    The thunderbolt is my first droid based phone ever, and rooting it seems difficult. I'm willing to learn whatever is necessary, but I'm looking for the easiest method. I'm the programmer for my robotics team, but we use labView, so its totally different. Suggestions?

    You need to read, read and then read some more..this can brick your TB.
    with that said heres some info to get you started.

    [ROOT] PermRoot + Unlock Bootloader - Safer/Easier 4/21/2011 - xda-developers

    and a video that shows u how...watch it at least twice before starting.

    ADB + step 1
    steps 2-9

    I used this method and got it done without too much stress.

    these guys did a great job of putting these together.

    there are other methods that are here on the forum,but I'm not familiar w/them...maybe some of the others will put in there 2cents and let you know how they worked out.

    I used lab view. I finished civil engineering and I programmed robots also.

    This is easier to do lol
