    How long before the Incredible is rooted?

    Is anyone working on this yet? As much as I love my Droid I really like the lighter incredible and would switch but only if it can be rooted at the time.

    I think the N1 root procedure works on the incredible. Not verifyied though because not many people are willing to do it without verification. Hold power and down volume to get to the bootloader.

    There's no telling how long it will be. Could be months away, or someone could be close to rooting it as we speak. If the phone has to be rooted before you'll switch, you'll just have to wait.

    Please excuse my ignorance by this question. I am a newbie to Droids. I come from a BB curve and when I decided to switch to an Android phone (originally was gonna get Moto Droid, but then the DInc came out and went with it) I kept hearing about the ability to root. I'm sorry but I have no idea what this means. Also, I see a lot of threads about ROM's for the Droid. Can someone answer for me in a simple but not too vague way what rooting is and what is ROM? What does it do? How do you do it? What does it cost? Etc. Thanks so much.

    This is like asking when the buried treasure will be found. When it is done everyone will know it is done. There is no date and time determined for this, nor will there be.
    Chris

    If you apply a rom or theme - backup first!
    If you don't know how to backup...Stop until you do.
    hint: I name my backups like this: sg6.0_20100428 or ss4.2_20100626 to easily find them later. rom and date.

    • settings/apps/manage apps/filter/hidden apps/root features/enable - set to yes.
    • Pop up indicates June 31st 2010.
    • Secondary pop-up indicates Force Close due to invalid date.

    People at xda-developers are trying diff. Methods and people who are trying are put to shame with crappy comments users put. I don't think anytime soon, because look how long it took for eris to be rooted.
