    I'm normally happy to have root, but this weekend all I saw was drama tearing the android community apart. All the drama bashing on Jake was uncalled for, an all the excitement an creative ideas I had for the Incredible withered somewhat. I feel disappointment to be a part of a "call people names and liars" community.

    So where is it? If they have it, release it.

    Or is it only going to be on a paid Rom Manager?

    I'll believe it when I see a video of a different ROM running on a DI.

    From what I been told, just because you have root access, does not mean you have figured out the signed bootloader issue.....and without that No Custom Roms can be loaded.

    No Video of another rom but video of root


    I dont see where Jake claimed to have loaded a custom rom, this is a huge victory for the incredible community. If root is true Jake deserves an apology from everyone who flamed.

    That just shows Root, not a different Rom on the DI.

    Its a very big step in the right direction. You guys now move on to something else to complain about, when it took a weekend to crack it open.
    I think a little congratulations are in order, along with apologies.
    Now that we have permissions, it won't be long.

    So even though custom roms cannot be currently used, are you able to flash custom kernels?
