Default SD Card needed to root ?

Are SD Cards really needed to root?I know that any thing other then downloading apps or music for the phone an SD card is needed.But rooting need a SD card?Reason I ask is because I was attempting to root my thunder bolt this evening and it told me that I needed an SD to move on any further.

you should be able to do it without an sd card,provided you use a recovery that allows flashing from internal storage.

what method are you following?

I was trying to use the one tool method.I downloaded the right program, installed it etc. But when I went to proceed with rooting it it tells me I need an SD card.

Ok so i've gotten a new micro sd card and it works.Some reason my old sd card that was in the phone is not registering on my phone.

I have gotten as far as inputting the code from the revolutionary web site. I get an error once but I do it again I can get pass it.Then It waits for the boot loader and I'm not sure what I need to go from there? Need help .. Thanks.
