    Will it be able to WiFi tether with the current packages or will a new WiFi tether package have to be made?

    So why hasn't it become known that it's rooted?

    call me a skeptic, but how do you root a device without actually having the device?

    Don't believe anything you read until you see proof. Root success has been lied about before on other phones.

    Why am I skeptical? If the N1 can't hit those kind of OC speeds, how would the DI? The actual cpu in both are the same.

    Well, we will see.

    Heck, I can crank out an 3ghz Droid Incredible kernel if folks want :D

    Doesn't mean its rooted. The kernel source was released a week or two ago.

    The fastest a Snapdragon has been OC'ed and remained stable is 1.113 Ghz. They went as high as 1.186 Ghz but the phone became unstable and flakey. Seeing that this is the same processor only on CDMA I highly doubt that 1.5 Ghz let alone 2 Ghz is even remotely achievable unless they are using liquid nitrogen to cool it. Because of this I am taking this I am calling shenanigans.

    I’m not hating. Just doubting. I mean come on you guys have been in the community long enough. Did he really think a post like that would not have a reaction like this? I like many I’m sure want to believe him but as you and him know this isn’t really standard operating procedure to announce root on a device. The I have root but need a phone will always cause skepticism.

    It has nothing to do with hating it has to do with common sense. OK so the Incredible may be rooted. What we are doubting, and rightfully so, is the 1.5 Ghz and 2 Ghz kernels. It is well known that the Nexus One can only be OC'ed to 1.113 Ghz while remaining stable and at 1.186 Ghz is becomes flakey and unstable. Anything higher becomes unbootable. Now for someone to claim 1.5 Ghz - 2 Ghz on the SAME processor as the Nexus One is a bit of a stretch by anyones imagination.

    The problem is, there is no proof. It may very well be legit, but why not screen shot the root? When the iPad was Jailbroken pretty much the first week it was out, they posted a video on Youtube, etc.

    Saying you have root is like some of these people that said they had the OTA 2.1 update with no proof...like weeks before anyone else....hard to believe.

    And again I ask from earlier, will the WiFi tether work with this root you are working on?

    Just curious if so. I already posted in that blog by Jake...I will donate 50 bucks when this gets released and I get it working on a DI.

    I think you are the one hating. :p

    I simply don't believe what I read until I see proof for myself. Call it skepticism, but its not hating. I live by the motto of put up or shut up. Sorry if it bothers ya.

    Compiling a kernel is not proof of concept for rooting. Sorry. Its not a secret that HTC released the source for the kernel.
