    It seems like it is taking HTC an inordinate amount of time to get Gingerbread working on their "flagship" phone the HTC Thunderbolt. Luckily, modders in the community have "run with the ball" and you can get an unofficial Gingerbread hack that comes straight from a leaked RUU. Rootzwiki and theMkiMik, have worked hard to make this version 2.07.605.0 Gingerbread RUU hack work on the TBolt, but it supposedly still has some bugs, so keep that in mind. If you are brave enough to give it a whirl, head over to the RootzWiki Source link below for instructions and download.

    Also, one of our astute forum members, brownsfan, saw this same story earlier this morning: GB for Thunderbolt leaked

    What it looks like so far ....

    The build seems fully functional, and faster than the previous release. The new quick settings from the statusbar drop down is nice.WiFi is working, although as before on my network, G only, no N. Netflix downloaded from the market and works, BUT will not play movies. No notification about DRM, but fails to play in the same manner as it did just after the last release. 4g functions fine, the phone also functions fine. Screen changes are a bit snappier. It is Android 2.3.4,with HTC Sense 2.1, the UI appears virtually the same as last release. The app drawer does have some refinement, it now "flips" pages every 16 apps, no more continuous scroll. There are now sections for "All apps", "Frequent", "Downloaded", and "Verizon Wireless".
