    I thought exactly the same about the dual core processor, but looks like moto forgot to pair it with more ram and better software that cooperates, just the mix of everything doesnt let it all run as it could. they messed up but looks like my next phone will be the thunderbolt. May cant come soon enough

    Newbie alert:

    Question: Don't you have to have root access to load UD on thunderbolt? If yes, then, are there root methods for Thunderbolt?

    Yes they already do. I was just reading in the thunderbolt forums that at XDA they have already rooted a pre-production tbolt.

    yes you need root because you will have to install a custom bootloader in order to install the new rom. And currently there probably isnt any instructions on how to root yet, but Im sure within a day of the release, everyone will know how to root it :)

    Edit: looks like there is a way to root it already!! ^ sweet

    Incorporating aosp features into a sense rom would be quite tough. Though done before ,they take forever to work on. Trying to keep up with that, ud and a stock rom would be tough for even the best of developers.

    There will be great sense roms out there, no doubt about it. I say stick with aosp unless you want to commit only to a sense rom since getting features added would take up a lot of time.

    The thunderbolt is a waste since the Bionic is coming out QT2 (summer) of this year. That's the phone I am getting!

    Sorry you feel that way. The thunderbolt will be a great phone for whoever gets it. The Bionic will be too. Both for many different reasons.

    I love online community's like this one.

    Here I am debating about what phone to get next. The Droid Bionic is very high on my list, but that damned bootloader is a killer for me. Then I was thinking, maybe the LG Revolution or whatever dual core device they bring to the table. I could also go the route of Samsung whenever they release a dual-core phone.

    Then I come across this post and now I'm seriously thinking about the HTC Thunderbolt. How crazy is it that a group of developers I've never met or really spoke to are giving me a serious thought on a phone.

    I really appreciate everything the devs do around here. This ROM has been my go to for about 7 months now and the availability of this ROM is a pretty big factor in my next purchase. Beers coming your way on my next check. :)

    Yep, I noticed that earlier. UD on the TB sounds good to me. Thanks for helping me make my decision.

    Although, if the rumored Droid X2 or Droid 3 comes with vanilla android and an unlocked bootloader (which has been discussed as a possibility for one of them), I might change my mind. I don't necessarily need 4G. Good thing I have four available upgrades! :icon_ banana:

    Its a tablet, every other one is unlocked. For the price they had to lol. Otherwise no one would waste that much $$$$

    Atrix is locked down hard, bionic will be also. if atrix is locked, bionic will be too. Marketing scam so u spend a ton of $$$ to get a xoom.

    It snot a waste if you do some research. already head to head tbolt comes out faster and better pretty much. Bionic has lots of lag if you watch videos of it. no extra apps installed and its noticeably laggy. tbolt with apps and sense widgets on homescreens runs smooottthhhhhh!

    The phone your getting will be one with very lil dev support. not many want to bother with moto anymore. bc they wont unlock phone bootloaders, they proved it with the atrix already. bionic will be the same way.
