    We have perm root, release tomorrow.


    We have write to /system on two production devices, from from the store. We do not have a working recovery yet, no release will be done until then.


    A kind soul with a release Thunderbolt dropped by AndIRC tonight. Jamezelle and I were able to confirm Temp Root still works. I will be posting directions for it (nothing special, likely many ways to be done) tomorrow.

    We did not have a chance to finish perm root testing before he had to hit the sack (can't blame him, its late). Hopefully we can get it tomorrow.

    I'm super pumped for perm root. I can wait for custom roms, but this bloatware needs to GO.

    bloatware needs to go, so i will wait patiently on someone posting rooting for dummies..on this site so I can get rid of the crap that came with the phone that I will never ever use...

    I've had a Droid X but bought the Thunderbolt today and gave the Droid X to my spouse....which was super-easy to root and I got rid off all the bloatware, but the Thunderbolt is chock-full of that stuff, which I will never use. I hope that there'll be a one-click root solution out soon, because all of that stuff is running in the background....got the phone at 9:15 this morning and had to recharge it twice already, and I know it's partially because of the stuff running in the background, besides some other tweaks.

    Do you think it will be like z4 root so you can one touch root and one touch unroot?

    After the perm root, CM7 will make this phone one of the best out there. So glad I jumped on board.

    So the OS firmware that the phone was release with can't be rooted, it has to be downgraded, so is the firmware that's rooted a older firmware?

    I'm in a little debate. Should I root my TB? I don't have a lot of experience doing this. I mean I did root my Xoom but that was the very first thing I have ever rooted and the first time I had ever used adb. Is it safe to try? Is it worth it right now or should I wait until a much cleaner root is available?

    Probably gonna pass on the rooting for now since I don't want to downgrade to the older firmware, as required by this particular root method

    Once we get S-off and recovery, however, I'm all game

    this is my first droid and I'm totally clueless about rooting. How difficult is it to do?
