myTouch 3G Slide owners, we have some good news for you! If you've been itching to root your devices, now you can, thanks to Android hacker eugene373, who released his root instructions today.

The process involves booting into recovery mode, pushing the “update” to the phone manually, and installing the root. Users of the HTC Droid Incredible may recognize that “… it's the same root method as the HTC Incredible... I just added SU & fixed the script, plus figured out how to get it to write to system…”

Android hackers initially expected to have a root out for the phone’s June 3rd release, but it proved more difficult than they had anticipated to provide a bug-free solution.

Rooting provides users complete control over their phone, which provides numerous benefits. You can find more information about rooting, backups, and custom ROM’s here:

As always, if you are trying this root method on your myTouch 3G Slide, go ahead and share your experiences in the comments.
