I made this write-up on the sister Thunderbolt Forum. Thought it may be of some use to people here, too...
UNREVOKED-the 5 minutes or less ROOT without data loss!!!
I tried it last night and it worked great, although I do have a question...hopefully someone will see this and know the fix. I show Superuser running and installed SetCPU and it shows in my running apps. Here's the problem - when I start SetCPU, it didn't allow me to set it as Superuser. Then I installed Root Explorer, and some problem...wouldn't allow me to add it to the Superuser list...and when in Root Explorer, I could mount r/w, which means I can't move bloatware. I'm getting the feeling that using the Unrevoked method rooted the phone, but there's something funky on the Superuser program or the root process didn't completely root it.
Anyone have any thoughts on whether it could've gotten hung up somewhere?
Thanks in advance for any input!
I was able to add Root Explorer to the superuser list and could mount as r/w and r/o both. I was also able to add and set SetCPU as a superuser
Yeah, I did it two nights ago and it worked for me. However I should say that as soon as rooted, I immediately loaded the new gingeritis Rom so maybe that's why mine works

Thanks. I recall getting a message either when installing setCPU or a root explorer that I had a SU file loaded on my SD card. That's the residual from the Unrevoked proces. Did you delete the SU zip file from your SD card after rooting?
Are people actively using this? This thread seems to have low traffic for a simple root method. Just thought it was a little strange that no one has been posting "OMG OMG this works so well" considering it doesn't wipe your phone.
*update* It works great! I had a minor glitch with the superuser app, but it really is a simple root (that doesn't wipe your data).
