Welcome to the party, dx users have felt this hate for almost a year now. But htc obviously cares for us, not enough to give cyan a dev device, but they promised unlocked bootloaders for US, and i think if you remind them that they have created a beautiful device with amazing possibilities, they'll update it with the unlock key. They did mention that they already had updates made without unlock keys before they changed policy, so its a bit of a delay, seeing as how they have to reassemble those updates.

So hang tight, i think htc has you guys coming up soon

Oh and keep in mind, they are worldwide and run on android & windows mobile. They have A LOT of phones and users to tend to. They work hard for us, dont worry

I dont know about books, but if you google stericson android tools project you can find, somewhere, his google code page of codes and tools he and other developers have found that maximize efficiency. Just for when you get there

Well there is a fully working CM7 for the Incredible S(GSM Version)...hopefully that means a CDMA version won't take long. The only thing holding release for IncS is an S-OFF hboot.

I really hope it comes within the next month or so this is the longest I've gone without flashing something on my device since before the Droid 1. I've become addicted to root and die a little inside everytime I open my app drawer and see those Verizon apps

FWIW, HTC support emailed me back and basically said they're still reviewing their policy on phones previously released locked up. He also added that he personally hopes they decide to unlock them. At least it wasn't a blanket no...

That's a good sign but I just want it even if its a ruu you have to download from HTC and give them your imei I wouldn't care I just would love s-off though I'm glad to hear someone is getting close to getting the i-s gives me hope for the dinc2 but with that phone being on gb that could complicate things

Yeah with all this locked bootloaders its going to take time as it did with the dx, but there are very few devs even with the device, but it will come either with a update or a work around!

Ok team alphaRevx has been doing a beta on the Inc S and a couple others with a Linux based exploit. So far it looks good. Now we just wait for the DInc2 version to be worked on and for some of us Windows or MAC versions as well. Good news though as their exploit is working!
