Hello-
Again, big thanks for the work done by unrevoked team. Awesome.

My phone is arriving today, and I'd like to root. However, I'd also like the ability to return the phone to factory spec in case of an emergency. Is that possible via the unrevoked3 tool? If not, where can I find a factory Droid Incredible ROM or recovery image to flash?

Lastly, are there any changes to the wifi tether methods with one click root vs previous methods?
Thanks!

Not really- nothing addresses the new unrevoked3 tool. Don't leave an answer unless you bring something new to the table- I've done my basic homework.

EDIT: Can't post links yet, but there is a post called "[HOW 2] Downgrade software version (before OTA)" which has instructions on using the HTC Radio Update Utility. Can anyone confirm if this works with unrevoked3? outsid0r - is this the same method you are referring to?

Thanks! That was very helpful, I appreciate it. The mods can mark this thread as closed, I think. I suppose I'll now be comfortable with rooting the phone!

rooting is quite easy, but and FYI for right now, using windows can get a communication error which is under investigation by the unrevoked team
