Call it a case of bad-timing. When VZW's newest red-eyed family member -- the Droid Incredible 2
-- hit the market, it was too premature to benefit from HTC's recent unlocked bootloader policy
. Rather than sit and wait for an official OEM retroactive solution to come, devs managed to crack the black beauty open and achieved some perm root and S-OFF goodness. With all that messy hacking business out of the way, the real ROM-flashing party's about to start courtesy of CyanogenMod7
and MIUI. If you're not familiar with the ins and outs of Android rooting
, but think you're game to give this a try, DroidLife's
got a wiki link to walk you through. As with any smartphone hack, the possibility to brick is yours to make, so enter at your own risk.
