    KK So I am still sitting on step 2. It seems like forever. Here is what I see so far.

    I got the ERROR! Contact XDA
    then it says if you are seeing this before hash you are fine. Gives me instructions and then
    Please wait for this program to tell you when it is finished with so far 13 lines of "."

    Do I just need to be patient? My phone has still not rebooted into the bootloader on the step 2 portion. It seems like it has been 15 minutes.

    btw the Step 2 button is still 'greyed' out and the "." keeps going so I don't want to touch it.


    Nevermind. I killed off the rooter.exe and reran step 2. Everything is moving as it should be. I found a ton of answers on the original posters page. All 174 pages of it. My eyes are bleeding. lol

    That's a given .. if you don't know that you shouldn't even be touching a root file ..

    No not everyone does but u have to look up what root is in the first place .. and when u look up the meaning of it it explains it there .. the chances of someone coming across this thread. Never knowing what rooting is and thinking well I'll just try to do what they are saying to do in here is non existent.

    ok guys. I just got my thunderbolt today. i tried to root. I installed htc sync and all that good stuff. I tried step 1 the first time, my phone rebooted, checked, and loaded the image than came back saying update failed. Also said something about the firmware version. So i had to manually reboot my phone. everything is still the same.
    I noticed that the rooter.exe i was using was 1.6.3.11, so i got version 1.6.3.2 and ran step 1 two more times, but it will not reboot my phone.
    I read about this step bricking your phone so i am hesistant to keep trying.
    Any suggestions?
    my phones build number is 1.12.605.6 CL338893 release-keys
    software number is 1.12.605.6

    i just upgraded from a droid 1 that i had for the last year. I had that rooted almost right out of the box.

    I just closed rooted.exe and pushed step one again. I think it was the 3rd time doing so that my phone finally rebooted. Also it may help to disable and re-enable usb debugging.
    Not really a fix, just keep restarting rooter.

    Never rooted before

    I have never rooted before or even owned any smart phone before but I want to try this out so I can hopefully get my battery life to increase and finally get rid of all the bloat wear on my phone. I think I can accomplish it but I was wondering if there is anyone who would be willing to help me out with it. I could give them access to my computer via Logmein free or something like that. I work tech support for computers but this is my first encounter with any sort of smart phone. So i would really appreciate any help someone would be willing to give me.

    Also, my windows is 64 bit so will this root work on that OS or is there a seperate download for the proper files needed?
