So I woke up this morning excited to see that the new GingerBread base for the Thunderbolt was leaked last night (Version 2.07.605.0). Sense or not, I’m always down for flashing the “latest and greatest”. So I was highly disappointed when I flashed it only to have all my root permissions denied. Far be it from me to complain about someone’s hard work to bring us the latest updates before the carriers do, but I was kind of miffed that I killed 37% of my battery here at work with no charger (between making a backup, flashing the ROM, rebooting, installing some root apps, and then subsequently having to restore to CM7) on a ROM that appears to not be rooted. I could have saved a lot of trouble if someone from the forums it was released on made a quick statement saying that an honest mistake was made, and to please hold off until we fix it. It only bothers me because I again had to register for yet another forum just to download. Call me ungrateful, but I think a quick tweet was in order… even though we flash all this at our own risk.
Once we see an update that root permissions were fixed on this latest leak for the thunderbolt we’ll keep you updated.
Did you flash the latest leak? Were you able to get root permissions working? Let us know how in the comments!
There is a kernel that you can download on the forums that you can flash if you have root issues. The link for the kernel is below the actual ROM DL links. Make sure you download this kernel as well when you download the leak!
