Default My Driod Inc 2 stuck on HTC screen after new ROM

HI friends,

I got an verizon HTC Driod Inc 2 and unlocked to use on different network.

I had installed ClockworkMod recovery v.5.0.2.0 and followed the steps given on following link youtubecom/watch?v=Wag3W3Hq2u4&feature=plcp
to root the phone and before that I had unlocked bootloader from HTCDEV site by getting new token.

then I tried some root explorer and file expert application installed on my phone and tried to remove verizon builtin apps. I am not succeeded so I thought of installing new rom and in a hurry I had downloaded CyanogenMod 7.1.0.1 from clocckworkmod site under rom manager section. I had installed by copying the zip file on my sd card and gone to clockworkmod bootup screen and say install from sd card. Once it done, my phone never boots up - Its still on HTC screen

Please help me in this to recover or to go back to original rom on phone. Bad thing is on hurry I haven't taken backup of system rom.

HBoot screen details:

On that HBOOT screen, scroll down to RECOVERY and select it to get to your recovery. But first I would download a known good rom such as this one and flash it from recovery.
I would recommend never installing anything from Rom manager as many people seem to have issues with it.
Always do your homework before flashing something, by which I mean read the forums on the rom first and make sure it will work for you. Not all roms are fully functional.

If this doesn't work, you can always download the back-to-stock PG32IMG.zip and place it on the root of your sd card, then power up the device while holding the volume down key to boot into your bootloader/hboot and it will bring you back to factory stock.

Next time you root, make that NAND backup BEFORE you do anything else. That way you can always return to it without all this hassle.

You are the GOD, my mobile is up and running now.

But the problem is I am not able to use wi-fi.

first I installed GB Sense M 5.0.1 Ext4 Version w/ Drell's #21 Kernel but my phone stuck on HTC screen again. Then installed GingerBangSense 5.0 "M" - It was up and running now.

What to do for wi-fi now and the search icon is not enabled. How can I install the sense 3.0 and other stuff apart from recovery mode. please share the link with me.

htcdev is not able to install kernels from recovery. as such,unlocked s-on is a PITA to deal with.

your wifi is not working due to a kernel/module mismatch,since htcdev couldnt install the matching kernel for the rom you flashed.

i would not worry about your wifi on this rom. since you are allready htcdev unlocked,follow the directions in post #2 of this thread to downgrade to a firmware that is supported by revolutionary: http://androidforums.com/incredible-2-all-things-root/592064-guide-how-manually-downgrade-firmware-build-6-01-605-05-a.html#post4740095

once you are s-off,you can update your baseband,and flash the rom of your choice,and things will work correctly.

i would very strongly recomend going thru this effort to become s-off.

your other options are:
1)fastboot boot your recovery every time you want to flash a rom

2)manually install a matching boot image with fastboot commands every time you want to flash a rom

1 is easier than 2,but both will require you to be hooked to a PC to flash a rom OR restore a backup.

holler if you have questions

Hey Scotty, what was it that gave away that he was Dev Unlocked? I saw the s-on just now (wasn't actually looking for that stuff before), but I would like to know what gave it away for you?

Sounds like your bootloader did not relock. What does hboot show? Unlocked,or relocked?

The talk of tokens,s on,and simply seeing similar posts in other forums.

The ability to flash roms from a permanent recovery with htcdev is commonly misunderstood

you will need to relock the boot loader.

Did you miss this command in the directions:

Fastboot oem lock

sorry for the short replys earlier,its hard to go into much detail on my phone

the module/kernel mismatch is common,when a rom similar rom is flashed,wich can use the current kernel to boot. the user thinks the rom installed successffully,and doesnt notice the kernel didnt chagne,resulting in errors. very different roms simply wont boot,casuing not only fustration,but panic

awsome! glad you got it sorted. unfortunately,the inc 2 hasnt been my daily driver for quite some time,so im pretty out of touch with available roms.

i personally dont care for htc sense,and am about having the latest and greatest,so at this point id be looking at AOSP jelly bean based roms,like cm10. but they may still be missing some functionality,its all about your personal preferance,and what you have to have,and can live without.

best bet is to read thru the roms modifications,buglist,and look at screenies if availble. pick a few you think you might like,and give each one a few days. you can always nandroid backup to a particular one if youd like.

there are some very knowledgeable users in the inc2 forums,like bberry and ahtiestrev,that can likely be a lil more helpful when it comes to rom specifics

I tend to stay on my favorite CM7 rom by CondemnedSoul. Check the last page for working links to version 1.4 or 1.5 as they are the most stable and fully functional. I get amazing battery life and speed out of that one (I recommend flashing aeroevans .8bfs or .8cfs kernel after installing for extra butter).

If you must have CM10 or Jellybean I recommend Darkstunna's here. It is one of the most stable JB roms you will find. ICS, check out this one, I hear good things but haven't tried it myself.

Understand we still don't have the source for ICS or JB, so they are almost never as solid as a Gingerbread/2.3 rom like the CM7 I mentioned earlier, or this near-stock with some nice tweaks by one of the more active Devs for the DInc2.

I don't mean to speak ill of an amazing rom, but i would recommend staying away from the Viper Rom just for now. There have been some issues with some people (including me) being unable to run any ICS or JB rom after having flashed the Viper Rom. Keep your eyes out for news there.

Have fun.

files have to be of the correct format to be flashed that way from the bootloader. all the rom downloads will be flashed in recovery,as you did before.

-place on root of sd
-boot to recovery
-make backup
-full wipe(cache,dalvik,data/factory reset)
-install rom
-reboot

some AOSP roms will have a seperate flash of google apps(gapps) that youll need to do immediately after the rom flash.

CS is a great developer,his roms are awsome,im sure youll be happy with it. im not sure right off,however,if he has incorporated gapps into the main rom flash. if its not mentioned in the roms OP,then they prolly are allready built in

unfortunately,cm/aosp roms do not seem to be set up for gsm usage,despite the inc 2's world phone capabilities. i have used my inc 2 on t mobile,and i cannot get cm7 or cm9 to work either,so the prollem is not anything youre doing wrong.

you will likely just have to stick with stock,or stock based,roms in order to get a gsm signal. when i was experimenting with it,i found stock GB to work fine.

did wifi used to connect at your office? there are different types of wifi,if its never worked there,then maybe its jut the signal.

prolly my recomendation would be to run a stock ruu. there isnt one for th newest software,but you can OTA. heres the steps i would take:
-run an ruu. doesnt matter awhole lot wich one,you can even use the one you used to downgrade.
-do a factory reset from hboot
-use the phone normally untill it OTAs all the way tothe current build 6.01.605.5.(dont worry,s off wont disapear)
-once the phone is current,install recovery as a PG32IMG,or using the fastboot flash command,like when you first rooted
-install superuser in recovery,like when you first rooted

now run the phone 2 or 3 days,and make sure everything functiuons competely normally. assuming that it does,start trying custom roms again,using at first ones that are based on stock.

hopefully that will help make your falshing experiences a lil more enjoyable

I don't think it will OTA if it is unlocked and being used in India on a gsm network.

How about the Sense rom I posted by Nitsuj17? That should still have global capability intact. There is a global CM10 I linked to as well, though being CM10 it isn't FULLY functional. I think it is Daily driver capable though. I guess I would say go with the ruu like scooty said, or the Sense one I linked to for the safer routes.

My inc 2 is unlocked and otaed on t mobile the simlock state doesn't have any impact on the ota,nor does the carrier. If its on a completely stock Rom,stock recovery,and get to the internet,it can check vzw servers for updates. I've had plenty of unactivated phones ota over WiFi

Even if it doesn't ota,no biggie... Main suggestions are to factory reset from hboot with a stock recovery in place(not the same to wipe data/factory reset from clockwork),then run the stock software for a couple days so we have a good baseline for Wat works ans Wat doesnt in India,that we can compare custom roms to

The sense world Rom you linked looks like an.awesome suggestion

Hehe, oops.

Thanks for that, I had no idea! I have been under the wrong impression for some time now. Other than when I flashed an ruu on my DInc2 recently, I have never had an OTA. Even when I ran "stock" ROMs that hadn't modified anything like the otacerts file everyone seems to blame, I never got a prompt. Maybe I got an OTA without knowing it some night?

Thanks Scotty!

there are a few requirements that have to be met:
-be on a release build. leaks usually are not included in the update scripts,and will not get OTAs
-have all the system apps in place,and be fairly unmodified(addition of supersuser doesnt matter)
-have the stock recovery
-have not modified firmware. changing some firmware,such as the baseband,may prevent the ota

a custom recovery is not able to install firmware like the stock recovery can,and as such bad things can happen if you try and accept an ota with a custom recovery in place.

most custom roms are modified so that they never check for OTAs,for the above reason.custom recovery+ota=bad even if otacerts is still present,the rom fingerprint,or other files prolly have been modified. otherwise,you may have not gotten prompts simply becasue of mods that you had made.

if you were ever running stock,release builds,with the stock recovery in place,it is entirely possible you did get OTAs without your knowledge,they can be sneeky and even automatically default to install if you dont stop them!

glad to hear your wifi prollem is prolly not a prollem

the echo you describe could be a prollem with a custom rom,or simply an issue with BT or wired ear pieces/headsets. i got that alot when my friend talked to me on a speaker,or on a crappy BT. the baseband should not have any affect.

if you run an ruu,it will fix all partitions(Except s-off hboot ) so you wont need to do any seperate flashing,until youve let the phone OTA(or are sure its not going to) and you want to install root/recovery.

if you want to be rooted,but not install recovery permantly,just in case OTAs try and sneek in,you can easily boot your recovery instead of installing it with this command:

fastboot boot recoveryname.img

this will launch recovery into memory long enuff to flash superuser,and make a backup,if you wish. when you reboot,it will be gone. that way youre in no danger if an OTA tries to take over your phone.
