Well I have done a lot of looking around and reading. I am completely new to rooting, I have no experience at all.
When I got the phone about a month ago, made sure it was fully charged and then turned it on. About a half hour after I turned it on it wanted to update, so I let it.
If I remember right before the update my brother told me that it was the HTC Droid incredible 2.2.
Froyo, I have no idea how to tell if my phone is that or not. I have been in the phone settings and looked at hardware and software and so on.
All resources I have found talk like you should already know what your doing. I am a major computer geek. I know them inside and out, but phones and rooting is totally new so any help I would appreciate.
It said 2.2
So I guess I don't have to go back to stock cuz I'm already there? Wonder what that update was.
Guess I find beginner tutorial somewhere? If I can find one. Lol
Yea, I spent some time on it this morning. I only gazed at it yesterday a little. I will probably do the tutorial on stock 2.2. I still might need 2 ask some questions about what it says to understand it.
Is there anything I should have installed on phone or computer before I plug phone into usb to start rooting? Also, should I have any program running before I plug phone in? Or should I plug phone in before I install or run any program on computer? The tutorial doesn't say anything about the above questions, so I wanted to ask.
