First Successful Root Achieved On The HTC 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).

Nexus One Gets 720p HD Video Recording In A Patch To CyanogenMod

Nexus One is still alive and pretty much kicking, especially thanks to the community. Since Google won't push new features to it, the community has to.

First Cyanogen added support for 802.11n WiFi in CyanogenMod, and now about half an hour ago, an xda-developers forum member by the name of charnsingh_online announced that he made a patch for CyanogenMod which enabled 720p video recording in the Nexus One.

Dell Streak Rooted - Instructions Are Now Live

Paul O'Brien is an Android hacker with mad skills. He's the man behind many roots, such as the Legend and the Desire, and now he has also rooted the new Dell Streak.

Rooting instructions, using a technique Paul called Superboot, have just been posted to the MoDaCo forum. Recovery images are to follow soon. I will mirror them here (current version 07/Jun r1) but you should always double check with the post to see if they were updated:

Rooted EVO 4G Users Can Now Enjoy Unlimited Free WiFi/Bluetooth Tether (Hotspot) As Android-wifi-tether App Adds Support For EVO
Last Updated: June 12th, 2010

EVO 4G users, rejoice! As of a few minutes ago, you can enjoy unlimited free WiFi/Bluetooth tethering using the Wireless Tether for Root users (or simply android-wifi-tether) app.

The app's main committer Harald Mue, who doesn't even have the EVO in his possession, together with a community contributor Andrew Robinson (who does have one) have figured out what was going wrong with the EVO compared to other phones and together collaborated on a fix all within 2 days of finding the problem

Hey, wait a minute, wasn't the EVO released the same 2 days ago?

Nexus One users had their taste of Froyo already (check out what Froyo is all about for more info) and now Motorola Droid owners can get a piece of the pie too, courtesy of My Droid World!

Unfortunately, the update comes at a price, as there’s no Wi-Fi support in the current build. The reason for this is because the original kernel has been replaced to protect the identity of the source.

Updated: There Are Some Issues. UnrEVOked Is Here - One Touch Root For EVO 4G And Hero, Working Even After EVO's First OTA Update!
Last Updated: July 21st, 2010

Yesterday, we reported that the EVO 4G was rooted, right in time for the launch day. The root method, however, required a full wipe and was quite tedious.

Updated: There Are Some Issues. UnrEVOked Is Here - One Touch Root For EVO 4G And Hero, Working Even After EVO's First OTA Update!

The same hour the root instructions were released, a new root method, called unrevoked, was promised and scheduled to come out by midnight. However, Sprint's OTA update fixing the SD card issue also patched up the vulnerability that both root methods used.

If you are a Sprint Hero owner and want the latest official 2.1 update baked into a custom ROM with root, then you currently have only one alternative - the Fresh ROM.

Custom ROMs For The Hero

There are pretty much only 2 main Sprint Hero custom ROMs - DamageControl (by damageless and TrevE) and Fresh (by flipz). Both are very good, have an excellent track record, and great communities behind them.

If you've been waiting for official FM radio support in your Nexus One - and I know there are hundreds of you, then you will have to keep waiting, possibly forever.

One thing is certain - the official Nexus One Froyo release will not include FM radio support, told me one of the core Android engineers at the Google I/O conference a couple of days ago.

I went to Android Office Hours where everyone had a chance to ask core developers anything they wanted (I managed to grab 2 Android dev books there too - awesome!).

If you were hoping for a break in Android upgrade posts now that Froyos been announced, I’ve got bad news. During yesterdays web-centric keynote, Google announced the WebM project, and the folks over at Eurodroid noticed a tasty little bit of information on the FAQ page: a tentative release date for Gingerbread.

The FAQ in question states that WebM support in Android is expected in the Gingerbread release which is currently planned for Q4, 2010!
