    Sorry took so long but really wanted to get this right and find out what was causing some issues. This should fix the airplane mode issue & wifi tether issue users were having. As for other issue that were brought up, I could not replicate the issues and found no issues in this update either.

    If you flash it, let me know how it is...l

    ***Updated the 3.3B Rom to 3.4*** Faster & smoother as well as some under the hood tweaks***

    If any one needs the latest OTA rooted, here are my links if it helps..

    WIFI Tether info

    Tethering seems to be an issue with this rom and is hit or miss with each phone. I have no problem tethering and i am using the newest version here --> http://code.google.com/p/android-wifi-tether/

    Also make sure in the settings you have selected the thunderbolt profile and check the boxes for wifi driver reload, routing fix & disable wake lock.

    Setup method should also be set to auto

    I have already flashed the radios. Should I flash the rom like I normally would?

    Yes this would be like any other rom :D

    I'll be honest, I am a little confused as to how this updates the bolt. Wouldn't flashing a new rom undo whatever the stock rom updates?

    if you are rooted, you cant use the stock ruu or the OTA being sent out by verizon, it will unroot your phone and right now will block any attempt to reroot.

    This is the same update going out by verizon, just redone so it can be applied to rooted phones.

    The rooted only version is identical to the OTA and the debloated, deoxeded, ziplign version is rooted, with most bloatware & verizon apps removed(this gives you more phone memory) as well as it optimized to use the phones ram better and this version is able to be fully themed including app icons..

    Ok, but when I flash my backup it goes back to my previous version. Do I have to wait for a Dev to make a new rom with this update or did I do something wrong? After flashing the debloated ROM, I cleared all data, cache, and davlik (sp.) and reloaded my backup so i didn't have to flash a new rom. Should I have flashed the new rom and not my back up?

    The linked files are a Rom lol. So essentially you flashed your backup over it.
    It's just like flashing a bamf Rom over a eternity Rom.

    So if I do this update here will I lose all my current settings and apps?

    or would this be just like doing the ota update?

    I am new to rooting.

    I am running a thunderbolt with gingerbread 2.3.4 (2.11.605.3) rooted using the revolutionary method.

    thank you,

    I posted this in another thread, but no one seems to be responding, maybe i'll get a bite in this thread:

    i installed the new rooted update and radio linked in the first post above, and did the partition cache and dalvik cache wipe, but when i go in to settings/update it's still asking me if i want to install the deferred update. but in my software info, it's showing the new .9 version. anyone have any thoughts on how i can get rid of the deferred verizon update?

    Also, after updating to the rooted .9 update, when i start OpenGarden to do wifi tethering, it tells me my S U binary is outdated. is anyone else getting that?

    If you are running the stock gingerbread as you stated above and you already have your phone setup, you can just flash this over your current setup and you shouldn't lose anything as long as you dont pick data wipe. The rom linked above will not wipe data

    You dont have to partition the sd car.

    If you havent wiped data, the memory to do the update is still there, so its going to ask you since this is a rooted version of the ota. Also open garden is looking for the newest superuser binary.

    Make sure you have the newest superuser installed, then go into settings and look for the update setting and update thie binary if it is still needed.

    So you're saying i will need to wipe data?

    I tried that yesterday and it kept telling me the update failed. but today it seems to have worked just fine. Thanks Jrocker!

    You are my hero!!!

    A few days back when Verizon posted this OTA update it put me in a forced reboot loop trying to install the update over and over. I found an article that had me wipe my cached from CWM and that seemed to work, but ever since when I reboot my phone it would try and apply the 605.9 update automatically. It was killing me to reboot into recovery mode and wipe the cache every darn day.

    I installed the big 410MB rom from the link above and it appears to be working fine. The system info page brings back the correct version of software 605.9 instead of 605.5 and now the OTA update is showing no new softwares.

    I only have ONE question. When I boot into CWM and try and install the 25MB radios ZIP it says INSTALLING UPDATE, and immediately jumps to INSTALLATION ABORTED. Do I not need the radios ZIP if I install the big ROM update?

    get root explore from the market. then open it and llok for a folder called cache. In there will be a folder called fumo, and in fumo might be the ota update file, delete it. then go to the folder etc/security and rename the otacerts.zip file to otacerts.zip.bak

    You have to install the radio file in the HBoot menu not recovery.

    Rename the file too PG05IMG (make sure it is still a zip file)

    Then place it on your sd card(not in any folder). Power off phone, then hold power & vol down together for a few secongs and it will boot to a white HBoot screen and in about 3 seconds will find the radio zip file and install it

    Got it!!! I know exactly what you're referring to. Like flashing the stock un-rooted ROM back. I'll give it a shot. Thanks again so much for the info.

    This radio zip definitely didn't work for me. As per another thread, I checked to make sure the file was named properly, and also that my sd card was FAT32 or whatever. When I went into the revolutionary boot loader or whatever, it said there was an incorrect image. Please advise.

    Also, just to be sure, I want to flash your debloated rom, I've never flashed a rom before, will I have to wipe all my data and cache and such before? I think I read no, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    If you are stock rooted, you dont have to wipe data. if your on any other rom yes you do...I suggest clear cache though

    The radio file is fine, are u in recovery or HBoot screen, revolutionary is recovery.

    Rename the file to PG05IMG <-- thats a zero not an oh (make sure it is still a zip file) make sure its not ending in zip.zip should just be PG05IMG.zip

    Then place it on your sd card(not in any folder). Power off phone, then hold power & vol down together for a few seconds and it will boot to a white HBoot screen and in about 3 seconds will find the radio zip file and install it

    LOL, I was kind of expecting it. I have been posting my stock rom files over at my site for a while but noticed alot of people asking for it at other places so I figured I would put them out there..

    As long as everyone is happy...Its all good..

    thank you for getting back to me i just have a couple more questions.

    does this apply to the debloated version as well? Meaning i dont have to do a data wipe?

    do i need to do the radio flash?

    and should i wipe the delvik cache and partion cache?

    Worked like a charm. Wiped both caches for good measure, flashed the rom, then updated the radios. Done.
