    Question Which rooting tool for Verizon's GB 2.3.4 release?

    So, given that the new Verizon GB release also has a new radio, are there any special considerations when rooting a 2.3.4 Thunderbolt? Is a downgrade recommended or necessary to use some of the rooting tools out there?

    Better yet, which tool (Revolutionary?) works without a downgrade? Please advise. Thx!

    Do you think that it would be a problem to apply the OTA update while being rooted?

    Make sure you are on usb debugging. If you are, trying unselecting then reselecting usb debugging. Revolutionary works flawless for rooting gb. I've already done it immediately after I grabbed the update.

    Sent from my ADR6400L using DroidForums
    Currently running: Stock (for now)

    Was running:
    ROM: BAMF Forever 1.0.7/Kernel: Imoseyon 3.7.1/OC'ed Stock-1.6GHz
    ROM: Synergy/Kernel: Ziggy Kernels/OC'ed Stock-1.5GHz
