HTC’s DROID Incredible finally grows some roots

HTC’s DROID Incredible has just gained a new feature, root access.  For some odd reason, the Incredible has been one of the toughest HTC handsets to crack.  Six weeks may not seem like a long time, but it is an eternity compared to the 3-4 days it took to get root access on the Sprint HTC EVO.

At this point, the hack is considered to be extremely difficult and “not very repeatable.”  Within the next few days or weeks we should see a much more simple process emerge and them we should start to see a plethora of experimental ROM builds show up all over the net.  Root access isn’t for everyone, but if you want to push your DROID Incredible for all its worth, feel free to check out the source link below.

So what’s next on the list? The LG Ally and myTouch 3G Slide look like prime candidates for a little hacking.

      Sadly, it’ll take a lot more than root to make the backflip an awesome phone… or even a decent phone…

    While mostly true (it’s not a terrible phone), it’s the only choice we have on AT&T.
    I find it so absurd there are so many people complaining their carrier doesn’t have this or that, or a “Android Super Phone.” Or what not. Every other carrier has something, and yes TMO has the Nexus subsidized. But AT&T has one phone (subsidized), period, end of story.

    One phone that needs some love to actually make it worth it….
