    I already feel stupid, but I downloaded the auto-root file, it downloaded as a .rar file, the next step says to unzip it, so Im sure I did something wrong. where do I get the zipped file?

    Im still having problems, I did get the file unzipped and followed the directions to the point where I select "1" for start at the begining, and select "y", then it says I should see the serial number for my device, but I dont. I have debugging activated and "charge only" selected. What am I missing?

    Ok, got it figured out, I "thought" I had the sync drivers installed but didnt, so installed the drivers and got it rooted, now Im just checking out the goodness. Do I need to install something to get rid of some of the bloatware?

    Awesome thanks for this.
    I have been wanted to root for a while to get the crap off the phone, but was nervous about rooting the other ways. This is the best!

    Now that you are rooted, HOW do you get the crap off your phone?

    Search these forums and Google for debloating your phone. I must say you really should try the gingeritis rom. I love it.

    I recently had to replace my thunderbolt using asurion insurance, and I never even spoke to a person. I did my claim online, they overnighted my new tbolt, and i had a new phone in hand in about 18 hours, not a single question asked.

    On an unrelated note...
    I used the automated root process on this phone, and it was a lot simpler than when i used adb to root my last few android phones.
