Here is the real story, the pics were fake, not from Jake day but some fraudulent member.

James friend also never had root and was lying to him.

So there we are and I am so so sick of all the BS and the flaming and lying!

I just got a passed down possible super boot thanks to Paul over at Modaco.
I am away from my PC for the next 2 days, experienced Devs PM me and let's see if this works.

No go we still need bootloader...see thread.

The majority of the current Root Conversation is taking place with Devs over at XDA, with experienced Devs like binny and others.....DEVS ONLY! see here:
[PR] Rooting For devs only - xda-developers

What is Root? Why would I want to Root my Incredible? What does it mean? I am a NOOB help me understand all of this...
See here:

I want to help root and learn more! Want to elearn more and Developing for an Android/Linux Device...

well, i am no dev, but i would like to say thank you in advance, haha. can't wait to get this phone and then root it. i am glad to hear that there is good interest in this phone. i pre ordered mine as well and can not wait! been without a smartphone for a couple months. sold my tp2 in prep for something better coming out. it was a long wait but i am sure it will be worth it.

i wish you and all who work on this project the best, and most speedy, of luck. thanks again

would like to see nexus one 3d photo gallery in your rom which would be nice. I also can't wait for free wifi tethering.

I have created a custom recovery.img from Ama_ra's source, so if fastboot is unlocked then we can just flash the recovery.img via fastboot and flash a custom ROM.

I used the xmoo shipped ROM for the images.

but if its not unlocked then we can try fastboot oem unlock and see if it unlocks the bootloader, but this will 100% void your warranty.

I have also created an update.zip but the shipped ROM might be newer than the leaked images from (xmoo)
