    Default Convert a Thunderbolt to an iPod

    Gang -

    Should I happen to get a tbolt on the cheap, is/are there any roms that effectively remove the phone portion from the device?

    It would make a great mini tablet for my daughter. Given the fact that I hear so many rumors that the tbolt is pretty much left for dead.

    But mine is SO happy!

    to start with the thunderbolt has not be left to die.

    as for your question there is no rom that will do this but a very simple solution root the phone use rootexplore to delete phone.apk. and superuser.apk. so your daughter will have no root ability to mess anything up and the phone will just force close when pressed.

    Why not just buy your daughter a viewsonic gtablet, cheaper than a used tbolt, prerooted on ebay running cm7. I bought mine New and rooted and put cm7 on it and its a great tablet. Amazing. 10" NVIDIA tablet. Cheaper than tbolt, and no phone capabilities. Just WiFi.

    The Samsung Galaxy Players might be a good option. WiFi only, pretty good front and rear cameras, and Android Market.
