Well I've really done it now! I have been running my Thunderbolt rooted using the CM7 RC for a while and decided that I would like to see the official Gingerbread in action. I restored to my stock rooted backup and tried getting the update. It started to work but then got stuck at a screen with the bugdroid and an exclamation point surrounded by a yellow triangle. I pulled the battery and then booted back in only to have it give me the same screen after booting. I then decided I didn't mind wiping the phone anyways so I followed the instructions here (http://www.droid-lif...ild-2-11-605-3/) to install the ruu that leaked over the weekend. It displayed a failure during the update and asked me to reboot. Since then it only boots to the bootloader no matter what i do and has the pink ***LOCKED***, ***SECURITY WARNING*** at the top. It also now says MECHA XD SHIP S-ON, HBOOT-1.05.0000, MICROP-/, RADIO-, eMMC-boot, Jul 19 2011, 14:51:08. I read that the revolutionary tool might be able to fix this, went over to their irc and they say i need to boot the phone to use that. They also said i am basically screwed. Please if anyone knows what to do I could REALLY use some help!

I don't know for sure but at this point I would say that you could try installing one of a couple officially released RUUs via hboot - perhaps performing the manual root method may prove fruitful as well.

For the record, you should NEVER try installing am official update unless you are pure stock, no root, and S-On unless the devs say it's okay.

If the update failed...maybe try running the update again? And just to make sure...you did follow the instructions to the "T"? Or try restoring your backup.
