Jon have you downloaded the unrEVOked forever for the Inc yet? If not are you going to do it and then download the OTA from VZW and re root? I am on the fence on downloading unrEVOked forever and was looking for other peoples thoughts!?!?!

I haven't done it yet - I want to see if there are any unknown consequences of using it, or if they figure out how to undo it. If the OTA comes out soon, there's a good chance I'll apply it, unroot, get the OTA, then reroot.

I have the same thoughts, I have read up on everything regarding S-Off, but I am waiting to see how it works out and if in fact they do provide the option to go back to S-On. Let me know if you do apply it when the OTA comes out. I think I am in the same boot and will only apply to get the OTA and then re-root to get my Wireless Tethering back and also the ability to apply some ROMS and Kernals as I learn more about them...Still wet behind the ears when it comes to Android and I am learning by reading the forums and your website. Thanks for all the great information.

I'm using the unrEVOked recovery flash tool linked in JonAmerica's first post, and I've set the phone up as a disc drive, and enabled USB debugging. I open the reflash.exe, and all I get is the unrEVOked 3 logo, under that the Painless Root and Reflash slogan, and underneath it says, "Waiting for device. Please plug in now and enable USB debugging." Well, I already did that. What do I do?

Edit- I tried it in charge only too... but I didn't install the proper driver for hboot. Working on that now. D'oh!

And after installing the hboot driver and turning the phone off then on (by holding power/volume down again) I opened unrEVOked, and get the same message.

Are you using underclock or overclock? Kernel sounds like a good way to get my feet wet while I wait for OTA or a stable 2.2 ROM.

Sometimes I need long battery life but typically I am near my car charger since I am in field sales. Is there some type of kernel switcher or appropriate app. Or is overclock a SIGNIFICANT battery drainer as compared to stock?

thanks for insight in advance. These instructions worked perfectly. I found the key was patience. If something seemed stalled or like it wasn't working, just wait a moment.

Jon sir you did a fine job...after this bogus affair with waiting on 2.2 I am going back to my rooting ways like I did on the moto droid...your guides are great since I have actually bricked a moto droid before and I do not want this to happen again (was flashing like 2-3 ROMS a day haha) Anyways thanks again...you are a scholar and a gentleman

Hey man just a heads up...you can use setCPU to set profiles for certain situations in order to save on battery life/ prevent phone from getting too hot based on battery temp/battery level (i think)...hope this helps

Sorry. Two more questions. If I update the radio to try 2.2 and want to revert back, will my Original Nandroid backup (prior to radio update) also take the radio back to my original version?

B) Pper the 2.2 instruction it says reroot with Unrevoked. Do I also need to redo the drivers or just open the unrevoked exe?

Anyone else have issues with Titanium Backup? Mine does show any apps to backup though I have a lot loaded. BusyBox has been installed and updated and still it does not see any apps.

I have not issues running unrevoked or S=OFF, but titanium has never worked for me.

Thoughts?

It says very clearly not to change the name of my nandroid backup, but if I were to move the backup off my phone to save room. Then put it back in the same place later would that cause any problems?

I absolutely could not get my phone to autorun PB31IMG.zip I tried formatting it in fat32 via the phone OS. I used my PC to format in fat32 1024. It did then when I tried to access the card it asked me if I wanted to format it.

I formatted yet again with the phone OS. I see it check for updates and it even shows PB31IMG.zip on the white hsboot screen but doesn't ask me to update. It just sees it then gooes back to the menu.

Any other suggestions? I'd gotten the B@lls up t try the radio update and 2.2 and can't get past step 1.

P.S. Could I use Nandroid to format SD Card? Is it worth a try? I see that as an option in Recovery.

Got closer. I redownloaded the IMG zip file directly from adrynalin. The phone recognized it and there was a bar on the right like it was checking the status. But then it never asked me if I wanted to do the update.

Anyone have another link for the USB drivers? They report as being corrupt when unpacking the 6.09mb file.

Struck out so far (perhaps bad omen). Even though the USB file says corrupt, it unpacked. I tried to install the drivers and Vista 64 finds them an tries to install while the Inc is plugged in USB, but then says "can not install, file not found". I have debugging on.

Vista sees my Inc and sees the drivers and tries to install them, but errors out.

So have you jumped on the Unrevoked Forever bandwagon yet? Also have you update your radio? If so, what Radio are you running and how hard was it?

I agree, could not have gotten his far without all the help. I do have one question. DINC is running excellent now! updated radio, wireless Tethering is working great! Titanium is fantastic ..my final step is to do a full wipe. Question? will I lose "SuperUser" (Root)? when going to 2.2.?? when doing full wipe??

again thanks to all who have gotten me this far!!

Nope you will not lose Super User....Just make sure your radio is updated before doing this and do not update radio more than once.

2 other things came to mind..Titanium backup is great..after update go back in and load what you had to begin with..Also Rom Manager is excellent as well. it keeps track of your backups, and you will have an opportunity if things go bad to boot back into one that worked...

Bear in mind i am using "Unrevoked as well.

On removing bloatware, I can mv the .apk to app.disabled but I can't move the .odex. I moved the AmazonMP3 apk and it still remains functional on my phone. Any comment?

EDIT: WEIRD, it worked with CityID and I did the same thing, was able to mv the .apk but not the .odex, yet CityID is gone.

Question Couple questions bout Root n SD card

Sorry if this belongs somewhere else but I searched and didn't really see anything to help.

First question I just rooted my Incredible 2 days ago. I assume if I accept the OTA it will remove my root and there's not a new unrevoked that will work for Froyo yet, right? So I lose my backup and wifi teather.

Apparently there are ROMS that have a leaked version of FROYO but I don't know enough about them to know which of the many to choose that will work with all the features of the phone including the camera. Any advice?

Second I'm going to upgrade to either a 16 or 32 gb memory card but there are files and folders from applications I've installed on the standard 2gb card already there. Is it as simple as just copying all that stuff over to the new card or so i have to reinstall or do something differently when changing memory cards to the programs and databases still work?

Apologies for what are probably very simple answers but just trying to figure all this out. Didn't have as much to consider when I was on the iPhone.

Thanks!

Default waiting on bootloader; make sure driver is installed

Thanks for the set up instructions. I have been able to get farther with these than so far. But I am currently stuck in the unrevoked initial screen. It is "waiting for the bootloader; make sure driver is installed" mode and the phone has rebooted into the hboot usb plug. Everything is on hold at this point and I have tried installing new drivers etc, but cannot seem to get past this point. Any help would be appreciated.

I've been running [ROM] Virtuous v2.3 (8/29/10): Stock Sense/Froyo v3.21.605.1 w/Fixes & Enhancements - xda-developers and have been happy so far. The only bug I've noticed is that using Voice Search to do a "note to self" causes a force close. Other than that, I haven't hit a single bug. The instructions on that link are easy to follow.

For your SD card, copying everything will work just fine. Just be sure to format the new SD card as 32bit, not 16bit.

Default Steps

Ok.

I am sure this has been discussed a million times - maybe two. I have rooted my incredible 2.1 using unrevoked a couple months back. Everything works fine. I am a little nervous about unrooting (downgrading the phone) and I am completely unsure of the necessary steps to accomplish this task.

When I am able to get this phone downgraded, I would like to then apply the OTA update when it arrives. My question is, can someone provide me the steps necessary to completely downgrade/unroot the phone so that I can obtain the OTA and then re-root the phone when it becomes an available option?

Thanks in advance, and sorry to be a dweeb about this. Just nervous I will foul up something.

This all makes sense, but should I use the unrevoked forever before downgrading to insure that I am able to add wifi tether back when upgraded to 2.2?

Jon, the ZIP for an official OTA has been extracted and posted via Android Central.

Should users use this instead?

the version of wifi tether i got from the marketplace did not work either so i had to get to the wiki to download the correct app package to install.
i'll see if i can find the link when i get home

Here is the site to download directly based on the model of phone you have.

Ok..Got wireless tether working. Tried to update to Froyo with the file from the google website that was posted. After I apply the update and reboot, it stops and says "Process system is not responding." Then after a few minutes it will reboot and keep doing the same thing. Not looking too good..

Make sure your SD card is formatted 32bit. If it's the stock 2gb card it's not.

Should users use this instead?
That would work fine as well. The RUU and the OTA are identical.

Unrevoked3 installed superuser for you. If you updated using the RUU or any PB31IMG.zip file you'll need to install superuser yourself.

I was following your article and ran adfree and where you said there would be an error which was normal after you pushed Download and install host mine just said successful is this alright or did something not work right?

and yes everyone else I see the irony of asking if something didn't work right because it said successful rather than error

Same thing happened to me.

It said successfull and completed an update. Did not reboot but asked me to reboot to remove DNS cache..

Should we still follow #4-#9 or are we reaping the full benefits already.

The best way to test Ad Free is to see if your phone is now ad free. With A Rooted 2.2 Incredible it should installed from the market without any problems.

Unzip Google SDK download. You will see a folder called android-sdk-windows. Move that folder to the root of the c:\ drive, and rename it to sdk so that its location is c:\sdk.
Run c:\sdk\SDK Setup.exe (You will receive error messages, this is okay. Once the application is installed you can close all windows.

How do I do this?
