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

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

ok so after i choose my path where my android sdk platform tools folder is i get

Pushing files via ADB...
This process may take some time, if it takes longer than 30 seconds
Make sure the drivers are install and USB debugging is on.
cannot stat 'psneuter': No such file or directory
cannot stat 'busybox': No such file or directory
cannot stat 'misc.img': No such file or directory
Unable to chmod /data/local/psneuter: No such file or directory
Unable to chmod /data/local/busybox: No such file or directory

so what did i do wrong? i get my serial number when i get type adb devices....

You need to put the contents of exploits.zip in the same directory ADB is in

ok what in that zip needs to go where?
take everything that is in exploits.zip and move it to your android sdk directory specifically the location of adb.exe (will either be in platform-tools or tools) as for the two RUUs, they can be anywhere but you will have to move them at one point to your SD card. That is about it
