We’ve reported a lot on XDA, and cyanogen mod. The rooting community is part of the Android ecosystem. Typically the headline comes with a “That didn’t take long” as sometimes it’s only taken a few hours of a device to be commercially available, like the Nexus S was rooted before the end of the first day. Yesterday it was reported on XDA that the HTC Thunderbolt had been rooted.
As you know XDA is a collective group and community that takes their work very seriously all the while helping each other get the latest devices rooted and the latest mods and kernels developed. The thread on XDA was posted by user “jcase” who clearly credited Jamzelle, TheEndGame7, koush and andrew8806
They used a pre-release version of the device the HTC Mecha however they seem confident the same method will apply and don’t even go looking for the method yet as it won’t be released until it’s verified on an actual production model.
