I just got my replacement thunderbolt after being plagued with reboots after the update I decided against the OTA in favor of rooting and putting a ROM on it. I have installed the HTC sync software from their website and the phone is recognized when I switch it to sync. So I switch back to charge only with usb debugging enabled and fast boot switched off. Next I open up cmd prompt and type cd C:\sdk\platform-tools. Command prompt switched to platform-tools and start pasting commands from [ROOT] MR1/OTA PermRoot + Unlock Bootloader - Safer/Easier 5/12/2011 - xda-developers however when I get to adb shell it doesnt switch to $ Problem is, how do I know if ADB is connected to my device? I did get it to go all the way through the commands to step 4 once but under my computer it didnt show external drive so I couldnt drag the downgrade file onto sd card...then after I restarted my computer it showed up as an external device so I have the renamed file on the root of my SD but now no dice through the terminal. Every time I get to adb shell step it doesnt switch to $. What am I missing?
