Ok I just wanted to know if there's another way to root other then adb. Last time I rooted I used adb, but now I want to root again and don't feel like doing the long process or is adb the safest and fastest way?

Yeah I was looking at the revolutionary rooting way it looks pretty easy...so I was trying to say does it matter what firmware version etc that's on your phone that will prevent from rooting. I hope that helped.

Just the hboot version, but I don't think there is an OTA pushed hboot that hasn't been unlockable by revolutionary (there's only two, 1.04.0000 and 1.05.0000).

I just tried that on my Thunderbolt and it showed S-OFF in HBoot but when I go to Busybox Installer or Superuser is still shows that I'm not rooted, am I forgetting something?
You need to flash the su zip file linked on the Revolutionary page. Revolutionary just gives s-off and custom recovery not root. You have to flash the Su zip afterward root. Sorry I don't have a link to the su zip but it shouldn't be hard to find.

Edit: found the link

When I got everything to work right until i rebooted into clockworkmod recovery. It would stick at the htc screen and wouldn't go into clockworkmod recovery. Is there any reason that this would happen? I battery pulled but had no success. however it would say connecting to pdanet? would installing pdanet for a litttle while solve the problem?
thanks
