    Yeah.. I saw that earlier this morning. How would you compare it to 7.1.1 by Slayher?

    They're both good, ThunderShed is quite a bit newer and has all of the recent CM updates. Plus the ICS animations are pretty sweet.

    I can't find a single fault with it, which is something I can't say about any other AOSP ROM.

    Im not into Facebook so I have no idea if this would work, but you could set the LED to force on when a Facebook notification comes through?

    the facebook app isnt giving me the notifications so i doubt changing the LED would do anything. like i said, its not a big deal. just something i noticed

    I want to try this rom out when I get a chance, I will report back with any issues if any arise, from what I have seen it looks pretty good.

    Well lbrick, I flashed the new version of Thundershed. It still doesn't impress me as much as Shift ic3. I see absolutely no difference in performance as far as speed and smoothness, but overall it just doesn't seem as polished. For instance, I like to turn off the lockscreen and use widgetlocker exclusively. Well, when I do that everytime I reboot the status bar foreclosed. No big deal, just hit forceclose and it reloads(EDIT: Except for the time that it didn't reload after I wrote this and I had to reboot). Then I pulled down the notification bar once and there was a notification there. Except there was no notification in the status bar nor had anything happened to generate a notification. It promptly disappeared without me touching it. I ran quadrant just for comparison purposes. Same scores, but sometimes the test wouldn't run right on Thundershed. The graphics would clip sometimes, and parts of the test were shortened or lengthened sometimes. It skipped one of the test screens one time. It's little things like this that make me lose confidence in Shed. Just doesn't seem finished like the older Shift.

    I'd love to hear your take on Shift sometime, though.

    I was on shift ics 3.2 and it completely blacked out screen. I liked that rom too. Quick and snappy (though now that I don't have them, the soft keys at the bottom were annoying)

    Oh, those sofbuttons were just part of the ics launcher that came with the rom. That launcher had all kinds of bugs. It also came with ADW which has no soft buttons. I use ADW EX, fastest launcher around.

    I didn't mind them when I was on that rom but now that I don't have them I notice the extra space I have.

    Back to thundershed, it's laggy for me as of recently. And seems like everything is force closing now

    Edit: cleared cache and dalvik and seems to be OK... For now

    Yeah I have it saved, just haven't taken to time to flash it and set it up yet.

    The lockscreen thing is something every AOSP ROM I've ever ran has had an issue with. So I just leave the stock one enabled, and let Widgetlocker override it. Although since CM7 has a decent lockscreen I've started using that in place of Widgetlocker.

    The status bar seems a little strange. I have the center clock mod running and the Team miui style battery bar all running and haven't had any issues with it, and there's plenty goin on up there.. lol..

    Yeah, the status bar only happened with the lockscreen turned off. I did like some of Sheds animations better. Overall performance is dead on with both roms, though.

    How long should it take to boot. I know it's longer the first time. I've rooted dozens of droids and some nexuses but this is my first thunderbolt for my g/f. I waited about 20 minutes. That long enough to consider it a boot loop? I'd think so. I pulled the battery and then just reverted back to a backup. How does wireless tether work? That's the only thing she cares about

    Im a little bit confused with CM7 for Thunderbolt. Is this only for the radio version .5? or will my rooted TBolt with .9 radio also be able to run the CM7 rom? From what I am understanding I can not use CM7 with the .9 radio(MR4). Can anybody confirm this? Also if this is true, what ROMs are out currently that support the .9 radio(MR4) ?

    Wipe data, Cache, Dalvik, Format system, Before flashing?

    If so, make sure you're clockwork recovery is up to date, 5+ or will not load. Seems the case with most of the new ROMs.

    If you did all that, I'd re-download and try again. Maybe a bad download?

    The MR4 radios work fine, as well as the Open Mobile leaked radios.

    So. I want to try this out, but I am still on CM7 7.1.1. What would be the step to get this up and running?
  22. angldvl81

    angldvl81 Android Expert

    Download ROM, backup current ROM, wipe phone, install ROM, set up ROM.

    make sure you make a backup of CM7 before you install, so you know you have a working rom to fall back on if installation doesnt work.

    How do I update this? I am using CWM v4.0.1.4 that I got from Revolutionary. This ROM loaded fine w/ this CWM release fyi.
  24. digdug1

    perhaps the easiest way would be to download rom manager from the play store errr the market lol

    If I'm not mistaken, I don't think the touch version has been officially released for the Thunderbolt yet. I haven't checked so I can't say for sure, but there was a beta version floating around a while back.

    Works just fine btw. I don't have ROM manager installed so I don't know if its been officially updated, but if you can find the touch version I'd go for it, its pretty sweet.

    Someone on Rootz put it into a PG05 file for easier installation. Ill see if I can find the thread..


    It was on XDA, here you go though. Flash just like a radio. Rename to PG05IMG.zip, put on root of SD and reboot to hboot.


    The thunderbolt is now officially supported, but it would need to be flashed via ADB.

HTC Thunderbolt Forum
