    So... hi. I'm new here. I've got an Incredible and probably don't know half of what it's capable of. I used to consider myself very tech-savvy, but not so much anymore. UnrEVOked 3.21 was posted very recently and I really want to root my phone, but I'm absolutely terrified of bricking it. I've turned into one of those people that need step-by-step instructions and I don't want to drive everyone crazy with 8,000 questions, so I want to make sure I've got all my ducks in a row before starting.

    After lots of searching I've found these two threads which seem to have the most information:

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/rescue-squad-guides/70875-what-you-need-know-about-rooting.html

    and

    http://www.droidforums.net/forum/rescue-squad-guides/39254-sbf-root-unroot.html though I guess that might be irrelevant for now.

    I've got a MacBook Pro with Snow Leopard on it.

    Is there anything I'm missing, anything else I need to know before tackling this? My smart phone makes me feel very not smart.

    Thanks in advance!
