    On a forum for power users, you better believe root will come up in almost every thread.

    Just a question...when tb actually comes out since I don't have it but I'm rooted, will gingerbread update be better since it will no longer be a leak? I don't even have the new radios. But I'd like gingerbread just because of netflix and the lock screen

    Google

    just sayin....lol///

    on a side note---> just got a TBolt from ebay, practically new and it hasn't randomly rebooted once in these first three days, web browsing is almost as fast as my RoadRunner service, and screen to screen is very, very fast...I may have gotten lucky??... however the battery life sucks!!, so hopefully a GB update does come..or I'll just 'root'...lmao

    Yeah probably. But still don't take the ota. There will be a rooted version that you can flash probably before the OTA goes live.
    And don't hold your breath for that lock screen in the official release. Probably standard sense slide down lock screen.

    I can't stand all the rumors about the GB update......June 30th....July 8th....they just keep going. When I ask a Verizon or HTC person they just say sometime in the future it should come out, no plans yet. That's what they also told me the day before the reboot update. Wish they would just let people know what was going on.

    I wish I could get paid every time someone posts something that an idiot Vz rep told them, as if it's fact.

    No, I was able to download the update the morning of July 9th with no problems. It has been running pretty good since then. I have had just a couple slow downs while I was in messaging, but I rebooted and problem fixed each time.
