HTC Thunderbolt Easy Root App Released; Root’s Your Handset In Three Simple Steps
By on March 25th, 2011

Less than a week ago, we reported that the recently released HTC Thunderbolt has got root access, along with its first custom ROM.

The problem with the root method was that it was pretty complex and newbies could get easily confused. Now, an XDA member dbzfanatic has released an easyroot application for the Thunderbolt. The rooting app will only work with firmware version 1.12.605.9 or lower.

As of now, the application is available only for Windows based PCs. The application does have a few bugs, which should be hopefully sorted out soon. Users should keep in mind, that the one-click root app weighs in over 800MB!

The app will also take some time to root your phone since it has to push’ some heavy files to your phone’s memory card, which takes time. Thunderbolt owners can find more information about the Easyroot application from here.

Also, quite a few custom ROMs have popped up for the Thunderbolt including an un-official CM7 port and some custom kernels. Thunderbolt owners need to root their phone before flashing a custom ROM on their handset. Users can check out the various ROMs available for the Thunderbolt here.
