HTC Thunderbolt ‘Official’ Gingerbread RUU Leak

If you haven’t already heard, there has been a leak for the ‘Official’ HTC Thunderbolt that was leaked recently, that updates the phone to Gingerbread.

I’ve been using the update for close to a day now.

So far no random reboots, battery life has been vastly improved. Had a few issues with getting a data signal at the start, but after restarting a couple of times, it all seems to work fine – both 3G and 4G LTE.

Speed of this RUU is amazing. Everything loads much faster than it used to, Skype and Gtalk have video calling – both with the ability to use the front facing camera. It still has the Verizon apps and MyVerizon works as well on this build which is a plus.

Here are some of the issues I’m facing:
Market is not updating to the latest version – though I can just install it from here.

I had a hard time accessing TheMikMik.com to download the RUU – but there’s a mirror site now:

Ensure that the MD5 of the file is: e4c90364613e1a520d4313114604e4e8

After installing it, it might have some issues while booting up, remove the battery and restart the phone. Took me a couple of times before it started to work properly.

I assumed that with Gingerbread, there would be a whole new UI… I was wrong 😛 It’s 90% the same as Froyo, with some slight changes in the features…

But performance wise, it is much, MUCH better!

Hope you enjoy the update as much as I am 🙂
