It appears yesterday’s unveiling of the apparent first root for the HTC Droid Incredible was a huge false alarm. Jake Day – one of the developers impersonated in yesterday’s hoax – has posted on his personal blog that he has not yet achieved root and assures us that he’s still actively working on it.
The poster over at AllDroid impersonated Jake with the username “Jake Day” (that forum thread and the one over at XDA has since been deleted by moderators). Jake, however, simply uses “Jake” at AllDroid and many other forums. Chalk this one up to immature kids in the Android community (or scammers looking to get donations for nothing) and move along.
If you would like to continue to follow Jake’s developments on the HTC Incredible, be sure that you get all of the information straight from the horse’s mouth by following his blog. There, you can ensure that you’re always getting the most accurate information you can from one of the top developers working on cracking the Incredible.
