Official Gingerbread Update for the HTC Thunderbolt Leaked
I downloaded last night and the tb seems much better now. Battery seems to last a little longer and it just all around feels snappier. Makes it a little easier to wait it out for a few months to upgrade since I have an upgrade now but nothing out makes me want to jump and upgrade.
The title is kinda false. The RUU is not actually the OTA it is a leaked build they are still working on. Once of the rom devs actually got this back on 7/17 and waited a month to release it to the wild, he did put the radio out however.
@redraider1 are you rooted or did you install the RUU in hboot?
I can report the radio is solid, been using it since it was leaked about a month ago.
+1 I don't know anyone who has as many issues with this radio as the ones in the past
if it was the latest chingy leak it gave me random reboots
The 704 radio. Every leak has been Chingy's he is either a guy on the inside or is friends with one of them.
The link won't come up on my phone! Tells me the site has been moved to another link but can't get to it..... Grrrrr
Try the link in the OP here [RUU] [Leak] 2.07.605.0
It's coming up as "no input file specified" I'm going to have to do it on my desktop
@redraider1 are you rooted or did you install the RUU in hboot?[/QUOTE]
I installed in hboot. Hung awhile at first boot then I pulled the battery and rebooted and it worked fine. Been working great all day. Much better than froyo for sure.
Is this the same leaked build that Chingy leaked and used to create Gingeritis?? And also the build moat of the more recent roms are built off of? Just making sure this isn't something "new" I missed
This is the build chingy got around 7/17 he has been building roms with it since then. I don't know if other sense roms have been made with it and AOSP roms are not built from RUUs
This is mostly because you wiped your phone clean
dont hold your breath for this to be pushed to phones,IMO... its still somewhat laggy at times,and is not the smoothest or most fluid rom ive ever run. on top of that,the VM notification prollem is still there,as is the slow charge prollem.
as yeaha said,this is simply an official build,NOT the official OTA. its definately got some refining before its ready for prime time.
but at least you can root it now after youce accepted it and are bummed out it looks just like froyo
Not really since I restored everything that I had on my phone before the wipe right after using mybackup. So it isn't because I wiped the phone clean.
Were you able to restore app data and cache? If not it could be because you wiped your phone.
Yes it was just like it was before I updated my phone. All the texts and app data was the same.
Are you rooted? According to the market
Do you clean your cache often?
I haven't ran stock firmware in enough time that I wouldn't know if running this was any faster (not to mention I won't be flashing this)
No I am not rooted and I have only cleaned my cache about 3 times since I have had the phone(since launch day) It's been a few days and is still running much snappier than it was with froyo when I first got the phone. I mean if people don't believe me oh well it works for me and I know how my phone runs and performed before and after.
iiiiim not sure how you were able to app and system data without being rooted
irregardless,even if you restored all app and system data,you have still cleaned out your caches by flashing this,wich is why your phone is smoother. GB by default is smarter and better at killing off unneeded background apps and process. maybe a combination of freshing up your caches and such,and a more dramatic affect of GB vs froyo on your particular device.
this update didnt feel particularly smooth or fast to me,but it might be because ive become spoiled by AOSP
It has also been brought to my attention there are folders that are created within data/system/ folder on the root directory that store stuff like app useage, locations, ect... these do not appear to go away unless there is a factory reset so when you installed the leak these should have been cleaned up.
Well it's been on about a week now and still isn't showing the type of lag that I was experiencing on froyo. Of course AOSP is going to be smoother since it is stock and doesn't have all the bloat on it.
We aren't doubting your phone is snappier just think it has more to do with the wipe than the fact you are on a leaked update.
