While I love gadgets, I’m never content with just using them for their intended purpose. Years ago, when I purchased an original Xbox, it wasn’t long before a friend helped me mod it so that I could install Xbox Media Center and stream videos from my PC to my television. When I got my hands on a Nintendo DS, I modded that too, and afterward used it to watch videos, played MP3s, and read Ebooks. And now I’ve rooted my HTC Incredible so that I can tinker with it in ways the manufacturer never dreamed – or did dream of, and then purposely restricted. Either way, my Android phone is now rooted and I’ve constructed this little guide so that you can join in the fun.
