I can reach the HBOOT USB PLUG screen on the Incredible, but running ./adb devices from platform-tools does not show any connected devices at this stage.
Thanks for your patience.
[Edit:] I do have the unrevoked Recovery Reflash Tool for Mac, as described in the original post.
i believe that on a mac,your phone is naturally,magically compatible,you dont need to install drivers
you can skip over the part about installing drivers.
start on step 2,and use unrevoked to root your phone. make sure to change the recovery if youre on an slcd,as described in step 2. i dont believe this part will be much different on a mac. youll still need to place the recovery image somewhere you can find it,then point the unrevoked to it.
then,as was said,directions for the downgrade adb commands are in post 629
