    My much anticipated HTC Thunderbolt tool is HERE! :D

    This tool is your all-in-one toolbox for the HTC Thunderbolt.

    With it, you can:

    1. S-OFF and Root
    2. Unroot
    3. Flash CWM, CWM Touch, TWRP, or 4ext recovery
    4. Boot menu: Reboot, Hot reboot, Reboot recovery, Reboot to fastboot, Reboot to hboot, Power off
    5. Disable HTC OTA Updates
    6. Run an ADB/Fastboot Command Prompt
    7. Install Busybox





    Put ThunderboltTool.exe in its own folder, then run ThunderboltTool.exe, then run ThunderboltTool.bat. The .bat is what you will use from then on.



    Changelog can be found here: https://github.com/trter10/Thunderbolt-Tool/blob/master/CHANGELOG.txt


    Main Download: Goo.im Downloads - Downloading ThunderboltTool.exe

    MD5 is on download page.

    ENJOY! :)

    I am getting this error when I attempt to load the file:
    The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, an d then contact the software publisher.

    Is there a way to get a version that works with 64 bit operating systems? Thanks!

    I made it on a 64 bit PC so I'm not sure what's going on

    But, you can always use the old-fashioned zipfile method haha

    Just unzip it to a folder: Goo.im Downloads - Downloading ThunderboltTool.zip

    Ota update bootloop is all I can think of right now, but it will have more.

    when downloaded does this file stay on the computer or go to the Bolt sd card for usage? Already s off with revolutionary but sounds like a great addition to current files.:)

    With this tool can you unroot and install the OTA update and then reroot?

    You can, but I don't see what the point is. The ota has caused people more harm than good.
    But you could also just install the rooted ota rom

    Thanks, I just dislike the popups that come up every 1-2 days asking for update then failing. Is the rooted ota rom you speak of just an update file to apply? Or a fresh blank rom?

    I am currently on: 2.11.605.5 and I have been having some issues with random lose of 4g and restarts and had hoped the ota updates I have been missing for a while may have fixed some things. I will try out your tool later to see if it helps after unrooting and applying then rerooting.

    Also with the official ICS rom coming in 1-2 months from verizon I hoped to be able to stay on official and then reroot as I do like the stock roms but like root as well.

    The rooted ota is a full rom but you shouldn't need to wipe data.

    There is an ota stopper in extras to stop the pop ups also, but my rooter blocks otas in the process

    Thanks for the info, and thanks for making this handy tool.

    With Verizon ending unlimited data with upgrades I plan on being on the thunderbolt for as long as possible to maintain my Unlimited 4G and with work continuing to be done to improve the thunderbolt it makes me happy.

    Is this intended for those that are new to root or? I am rooted but just on CM7, yet I want to upgrade, does this help in anyway?

    I guess make it easier to switch up between ROMs? Ive been out of the TB root loop for a while...

    Curious Question. I already rooted using Revolutionary, does this act as a recovery? Would it be beneficial to use this instead of ClockWorkMod?
  24. trter10

    trter10 Active Member

    No this isn't a recovery

    This worked amazing on my new one from my damage/insurance replacement.
