    Could someone please help me?

    I want to root my thunderbolt & upgrade it to GB & sense 3.0. Does anybody have any "one click root" methods or easy rooting methods that I can turn to, as I'm not a brainiac at rooting.

    I have a friend that can help me with rooting, but I don't see everyday. So If somebody can help I would be great!

    Thanks!

    The most reliable method is the manual method, if you are using it and need help then it is easy to help you with. If you use one of the "easy root" scripts and something goes wrong it will be more difficult to assist you ;)

    While the manual method seems like a lot it really isn't once you get ADB set up all you do is copy paste and wait

    I followed this ‪How to Root: HTC Thunderbolt One Click App‬‏ - YouTube.
    It worked well,but I knew what it was doing every step of the way. I had previously used adb with my Dinc.
    The main thing is to understand what your doing and how you are doing it.
    Read and try to understand as much as possible. That keeps the anxiety lower while the long slow process is happening.:)

    Understanding ADB and being able to follow along is one thing but for new rooters I would still suggest the manual method learning some ADB is always a good thing
