Minor HTC Thunderbolt Update 2.11.605.19 Released


A small HTC Thunderbolt update has been released as 2.11.605.19 ahead of an official push if anyone is interested in flashing it. This is a full RUU and can be used by everyone, not just rooted users. If you have unlocked your Tbolt using HTC’s bootloader tool, you will apparently have to relock before flashing this (that sounds fun).

The update again, is minor. It makes the phone a bit more stable, updates some bloatware, and includes a new radio. 

Download:  Thunderbolt_2.11.605.19_PG05IMG.zip


*I’m assuming this will wipe your phone being a full RUU and all, so be careful.

1.  After you download the file from above, rename it to “PG05IMG.zip” without the quotes of course.
2.  Drop the file on the root of your SD card.
3.  Turn phone off.
4.  Hold Volume Down + Power to boot into fastboot.
5.  One the file is detected, follow the onscreen prompts to flash the file.
6.  When it completes, your phone should reboot. Enjoy.

    Thanks Boss

    WARNING:  This will erase everything on your phone. I thought it would be like previous releases and keep all my data. I had to re-install all my apps and begin to try and figure out what my home screens looked like. Boo!

    Question:  If I root the phone, is there a backup solution that will back up everything? Including the home screen setup and settings for all my apps?

    Thank you, Tom

    NEW RADIO!!!! perhaps the Development community’s can use it to finish up and make their ICS build have a functioning radio?

  • Any roms based on it yet?

    Its good to see this phone hasn’t been given up on just yet.

  •  The only useful thing in this RUU are the radios. Lots of people are seeing increased speeds and better signal.

      Haha…nice. Yea pretty much…I have none of these issues so I’ll pass too.

      I’ll take the radio, but that’s it.  So I’ll just wait until our talented android community rips the radio out of the RUU package for a separate install.

  • so this is not a OTA update? and can i please get a freaking answer this time

    • Josh Groff

      It’s an RUU (rom update utility), you flash it from HBOOT. I’m assuming HTC will be pushing an OTA out soon as they usually do. They like providing zips before hand though. An RUU unlike an OTA will do a complete restore and flash the newest radio and kernel and what not. It’s like an OTA on steroids and can be used even from a soft bricked state (assuming you can boot into HBOOT.)

    My GNEX is feeling jealous.

      Yeah, I don’t really care about the update itself, but it would be nice if they would push it out so Sammy could start selling their pogo dock again.
