Code:
/* I am not responsible for bricked devices, dead SD cards,
 * thermonuclear war, or the end of the world. Please do some research
 * if you have any concerns about flashing a radio before flashing it!
 * YOU are choosing to make these modifications, and if you point the
 * finger at me for messing up your device, I will laugh at you. */

How to Flash:

In order for this to work, the HTC Thunderbolt needs to be S-OFF. Flashing the radio with a corrupt file or interrupting the flash, can brick the device, please proceed with caution.

  1. Download the your choice of radio for the HTC Thunderbolt.
  2. Make sure the filename is PG05IMG.zip exactly or it will not work and copy it to the same folder as adb (the /platform-tools folder within the Android SDK folder).
  3. Connect the HTC Thunderbolt to the computer via USB.
  4. On the computer, open terminal and run the following commands:
    Code:
    adb push PG05IMG.zip /sdcard/PG05IMG.zip
    adb shell md5sum /sdcard/PG05IMG.zip
    NOTE: The md5 should match up the provide the original download location. If not, redownload & try again.
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
  5. The HTC Thunderbolt will reboot & usually boot into fastboot. Pressing the Power button will put the device into the bootloader.
  6. The bootloader will scan for the radio update. Once it finds the update, select Yes.
  7. Allow the bootloader to finish flashing the updated radio, and reboot the HTC Thunderbolt normally.

Should my software number be 1.12.605.9? Or 1.13.605.7 like it says in the first post? I'm almost 99% sure I ran the pgm05 file through hboot. Please advise.

Radio is your regular radio & LTE is the LTE radio.....

Flashing the LTE radio does not affect the software version & flashing the radio changes the baseband version.

Any1 with gps issues on the latest release?

PLS HELP..

Please for those of you having gps issues, try this. It has worked for me and many others.

Goto the market and download GPS Status & Toolbox from the developer EclipSim. Run the app. Hit the menu softkey, then click on tools. Click manage a-gps state. Choose reset. Do the same procedure again but this time choose download (so menu soft key, tools, manage a-gps state, then choose download.)

Ok if the current radio I have causes me to have no 4G should I just flash an LTE radio? If so which one should I flash?

Thanks for this thread, I like having them as separate entities that way you can find the combination that works for you.

The software number is equivalent to the ROM build you're currently using.

1.13.605.7 is the base for the new custom ROMs built from the latest leaked RUU.

1.12.605.9 I do believe is the downgrade used for the rooting process? Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

And yes you also flash these radios through hboot as described or by simply putting the PG05IMG.zip of choice on the root of your SD card and booting into hboot.

I think I am bricked...

Checked the MD5SUM with the latest 2.01 radio... flashed in a S-OFF bootloader, the progress bar only goes 1/10th and it just says it's completed.

I can see the radio version in bootloader but the Baseband version is unknown and now... i have no radio.

Great.

Thanks for the information. Anyway I have revered back to the Froyo MR1 with Bootloader which flashed back old radio and now it works.

I'd assume that in order to use the new radio and LTE radio you have to be on GB? I think i'll wait till official release then.

From everything I've been reading that's what it looks like. Waiting to see what this does for CM7.

    No registration is required and I am not site pimping. I was simply tired of using Multiupload to get anything so I started using my own server.
