Thunderbolt Rooted!

For those of you who were hoping to get a rooted device by the time you picked up your brand new Thunderbolt from the store, your prayers have been heard. Thanks to XDA members jamezellejcase and a few other devs, inclu, the HTC Thunderbolt has been successfully perm rooted. Coincidentally, it got perm root on the day it was officially released, which is not really that much of a surprise as it was determined that temp root was fully achievable the day before. However, things are far from done as there is no custom recovery as of yet. But if the last 6 months have shown us something is that our devs work fast, so expect to be able to flash custom roms sometime very, very soon.

If you can contribute to the project, please provide some feedback or help for the devs. Happy rooting!

We have perm root.

We have write to /system on two production devices, from from the store. We do not have a working recovery yet, no release will be done until then.

You can find more information in the root thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
