Droid Incredible rooted

The Droid Incredible has been a tough nut to crack, with rooting eluding the hacking elite (and thus the rest of us mere mortals, too). But it looks like some real progress has been made, and Shadowmite says a couple of phones have been rooted. It involves getting adb to work while in recovery and needs some pretty precise execution in terms of timing. It ain't pretty, and it's not ready for the mainstream, and you might end up crying in the end. But fear not, Incredible owners, work continues. [XDA Developers via Android Central Forums]
