    So yea, I just purchased a Thunderbolt a few days ago, wanted to to run stock, but increase efficiency, battery life is horrid on this thing. Anyways, I believe I have been tricked into thinking the official HTC bootloader unlock method allows one to do the things I want. If it does not, I have no clue as to how to go about cleaning up my phone as I don't have root access, the apps I want to use won't run. Any suggestions would be nice.

    Is there any way to relock the phone? I am not worried about warranty.

    Yes, assuming you are talking about the bootloader. You must be logged in at the HTC Dev site before this link will work.

    I'm sorry for posting all of these questions in a development forum but I am trying to understand all of this stuff. Why can't a phone be downgraded if the bootloader is unlocked? Wouldn't that make it easier?

    And I am re-locking it now.

    I have not a clue if this matters or not at this point, I am unable to root my phone, its bootloader is unlocked through the HTC tool on their Dev site, I am S-On, and have no root access. stumped. here is the link to the original rooting thread where I have a discussion, I hope to get something resolved.

    Quick question before I upgrade radio

    Hi folks,
    I am stock Rev. rooted. Verizon slyly downloaded the .9 update on my phone in the dark of the night but I was able to recover/reboot the phone. I then froze some things that prevented the phone from upgrading again and stopped the nagging to upgrade. Not a peep since.....

    Question is:
    Since I am rooted and running .5, can I simply download and install the new radio given my TBolt's current state?

    I read the thread but didn't see my question covered-if it was I apologize. Many thanks in advance.

    regards,
    Jeff

    I countered the same problem following till step 8 and the menu back to the beginning, never popped up anything about update press volume up. Tried a couple of times, only find my 4g LTE no longer works...

    Can someone please help? I have never rooted my phone nor unlocked ever.
