HTC ThunderBolt bootloader

If you've gotta have the latest unofficial ROM for your new HTC ThunderBolt, you're in luck this morning. An RUU has leaked out of one of those places RUUs tend to leaked out of (don't ask, you don't wanna know), stripped down and put back together again. And the list of known features is interesting enough.

  • New radio, version 1.16.00.402
  • Fixes to SQLite
  • GPS Location Services
  • LTE/3G handoff (huzzah!)
  • Audio recording
  • Video playback
  • Proximity sensor drain

Those are some fixes we'd certainly like to see. For those of you who know your way around a rooted ThunderBolt (you'll need S-off), head on over to the source link to check it out. For everyone else, let's hope that this shows up in an officially sanctioned update right quick.

Already running.. better microphone but still soft..

How's the GPS? I've noticed it seems to take a while to lock in. Is that what this update will be fixing?

(I'm a new android user, but advanced PC user.)

What is the proximity sensor drain?

aydin96 says:

I think I know what this is... I have been seeing a dim red blinking light; next to the notification light. It is so dim that you have to be in a very dark room to see it... But it is constantly on. I couldn't find anything in forums, etc...

I wonder how much of a battery improvement this will have on the phone...

When I rooted my thunderbolt was sense suppose to come off and look like stock android because if so it didn't

miller7796 says:

Only if you did something to remove Sense, such as a custom rom.
