    So, I just rooted my phone and am now a little confused. First, what is the Unrevoked reflash for? I though it was a custom ROM, but it seems to be something to back up your phone?

    Is the wifi-tethering that installed with the root free, or does it still add that extra $30/month Verizon has on their stock-tether?

    Is it possible to underclock the Incredible? My phone never has speed problems, but the battery never lasts the day. It'd be nice to have some trade-off.

    Lastly, how do I get a custom ROM onto my phone? Are there any stable ones available yet? Sorry for all the newbie questions, but looking at posts here was just making me more confused :p Thanks for the help!

    The new unrevoked tool is for flashing ROM's on your rooted phone.

    1st: the unrevoked flash tool helps you get back into recovery easy and unlock the system to be edited

    2nd: wifi tether is free and you do not have to pay verizon as long as u dont go over 5gb a month of data usage you should be fine

    3rd: once the kernels are finished being ironed out over at XDA you can flash those and underclock your phone

    4th:no clue i am to new at android but u can find some here

    Get an OEM HTC battery off of ebay from bidallies. the RHOD160 is a 1500mah battery that fits the incredible fine and gives me about 2 hours more battery a day. Big difference for 15 dollars shipped. Search the forums for bidallies for reviews. No crap batteries, just oem.

    Apparently, Android Central's battery they have on their online store is a beast and is exactly what you (me, everyone) is looking for to increase the battery life. They're $50 but seem to be worth it from the handful of reviews I've seen.

    I'm picking up one of these bad boys once I have some extra money (I'm a college student) to blow and do a little more research to make sure they're as good as what they appear to be.

    There is a controversy on that battery. Search the forums. They will show that the HTC battery I purchased on Ebay performs as well as the Seidio 1750mah for 35 dollars less.
