    Just unrevoked my two incredibles using the beta version worked flawlessly

    These guys seem to be on the right track

    Both rooted in less than 10mins.

    then used titanium to get rid of bloat

    Good work

    unrevoked is the best. I would have gone back to my Eris if it weren't for these dudes. no joke there either,

    I still don't really see what the big deal about root is. All the features/extras people talk about when rooted are NOT that big at all.....at least for the Dinc. I just feel like nothing is really that cool and exclusive about it. Any added ability that root gives to the phone is not too special. Make/Discover some phenomenal new feature for root-only users and I'll go ahead and root.

    it's cool, you don't have to root. we're not rooting for you to be rooted. this particular thread is just saying that this method is the best way to do so.....for those who want it.

    I have a feeling this will still get moved to Root subforum... but, if I decide to root, I'll check these guys out. :D

    I've been going back and fourth with the whole root/don't root thing.....if I decide to go the unrevoked route, where would I start?

    I have the official 2.2 OTA and I used the unrevoked 3.21 beta to root my incredible no problem just followed the guides on here

    Big thing to remember is uninstall HTC sync before you try it, they don't play well together

    I finally broke down and did it because I was pissed at all the crap Verizon put into 2.2. It was bad enough in 2.1 with Peep and CityID and whatnot, but then VZ Nav?!?!?! WTF do we need that for?!?!? :mad:

    So I rooted and removed ALL of the crapware that they put on my phone. And there is a noticeable difference in both performance and battery life since I got that crap off of my phone.

    I also was able to go back to my old custom boot animation (which I adore and love to show off to people) and went ahead and added a custom splash screen. No more white HTC logo screen for me!

    Being able to do a full backup of the phone is very nice. If I ever need to factory reset my phone I will save hours by having those backups.

    I also got SetCPU which allows me to have a custom profile that lowers my CPU settings while the phone is in idle which saves battery life.



    For more advanced uses, being rooted allows you to put on custom roms, kernels and flash new radio's. These are things I don't really plan to do for now, but if Verizon decides not to release anymore updates to us (aka - gingerbread) I may flash a custom rom for it instead.
