HTC Thunderbolt All-In-One Toolkit for Everything

HTC devices have gotten a boost in ease-of-use recently with a number of all-in-one and S-Off toolkits. The point of these applications is to help make hacking the phone easier; providing one-click solutions for things such as rooting, unlocking the bootloader, flashing recoveries, and other processes that can pose occasional problems. While the validity of one-click technology has been debated before, it hasn’t stopped developers from releasing them and users from using them.

The HTC Thunderbolt is the latest in the HTC line up to get an all-in-one toolkit. Developed by XDA Senior Member trter10, the toolkit gives users many of the aforementioned solutions in a single click. The list of features include:

S-OFF and Root
Unroot
Flash CWM, CWM Touch, TWRP, or 4ext recovery
Boot menu: Reboot, Hot reboot, Reboot recovery, Reboot to fastboot, Reboot to hboot, Power off
Disable HTC OTA Updates
Run an ADB/Fastboot Command Prompt
Install Busybox

Some of the features are standard for this type of toolkit, such as flashing various recoveries and a boot menu. It’s always nice to be able to achieve S-Off and root in a one-click solution as well. One unique feature is the ability to turn off HTC updates. This will prevent your phone from updating its firmware, causing you to lose root.

For additional info, head over to the original thread.
