    I'm not extremely techno-inclined and had not intended to root my Inc, mostly out of fear of screwing it up. But I was bored the other day, so I started to follow the most excellent directions found here: http://androidforums.com/incredible...ked-3-rooting-stock-incredible-evo-2-2-a.html. I installed the H-Boot drivers with no problem, got all the settings set and then - didn't do it.

    Now the device is acting a bit funny - changing icons on the launch screen by itself (GO Launcher EX); Gmail has force closed several times; a few things -and I'm wondering if I should, or even can, undo what I did.

    Also, I'm wondering - really - what do I gain from rooting? I'm not sure that I understand why to do this at all.

    Anybody willing to offer some help or advice? Sorry if this has been discussed or is too elementary. TIA.

    what you did shouldn't have effected your phone at all. you didn't make any changes to it whatsoever.
