    Easy root for TB now available. Link inside

    Please be extremely careful when doing this and follow any instructions for the process. I would also advise to read over the forum linked before going through it to make sure there are no known issues.

    Mods can we please sticky this thread?

    Easyroot + S-Off - xda-developers


    This is my easy-rooter for the Thunderbolt. I do not personally have a thunderbolt but I have tested it and fixed as many problems as I could. As far as I'm aware this will only work with firmware versions lower than version 1.12.605.9.
    If adb does not see your device try installing the htc sync drivers. If it still does not register please post here.

    THIS IS A WINDOWS-ONLY PROGRAM. You must have windows or a windows VM to use this.

    As always there is a small chance of bricking your phone.

    DISCLAIMER: AndIRC is not affiliated with this program and by using it you agree that neither AndIRc nor myself is responsible for any damages caused by this program.

    This provides all necessary files and gives you in-program instructions.

    Known bugs:
    • In step 2 the program will occasionally display an error and inform you to contact someone on the AndIRC channel. If this is before the program displays your hash (which should be 6991368ee2deaf182048a3ed9d3c0fcb as stated) you should be fine. If it is after the hash and/or the hash is different click the step 2 button to start over. Do not restart your device. If you receive the error again then it is legitimate and needs to be corrected.
    • Sometimes your device will not restart into the bootloader on its own. This is usually due to an adb error and redoing the step usually fixes it. This normally only occurs on step 1.
    Issues:
    • The files take a long time to push. It could be anywhere from 3-10 minutes.


    Credits:
    Team AndIRC - for developing the root method found here
    XDA - for giving me the chance to make programs like this
    me - for making it

    Donations:
    Please donate to charity first and myself only if you want to. Please make donations in AndIRC's name as well as your own. You can donate here, to the Japan Relief Fund, or any other worthy charity.

    my donation link is in my signature

    For those of you who are interested in how this method works, here's the explanation. I will be focusing on what the program does,not user interaction so much except where necessary.
    Push busybox, psneuter,and misc.img to /data/local/
    Push PG05IMG_downgrade.zip to /sdcard and rename to PG05IMG.zip
    chmod psneuter and busybox
    execute psneuter
    check the md5 hash of misc.img
    flash misc.img to /dev/block/mmcblk0p17 if the hash is c88dd947eb3b36eec90503a3525ae0de
    reboot into the bootloader
    press power to enter bootloader and flash PG05IMG.zip (done by user)
    once back in android:
    remove PG05IMG.zip
    push busybox, psneuter, and wpthis to /data/local
    chmod all 3 files
    run psneuter
    run wpthis
    push the engineering hboot(hbooteng.nb0) to /data/local/
    check the md5 of the hboot file (it should be 6991368ee2deaf182048a3ed9d3c0fcb)
    if it is flash hbooteng.nb0 to /dev/block/mmcblk0p18
    push the PG05IMG.zip file to /sdcard
    reboot into the bootloader
    again press power and flash PG05IMG.zip (done by user)
    push su, busybox, and psneuter to /data/local
    chmod psneuter and busybox
    run psneuter
    mount /system as read/write (rw)
    copy su to /system/xbin/su
    chown and chmod su
    install superuser and RomManager
    I do recommend learning ADB as it is quite helpful but I realize that for some people that is a daunting task at first glance. I remember being a n00b and this will allow you to fully utilize your phone while still learning at your own pace on the side.

    AAAAAAAAAAA. I JUST finished rooting mine using ADB and now this is posted...was sweating bullets, because I'm a total ADB noob, but got it done, after three cups of coffee and a few hiccups.

    Not at the moment. This "easyroot" is basically just a more automated version of the long root. I doubt we will see anything like z4root for the thunderbolt yet.

    Yeah I would say its going to be a while for something like that to come out, if even possible. With HTC locking everything down on the TB, the manual way may be the only way to do it. Not sure though. Im sure someone with more knowledge will pipe in.

    Every phone is different, and the TB is pretty much the most locked down HTC device to date.

    Going to attempt to do this later... I went from the D1 to the DX so there was a big change in the simplicity of loading ROMs/rooting. I thought this phone would be a lot easier ((

    Trebb, after this process you can do just like before, with rom manager if you like. Once this is done you can install rom man and install clockwork mod.
