    I expected root to happen fast but not this fast. Being able to root on release day?! Are you kidding me?! Absolutely awesome. Makes the wait that much harder and worth the wait at the same time. :cool:
  7. It has been out since last month but not to the general public. But most high end HTC device gets rooted within days its not via magic but its released to us months before as that has always been the case.

    What does it mean if the device is rooted? And what are the positives?

    they rooted, possibly, a prelaunch model, which may not be the same as the one you get day 1.

    Thank you, Buzz Killington.

    Yes, it is a pre-release model that was rooted, it may or may not be different than the release model, but this is a HUGE step either way.

    So why should one want the tbolt? Its just another single core 1ghz phone. How similar to the incredible or evo. What makes this one special.

    do you not bother to read the other threads?

    More RAM
    Better 1GHZ Snapdragon then any of the other 1 core phones
    4G LTE
  15. TB is using newer 2gen snapdragon SoC with AMD Z460 GPU and has 768mb ddr.

    And jay, dont be an ass, its just a question. maybe this is the first thread i read about it
  18. d3310n don't worry about it. But far as TB goes if you want it then get it as its the current CDMA flagship where DHD is GSM. If TB was GSM I would have gotten it in heartbeat as DHD/MT4G is sharing near same spec but DHD and TB is both 4.3" which I miss so dearly as some prick stole my HD2. You can't go wrong with TB the hardware is superior.

    i really was hoping that the tb would be dual core but since its not that is a deal breaker for me. I think i will go for the etna instead but i still have about a year and a half until my next upgrade :( well see whats around then hopefully these dual core phones will still be worthy in 1.5
  20. Well in that case you can wait for Opt 2x which has Tegra2 and using ULP gpu which is better than SGX540 in Hummingbird SoC's. If you wait for that then you will never get it but I will get dual core when HTC drops it thats when you know its serious biz :p I don't trust LG I mean come on you were out of the game and now drop a dual core phone you think you will get in it? LOL think not, HTC and Moto will take them out soon enough as HTC is already have dual core based SoC in application.

    TB is worth every peny the higher ram, screen, cam quality. Like I said man if this phone was GSM based I would have gotten it in heartbeat. HD2 was the best phone that came out in 2009 so I needed upgrade even when I had Leo1024 it was aging but hey its hackablity is not match by any phone. I could't get DHD as no 3G TMoUS support I couldn't get TB as its CDMA. So I had to sacrifice screen size as MT4G is sharing the hardware spec of DHD/TB.

    The TBolt has been tested against several dual-core devices and had much higher quadrant scores , around 1700. Check the youtube videos.
    You can take the current duel-core devices and the TBolt will blow you away.

    actually, I've seen a quadrant score of 2150, that was the max for the TB, but usually around 1850-1900

    This is great news. Now how about an "All Things Root" section?

    How do you feel dual core will be valuable within the next 20 months, d3310n? What would you be missing out on?

    Honest question here. Even my local vendor is advising I wait for the Bionic because it is dual core. Until it is supported by the systems and software is written for them, and the bugs are worked out, is it really that much of a deal breaker?

    Ah, a gamer. Personally, I buy a game console for games, not a phone.
