As an admitted noob can I still receive OTA updates after using this to root?
I too am a noob when it comes to rooting. This will be my first attempt. Once I root using this tool will I need to do anything else or can I just use the phone as is. I ask because I see people talking about roms and I am not sure if there is another step I need to do after using this tool.
Also, supposedly HTC is releasing ICS soon. If I wait until after this update installs will this tool still work or might there be issues runing it?

As soon as i can scrap up $35 (I'm $35 short :P), I'll be moving on to the nexus 4, but the tbolt will definitely stay on my desk
If you'd like to help me out with that, I'd love you forever

This should keep me busy for a while
Thunderbolt --> rooted with Thunderbolt Tool 1.0
Hi, trter10. Before I try to do this, I was just curious whether the recent OTA Ice Cream Sandwich update could possible pose any problems since the firmware changed along with it?
I'd appreciate your input before I go on. Thanks!
Good question. ICS was loaded on my TB by OTA. Would love to root and roll back the phone to gingerbread. Wondering the same thing, can I use this to root with?
Tool for rooting is useless as of now. There is another root method in the works IIRC(may be done by now) do a quick google of tbolt ICS root.
