One Click Root Script for Thunderbolt

After a very nice discussion article regarding the pros and cons of One Click Root utilities, we figured it would be good timing to introduce a script created by XDA Moderator Captainkrtek (and tons of testing by NetForce-TX) to root the newly released HTC Thunderbolt. The script currently has a Windows version and it is, in essence, a batch type program that will guide you through the whole rooting process. The dev has made it simple enough to be rather fool proof, but still recommends to read a bit about it just in case something went wrong. There are a few pre-requisites before you can start playing with this tool, all of which have been listed by the dev in the thread. He is also working on a Linux version for all those Tux fanatics out there, so if you were feeling unloved for not running Windows, stay tuned.

The app has been tested and seems to work fine. However, any and all feedback is much very welcomed.

This is a simple batch file that will guide you in rooting your device.
It is pretty easy to follow along but please take your time and read everything. It has only been tested a few times so please report any errors or issues you find.
Huge thanks to NetForce-TX on IRC for testing along with helping, I owe you!

You can find more information in the application thread.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
