For those of you who plan to buy the HTC Thunderbolt with developing in mind, you may be interested to know that an updated firmware for the system software is available to download online now, although it’s not an official one from Verizon.

The update doesn’t appear to be anything major, but it may be of use to those of you who plan to root the device and start installing custom applications on the Android 2.2 device. As most of you will be aware, the Thunderbolt is now available to buy on Verizon, either online or in-store although stocks may be running short by now.

If you’re interested in downloading the most up to date version of the software for the Thunderbolt, you can grab it here, as reported from Droid-Life. Moving away from the update, you can now see a handy 360 degrees view of the Thunderbolt up at the official Verizon website here, if you click learn more you can then buy one if you like, but we recommend choosing from Amazon as they will be offering the device for $179.99 compared to Verizon’s $249.99.

For those of you who are willing to try this new firmware update, let us know how you get on and if you spot any noticable changes in the update that we should know about.
