    One word: Ballin. I can't wait to get my Incredible and root the sucker. Hopefully it'll get a stock 2.2 ROM by the time Verizon ships it to me.

    Boy I feel like a moron. I at least kept my manners for the most part unlike some, but I'm shocked he pulled through!

    Very exciting. I'm itching to root my g/f's Droid. I'm really curious to just how fast it can be.

    The video is crap. Anybody can install the superuser apk and get an icon. If you don't have root, it won't do anything but tease you.

    I was very harsh with my words about this Jake fellow in another thread. If this is true, I will gladly donate $ as penance. We shall see! :eek::)
