    2.2 is fully rootable. The most recent OTA, however, closed the root exploits so if you accepted it you need to wait a day or two until unrevoked releases the latest version of the root tool.

    Well, after many failed attempts and trying on 2 different computers. Unrevoked root didn't work.......I'm guessing that last update I got pushed might have something to do. I will try again later.

    What is the whole purpose of rooting anyway? Like hacking the phone?

    Just think of the unrooted phone as using a "limited user" account on your laptop as of being the "administrator". More customization power, over clocking your processor and that sort of thing.

    It allows you to load a larger variety of applications, allows the use of the wireless tether application available from the market to avoid the Verizon mobile hotspot, enables the installation of custom roms and themes and generally makes the entire phone accessible to work with.

    If you're not necessarily technologically inclined, I'm not sure how much I would recommend this as you can definitely cause trouble in relation to your phone. But if you are somewhat capable, I would whole heartedly recommend rooting to really open up what your phone can do.

    Think of a house with a basement. All of the things that make the house operate are down there (circuit breaker, water heater, etc) but the door is locked. Rooting unlocks the door.

    Im worried that Unrevoked cant find a work around. I am tempted to go back to my D1 for the time being. I really miss MIUI with the pull down power control and the lockscreen.

    Thing is though, even without rooting an Android to me it works amazingly well. I mean compare any of the Droids to one of the dinosaur cellphones that looked like walkie talkies back in like the 80's, 90's, or whatever. Lol

    True, but once you get a taste of these custom roms and the features some of them offer, you cant go back! Trust me.

    I am so mad at myself for blindly accepting the update while I was activating my new "toy":cus:. I bought the Incredible because it has a large amount of custom roms available, including CM and MIUI, My two favorites, and I go and screw myself in the first couple of minutes that I have it!

    Ha I'm sure. I'm much too lazy though and don't have the time to mess with rooting a phone. Maybe I will try eventually and see for myself. :)
