[Prerequisite to Rooting] Android SDK Installer - v3.0 for Windows
**Microsoft Windows ONLY*
This installer is for new people looking to root their HTC Thunderbolt (not sure on other HTC devices but should work.) I compiled an SDK installer that installs all the necessary files to the directory of your choice (default C:\sdk) to your PC. This installer also includes HTC Sync for the Drivers as well as Java if you do not already have Java installed.
So if you're new to Android and want the tools to root, this might be the place to start before making that big step.
**If you have problems with it installing, try right clicking and running as administrator
