Thanks for the clarification. From my understanding, the devs are still working on JB so this link made me wonder if a rogue developer already tackled the JB Rom.

It's more of a process to root and s-off an ICS stock bolt than it was to do so on GB, but it's possible. You may have to create an account to view the guide, but I know it works.

Sites like that always obscure the facts to increase views. JB is being worked on by at least three developers, but, as has been in the past, getting data will take time due to the RIL on this phone.

I know you can pay to get it rooted at halfcab123.com its just a little pricey. Its what I used when I first rooted. I went back to stock twice after that and rooted myself those times. The ICS root isn't really too difficult but be patient and you can get it without paying.

Downgrade back to GB then use Revolutionary before the auto update. I have the update.zip on dropbox and will post the link once I am home if someone doesn't beat me to it.

Try that then use Revolutionary. Just google it for exact instructions.
Cheers!

Really??? Pay somebody? It's pretty easy man. First option, as pointed out by somebody previously, downgrade, root, etc; second option http://www.thunderboltforums.com/for...g-ics-ota.html Just pay attention to what you're doing and it won't take long (unless you're new to this) and you should be on your way.

Sorry just realized how old this was, my apologies.
