We have some good news for HTC Droid Incredible owners now, as a group of hackers have claimed that they have successfully rooted the handset – meaning that an Android 2.2 port is surely around the corner now.
As reported from Phandroid, Jake Day and BoostdScoob from AllDroid.org are the people you should thank for the root. They have posted up an image showing the HTC Incredible in it’s rooted form – although haven’t posted any instructions on how to perform the root – yet.
Now that the handset has been rooted, users can expect a custom ROM of Android 2.2 Froyo to release soon, as that is likely to be the next task for the hackers.
Stay tuned and we’ll update you when we hear more details. Let us know your thoughts on the news.
