Default I tried un-rooting, but not sure if I did...help?

Hey all,

I recently rooted, had some difficulties, and decided to un-root. Have since tried to root again, but my computer won't recognize Android in the Device Manager, leaving me stuck.

Is there a chance I didn't un-root correctly?

In the hboot menu, my phone says:

INCREDIBLEC XP SHIP S-OFF
HBOOT-0.77.0000
MICROP-0417
TOUCH PANEL-ATMEL224_16ab
RADIO-1.00.03.04.06
Mar 23 2010,19:36:22

Anyone have any ideas what might be wrong?

I really want to root correctly.

Thanks!

You did not unroot because you are S-OFF, turn it on by flashing this to your phone: http://downloads.unrevoked.com/forever/current/unrevoked-forever-son.zip

To flash s-on you need to root again, then flash it, then unroot again.

I tried unrooting also, everything seems to go back to the state it was before rooting except the S off does not go back to S on, I used unrevoked3 to root. Any Ideas on what I should do, I would like to go back to stock.
Thanks in advance

You need to use unrevoked forever to turn s=on. Here are the instructions on going back to stock 2.2 froyo:

Now I'm really confused. My issue is that since I unrooted incorrectly, I'm back to 2.1. I used the incorrect unrooting method.

If anyone's willing to take the time, what should be my step by step route this time?

I really hope I didn't mess it all up

Since you still have s-off it really shouldn't be that hard except for the fact that your computer is not recognizing your phone? Did you turn on usb debugging after flahing back to 2.1?
Taking no responsibility of course. Ultimately what I think you need to do is get your phone rerooted using unrevoked.
Then using clockwork flash http://downloads.unrevoked.com/forever/current/unrevoked-forever-son.zip
as stated above.
Then go here http://androidforums.com/incredible-all-things-root/181255-how-downgrade-official-2-2-a.html as stated above. And flash the 2.2 ruu file following the directions. And your done! Bone stock, current software and radio.

Thanks for the help everyone.

My question now, is, do I re-root for 2.1 or re-root again for 2.2, being that I'm no longer 2.2?

Just use the afforementioned link to load 2.2 You're trying to root again anyway so get the base 2.2 from there and don't worry about s-on. It has nothing to do with your objective. Re-root once you're at 2.2. You have zero reason to go back to 2.1.

I'm sorry, I'm really stuck on the details.

You mean, I should download the 2.2 update again, install it on my phone.

Then root with unrevoked forever for 2.2

And then I should un root with the link?

Sorry to be such a pest, but I really do appreciate and need the walk-through.

Thanks again!

So, I've tried rebooting with unrevoked forever, and after 3 tries, it says it wasn't installed, and that "this happens"

so frustrated...

Awesome! So, I'm rerooted but with 2.1-update 1 under software information.

For me to downgrade, do I uninstall as if I'm starting from 2.2, or starting from 2.1?

Thanks again for all the help!

What is your objective? To be on 2.1 or 2.2?

I am now unrooted with s-off.

I would like to be rooted with 2.2.

I can root, because I had to reroot, to unroot, if that makes sense. Since it's unrevoked forever, its still s-off, and I don't know if that's what's keeping me from being able to install froyo. So yeah, I'd like to be rooted with 2.2.

Help, please?

All you have to do is flash the PB31IMG.zip found here http://androidforums.com/incredible-all-things-root/181255-how-downgrade-official-2-2-a.html in hboot and root your phone again with unrevoked

Thanks for your help everyone. I've got my phone rooted on 2.2 (I almost didn't do this, because for two days, my htc 1500 battery didn't have to be charged but once on 2.1!).

I'm ready to install a rom. I really like that blue one...but it doesn't work on 2.2. *SIGH*

Thanks again!

What blue one? All the ROMS that are out for the incredible are 2.2. So if you mean a theme...some themes are not compatible with all Roms.
