    A developer named dbzfanatic over at XDA has put together the first one-click easyroot + S-OFF for the HTC TBolt. Here's his description:
    This looks very slick, although keep his disclaimer in mind when trying this out. After any of you guys try this out, let us know in the forums how smoothly the process went. Of course, below is the link to the XDA thread to get more info, and the download links.

    I first tried this method but ran into some ADB issues. Not with the application itself but with windows...I got impatient and just rooted manually via my linux box. Really slick application though!

    I used this a few days ago before he released it (i.e. tested it for him) and it worked great. Some minor issues with bad pushes but it will not proceed after such issues so there's little risk of bricking or screwing up your device. If you use it please consider donating to him for all his time and work. Seriously, a week after release and it's been rooted and now there is essentially a '1-click' root. This people should be rewarded/supported!

    despite the battery issues, i like the speed at which some of the dev community is getting behind this phone

    Agreed, there are already several debloated ROMs and a few slightly customized ones. Slayer has confirmed he's going to port CM7 and there are a lot of other great devs working on their own custom ROMs already!!!dancedroiddancedroid

    Obviously I've been on these forums a while, and I really dig the entire community and if I had time would contribute myself. But I'll be frank, I'm seriously digging Sense (now that they've built-in a skin changer to 2.0). Otherwise I would have rooted by now. Some of the apps that need taken off I simply manually if I need. Who knows though. I may get tired of Sense in a couple of months and by then I should be graduated and possibly ROMing myself....dancedroid

    Is rooting the only way to remove the bloatware like blockbuster, bitbop, etc.?

    Unfortunately yes because all those .apks are in /data/app or /system/app (it's been a while so I forgot). Either way, the only method through which they can be removed is if you get R/W access to the root directory.

    I'm looking forward to rooting so I can pull that boot sound out... that thing has woken up my wife more than once late at night as I'm tinkering with the phone. Once I dozed when I rebooted, and it scared the living crap out of me as it was sitting on my chest...

    Hahahaha yeah I could see how that would freak you out. It'd be peaceful to me though, I love storms.

    ok maybe I'm blind... I'm looking for the manual root thread, but the one that doesn't require flashing back to a previous firmware... I *thought* that existed, but maybe I'm wrong?

    EDIT: nevermind, I AM blind...
