    The only way to get S-OFF right now is the XTC clip. AlphaRevX has not released their software S-OFF yet. I have seen some Asian users with S-OFF from the factory, but I suspect that their carrier allows it.

    You don't need to now. AlphaRev X public beta was released today, which supports the Incredible 2. Only via Linux at the moment, as the Windows executable was broken.

    So you can install that w/Linux? Is it difficult? I'm a Windows guy w/a DINC 2.

    With the xtc clip I don't know if you can go back if you need to. Not sure.

    Carelessly swyped on my phone so there may be some weird typos

    If you receive the OTA, you'll have to use the XTC Clip to root. Alpha's isn't capable of rooting GB yet. In the old rooting processes, you won't receive the OTA after rooting, not sure if that still holds here. Imagine it does.

    Root. Why? GB ROMs will be available. Just make sure you take a nandroid backup, and keep that SOB safe.

    So do I just load the alpharevx.tgz and load it? I'm not sure how to actually run the root on my DINC 2.

    Don't I need to do something to the phone first to get root access?

    Wait til there are solid instructions to root. I think it is only for Linux now. You can check xda. Also dont root unless you have a specific reason to do so.

    S-OFF is available as of two days ago. Consequently, full root is also now available.

    The Windows method has bugs. Do an Ubuntu Live CD, run that and root from there. Works perfectly and takes maybe another fifteen minutes. And that time is spent in setting up the Ubuntu CD. It works great.
