    I am very advanced when it comes to computers, but I wanted to root my thunderbolt and this is just too confusing. By confusing I don't mean how to root your phone I mean just with all these different roms/kernels.

    Why does there have to be so many different roms/kernels out there. It is overwhelming. I have no idea which one to pick. I could spend hours or days trying to find the right one. Wouldn't it be better if the developer who makes their own custom rom makes their own custom kernel to work specifically for their rom and package them together?

    Or all the developers work on a single super rom/kernel and include what everyone likes then tweak that super rom/kernel to have different versions for peoples different likes?

    It seems this is just too disorganized and roms/kernels are thrown out at will. I appreciate what the developers do it is awesome but can't it be more user friendly or less confusing. I am not bashing anyone of trolling here, I am just wondering about what I said?

    Everything is pretty organized honestly. Just pick a Rom and go with it. That's the joy of open source....choices. and a lot of the devs have their own kernels they make with their roms... Just go with it and don't read so far into things, you won't know til you try

    you've been....THUNDASTRUCK!

    You are absolutely right I am jsut going to try one. I do have a question though. I never did this but I am assuming when you root your thunderbolt you will lose contacts, messages, etc... Should I back up everything or does it actually keep all that stuff. And my one other question is what is this MR2 radio thing everyone mentions. I am going to try out Das BAMF 3.0 Rom, what is the best kernel that works with it if anyone knows. Do I also need to download MR2 or MR2.5. Thanks everybody in advance.

    never mind I am not going to root my phone. too much crap to do. i been sitting here waiting for all the garbage files to download and its taking eternity. this is something i wanted to do now. i dont know how you all had the patience and I havent even been able to find a really good tutorial out there. everything has to be so obscure about it. the best one i found so far was from android police and it sucks

    Please watch the language this is a family friendly forum.

    As for a good link to root your Tbolt stop on by www.thunderboltforums.com we have plenty of info for you.

    Rooting is not always a quick process but I recomend going the long way the first time as you will learn tons about what's going phone.

    You have to start some where. :)

    waste of time. someone should just make a crap program to root it for you. it would be so much easier, so much quicker, less painless, and less stupid. i cant believe the process that you have to undergo in order to put on a custom rom onto your thunderbolt. especially when it has an open boot loader and people are allowed to do this. my 360 was easier to hack than the thunderbolt and that thing was on lock down. psp was so easy my 8 year old sister could have hacked it and it also was on lock down.

    Well if its too much of a problem to go through this then there's no point in whining about it. It's easy, there's videos on YouTube showing every single step to go through. One click roots weren't working for this phone its not like it wasn't thought about.
    If you want to root the mr2 radio is for gingerbread roms only. And if you plan on keeping this phone I highly suggest you root, if not, It's no loss to the rest of us.

    I will man up and admit that I was being incompitant about rooting. I built up the patience and rooted my thunderbolt and I am very pleased. It is awesome now. The process is still a little crazy and takes a good chunk of time though you have to admit. I used BAMF 3.0 RC4 Rom and just used the standard kernel that came built in with it. Is there a better kernel that will work with this Das BAMF 3.0 Rom. And also I am currently using MR2 and was wondering if the MR2.5 radio is any better. Thanks people.

    7/9 2:10 PM NOTE - EVERYONE PLEASE READ

    Over the past few weeks I have been contemplating about keeping the Thunderbolt or selling it. I haven't been fully happy with the device in all honesty and while I have the utmost respect for everything the developers have done to make the Thunderbolt usable in the end I have made the decision to sell it. Or in this case use Verizon's trade in program as its pretty guaranteed to how much I will get for my Thunderbolt. I will continue to update the listing until I can find an suitable person to take over. Thank you everyone on both XDA and Droid Forums for allowing me to run this listing. I am very honored and very proud of this listing and trust me whatever the next device I'll get rather if its the Droid Bionic, Samsung Galaxy S II, or whatever I already plan on doing an listing just like this for that device.

    Also to note since I know it will get asked here on DF - I don't know if whomever will take over will continue to updated it here on DF. While I would prefer to get someone who can if that person is unable to for whatever reason I will at least make sure an URL is posted in this thread linking to the XDA thread run by whomever takes over.
