    Some HTC Devices (like the Eris) took months to root, so you guys shouldn't hold your breath. Just check Android Central/Phandroid a few times a day.

    The phone just came out. You can't expect a root in a couple days.

    If root is a requirement, you should have gone with the Moto Droid.

    When I got my droid, root sure wasn't a definite thing, but you are right, if you want a device that can be rooted for sure then wait until it is before making a purchase.

    Tough decision though. Would I trade my root abilities for what I've read to be a vastly superior camera? I just might if it was renew time.

    As for a notice of when the htc-inc is rooted, there probably is no need to ask folks to post such a notice :)

    coming from a rooted and overclocked Droid, i am not sure if i want to root when it becomes an option. i like the stability of the phone as it is. my rooted droid was definitely not as stable as my Incredible.

    Hmmm, I can tell you that my own rom is more stable than stock Incredible ;)

    I find it funny they forgot to add the accessibility programs with the phone. I bet someone got their butt chewed for that. Maybe it will expedite an update.
