I've been doing a lot of poking about, but very unsuccessful so far :(

Tried the easy methods (your own VISIONary+, z4root and SuperOneClick), none of which appear to work

Tried alot but nothing worked so far, Shell root trough psneuter was easy.

Currently stuck @ the NAND-lock. did a (quick) try with a gold-card, but doesn't worked then. Will try again soon when i have more time and more rested XD

But since im a total Android newbie (system wise) im a little stuck. Know my way in linux pretty good, but its not the same... :(

Hopefully some one like you Paul, is willing to help to take this little phone down and get all the rights we want. Pm me where i can get a little more support (like IRC or some ways to try) to get this done.

Will make a report of what i tried and what happend with every method soon, so we wont try the same thing all over again.

Greetings Timbo007up

Cool that psneuter works at least... I assume the kernel module method doesn't work then for S-OFF?

I looked into that method, but I couldn't find enough info about what to edit to happily start pushing files to my device, I didn't really wanna end up with a brick! If you can point me to where I can find some info on what I am editing and what it changes I will happily try it

This might be a stupid question, but is trying the gfree method described here worth giving a go, or is it a sure fire root to have a nice shiny brick?

@Paul

Did you try/consider XTC clip on your Incredible S!?

Wondering if it will do the trick?

Tho I am not a programmer and possibly will never join the team, I am willing to help by reporting bugs~ Just 2 days using my IS, I found:

1. Voice Cancellation incorrectly activated when a normal headphone is plugged in. The other side cannot hear what I say as my voice is canceled when I am talking to the phone's mic during a call. I heard some other devices have the same problem, and can be fixed by disabling voice cancellation if the device is rooted.

2. The toast message of [Fit to screen] and [Fit to video] are somehow mixed up during video playback using stock video player. The function and the icons are correct, just the toast messages aren't.

That is the only reason I am not buying it.

I am never going to use an unrooted phone again, I need my firewall and other protection from all the crap on the internet.

I assume you were one of the lucky ones to purchase an already S-OFF device.
