Just To Be Clear:
Jamezelle did the work on phone, and it was rooted using known exploits.

*Most credit goes to the researchers that found and developed the exploits. We will name the exploits closer to release. *

Now I just need to get my thunderbolt.


ToDo:
Test on release thunderbolt
Fix recovery
Get one for myself

Thank TheEndGame7, jamezelle, koush, and andrew8806.

This phone was the official non production HTC Mecha (codename). It may vary from the one released (HTC Thunderbolt). Things to note:

*The phone in the pictures came with Ship S-OFF
*No temp root but perm root with recovery

However, us over at AndIRC are very confident the same methods will still apply but we are keeping that information confidential at this time. Definitely get excited but remember things can always change.

This has just raised the value of this device, I expect alot more people to want it now, after all that Incredible rooting last year that took almost 5 months especially.
I was already planning on getting a T-bolt, now all we need is a release date and when we can pre-order the phone.
and its the best for everyone to keep the info confidential until the phone is released that way we don't give up the method to root and they patch it before release. Great Job guys!
