    I am in Linux as my host, and I am not afraid of CLI as long as the instructions are well written. I would like to root my Thunderbolt tonight during the few hours I have free time. Where can I find a set of instructions that are 100% Linux compatible? Also, my second question is whether or not after I finish the rooting, will my phone essentially be using the same rom/build that comes stock, only rooted?

    Actually man, if you follow the windows instructions, they work fine. Just adapt the adb commands to your Linux distro. Make sure you do any file renaming in your file manager, not cli. It has a nasty habit of changing md5 sums.

    I actually did just that! 100% effective, not one hiccup!

    Ubuntu 10.10, 64-bit. Only thing I had problems with was that I forgot you had to start the adb server as root.

    LH, any chance you could post some instructions with some screenshots? I'm about where you are -- not afraid of CLI, but haven't done any sort of phone rooting / ADB before. Would LOVE some help with a tutorial. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04.

    Thanks!

    PM me (to remind me) tomorrow and I will try and find the instructions I used.

    I basically

    Followed these instructions verbatim:

    Updated (4/21/2011): [Exclusive] How To Root The HTC ThunderBolt And Unlock Its Bootloader | Android News, Reviews, Apps, Games, Phones, Tablets, Tips, Mods, Videos, Tutorials - Android Police

    However, I few things I knew but were not specified specifically:

    1) When starting the adb-server, it must be done as root (use sudo)
    2) Everytime you flash a new ROM, you must reenable Debugging (it's off by default of course, and a new ROM sets things to default for the most part).

    Take your time, do not rush it at all. I even went a step further and checked the MD5 hash of everything after I uploaded it to the phone. I did not have a single problem. Just read, take your time, and (after you download the files) you should be rooted within an hour.

    Besides reading, the most important thing you can do is dedicate an hour of SILENCE to this project, do not do it while conversing with others, others talking in the background, etc.
