This is a discussion on HTC Evo 4G... ROOTED?!?! within the HTC Incredible General Discussion forums, part of the HTC Incredible Discussion category; story at engadget.com root by grack.com what about us......
I still want to learn how to root hahaha.
im total noob, and i am just seeing whatsup and might do it soon if im capable
i hope ours comes soon! it shouldn't be too long now!
ok root is not something you just try... we have to wait till someone finds and exploit and supplies the update.zip for us to use..
That upsets me somewhat. An HTC phone that isn't even on the market yet is rooted? I wonder if HTC will put a patch on the EVO 4G before it is released or force an OTA update on the day of the phone's release to prevent this?
Im sure root is coming soon for the Incredible unless they really did THAT good of a job on preventing root lol.
Here's why we aren't getting root so soon.
The incredible is really hard to get right now (back ordered), so not a lot of people actually have it. Therefore there aren't a lot of people able to work on it.
A LOT of people got the Moto Droid when it came out, so there aren't too many Devs that have their hand on the Incredible.
Root has been found on several Sense UI devices that were < 2.1 and not many at all that are 2.1, so it might just take a while to get.
