HTC Thunderbolt Update to 2.11.605.19 Begins Rolling Out to Owners

The emails and tweets are flying in with HTC Thunderbolt owners saying that their devices are starting to see the 2.11.605.19 update prompt. The update itself isn’t major and appears to be focused on connectivity issues, plus has better VPN functionality and better handling of Yahoo Mail. Go get it, Bolt owners.

Cheers Stephen and Joe!

    Am I the only one who is having major connection issues after the update? I am not finding anything on Google. After the update, I constantly bounce between 3G and 1x, even though I live in a 4G area. When it is on 3G it just hangs and eventually goes to 1x. It has been there about 95% of the time. After doing a reset in Dec, I haven’t had any problems with my phone until the minute the update finished installing. Today I noticed that in the drop down window that my data connection is “off” even though it says 1x on the top bar. What the hell is going on? Why does HTC/Verizon insist on continually breaking my phone?

    Sucks my phone still Randomly reboots

    Avoid HTC if you want your devices to be updated to ICS. If I buy a phone today… will I STILL not be getting OS updates in 2014?

    I’m excited for the new Cisco AnyConnect vpn support… But where is it? I don’t see it in my VPN settings after the update. I see there’s an HTC AnyConnect app in the Play store but says it’s not compatible with the thunderbolt.

    • Barry Lees

      i’m having the same issue any ideas?

      • delerivm

        So far Thunderbolt is not on their compatibility list here: http://www.htcpro.com/enterprise/vpn

        I’m expecting that it should appear there soon, and then the app would become available in the Play store. I posted a question to HTC on that site to ask about it; no reply yet.

    Now that the update has come out, I’m guessing this gives that leaked roadmap of updates a little more credibility.

    My wife’s has been working well with several BAMF variants. Any other good recommendations?

    • Josh Groff

      My friend’s been running killasense, it seems to be pretty stable. I usually have to fix problems and haven’t had one complaint (besides battery life, but this it the TB.)

    • mcblue

      CM 7.1 It is simple stock gingerbread with CMs extra settings. It has everything you need in one.

      Thunderstick Full Blown, FTW, assuming you like Sense 3.0. Based on the MR4 football release. Solid.

      • Tyler Chappell

        I second this, I run full-blown and its one of the most stable ROMs I’ve used, great features and tweaks, and good performance and battery life (I have the extended battery)

    • Havoc70

      I have tried quite a few of them and always come back to BamF SoaB, works great.

    • Br_d

      I’ve been using SkyRaider for like, a really long time now. It has all the features I want, and no problems other than a call answer bug that was easily fixed with a build.prop change.

    • sk3litor

      Liquids 3.2 all the way baby. Throw on an ics theme and you can’t get much closer to the real thing. No flaws or glitches and fliiiieeeesssssss.

  • RBreitenstein

    does anyone else have front facing camera issues? (AKA the video chat camera) every time i click the button to switch to that it takes me back to the home screen… any help would be MUCH appreciated

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kegan-Miller/100001229795752 Kegan Miller

      reset your camera settings back up default. your welcome!

      • RBreitenstein

        I have tried this and even a factory data reset and they did nothing for it…

  • gtabman

    I want ice. I have jelly bean on my thunderbolt and galaxy tab 7 plus. Its the theme of course. I love jelly bean theme.

  • MrEnglish

    Good selling point for the tunda blow. It’s got the latest bloatware, you’ll love it. Update made no noticeable difference and while I updated GF’s phone, I couldn’t believe I actually carried that bloated beast before my Gnex. Hoorah. However, at least there IS an update and it’s not a forgotten phone, so for that, points.

  • gallery69

    People still own the Blunderbolt?

    • Nick

      It’s the best phone I’ve had and I’m fine with it until my upgrade in November. Rooted it is a beast.

      • http://www.industrializeme.com/ Dan

        +1 to that.

        I’m on a Liquid Smooth ICS ROM and lovin’ it.

          +1, Been running imos kernel on Thunderstick FB for mos, and I have had an upgrade available since Feb (and another in Dec). Sticking with this until something catches my eye. Thunderbolt has never been better.

      • Cameron_Watt

        another running great but with tshed and imos kernel.

      • Josh Groff

        My friend love his, some people just don’t realize how solid it is.

        (once you look past the battery life(which isn’t terrible,) it’s not really that bad.)

    • evileclipse

      Yeah, and believe it or not, its by choice! My tbolt is as fast as I want it to be, and its solid as could be. I haven’t found another phone yet that was worth giving up the kick stand for. The ONLY thing I wish for is an HD screen.

  • Keith Norris

    Has any Verizon phone been updated ot ICS?

    • Keith Norris

      *to

    • Michael_NM

      Yes, but not by VZW, and certainly not officially. :-P

      • Keith Norris

        Terrible…what about the other carriers are they just as bad? I haven’t been keeping up with them.

        • Josh Groff

          GSM carriers seem to clear updates faster, CDMA always seems to delay. (I’m assuming that has to do with the worldwide spread of said phones.)

            Why should the *CARRIER* be solely responsible for updating a device made by HTC????

          • Lactose_the_Intolerant

            Because the phone manufacturer provides proprietorial radios that work on Verizon’s network… if HTC sends out an OS update that ends up knocking phones off the system, who do you think the public is going to attack?

          • Josh Groff

            Verizon obviously. Which is why it’s the carrier that makes for delays, meeting FCC guidelines and having to make sure it’s 90% solid so people don’t bitch. They could at least do it faster (have more people test it by allowing those of us who want the update to test leaks with a public beta type set-up.)

          • Lactose_the_Intolerant

            You make a good point regarding beta testing… I know in the gaming world. people are clamoring for a chance to be a beta tester.
            Seems like VZW could have a sign up (maybe base it on a certain number of phones per model) and see what happens. People would probably have to sign a waiver in case it “breaks” their phone… but it would put many “hands” on the project and hopefully move things along.

          • Josh Groff

            How do you think developers get leaked ROMs? HTC has them finished well
            before the carrier releases the build. Also, with GSM carriers, the rest
            of the world has time to test the updates before they even hit us,
            allowing for generally faster fixes/updates.
