paying that much for a phone but my daughter is getting my Droid 1 and when my upgrade in August comes I'm sure there will be some pretty sweet dual cores (with unlocked bootloaders) out.

    can rooting do this?

    The HTC thunderbolt has DLNA. If you root the phone can you fudge with it, to make it work over 4g not just wifi? can you get aps like blockbuster or netflix to work threw dlna if they don't work when the phone is not rooted?

    Thunderbolt gets root and NAND access | Android Central

    Looks like it was a pre-production model they rooted. Hopefully there were no major software alterations made that will change the process on the final production model. Either way, we will see a lot of developer action on this phone very soon after its release.
