    yes it does.... I shared it at mdw as well with brian who is actively working on the issues remaining... I did notice it was a bit larger them the others though.... lol

    p.s. wifi tether is workign now too.... just create a folder on the sdcard called android.tether and put this file in there... works great now.

    Root ok
    Superuser ok
    busybox -ok
    Root explorer -ok
    Drocap - ok
    WIFI tether - ok.
    Ti Backup - ok
    Metamorph now see's busybox just fine..... but fails when trying to extract files to /system (which is expected at this point)

    Autokiller works.


    Quite nicely, I might add.

    Well first of all - CONGRATZ, you just gave a blazing flash of hope to every DI user out there.
    I think I'll wait till the process will be completely ironed out by many, and a super duper "walkthrough for dummies" appear.
    But for the tether alone I'll R00t.

    P.S. Motorola was probably design in mind to become the next "people's phone" that's why it some damn near unbickable ( I wish I had one...maybe wintertime...ebay...to play with =) ).

    Aaanyway congrtaz again.

    Thank you for posting these additional step-by-steps, Adrynalyne. While I've been rooted since the morning after the breakthrough, I wasn't sure how to install the Superuser.apk and get busybox fully functional. I'm happy to have Titanium Backup and wifi tethering up and running now, even if there aren't any ROMs to flash (just yet). I too hope to see some of Team Chaos's amazing work find it's way to the Incredible, once workarounds are found for the current limitations.

    This was a loooong time ago. There are much easier ways now, I believe the rooting process by unrEVOked installs busy box for you. However, if you really wanted to do it manually there is a typo in the above instructions

    should be
