i got up this morning and saw that gb had been leaked for the tb and flashed it to my phone non rooted. i then proceded to get to work and drop my thunderbolt on the ground breaking the screen:wub: went to verizon on my lunch break and they told me they would not replace it because i was running leaked software. so i need to find a way to get back to froyo if all possible all the buttons stil work and the screen is still responsive it just is a mess. any help would be greatly appricated.

From droid-life.com:

We'll start this off by saying that this is NOT the final Gingerbread build that your HTC Thunderbolt will receive from Verizon whenever it gets approved. This is technically an "official" build from HTC and Verizon, but again, is not THE build you will see when they start rolling out 2.3.
What I'm trying to tell you, is that if you load this, there is also a chance that you could be stuck with it for good (non-rooted users of course). That make sense?
I don't know the validity of that statement, but there may be no way to root that leak, and when the OTA comes, you won't be able to update (is what I get from droid-life's statement)..

Until someone finds a way to root that leak (if someone does) you're pretty much stuck there..

Nah I was on froyo das bamf but this method works coz you are applying an PGO5 ... THINGY via hboot not recovery. Essentially you are downgrading to the MR1 stock vzw update with everything vzw in it.

I'm with poontab, if you don't have insurance, I think the whole GB/"leaked software" thing is irrelevant.
Ditto. Verizon will not replace a phone with a cracked screen. Period. Hope you have insurance.

Just would like to clarify; Once you flash this new RUU you CAN NOT downgrade back to Froyo. Don't see why unrooted people are applying this, they're basically screwing themselves... No offense.
EDIT: It looks like I may be wrong... The newest Revolutionary tool apparently works to root this new RUU. I'd do a little research if I were you...
