Droid Incredible owners have been asking for a 2.2 rooting method for quite some time now and the unrevoked team has come through again. This should work with a stock Android 2.2, stock, straight-out-of-the-box Incredible. And since this rooting method falls under the “1-click” category, I’ll let you know now that the most painful part of the process is simply getting the correct drivers on your PC and phone. Once you get those set up, it really does take just one click.
To help you get your drivers installed, check out the following from an XDA Forums thread…
1. Windows users MUST install the HBOOT drivers for this to work: http://www.unrevoked.com/rootwiki/do…driver_install
2. Windows users need to uninstall HTC Sync or any other program that might talk to the phone over USB (doubletwist, etc). Disabling HTC Sync from the system tray is not enough. They interfere with the root process and will cause problems.
3. When asked for USB connection type, select “Charge Only” and “Remember this”.
This Wiki may also help.
And once you have all that setup, head over to unrevoked to grab the 1-click file!
(The method was pulled last night due to an EVO issues, but should be back shortly, if it’s not already.)
