I'm trying to gain root access to my HTC Thunderbolt (side note: quite possibly the very worst smartphone I've ever laid my hands on). I don't want to reset the phone or lose any of my data.
I'm following the instructions in this video:
Video recommends using the Revolutionary tool (http://revolutionary.io/
Downloaded the HTC fastboot drivers.
When I run the Revolutionary.exe I enter in the beta key and the program says:
Zerging Root... this might take a minute or so...
Then it fails w/ this error message:
Failed to get Root! :(
Press (almost) any key to exit.
This is on an HP laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium (SP1).
