Can the Incredible be rooted after the Froyo update?

I wanted to root my Incredible for the first time only the Froyo update has already taken place. I tried Unrevoked 3.14 but it says failed to flash, will we be able to root in the future?

Thanks

shouldn't be too long.
if you want to root now go to xda and find the thread to downgrade back to 2.1. then you can root and go back to 2.2.

Re: Can the Incredible be rooted after the Froyo update?

Here's what I followed just last night, worked just fine.

Universal Windows USB Drivers (ADB, BootLoader, Disk Drive, HTC Sync) - Android Forums

freenode Web IRC (qwebirc)

So you rooted your Android…Now what?*|*Ian D. Owens | a web log

Don't harass anyone and also know that you are going out on a limb to do this since it's not been officially released. I spent about a day watching the chatter though, and after seeing several people to the Inc without issue I took the plunge. I think the remaining issues are related to other devices, not the Inc. I took the 2.2 OTA a week ago and then did unrevoked 3.2.

Re: Can the Incredible be rooted after the Froyo update?

It's now actually actually easier to go ahead and let the factory OTA take place before you root and NAND unlock because the OTA includes the 2.15 radio update which is required for many of the custom ROMs.

I rooted and NAND unlocked on 2.2 using the unrevoked forever 3.1, which has now been upgraded to 3.2. Already running Virtuous ROM 2.6 which is SWEET! I highly recommend using the custom adrenylyne Kernel also because it allows you to use SetCPU to change over and underclock settings. Really gave my battery life a huge boost!
