    Bear with me.

    Dropped my HTC Thunderbolt about a month ago, and now from time to time, my screen jumps, shakes, and freezes. I assume it's caused by impact damage. I have the full insurance on it and want to unroot and restore to like new so I can take it back.

    This is my phone's software specs...


    HTC Sense version

    Software Number


    Kernel version
    chaos@bamf-dev #1
    Fri Nov 11 21:20:54 MST 2011

    Baseband version,

    Build number

    Browser version

    I have the phone completely backed up, and I want to proceed, but I'm not sure EXACTLY what steps to take. I'm not around here enough to know the lingo, but I can follow directions.

    What directions do I follow to unroot and to return my phone to factory default? Just point me in the right direction.

    When I get to the "fastboot devices" command, nothing happens. It's suppose to show my phone serial number?

    Once I return the phone to stock, won't the OTA updates take care of that?

    1. Reinstall 2.11.605.5 stock (no root). I got the file from Android Police. I had to rename the file as PG05IMG.zip and run it from the bootloader.

    2. Obtain S-OFF with Revolutionary after 2.11.605.5 has installed. Do not install clockworkmod or super user yet.

    3. Allow the 2.11.605.9 OTA to be installed. Let the phone do it's thing, the update took my phone awhile.

    4. Install Clockwork Recovery (again rename it as PG05IMG.zip and run it from the bootloader)

    5. Boot into bootloader again and select Recovery. Install superuser.

    6. Reboot and enjoy.

    If you rooted with revolutionary, you need to do the adb way. If you rooted the old-fashioned way, you can just flash an RUU.
