    Step 2

    Note that adb is required.
    Push misc.img, busybox, and psnueter using the following commands:
    adb push psneuter /data/local/
    adb push busybox /data/local/
    adb push misc.img /data/local/
    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/psneuter
    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/busybox
    Step 3

    This step will gain temp root and flash the custom misc.img. Run:
    adb shell
    Now the shell should display "$".
    Run:
    /data/local/psneuter
    You will now be kicked out of adb, and adb will restart as root. Let’s confirm the md5 of misc.img:
    adb shell
    At this point, the shell should display "#".
    Run:
    /data/local/busybox md5sum /data/local/misc.img
    Output should be "c88dd947eb3b36eec90503a3525ae0de." If it’s anything else, re-download the file and try again.
    Now let’s write misc.img:
    dd if=/data/local/misc.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p17
    exit
    Step 4

    Here you will rename PG05IMG_downgrade.zip as PG05IMG.zip and place it on your SD card. Then, run the following command:
    adb reboot bootloader
    Choose the bootloader option and press power; let the ROM flash. When asked to upgrade, choose yes. Don’t freak, it’s a long reboot.
    Once done, reboot and delete PG05IMG.zip from your SD card.
    Set up the two part exploit, to gain root and unlock MMC.
    Push wpthis, busybox, and psnueter.
    adb push psneuter /data/local/
    adb push busybox /data/local/
    adb push wpthis /data/local/
    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/psneuter
    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/busybox
    adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/wpthis
    Step 5

    Next, enter the following commands:
    adb shell
    /data/local/psneuter
    To unlock eMMC:
    adb shell
    /data/local/wpthis
    exit
    Step 6

    Please pay attention – this is very important. This step involves a small chance of bricking if you mess up.
    To push the eng bootloader:
    adb push hbooteng.nb0 /data/local/
    adb shell
    /data/local/busybox md5sum /data/local/hbooteng.nb0
    If the output does not match "6991368ee2deaf182048a3ed9d3c0fcb" exactly, stop, delete it, and re-download it. Otherwise, continue.
    Now we will write the new bootloader.
    dd if=/data/local/hbooteng.nb0 of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18
    Confirm proper write:
    /data/local/busybox md5sum /dev/block/mmcblk0p18
    If the output does not match "6991368ee2deaf182048a3ed9d3c0fcb," try again; if it still doesn’t work, seek help from chat.andirc.net in channel #thunderbolt. DO NOT REBOOT.
    Now, reboot your phone, rename PG05IMG_stock.zip as PG05IMG.zip and put on your SD card. Then flash it. This will upgrade you to release firmware with an S-OFF bootloader.
    Next, run this command:
    adb reboot bootloader
    Choose the bootloader option, and press power; let the ROM flash. When asked to upgrade, choose yes. Don’t freak, it’s a long reboot.
    Once done, reboot and delete PB05IM.zip off of your SDCard. You are now fully rooted.
    If you prefer videos, you might be interested in the following, however it uses an older method and will be slightly different:
