    A Rom is a modified OS. To install a rom you have to be rooted, a process which voids your warranty, but gains you access to certain lockes out features of the operating system such as Wi-Fi Tether. Although you can unroot and nobody can tell if you have rooted. To root the Droid Incredible you would have to use the Unrevoked software, i am ont familiar with the process though.
    Here are some threads to read up on about rooting:

    You can't see sigs in when using tapatalk or the DF app, unless someone sets up a special sig like I have.

    To see the sig, sign in from a PC and then read this thread. The signature is at the bottom of the post.

    I've had an Android phone since the original Droid first launched and this thread is by far the best thing I've ever read about the phone! I'll be making my wife read it tonight. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!! (... and yes, I'll be adding to my siggy.)
