Droid Incredible Finally Rooted

Douglas Carter

HTC's Droid Incredible has been a fairly tough handset to get rooted when compared to how quickly (before official release) the HTC EVO 4G was rooted. Some guys from Unrevoked managed to get the Droid Incredible successfully rooted. They also commented that their current method is both "very hard" and "its not very repeatable."

 On XDA Developers forums, Shadowmite wrote about their accomplishment:

"Yes, we got two phone's rooted. I will update here if we find a way to make it likely and/or with more details. But suffice to say, at the moment its not very repeatable. We are working on many methods still, but this will be useful in many ways.

The wiki at mentions that "This hack is for power users only right now, and is not as simple as unrevoked is. We are working on expanding the race window."

Engadget adds however, that "The important thing though, is that it's happened, and we're now probably only a few days removed from a user-friendly patch that lets us truly do whatever we might want with that handsome device. "
