    Beta has already been taken down.

    Sorry guys - that's the place to stay up to snuff though.

    How did 3.21 work out for you last night? Did you get it all done?

    It looks like they took them down from the site until it's official.

    Here is a link that might help - I'm not an expert at this though so I can't really troubleshoot for you:

    Everyone has to answer this question for himself/herself but the best reason I can give, now that I've done it, is that it is sooo much fun to be able to change things... themes, status bar changes, fonts, etc. It gives a level of control with the phone that just makes it such a toy! Don't get me wrong, I make serious use of my phone but who has not been drawn to the android phone because on some level they are just plain fun to play around with.

    I wonder if the USB drivers from unrevoked 3 would work on this 3.21. Anyone know?

    I agree with you 100%. I was nervous in the beginning, but am so glad I am rooted now. I have moved some Verzion bloatware and added wireless tether function. I am getting more and more involved as I learn more. I love my DINC Toy...I mean Phone!!!

    TOKEDUP...If you follow this guide, you should be good to go http://www.jonamerica.com/technology/howto-root-the-htc-droid-incredible/...I used it, only difference is this is for 3.14 and 3.21 has the s-off already in it.

    Worked like a charm for me. Finally got rid of the crap apps that I never use. I don't think I am going to fiddle with any ROMs, but just being able to control my phone is enough for me.

    There is a list of benefits here at the top of the installation page:

    You can also install custom ROMs that don't include bloatware and fixed stock froyo bugs with sometimes enhanced battery life.

    Just a quick question for those keeping track. Sometime right before midnight last night (eastern time) I saw the latest beta posted in the IRC channel. I downloaded it, but was seeing that with the incredibles they were getting root, but not all of them would go all the way to s-off. Just curious if that has been resolved or if they are still working. If anyone has any more information I'd love to see it. I was going to hold off using the file if they had a new version out as I definitely want s-off.

    You don't. It's not an application. The updates that they make are to make it work on other software/versions, and to make it easier to use. Once you're rooted, you are rooted.
