    Cool. Pretty much confirmed what I was saying. Good to hear the 17th is still on the table for BB. My local BB where I pre-ordered said "no" to the 14th and didn't think they would get them in until sometime between 2/20 and 2/28 (he was very reluctant to give me a specific date), but maybe they will show up sometime this week (fingers crossed). It's getting harder and harder to wait until 2/24 with all the leaks, pics, videos, and news lately, but I've already waited 4 months.

    cant wait for the TB..it's like my droid knows I'm looking at a new phone and is acting up on me...just randomly slow and laggy, which it never is normally..haven't had a single problem in 15 months, but I cant wait for the TB and for the devs on here, and especially XDA, to get crackin on a release unit.

    This was in the News thread:
    Hope the same or similar exploit can be used. I plan on getting this shortly.

    I have a rooted OG Droid now. I don't even know if I'll root my next phone...BUT if I do, I'd get something that has the option to fully root. So I'd definitely get the Thunderbolt since Moto is lame and locks their devices down...

    I have the Original Droid running Liquid's Gingerbread. It runs so well I haven't seen a compelling reason to upgrade so I haven't been paying attention. I really don't like being forced to run a user interface. I prefer naked Android.

    Assuming the production Thunderbolt is easily rooted, how soon would we see naked Gingerbread roms for it?

    I'm thinking about getting the TB, but am kind of skeptical about rooting it. What's the chance of a phone getting bricked wen you root it? Because if my TB gets bricked I'll have to go back to my LG Chocolate Touch and yeah... no thanks.

    it should be idiot proof like the droid 1... its very hard to brick a D1 as long as you take precautions and always always backup your files.. and it never hurts to make more than one backup and save it on your hard drive on your comp just incase

    i trust the future devs will make a detailed tutorial of how to root the thunderbolt... i believe as long as you follow directions and take things slow... it should be pretty simple and straight forward

    Well, the devs said it's a simple one button press, but if you do follow the directions exactly is there still any risk of bricking it?

    ARS, if its anything like the OG then you would have to be pretty retarded to brick it.
