    One and only one phone has been rooted.. it was a lucky break that can't be reproduced as of yet.. more details to follow.. irc channel ##incredibleroot to watch the action.. all voices have been muted for now to cut the devs a break with chatter..

    Here is the instructions for power users only:
    public:adb_in_recovery [RootWiki]

    Looks like 2 are rooted.. Looking good There might be more.. I can't get a good number..

    Use this link to post results regardless of whether you have root or not.. It would really help the devs with every bit of info..
    HTC Incredible adb+recovery root survey

    here is the text is case you missed it.

    Please, don't blow smoke. Is this for real?

    Edit: I checked XDA devs and there is a thread about it.

    yes the irc channel.. i just added the text from it.. just kind of happened.. do not try not duplicate unless you know what you are doing.. read the whole thing and then do what you want with it..

    Can we have a tl;dr version of that chatlog or am I being too wishful? Or is just saying only 1 phone has been rooted enough?

    SOB!! I wish I would have opted for insurance this time around. I don't trust getting in this early without it. I want to try it bad.

    I have insurance but I'm still cautious because this is my 1st android. But I'm still ready to go. I'm glad EM is trying this first.

    Does anyone have info on proper backups in terms of apps/contacts etc. and also the possible need to downgrade to the pre-OTA os?

    Edit: You can export your contacts directly to the sd card from Contacts. Contacts>Menu>Import/Export.

    At this point it seems a rollback may not be required. Will update if that changes to keep the info current.

    use ASTRO File Manager - Android app on AppBrain to back up apps.. under tools (sd card required)
    and gmail for contacts

    Downgrade is NOT needed for this..
