Default [SCRIPT] Windows One Click Root Method [3/26/11]

HTC Thunderbolt Windows One Click Root
This is a simple batch file that will guide you in rooting your device.
It is pretty easy to follow along but please take your time and read everything. It has only been tested a few times so please report any errors or issues you find.
Huge thanks to NetForce-TX on IRC for testing along with helping, I owe you!
Also thanks to Jcase for guidance
TeamAndIRC and Captainkrtek (Me) are NOT responsible for any bricks, fires, or damaged/broken hardware due to this process

If you wish to read the batch files contents either open it with notepad or check the pastebin

Instructions are included in the file when running it along with where to get the necessary files.

Prerequisites:
  • Drivers Installed & Working
  • SDK Installed with ADB
  • Exploits.zip with contents extracted to your ADB dir
  • PG05IMG.zip
  • Downgrade RUU
  • A Thunderbolt running 605.6 or 605.9 Firmware
You can download the OneClickRoot here

I will update this from time to time if needed, If you have issues with the batch file please PM me on XDA or find me on irc.andirc.net #Thunderbolt.
I will not reply to your PM if you want me to help you root your phone!
UPDATE: If SU acts up (IE: Force closes) flash this via CWM

Thanks! It is pretty simple, only a few things you have to do manually (no possible workaround) such as flashing from the bootloader.

Yeah exactly, just debug and charging, until you have to copy over the roms then you will set the USB mode to mount SD

Yes you can, but I reccomend unrooting whatever you have done so far using this http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1009423
