Let me start with "I am a rooter". My Thunderbolt is rooted and will always be rooted and with a custom ROM.

I was just wondering why I am seeing HTC phones that came out after the Thunderbolt reportedly getting Gingerbread before the Thunderbolt. And after the rumored update in June I thought it may be coming soon. It would be nice for the developers to have an official ROM and kernel source code to work with.

I'm just sayin'.

we're all wondering the same thing, my brothers dinc2 shipped with 2.3.3, yet the flagship 4g phone doesnt have it yet? im curious if google does some sort of RTM like microsoft does and htc is too busy working on ice cream sandwich than worrying about gingerbread, especially if its only going to be the most recent os for another few months. even still though you would think they would have a team of people whose job it is to push software updates

Because even HTC's devs are having a hard time with 4g lol.

That just goes to show how awesome slayher, r2doesinc, xoomdev, etc are

I couldn't agree more Athorax. Our Dev's are top notch and that is why I would never go back to "stock".

Chingy's gingeritis 1.2 is based off what he says is the official GB release. Might check that rom and the latest radio out. I am getting really good battery life for a Sense Rom. I think Virus's latest Synergy Roms are using the new GB base as well
Not official gingerbread for the thunderbolt but its an official build and not a test build.

Newer devices are getting GB because they are 3G. The whole 4G thing is what is making things take longer (assuming of course). The only thing that doesn't make sense is they already got LTE working to release the phone so I don't see what is taking them so long to make it all work with GB.

Ah my bad misread it. But still pretty solid build. Working great for me, I got 24hours on a charge so can't complain

So are our Thunderbolts' days numbered with the SGSII hitting our shores in August if we don't get an official update soon?

Maybe Verizon is busy integrating more bloat. I still can't believe they put their vcast application inside the htc music app in the last update.
