HTC's new Thunderbolt smartphone has already been rooted -- just one day after launch.
News of the HTC Thunderbolt root surfaced on an XDA developers forum on Thursday evening, and detailed instructions soon followed. Android Police provides full instructions on how to root your HTC Thunderbolt, but keep in mind that there are number of pros and cons to consider before you take the root jump.
The Thunderbolt is a 4g (LTE) variant of the pre-existing HTC Desire, so it isn't a surprise that the Thunderbolt root came so soon.
