    Default Is it possible to undo update?

    Thunderbolt is useless after updating the other day. When it's not shutting it's self off or rebooting, it sucks the battery dead in half the amount of time it did before and I make and receive a lot of phone calls. Is there a way to restore it to the previous version like I could do with my Blackberry? Otherwise, this phone is as useless as an iPhone to me. Very disappointed with my Android experience so far.

    Mine has rebooted 4 times and shut down completely twice since the update.

    I really really want to undo the update and go back to the old version before the OTA.

    I can now trigger a reboot and its definitely tied to the cell radio. If I listen to Pandora streaming music via WiFi......no problem. If I turn off WiFi and have Pandora use the cell radio, it will reboot within 2 minutes.

    To root it I have to basically start over and redo all my settings and redownload all my apps and config each one correct? Thats a lot of work. I'll just use Pandora over Wifi only and baby the phone until they either come out with a fix or the ability to rollback the update.

    So, I take it that once you update, you can't go back. That is pretty f'ed up. Apparently the only solution to the problems with the Thunderbolt is to put it in the trash and go back to Blackberry.

    what about resetting the phone to factory default? Im skeptic and think it will still keep the new update.

    I did a factory reset and I don't have the update anymore. It gave me problems while browsing, it kept restarting on me without any error or force closed messages.

    Actually I can't confirm at this time of the software version. However after the factory reset my browser doesn't close and restart. Id look up the version numbers now but I'm out at a birthday party.

    This does not work this way as I mentioned in other post you started.

    This OS interesting. I don't reboot; I just shut down once or twice daily. And I just streamed Pandora over 3g just fine for an hour.
