    Oh God here we go. Another android vs. IPhone thread. Whoever is leaving android, just go. Why are you still on the forums? I forsee this thread getting shut down soon enough

    My point exactly. Iphones aren't nearly as easy to free. That dude needs to do some reading.

    Guys... Chill... It's his choice if he wants to switch to an iphone. Don't bash him because of his choice. Android isn't for everybody. So don't bash him.

    Ok... So... If Gingerbread doesn't come out before July 1st, then I'm going to root my phone. I've read a lot, but still have questions.

    If I root unrEVOked, then can I still run Cyanamogod (sp?)?
    - If I can, then where would I go to get it?

    I plan on using a Kernel to underclock (overclock, not sure which), so that my phone will last longer...
    - Is there a certain one that I should use?
    - And where can I find kernels to use?

    After I root, will I lose my contacts? Or any of the apps that I paid for? Or will all my apps be under my gmail app and all I have to do is redownload them?

    That's all I can think of at the moment... If you have advice to give, then it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance everyone! :icon_ banana:

    First you will run unrevoked it shouldn't delete your contacts but to to be safe quick sync with Gmail. Next after root you will want to download an app named titanium backup. You might have to download an add on but just click okay. Then you will want to go to the three tabs on the top and click back up and restore. Then you will hit menu and there should be six choices choose batch then find an option like back upper apps + data. Check back in when you get this far I don't want you to get to over whelmed. Also I got an email today saying gingerbread. Will come summer 2011

    Are you rooted right now? Or are you unrooted waiting for 2.3?

    EDIT: I see that it says "Sent from my rooted Droid Incredible"

    Haha...

    In Windows:
    Download and install unrEVOked modified USB Driver
    1. Uninstall HTC Sync, DoubleTwist, and DropBox from the PC. They can be reinstalled later if you desire, but for now they've got to go.
    I can't find HTC Sync, DoubleTwist or Dropbox on my PC...

    The battery life AND performance will be better, and gingerbread has faster response to your touch (by a little).

    If you notice your battery ISN'T as long, follow my tutorial in my signiture!

    Do you have to put a ROM on your phone before a kernel?

    I personally think its best to flash a Tom then before putting back all your stuff download a kernal. And flash that. Rarely it will get stuck. And you will have to reflash the Tom
