Re: Thunderbolt update
Disclaimer: None of these techniques worked for me, nut maybe you'll have better luck.

I understand that you would like to know how to get the latest update on your HTC Thunderbolt. The update is pushed out in waves and it’s possible it hasn’t been pushed to your phone yet. However, there are several steps that you can take to try to push the update through. The first thing would be to advance the date on your phone by increments of three.
1. Go to Settings> Accounts & Sync and disable background data.
2. Go to Settings> Date & Time and advance the month and year by 3 (Dec 2014)
3. Then go to Settings> System Updates to see if you can download the update.
Before you try this next method, be sure to enable background data. If you are still not having success, you can perform the Google check-in service. Open the dialer on your phone and type in *#*#2432546#*#*. The number should disappear and you will see a message in the notification bar saying ‘Checkin succeeded’. Try checking for updates once more. If the update is still not available, you may need to wait a little longer for the update to reach you.
Other people have had luck pulling their battery and SIM card for 5 minutes, putting them back in, and then checking for the OTA when you start up the phone.
Still other people have had luck changing their data connection to 1X and then trying to pull the OTA. Once it shows up on their phone, they switch back to 4G (or whatever you have) and download the update.
Like I said, none of these things worked for me, so I just followed the link posted above and did it myself. If you have any questions about how to upload the RUU to your phone, just ask. But hopefully one of these other methods works for you.
