    They just tweeted "Do not take the OTA coming from HTC this week."

    I wonder if Verizon is somehow trying to road block rooting. Any thoughts?

    Every OTA breaks root so that's not new. I wonder what's in the new OTA. Hopefully a fix for this horrible battery life.

    Ya I realize that.

    I was thinking more along the lines of something that cant be undone or reversed.

    Ok, so I was just about to attempt to root using the method that was released yesterday. Should I just wait until the root with recovery is released?

    Also, I've never used adb before and I just installed it and got it running. Realistically, what are the chances of bricking my phone if I mess up along the way? I do have some experience using terminal in Linux, so I guess that helps. thanks

    If you've never used adb before, then it's strongly recommended that you don't attempt to root using the currently available method. I don't know the exact chances of bricking your phone, but I would assume they're rather higher.

    Thanks wolf. I guess I'll have to wait for an easier method. Maybe I'll try to practice adb with my d1.

    Yes there is always the possibility of bricking if you don't follow directions. IMO, I would just wait till the newer method is released.

    I think I'm just going to wait, but I really don't want too. I was really used to having total control with my d1. Reading the instructions it doesn't look too complicated. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't I basically be copying and pasting commands into adb and shell? Also, renaming a file and then putting it on the sdcard?
