    Anyone know if there is a root in the works for the Incredible S? I want GB and I dont wan't to wait. So if anyone knows of a root and ROM could you point me in the right direction? I am hoping there will be a Cyanogenmod for it soon.

    Thank you.

    He's working on it, apparently some guys from China have done it as well, but they haven't post any instructions on how they did it. I'm hoping to root my Incredible S as well, just picked it up on the weekend and is my first Android device.

    Part of me is regretting picking the Incredible S over the Nexus S...shoulda done more research as I wasn't even planning on picking up a new phone the day I bought my IS. I picked it over the Nexus S primarily because the Nexus S didn't support any memory cards ><

    I was thinking the same thing, but I have to say. I love the HTC Inc S design, plus it has a better camera and you have the expandable memory. Once there is a Root & ROM for it, you can run the same stock Android experience as you would with a Nexus S. The only thing lacking then would be NFC capability which is still some way off being a mainstream tech.

    Take heart from the fact yout Inc S is more powerful than the Sony Experia Play too

    Actually I heard some of Incredible S can root now, but it only for some machine what "S-off" in RECOVERY mode. But mine is on...

    Yeah they have been able to root the phone, but only some phones in Taiwan and China which were shipped with S-off.

    There has been a lot of progess in rooting the S-on versions though, it will only be a matter of time!
