    I just got the Incredible and want to root the phone but keep the sense stuff on it. I actually like the sense but want to add programs like I had on the droid like titanium back up, wireless tether etc. These are rooted programs.

    Can I root with unrevoked and still keep the orig incredible software?

    Thanks!

    Rooting is just giving yourself administrative permissions so you wont lose the sense ui. The only thing that would get rid of them would be flashing roms that are vanilla, but i'm not too familiar with the roms for your phone.

    Just don't flash any ROMs. Although, SkyRaider is a GREAT Sense ROM that keeps all the features the original has, with a few new ones.

    But, Spaz33g is right. Unless you're flashing ROMs without sense themed in them, you're all set. You don't even need to flash a ROM to get those rooted apps.

    I also like sense and have been going between SkyRaider and Redemptive Revolution both of which work great and keep Sense.

    Yea, i loaded a couple ROMs but, ehhhh.... I like reverse engineering better take whats working and remove what you dont want rather than start fresh and place everything you want.

    I likejust freezing the apps i hate and having everything I like, i think roms for the elite that like personal boot screens and **** that i could care less about!
