There has been much excitement surrounding the release of the new gingerbread roms, but the leaked radio that is required with these builds might be bricking some thunderbolts. It is strongly advised to revert back to a froyo rom and radio. More details can be found if you follow the link below.

Das BAMF 2.0, which is built from the leaked gingerbread rom, has hit and is sporting many of the cool features from sense 3.0 including the lockscreen, weather, weather wallpaper, and more. This build does require the leaked gingerbread radio to be flashed.
Update: Leaked gingerbread radio has been known to brick phones, proceed with caution.

If your having short battery life issues with your thunderbolt, I would suggest buying some cheap batteries off ebay and carrying a fully charged battery with you throughout the day. If your phone runs low, just swap the battery for the fully charged one. Most packages come with a wall charger just for the batteries, so it makes having extra, fully charged batteries very simple. I bought two 1500mAh batteries and a wall charger off ebay for $10 shipped. Yes, they aren't really 1500mAh batteries, but they do last me a good 6 or 7 extra hours after my OEM battery runs out. When I have a fully charged, extra battery in my pocket, I'm never afraid to use my phone to it's awesome potential.

This morning a test build for the upcoming official gingerbread update was leaked. It originally was not flashable but @jcase took care of that. Currently, the back camera appears to be broken. Below is a video demo from droid-life and a link to the instructions to flash from androidpolice.

The new htc update is rolling out to non-rooted devices now, and guess what, it's exactly the same as the leaked update from weeks ago released by jcase. This release has some issues with random reboots but has improved battery life and gps. I've been enjoying the new build and radio in das bamf v1.6.3.
The thunderbolt has had free hotspot from launch till tomorrow I believe, but Verizon has extended that till June 15th. Since the free wireless tether app has been removed from the market, here is a link to download the apk for after June 15th.

In order for this to work, the HTCThunderbolt needs to be S-OFF. Flashing the radio with a corrupt file or interrupting the flash, can brick the device, please proceed with caution.
Note: There have been reports of gps issues with this radio. Although, I have not had any problems myself.
