    No Mojo, no root yet. I wouldn't think it'd be too long though. This will be the new "it" phone.

    Hey cplus. I'm in IT too, btw. ;)

    Well, at the moment.. No it has not been rooted.. I started this thread due to the leads I got from Paul at MoDoCo. Acidbath on XDA is workIng towards it.. and hopefully the root Paul gave us for the desire and legend will work.. issue is we dont have a RUU with test keys.. We only have it with released keys.. Meaning we need an update to allow root. Fear not, Verizon should releaseone in afew short weeks.

    I apologize to the extentof nothaving the Info ready.. It will be though.. I promise..

    Hey Jon, Funny story..I did go in there yesterday, The rep there said EVERY store is sold out. He also went on saying that he could overnight one if I really really wanted..lol. I have to wait..I can't justify to my gatekeeper why I need to upgrade my droid that I got in Nov. While she still has the dare and is not interested at all in upgrading because her phone...and I quote "still makes calls".....FML

    The title is BS, it's the Threadstarters way of gettig people in a thread that is useless unless it's actually been rooted, which it hasn't.

    lame.

    Thanks.. I forgot about this.. People are getting angry.. LoL.. Sowwy..

    I made a mistake of posting a little too soon.. Oh, and no.. This is not a Threadster's way to getting people into the thread.. It is almost here.. and trust you me.. I will will have it before all..

    I am checking with Koush.. Cyanogen.. Paul@MoDoCo.. and etc.. Remember guys, things changed from when I made my first post.. Paul and I thought this was possible, until, we saw we needed a Test RUU with keys.. Not a released one.. So yes, My apologies.. but.. It's an honest one..

    k, I notified the WebMaster and the MOd.. I changed the name to Incredible Root Soon Awaits.. Instead of what was SUPPOSE to be done by now.. Which is why it was there in the first place.. So, pardon, sowwy, aloha, It was an honest mistake with the best of intentions for all of you..

    I GD do promise that as soon as this is done.. I will let you all know..

    I'm looking forward to a battery meter that's more accurate than 10% increments. Maybe that can be achieved with this one.

    My battery is accurate. I've been using it for 2 days straight without charging it once and I'm only in the yellow. And that's using Android Market, messing with widgets, changing wallpapers, adding ringtones and generally messing with the phone. ;)

    patiently awaiting

    I too was using a moto droid rooted, overclocked @ 1100mhz, I think the droid was more stable running the home I preffer to run. I love Sweeter home 2. [yes now it likes to crash from time to time]. There is no othere like it. I can take the time to build my own layout, or download one others made then edit it up to my liking. I haven't been able to really try building my own on the DI. It crashes more when editing on here than it did on my droid.

    I wish I could use htc's widgets with sweeter home 2 since most of htc's are full page widgets. I could link certain one's to a button saying say friendstream and have it popup ontop of the rest not using up an entire page itself, like there favorites, and weather. You get the idea. I find the battery meter to be ok, just the battery itself drains so fast. I knew it would from the specs but didn't think itd be this bad. I do plan on getting a larger battery soon.


    Im currently hoping since I cant use there widgets I can uninstall them once I have root. I think they maybe whats causing SH2 to crash so much cause once it crashes I use System panel to shut all I can then I go back to editing for a while. I can sometimes editing for 20 or so minutes before it happens. On my droid I could go a halfhour sometimes more once I overclocked. Sorry to rant. Just kindof wish I waited a bit longer to get the DI since running SH2 and my home the way I like I think the droid was just as fast. Yes at stock speed it was much slower, but still was more stable. This is my honest opinion not saying everyones runs like mine.
