How to Flash:

In order for this to work, the HTC Thunderbolt needs to be S-OFF. Flashing the radio with a corrupt file or interrupting the flash, can brick the device, please proceed with caution.

  1. Download the your choice of radio for the HTC Thunderbolt.
  2. Make sure the filename is PG05IMG.zip exactly or it will not work and copy it to the same folder as adb (the /platform-tools folder within the Android SDK folder).
  3. Connect the HTC Thunderbolt to the computer via USB.
  4. On the computer, open terminal and run the following commands:
    Code:
    adb push PG05IMG.zip /sdcard/PG05IMG.zip<br />
    adb shell md5sum /sdcard/PG05IMG.zip
    NOTE: The md5 should match up the provide the original download location. If not, redownload & try again.
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
  5. The HTC Thunderbolt will reboot & usually boot into fastboot. Pressing the Power button will put the device into the bootloader.
  6. The bootloader will scan for the radio update. Once it finds the update, select Yes.
  7. Allow the bootloader to finish flashing the updated radio, and reboot the HTC Thunderbolt normally.

This is probably a stupid question...but why is there two separate downloads? One for the Radio and one for LTE - I've only downloaded one in the past when I've updated my radio.

They can be bundled together in a 2fer1er or you can flash them individually. This way you can mix and match any possible combo.

Correct...one for the radio and one for LTE...and like Jax said you can mix and match to best suit your needs. Remember...every phone is different and not every radio will work exactly the same even though they run on the Thunderbolt. So you'll have to see which sets work best for you.

Guess I'll ask the next stupid question .... ;-) I've only flashed combos while sidestepping the separate radio / LTE downloads.

When its mentioned that you can pick and choose the radio & LTE, does this mean flashing them in succession thru hboot? They wouldn't overwrite each other? Or is there something else involved in doing a "bundled together in a 2fer1er"?

No it wont flash over the existing...when you flash the baseband radio...flashing the LTE does not effect it. Which is why you can "mix-n-match" radio basebands...

Is there any recommendations for cm7. I'm having the data drop issue and was wondering what would be a good fix, radio wise.

Flashing the baseband radio through hboot, which you have to do, does not effect flashing the LTE radio...you have to flash both of them through hboot...but they are both different radios...

Awesome thread!! Thanks OP

And now for my stupid question :p say I have an md5 verifier on my PC, can I do this without adb? In other words, download CMDA flash in hboot, reboot (move CMDA radio file from root SD card of course) then do the same for the LTE radio ...

Yes...you are correct...download, move to SD, flash through hboot for both radios...no need for adb.
