It had to happen sooner or later. The Unrevoked Team devs over at the Incredible forums have finally rooted the HTC Incredible. XDA member Shadowmite says in his thread that they have successfully rooted two devices, but at the moment it isn’t a process that is easy to replicate. The details are rather scarce and it seems that the process is actually rather complex, so until the process has been perfected, you may want to avoid trying it yourself if you are not too familiar with rooting.
I will add more to this as we get further, thanks go to the Unrevoked devteam!
Before this goes nuts. Yes, we got two phone’s rooted. I will update here if we find a way to make it likely and/or with more details. But suffice to say, at the moment its not very repeatable. We are working on many methods still, but this will be useful in many ways.
Instructions here (THIS IS VERY HARD TO USE!) (NO, YOU DONT NEED TO DOWNGRADE):
