This is my easy-rooter for the Thunderbolt. I do not personally have a thunderbolt but I have tested it and fixed as many problems as I could. As far as I'm aware this will only work with firmware versions lower than version 1.12.605.9.
If adb does not see your device try installing the htc sync drivers. If that doesn't wok install If it still does not register please post here. If you have a 64-bit version of windows replace the files in the rar with these

THIS IS A WINDOWS-ONLY PROGRAM. You must have windows or a windows VM to use this.

As always there is a small chance of bricking your phone.

DISCLAIMER: AndIRC is not affiliated with this program and by using it you agree that neither AndIRc nor myself is responsible for any damages caused by this program.

This provides all necessary files and gives you in-program instructions.

Please read this before using this.

Known bugs:
  • Sometimes you need to redo step 3. If the phone does not reboot on its own simply press the step 3 button again.

  • The files take a long time to push. It could be anywhere from 3-10 minutes.
  • Once you have completed step one do not redo it for any reason! If it flashes only continue from step 2!

Team AndIRC - for developing the root method found here
XDA - for giving me the chance to make programs like this
me - for making it

Please donate to charity first and myself only if you want to. Please make donations in AndIRC's name as well as your own. You can donate here, to the Japan Relief Fund, or any other worthy charity.

since I just saw jcase's thing about my donation link (apparently I'm blind) here it is for those of you who wish to donate to me.



For those of you who can't follow or understand the directions in the program here is a pdf with instructions.

For anyone having problems getting steps 1 and 2 to work the first time through here's something to try.

Your method worked for me - one thing I found. It was hanging at step 1 like some folks have reported, pushing the files (could see .ZIP on SD card), but would fail to reboot. This happened several times with Fast Boot enable under Settings>Applications. When I unchecked Fast Boot and re-ran Step 1 it worked first try. Couldn't tell you why or if just coincidence, but might help others.


For those of you who are interested in how this method works, here's the explanation. I will be focusing on what the program does,not user interaction so much except where necessary.

Push busybox, psneuter,and misc.img to /data/local/
Push to /sdcard and rename to
chmod psneuter and busybox
execute psneuter
check the md5 hash of misc.img
flash misc.img to /dev/block/mmcblk0p17 if the hash is c88dd947eb3b36eec90503a3525ae0de
reboot into the bootloader
press power to enter bootloader and flash (done by user)
once back in android:
push busybox, psneuter, and wpthis to /data/local
chmod all 3 files
run psneuter
run wpthis
push the engineering hboot(hbooteng.nb0) to /data/local/
check the md5 of the hboot file (it should be 6991368ee2deaf182048a3ed9d3c0fcb)
if it is flash hbooteng.nb0 to /dev/block/mmcblk0p18
push the file to /sdcard
reboot into the bootloader
again press power and flash (done by user)
push su, busybox, and psneuter to /data/local
chmod psneuter and busybox
run psneuter
mount /system as read/write (rw)
copy su to /system/xbin/su
chown and chmod su
install superuser and RomManager

I do recommend learning ADB as it is quite helpful but I realize that for some people that is a daunting task at first glance. I remember being a n00b and this will allow you to fully utilize your phone while still learning at your own pace on the side.

I am attaching just the updated exe.

Great idea showing what happens. Cool that you put something together for TBOLT owners, I just hope people will try and figure out what is going on when they use this.

After seeing a lot of issues people having with setting up adb I guess I should share this link... ADB For Dummies by AndroidSamurai

Even has an app to set everything up in the right spot.

This is a great thread on altering the android_winusb.inf for compatibility with Thunderbolt (adb driver).

You're welcome, and if the program functions properly you shouldn't need to setup adb beforehand as it comes with the necessary files for interaction. If it doesn't work properly try the debugging steps I posted in the OP and if that doesn't work setting up adb as a system command (adding the tools folder to PATH) should fix things.

Hey guys, I didn't think about it when I created the thread but I want to have a bit of a poll here. If it works post here letting us know, and I'm fairly certain if there's a problem I'll hear about it so I don't think I need to say anything about posting them
