    A guy already tried z4 and it didn't work. I'm sure there will be a method released in a few days. Maybe sooner

    Now that it's out, I'm sure that we'll be seeing a root momentarily, likely within the next few days(3-4). The TBolt is so similar, software wise, to the Evo, Incredible and Desire that we should be enjoying all our Rommy goodness soon.

    Man! This sucks! I want root only so I can use Titanium Backup to restore all of my apps from my OG Droid!

    Cheers,

    Root is in the works but they won't release it until we can get it to unroot.

    Mine grabbed all the apps for me. Took it awhile, but no Titanium needed.

    I need root. This phone has craploads of crapware.

    It grabbed your apps but not the data that Titanium has. Like Angry Birds...it's now back to level 1.

    I've got an upgrade burning a hole in my pocket, but after test driving this thing bogged down with all the "craploads of crapware" - I left with my P.E. 5.0.2 OG Droid running @ 1100mhz still in my pocket. It was faster loading apps and going through the menus than the thunderbolt - just not as pretty:)

    Yeah I feel your pain. I miss launcher pro but I'm starting to get used to sense. Can't stand the default qwerty keyboard though.

    Launcher Pro works on the TB. I don't like the KB either! Actually, that's the ONLY thing I don't like about the phone! :)
