1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    He guys, i'm new to the Dinc world, and i want to explore all possibilities. Rooting sounds like a good thing to do in some situations and bad in others. I would like to learn all about why I would want a rooted phone, and what are the safest steps to learn about what it does, and how to keep it going. I just bought it today so it should have all the new factory updates, 2.2.. I'm somewhat technically inclined but also got where i am by myself by trial and error and the internet. So I wont to know everything possible before I start this.. Thanks for your input!

    And very smart move researching first. Many jump straight in and have problems. It is completely possible to root without issues, just follow the directions explicitly and don't rush anything. I swore I would never root my Incredible but got tired of waiting for 2.2 and did it. I will be hard pressed to go back to unrooted again.
