    I haven't decided if I want to root yet, my main motivation last time was because my droid will slow, but this bad boy right here is much faster than my rooted droid.

    Victory!!!

    Done and done. Rooted the new TB on day 1!!! I tried using the method in the video I linked earlier, but I kept running into road blocks. The links shown in the video were not coming up, so I found this method.

    [Procedure] How to Root the Thunderbolt with ADB (Windows) - Android Forums

    It is very descriptive and very do-able. It does take some time and I had to reboot my TB a few times and redownload the PG05IMG files a few times, but it is done. I downloaded superuser from market and tested it with Shootme just like the link says to do.

    I'm going to start researching ROMs and how to load them tomorrow. Sounds like the BAMF is the most popular.

    One thing I have noticed is before I rooted I had a strong 2 bars 4gLTE signal strength. (my house has always had weak reception), and now its only at 1 bar? Is there something else I need to do to increase that to at least as good as it was stock? I've been considering installing a repeater here at the house, but was unsure of the 4gLTE band. Looks like they have them out now, at a premium price too!

    Anyway. Your input about my signal strength and installing custom ROMs is greatly appreciated!
    Thanks!!!

    I'm running the Das BAMF remix Rom and battery life is greatly improved. Very stable also, but I was stable stock, for the 3 hours that I was stock anyway. Not a single random reboot so far. Also runs much quicker and smoother! Thumbs up to the BAMF team!

    Another very sweet rom out there for the thunderbolt is Gingeritis ver. 1 beta IX. Runs very smooth, lots of great little tweaks. Overall very cool rom.
