    Congratulations! And I agree with you, I rooted several D1 and a D2 and they were nothing compared to the white knuckles I had rooting the TB. Is it worth the sweat, yes, and there's actually some nice ROM's and themes out for it too.

    What did you do to remove the bloatware?
    I used Root Explorer to remove the APKs (System/Apps folder) in the stock rom then I installed Das BAMF 1.3.2 which has all the Verizon bloatware removed by default. [ROM][4.2.2011] Das BAMF 1.3.2

    Ok, uncle!!!

    I have tried for days thinking that I could get this. I have reviewed at least 15 pages of this thread and cannot find anyone else with my trouble... Everything works fine. I had no problems. But when it is done, I load superuser and it says that SU is updated fine. When I reboot prior to installing ROM Manager and the phone comes back it appears that the permissions are not correct. I install ROM Manager and select Flash ClockworkMod Recovery and select HTC Thunderbolt and get An error occurred while attempting to run priviledged commands!

    I even re-read the original XDA Dev site and created my own script to make sure each step was checked... Maybe I am missing something???

    If there are other's with the same trouble maybe you can help me? I am sorry but I tried to review this on my own...

    NOTE:
    I copied the original PG05IMG.zip to IMG.orig and the downgade to DNGRD.zip to the /sdcard/. That way I do not need to wait forever when doing this... Did this with the adb push commands... Pretty cool, the ADB stuff!

    NOTE2:
    I noticed that the S-Off is on the initial bootloader prior to the "upgrade" then when I press the up volume and it goes through to the upgrade I notice the S-On... I did not notice it off again...
    Code:
    @echo off
    goto StartHere

    I think that there must be some auto installer running. I not only removed them but first ran the

    adb uninstall ...

    for each of the pieces of Bloatware. Some errored but many were successful. They were fine until I rebooted... Now this could be because the phone is not yet rooted, as you see in the previous post, I do not know if I am there?
