Exclusive: HTC Thunderbolt MR2 Update (1.66.605.2)
From Chingy and TeamAndIRC comes Maintenance Release 2 for the HTC Thunderbolt. The OTA update should be hitting stock phones on June 15th, but today we have some early treats.
The major improvements brought about by MR2:
- Fixes random reboots
- Improves GPS locking
- Improves signal strength
- Add 3G/LTE toggle in settings
- And more
First up, the full, signed RUU. This is for you developers and stock users who wish to get the update early. Be warned, however, as this will wipe data if installed. Also, installing this over a rooted phone WILL brick it.

For rooted users, the custom ROMs:

This is the first and most developed ROM based on this update, including power widgets in the notification pull-down, custom theming, and much, much more.

This ROM is specifically de-bloated for the lightweight ROM user. It is fast, stable, and well tested. Enjoy and feel free to use this as a base for other ROMs.
PlainJane v3 by TeamAndIRC, courtesy of Rootzwiki download and support available at http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php?175-ROM-Plain-Jane-1.66.605.6-(aka-MR2-OTA2-v3)-6-9-2011&p=1758
An almost untouched ROM, for those that want a stock experience but need root. Root and BusyBox are included, along with all the standard Verizon bloat. Again, feel free to use this as a base for other ROMs.

[RUU][Radio] MR2 HTC ota leak 1.66.605.2
Credits in link.
Eta for this ota: June 15 th
Tired of your reboots and want better battery life...flash through hboot. Root not required so even stock users can update
This is the leak for HTC froyo ota. I believe this radio works with gb roms as well. Will not work with previous froyo roms. If u are not rooted no need to worry as u will be flashing full release.
If u are rooted don't flash the full release but the b16 links below in the link above.
Now the only excuse for whining about your phone is "im too lazy to learn how to flash a radio".
All you need to do is rename the download to pg05img.zip and place on root of sdcard. Power off...hold down volume while powering on..press power button once in hboot...press volume up to accept update...once done power button to reboot. Viola done! Make sure u have more than 70% battery before applying this. Do not power off during update or u will have a brick.
This will wipe ur current setup.
Not responsible for your phone as always but I did this this morning and no issues.
