    Rooting thunderbolt verizon..

    I am running android ver 2.2.1 i have been waiting for gingerbread both Verizon and HTC have no idea why i don't have it yet.. I have been told to just wait.. I have been waiting for 3 months now. Would like to root but have been reading on different methods.. What is the easiest way to root and get gingerbread... would like to have a step by step as to what to download and install to get GB.

    You don't need to root. There's a thread here somewhere, with the link to download. I finally used it, about Dec. 24, because Verizon said phone would deteriorate without update. When I find it, I'll be back. It will wipe data, just like a factory reset, so start backing up!

    Honestly rooting and flashing to a ported gb rom is so much better. I have vicious on my TB and I'm way more happy with it. It made the TB seem like more of an upgrade from the og droid. Here's where I got my how to on rooting http://androidforums.com/thunderbolt-all-things-root/459410-htc-thunderbolt-all-things-root-guide.html

    "Still no gingerbread" thread, on Dec. 25. Not a long thread, so read the whole thing. I installed .9 update.

    What is taking so long for updates to roll out? Both Verizon and HTC thought my phone was broken, and I would need to send to HTC to install. That's when I decided to use the download.

    I'm no expert on this. If you read the thread from Dec. 25, you can see that I had to be walked through it. I had help from some kind people.

    Also, if you can read instructions on link to see what to do. Downloading does not by itself update your phone.
