Htc Thunderbolt Gets a Software Update to Fix the Random Reboot Issue
By on July 9th, 2011

HTC and Verizon have started rolling out a new software update for their first ever 4G LTE capable smartphone the Thunderbolt. No, this is not the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update, which Thunderbolt owners are expecting.

Instead, this OTA update is aimed at improving the 4G connectivity issues along with the random reboot issue, from which most of the Thunderbolt owners suffer. The OTA update carries the version number 1.70.605.0, and weighs in at 74MB.
