Thanks for this guys! I successfully rooted and installed CM7 RC1 last night. Hit a snag when i couldn't find the CM7 zip on the sdcard... apparently ROM Manager buried it somewhere not immediately apparent. Found it in the end (and got my own copy onto my SD card) and all is good!

- Stock 4.02 Rooted
I posted this yesterday, but I don't know what happened to it (it disappeared), I am rooted now, and I can't find an straight answer to the following question: When the next OTA comes out (i.e. 2.2.1 or 2.3):
<1> Will the update still be pushed to our phones (Incredible),
<2> If so, will it harm the phone (or un-root it?)
<3> Will we have to un-root to get the update
<4> Is there an easy way or app to permanently stop the nagging when the update comes out
Please also note, I do not want to run a custom Rom, I am happy with my setup now. Thanks
(Moderators, if you move this post, please tell me where, thanks)

These answers are based on you running a stock rooted ROM.
1) Yes you will get the update notification
2) If you have made any significant changes to the system or bloatware, the update will most likely fail and you will stay on the old version. There is the possibility that the update will work and yes you will most likely lose root. As a general rule, if you are rooted DO NOT accept the carrier updates.
3) Yes, the best way to accept the update is to restore back to full stock, un-root and then let the update happen. You will most likely lose the ability to re-root until Unrevoked or someone else figures it out for the new RUU.
4) For the Froyo update there were several posts that gave a key sequence that would disable the notification. If you search this forum for Disable Update Notification you should find it.
Hope this helps.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.

so for the DInc
I have 2 questions before I proceed with attempting to root.
1. So there is a good chance that Unrevoked 3 turns the S-Off with the Dincs, so I can stop after Step 6 in these instructions? If so that would be great.
2. After I load the Hboot drivers on my phone should I restart the phone? What should I do there?
Thanks so much for all of your assistance and for the time that you are taking to help out us less tech savvy people.
Have a good one!

If your phone is S-off you will not need to run unrevoked forever to check just boot in hboot and it will tell you on the top of the screen.
You will do your backup once your done rooting just boot into recovery and choose the backup/recovery option then select backup current.

Ohh and this is before installing ROM Manager from the market...(in other words I don't need ROM Manager, correct?)
...And say I do need to use Unrevoked forever...Should I do a stock nandroid backup before or after installing unrevoked forever? What do you recommend.
...And another question...this has been killing me but I can't find the info anywhere... Where did the name "NANDroid" come from or what does it mean? The "NAN" part throws me off...
Thank you so much again Larry!

No you don't need to download ROM Manager but IMO it's a great app so if I were you I would. I use RM to make my nandroid backups.
I would do a stock backup, making backups is a very good thing because you never really know when your going to have a problem and to restore to one.
Not really sure where the term nandroid came from you try doing a Google search to find out.

I'm about to root RIGHT NOW lol so I just want to cross all my T's and dot all my I's.
A couple more things...
Backing up the stock 2.2 rom before or after S-on or S-off... or does it matter?
And... regardless of not using unrevoked forever to go S-off... Do the instructions on going S-on, in the unrooting, and stock recovery post (3rd post) still apply?
You rock Larry! Thank you!

Can you try re downloading using your computer then mount your sdcard and drag the the ROM over. Not sure why your having a problem I have never tried downloading a rom using rm. Make sure the rom in on the root of your sdcard and not in any folders. If you find the rom you downloaded is in a file on the sdcard move it to the root and try again.

A NANDroid backup is a backup of the NAND memory section of the device, it's been "droided" because it's Android and geeks are funny that way!
Hope this helps!
