    So I've been planning on rooting my phone for a while, but today the OTA become available to me, and I wanted to make sure I would still be able to root afterwards. It seemed like rooting post-Froyo on the Incredible wasn't possible, so I did some research how-to get and keep root along with use the official update directly over the air. I also did not want to lose my files/apps in the process or rely on backups to bring back my data, I wanted the same experience as a straight OTA update where you lose nothing.

    I decided to document what worked for me in case anyone else would like the same thing:
