September 2011

[09/04/2011] Introduced the Official Thunderbolt ROM & Kernel Listing v3.0, Updated Tiamat 1.1.2, Updated Imoseyon leanKernel v3.6.0, Added ClockworkMod Recovery
[09/05/2011] Updated SHIFTAO5P v2.0F, Updated SHIFTS3N3E v1.4F

Q: How do I get my ROM/kernel listed on here?
A: Your ROM/kernel must meet all the requirements to be listed on RootzWiki. Along with that it must be listed on RootzWiki in the proper Thunderbolt Development area with the latest release listed in the title of the thread so I can easily know when a new version is released. Finally you must properly credit anyone else's work. I will not tolerate listing any ROMs/kernels that kang from other developers and not give proper credit where its due.

Q: How can I submit info for my ROM?
A: Just private message me here with any info you want me to include with your ROM infos such as developer credits, potential chat room for discussion for said ROM, and other infos you would find of use to the listing. Also if you want me to update any info about your ROM you can private message that to me as well.

Q: Okay I got questions to ask about ROMs such as which is the best one to use... where can I get answers?
A: The best place I recommend is to post in the Thunderbolt Q&A area. Be sure to click on the "Yes, this is a Question" option as well when putting together your post asking your important question.

Q: AOSP? CyanogenMod? Debloat? RUU? What does all this gibber talk mean?
A: The Thunderbolt Root User's Dictonary maintained by MattBeyers does a great job at explaining all of this.

Q: What happened to KDKobes ROMs?
A: Due to KDKobes kanging from other developers I am no longer listing those ROMs.


Demolition Man would like to Thank ....

First and foremost thanks to all the developers for all the hard work that has been put into all the amazing work. With you developers we would have none of the amazing ROMs, kernels... let alone this listing wouldn't exist.

Thanks to both XDA for letting me start this listing, Ryanmo5 for
helping out, and MyComputerDoctor for taking over running the listing.

Thanks to the numerous contributions from members on both forums including some great feedback which has help make this listing even better. I might not have said you by name but you know who you are. Trust me I'm very thankful for all your feedback.

Thanks to Blizzard for creating the worst crack ever... World Of Warcraft. Thanks to Major League Soccer. Thanks to the city of Pawnee, IN especially their Parks And Recreations department. Thanks to Mountain Dew Throwback for giving me some fuel when updating the listing. Thanks to Ring Of Honor. Thanks to both the New England Patriots and Minnesota Vikings.

And thank you all XDA and Droid Forum members for all the support!

MyComputerDoctor would like to Thank ....

I would like to start off by thanking Google for creating such a unique Operating System. One that grants technology lovers like us the opportunity to modify and create a "personal" user interface.

Obviously, without the Developers, a list like this would not ever exist. All your tireless work does not go in vain. Thanks.

Demolition Man, I have been using your list since the day I received my Thunderbolt in the mail. Your database was my source for up-to-date information in regards to Thunderbolt Modification.

If you enjoy using this list as much as I did, please let me know and hit the "Thanks" button. Happy Flashing......

SynergyROM Nighties
I have been Modifying my Android Phone's since the Orig. Droid and it seems
that every ROM has it's really annoying quark that just gets to you.. Well, since
I have been running SynergyROM since last week, I have had no real issues to
speak of, and I have to admit, this is the very best ROM I have had on my Thunderbolt
to date, and I have run every ROM in this list above plus a ton of older Froyo
Releases. I'm excited to see whats next from these guys!
I honestly cannot speak of any at this time.
It would be nice to see some more MOD's for this ROM.

Das Bamf 3.0 RC 4.9
What's not to like about the rom? The support base is amazing (I know, not per the ROM, but the users) The overall design and layout. If you were turned off by HTC's Sense, Team BAMF will rekindle that fire. Their toolkit is impressive and makes making system changes pretty painless.
*Things that are out of Devs hands* (Like lag camera) I wish they'd implement the DasBamf Toolkit into the full settings similar to OMFGB did on the DInc (haven't used OMFGB on TB)
If you want to try some of the GB RCs, I can't stress how important a full wipe 3x is. Though, yes you can just load it on top of the old RC, you may have lingering bugs.

Also, use MyBackUp Pro/ MyBackUp Root to do restores. Saves Homescreens too. (Widgets will fail, but shortcuts usually go through fine)
