Ok, I'm a little stumped. Gonna have to ask you to verify MD5. I know you downloaded it a second time but we need to rule this out. Instructions for this are in post #2 of this thread, the comparison MD5 is listed in the OP. We must rule out an issue with the file(s).

Yup, I verified it twice. Should I try flashing back to cwm or AR to see if I can salvage anything?

I'm curious what happens when you select recovery in hboot, does it bring up the stock recovery screen? i.e. ! inside of a triangle?

And you had adequate battery life when starting all this I assume?

Although you shouldn't NEED to do this, I wonder what would happen if you tried a factory reset from within hboot? Maybe try that first even though you should have just had the world's most complete reset by doing this procedure. May as well rule things out one by one before we move further.

Here's my concern about flashing CWM...I think we can get that done ok but I'm not 100% sure about actually doing much with it without Superuser? I'm guessing it wouldn't allow you to wipe data/cache since typically access to them requires root.

So usually, you can go to the market and get Superuser but not in this case. Also, you can push it with ADB but I don't think that'll work since you're limited to hboot. You may however be able to do so using using fastboot. Thoughts?

Yes, plenty of power. I just tried the factory reset from HBOOT and flashed again, same boot loop. I'm sorry, thanks for your help so far.

So the factory reset ran ok though? Did you just try to boot it directly after that without running the file?

Yes, factory reset ran without issue. It boots directly after and goes into the same loop. I'm not sure if this is worth mentioning, but when it loops, it doesn't go to the HTC Incredible screen, but to the HTC "Quietly Brilliant" screen. At this point, what are the chances I could take this back to the Verizon store and get a replacement or will they be wise to my game (I guess I should fix the S-OFF first)?

have you tried starting in safe mode yet?

Other than that, it may be worth it to flash cwm and superuser, and then try installing a rom...

or if you have an extended warranty or insurance, flash s-on and return it.

That's the only thing I have left too. Like I said above though, how are we going to get him Superuser without boot? ADB won't push through hboot will it or am I remembering that wrong? Would he be able to even wipe data/cache/dalvik and just forget the rom flash at first or would that fail too do to lack of SU?

Superuser is flashable in clockwork... but I've personally never done it, so I don't know if it requires a boot up to take effect.

I *think* clockwork commands work without superuser anyway.

I think all roms come with superuser anyway, so flashing a rom would also install it.

Now that I've flashed this stock rom about 1,000 times does this mean I need to root the phone again?

So long as the phone allows access to the various paritions without Superuser in place it could work. Only one way to find out BenRad...

Go here:
Inc. Recoveries | doug piston

Load up CWM, I'm suggesting 3.0.0.8. Make sure it's named to PB31IMG just like before. Get the other one off the card first, then put the CWM recovery on the card and load through hboot. Once you get that done, reboot. Assuming it'll loop again so then pull battery and go to hboot, go to recovery which should then be CWM. I think the first thing you should do is just wipe data/cache and dalvik cache (under advanced menu in CWM), then reboot to system. Maybe the CWM wipe will be more effective.

If that doesn't cut it, we try loading a rom. How's that plan sound sdrawkcab, worth a shot?

Well, I was able to get the phone up and running again by flashing cm7. It's having a couple hiccups right now, but it's getting there. Thank you, iowa and sdrawk, for your help.

Bleh, now cm7 is acting up.

Cool. Did you do a nand restore or load from scratch? What's the hiccups, anything major?

Well, it's a step up... your situation sounds similar to one I had some months back (I couldn't boot into any sense roms). After a week of messing with it, I ended up returning it for a refurb.

After leaving the battery out overnight, it's still a bit of a mess (random reboots). I think I'll try getting it back to somewhat working stock (like yesterday) and take it back over to the Verizon store.

Does this method work for the OLED version of the incredible? I have the OLED version and I do not want to mess up my phone by using a method for the SLCD version.

The reason I am doing this is because have the boothang problem with the cyanogen mod, so I can't boot up, also clockwork mod revovery will not work either, it just gets stuck at the clockwork mod logo. So this is basically the only hope for my phone, can I put the file on my SD card with a card reader? Because I can not set it to disk drive mode? Because it will not boot up.

No problem with using on your phone and yes you can use the card reader to place the file there and format the card to FAT32 for that matter if you haven't already. BUT...before you do this, can I ask about Clockwork? You saying you select recovery from hboot and it instantly goes to a logo or you're trying to make a selection once in Clockwork and then you get the logo?

When I select the recovery option from HBOOT, it goes into the clockworkmod recovery screen and will let me select any of the options there, but none of the options work, they just get stuck on the clockwork logo.

In hboot, you use the power button to select items. However in Clockwork you use the trackpad button to make selections. The power button brings you backward one menu in CWM. If you use the power button on the main menu, it will bring up the logo you're talking about. So I think you're fine. I would recommend doing a full wipe of data/cache/ and dalvik cache (under advanced menu), then reload the rom from scratch. If you don't typically use CWM to load roms the steps are:

1.)wipe data (factory reset)
2.)wipe cache partition
3.)wipe dalvik
4.)install zip from SD card
5.)choose zip from SD card

Now navigate to the rom on the SD card (you may need to place on there if not already present). Select the rom and flash.

6.)reboot to system

Doubtful that it will get repaired without the full wipe and reloading CM7 from scratch. However, you can try to just wipe cache/dalvik cache and see if that works. If it's still acting up, then do the full wipe using the steps I laid out earlier. If you have titanium backup or a similar app, you can restore apps or apps + app data and save a ton of time. All you'll have to set up again are the usual system settings and cyanogen settings.

Default Work on unrooted?

Will this work if the phone isn't rooted? I updated it when prompted for the update. So many problems since the update, making the phone almost unusable. Bluetooth doesn't stay connected. Constantly getting low on application space errors, even after moving all apps possible to SD card, deleting 5 other apps, deleting text messages. Every day I have to delete data from the 1 or 2 apps I can actually use in order to send/receive email. And I have a ton of space available on the phone and SD card. Before the update I had this problem occasionally, now it's daily, I can't use any apps.

No, this will not work on any phone running 2.3 (gingerbread) unless it was previously rooted with s-off.

No but you should definitely try a factory reset if you haven't yet. Often clears up many issues associated with an OTA update. Then again, this particular update has been especially troubling to some. Still worth a try though.

My company wants to pay me for using my personal smartphone, but they won't allow rooted phones, so I had to unroot mine.

Just finished using this method, and it worked flawlessly.
Completely back to stock now, with S-On.

Thank you!

Thank you!

After setting up company email on my phone, and now knowing what is involved to do so, I can't imagine what difference it would make whether I'm rooted or not, or how they would even ever know.

And I am missing Gingerbread a lot at this point.

Is there any reason I couldn't re-root my phone at this point?



Edit:
I didn't wait for an answer. I tried it and it worked! YAY!!!

haha, yeah you can go back and forth as long as you root and flash a GB rom. That way you can get back to Froyo with the downgrade method. This is why I always like to flash my way forward instead of OTA's or RUU's. It keeps open the option of going backward the easy way if need be for some reason.

I agree.
And as old as the Incredible is now, I doubt there will be anymore OTA's anyway. I will continue to run OMGB and be a happy camper, until my contract is up again (a year and a half from now), at which point the newer phones are probably so awesome I won't have any desire to root and/or rom. :-)

Wrong thread. This file/method is for an HTC Incredible. Your Evo certainly uses a similar method. Check the Evo forum for your solution.

We are in a strange position here because I just updated this thread as of this writing. The links are now for stock Gingerbread. However, we can still fix your phone. Need to know a few things. Can you pull the battery and still get to hboot? If so, are you still s-off or not? What is your final desire here, get rid of root for good? Do you care if you end up on Froyo or Gingerbread in the end?

I can still get to hboot (0.92) and says s-off. I don't care where it ends up as long as its stock since I need to sell the phone.

I re-flashed my old rom (stock plus GB) and it starts but has some force close errors and I can't wipe any data or programs....?

My advice copied from your other thread:

Sorry I didn't get the thread updated sooner but I just got my hands on the new RUU a day or two ago.
Will also add that when you follow the link for Unrevoked Forever (that link/page contains the s-on file you can download, gotta scroll down a ways), it says to rename to update.zip. You can ignore that and leave it named whatever it's called when you download it. Just place it on the card and flash it like a rom in Clockwork...Install zip from sd card, Choose zip from sd card, navigate to the s-on zip and flash it. No need to wipe anything for the s-on flash.

So I should flash the s-on? I just don't want to brick the phone completely from loosing root access if this doesn't work. Could you give me specific links to the steps you recommended? have been working on this for hours today flashing all sorts of stuff.

If you want a completely stock phone then you would need to flash s-on. Personally, it's HIGHLY unlikely that whoever buys the phone will know the difference so if it were me, I'd leave it s-off because that leaves you a few aces in the hole if you have problems returning to stock. While I consider it doubtful that you'll have major issues, I'm just sayin...

So anyway, go back to the OP of this thread. If you want to do the s-on thing, I link to the necessary page in the second paragraph or so. If not, remove ANY AND ALL PB31IMG files you might have on your card at this time and either use the new one I have linked now (Gingerbread) or use the RUU method I layed out as an extra option. Both methods do the same thing which is to unroot (except s-on) and wipe the phone back to stock, which now happens to be Gingerbread for most users.

Cool, I'll leave s-off then and try this again. Thanks a lot and Happy Thanksgiving! I'll post back after I give this a try.

Interesting. We are talking about an original Droid Incredible here right?

When in hboot, when you go to recovery, is it the stock recovery now or still Clockwork mod? Also, what Android version and radio does it say you're on at Settings > about phone?

Yep, it's an original incredible. I had "Stock Plus" Rom 2.3.4 with radio 2.15.10.07.07.

I have flashed all sorts of things today though including files in this op earlier. I just ran your program again but will check on recovery.
