Incredible Owners, Rejoice - First Successful Root Achieved On The HTC Droid Incredible By The Unrevoked Team

It looks like the Unrevoked team, the same one that brought you the one-click EVO root, has been playing around with some race conditions apparently present during the Incredibles' boot process, which allowed them to slowly and painfully root a couple of their phones.

The process is currently very manual and requires a lot of patience and careful timing but the Unrevoked team is not giving up, hoping to come up with a reliable method as soon as possible (they've been at it all day today).

HTC Droid Incredible VS Motorola Droid In A Video Schmackdown loves posting useful phone videos, and the latest one is no exception.

In this video, Wirefly compares the new HTC Droid Incredible (which you can get here for a better price than your Verizon store) to the Motorola Droid in a series they like to call "Schmackdown" (we won't even mention the cheesiness of the name here).

Here are the highlights from the video that I annotated in my favorite bullet point format:


  • Comparable size-wise
  • Motorola Droid is thicker and heavier
  • Motorola Droid has a physical keyboard while the Incredible doesn't
  • Both have a virtual keyboard
  • Speech-to-text on both phones
  • Both have a dual LED flash
  • 1GHz and 512MB RAM on the Incredible and 550MHz and 256MB RAM on the Moto Droid
  • The Incredible has an 8MP camera vs Motorola Droid's 5MP
  • No MicroSD preinstalled on the Incredible, though it comes with an 8GB internal storage while the Motorola Droid comes with a 16GB MicroSD card
  • Same buttons on the outside of the phones but the Incredible has a trackpad on the front while the Motorola Droid has it on the inside
  • Both have a 3.7" display but the Incredible has a 480x800 px resolution while the Motorola Droid has 480x854 px
  • Droid Incredible has an AMOLED display
  • Battery life on the Incredible is not as good as the Motorola Droid


  • Both are running Android 2.1
  • Incredible has HTC Sense (with additional apps and widgets) on top of Android while the Motorola Droid has vanilla Android 2.1
  • Incredible has Scenes which are like presets for your home screens while the Moto Droid doesn't have this feature
  • Incredible has some Flash support while the Moto Droid doesn't (though full Flash 10.1 support is going to come with Android 2.2)
  • Incredible seems to have a faster browser, probably due to hardware (both are on Verizon data network)

The video follows:

So, who wins?
