Cheers Incredible and kly142!
It looks like one last software update has gone out to the HTC Thunderbolt just hours before it goes on sale. If you are planning on joining the land of the superusers once this bad boy is rooted, then you might want to think about grabbing this latest PG05IMG file.

News over the weekend was filled with new HTC Thunderbolt rumors including one claim that the device was really struggling with battery life. A firmware fix was to be released “soon” that would hopefully address the battery/radio problem, and guess what? Our friends over at 911 Sniper leaked one out this morning. I should also point out that this comes on the heels of an industry “friend” who let slip that the phone is actually signed off on now and is ready to be shipped. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean two days from now, but could mean by March 10th like that massively leaked photo seemed to hint at.
Should be just a few days now. Oh, and let’s hope we see those commercials pop back up, only with a date at the end this time instead of “Coming soon!”
It looks like the final RUU for the HTC Thunderbolt has been leaked just 12 days before the phone is supposed to hit stores. We’ve seen at least two of these since the phone was announced at CES (here and here), so you might as well grab this one for your collection. Oh, if you missed our news on pricing from yesterday, you can check it out here.

I think we’re up to 3 leaked RUUs for the HTC Thunderbolt now, aren’t we? From site 911HTC, we have version 1.07.605.3 for those of you in the RUU cracking business to play with. Hopefully this means we are just preparing for that last week of February launch.
Early last week, after the HTC Thunderbolt was officially announced, the original RUU leaked for it giving all of us a glimpse into the guts of a device that easily made our top 2 CES list. Well today, a new RUU has been released as version 1.05.605.0 with a PG05IMG alongside it. Grab them now from the links below and let’s start digging into them!
These are huge downloads, so it may take a while.
The same day the HTC Thunderbolt was announced, the RUU and the PG05IMG snuck out via 911HTC, a site that seems to push out files for phones like no other. These files are quite large, include a bunch of new bloatware apps like Bitbop, MobiTV, MOG, Rhapsody, Rock Band, plus some live wallpapers. You can bet that ROMs are already in the works, but more importantly, we’re hoping this means that the device is headed to stores much sooner than the “March” timeline VZW gave us on Thursday.
