    Default Unrevoked 3 vs Unrevoked Forever

    So, I have been debating this for a while now, and with someone in the office telling me that when he rooted his Droid 3 with Cyanogen, it was pretty easy and well worth, it, I figured, what the hell, I might as well give it a shot. There are a couple apps I wouldn't mind having with a rooted device (Screen shots) and wouldn't mind taking some of the junk off the phone (Facebook and City Id). FYI, I have the original DInc if that matters.

    After checking out the Cyanogen page, and then the Unrevoked site, I noticed the Unrevoked 3, versus the Unrevoked Forever. After some reading, I see what each one does. One is forever, even with OTA updates, and the 3 can be unrooted if need be. I understand that.

    With my phone, I plan on keeping it until I buy something new, either the Bionic or X2 depending on if I like what the Bionic completely is. My question is if there was any other differences between the 2. Is one, for the lack of better terms, better, easier or whatever than the other, other than the forever feature? I have a feeling I will change phones before Gingerbread comes out for my phone, so that isn't an issue. I just wasn't sure if the only difference was the unrooting ability.

    I would assume the Forever is the way to go, but figured I would ask.

    Thanks in advance.

    You are close. Unrevoked3 and Unrevoked Forever are really one in the same. Unrevoked3 provides root, along with the ClockworkMod custom recovery, which is used for flashing ROMs, kernels, etc. Unrevoked Forever is part of Unrevoked3, and merely provides S-OFF. S-OFF will allow you to flash unsigned .zips from HBOOT, such as a different recovery, or a new radio. Either way you can revert back to completely stock, unrooted, S-ON in the future if you wish.

    Droid 3? Root? CM7? Pardon my skepticism, but since we don't have root yet less than two weeks after release of the Droid 3, it seems unlikely that there is a working CM7 for it.

    He most likely meant Droid 2. But you are correct - no CM7 for the D3, Just Emilio Esteves cranking out a paycheck.

    (Isn't D3 the one where the rag tag group of kids wins the championship against all odds? I get them confused.)
    Some say that his dormant chips were left that way for YOUR SAFETY... Others say that once "turned on," he can not be turned off... All we know is... He's called The Stig.

    My bad, Droid 2. Sorry about the key stroke error.
