100% positive... Even looked, for the millionth time as soon as i read your question. Even made sure phone stayed lit up through the whole process. Could it be anything to do with the PB31IMG, or just mtd0.img at this point?

actually,now that i take a closer look,you are just missing a coulple commands. you need to chmod 0755 /data/local/flash_image

before you can ./flash_image misc /sdcard/mtd0.img

when you are doing the commands,look carefully at my codebox in post 1... yours will need to look like that.

if you have run thru all this once allready,you can possibly just boot to bootloader and provided everything you did was correct,and your PB31IMG is on the root of your sd card(not internal storage) then it will flash the downgrade RUU.

back to work,but ill try and keep watvching

Yea, missing the chmod was just an oops on that one. So, I did it again, made sure I did Every line & same results. My only option left at this point is to try manually boot to bootloader. I'm just scared of something bad happening, if it Doesn't work. But oh well 'eh. I am curious if/how I will know if it works?

UPDATE

Manual reboot to bootloader Failed. I "think" it said it could not findPB31IMG (somewhat quick to go away blue/green words, after I chose fast boot(which than takes me to where I can "shut down", which by the way... I am having issues for a minute now, not being able to actually shut down(just reboots)... So anyway, I have PB31IMG named PB31IMG.zip & No, it's not being read as .zip .zip

I'm starting to feel hopeless... =(

And you are definitely formatted to fat32?
At this point it would be worth the effort to format it again and don't use the quick format option.
As mentioned a bunch of times in this thread, the only reasons the phone won't see a PB31IMG.zip file on the root of the SD card is either the file is named wrong or the card isn't formatted to fat32 properly(could also try a different SD card).

As for trying a different SD card? Mine isn't removable.

Why isn't your sd card removable? every incredible has a removable sd card. Take the battery cover off and there is a slot where the sd card is.

Ok... so reformatting got me to the reboot step... But the PB31IMG.zip file isn't being found. I had it named with .zip in the name, as i though was supposed to & besides, if i didn't, my phone didn't see it as a zip. And no, it wasn't .zip.zip. All I can think to try at this point is taking the .zip off, as i don't have the money for a new card, at the moment. Thanks bunches for the help though! Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Also, is it normal for the sd card to have two different drives?

UPDATE

Of course renaming it without .zip didn't work either. So, must it be my sd card??? Tell me it isn't so! =(

are you 100% sure that you put PB31IMG onto your sd card,and not your phones internal memory? 3 drives will typically pop up when you plug in an htc phone... make sure to put PB31IMG on the one that is your removeable sd card.

also the card does have to be "FAT32" it cannot be just plain "FAT" or anything else.

Yep, 100% sure it's on the sd card. I have, checked & renamed the file with ES File Explorer, under /sdcard/. & yea, I figured out the third pop up is the phones storage & no, I at no point had put the file there. & yes, I formated it to Fat32 & Not quick mode. It found/recognized the mtd0.img so Hopefully that means it's not a card issue???

So, any hope or doomed to buy a new sd card?

yuo should not have to buy a new card. /sdcard/ on file explorer may not be the sd card. wouldnt hurt to pull the card out,put it in a card reader,and make sure that where the file is.

as was said,the rules for PB31IMG to flash are simple:
1)root of sd card
2)proper,zipped file(leave zipped,make sure md5 sum matches)
3)sd card formatted FAT32
4)proper name(phone must see PB31IMG.zip so name with windows to "PB31IMG" )

i know you have checked and double checked,but one of those things is not right if its not finding and checking the file.

an alternative since youre becoming fustrated might be to run an RUU on your PC,its alot more straightforward: download,run as administrator(if possible),then follow on screen prompts and plug in phone when directed.

download this RUU: http://pvillecomp.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/Images/RUU_Incredible_C_Froyo_VERIZON_WWE_3.26.605.1_Radi o_2.15.00.07.28_2k4k_NV_1.70_PRL58006_release_1520 16_signed.exe

wich was found on: Stock Images | PvilleComp's

wich was found on: Stock Images | PvilleComp's
1)root of sd card - Will see...
2)proper,zipped file(leave zipped,make sure md5 sum matches) - Check
3)sd card formatted FAT32 - Check
4)proper name(phone must see PB31IMG.zip so name with windows to "PB31IMG" ) If I name it "without" the.zip, phone doesn't see it as a zip file. So?

I don't have a card reader anymore. So what if I take the sd card out, boot back up & then see if ES Explorer sees the card then????

And... What than is the RUU for & what am I to do with it?

UPDATE

Removed sd card, booted, ES Explorer stated something like... "No sd card found or isn't mounted"... For me at least, that's pretty good confirmation that it is my sd card that it is seeing & where PB31IMG is.?.

I do get now, what you meant with naming it with windows.

AND...

What about disabling internet/wifi connection during the adb process, could this make any difference? I don't have service, just wifi.

Starting to think I should just abort Scotty.

Should I still have debugging, etc on for the RUU process? Maybe that's it? Though I doubt it. Humbug!

Sounds like Windows just isn't recognizing your phone. I wonder if the modified USB driver is just not compatible with the RUU? Worst case, temporarily download HTC Sync:

http://www.htc.com/us/support/droid-incredible-verizon/downloads/


Don't actually run the program once downloaded, it comes packaged with the stock Inc USB driver. Then plug in the phone in charge mode and with the phone still plugged in, reboot the PC. Should autodetect the phone upon reboot now that the driver is available. Verify that it gets detected and installs the driver.


Note: If you go this route and it works to perform the RUU, you may want to uninstall HTC sync before continuing with Scotty's root procedure as it may interfere. Honestly I thought your current driver should be working but for some reason it isn't so...may be worth a shot.

I will give that a try I suppose. However, windows did once already recognize & install the drivers & I haven't rebooted nor changed anything since than. Oh & if windows isn't recognizing phone, would I not have Not been able to do anything with the phone, via computer thus far? Yep, double checked & usb drivers are installed. Perhaps not good enough drivers vs. HTC's drivers?

And keeping fastboot checked & than run the RUU?

Tried to load with fastboot, when i do, it checks the PB31IMG & of course fails. Deleted said image from sd card, yet to be able to get phone to load into mode where i can chose fast boot, perhaps that is because it is loading with fast boot? Argh! Sorry for such noob questions. lol

Should the phone be in charge only or disc drive when running RUU??????

actually,above when i said "fastboot mode" i did not mean to have fastboot checked in settings. what i meant was,to power on into hboot mode via power on/vol down. then select "fastboot" with the vol rocker and power button. this is another bootloader mode.

put your phone int that mode,and then start the .exe file.

also make sure your phone is charged to 100%.

i know you think youve double checked everything,and i hate to keep beating you up about it,but i have never,ever seen an htc phone simply not find PxxxIMG files when the conditions are right. i dont know what else to say,other than one of those 4 things i mentione above is still not right.

did the md5 of your PB31IMG for froyo match the one i listed?

you might check it on your sd card with an app called "scary aliens android file verifier" wich is available in the market. this will tell if yuve got a good file ready to flash.

on the .exe file...
try this:
open your cmd window,change to your mini-adb_inc directory,plug i the phone,charge only,usb debug on, and type
adb devices

then,if you get your serial number back,
adb reboot bootloader

the mode that it takes you to is the fastboot mode i described above(this is another way to get to it) and is a white screen with colored letters,much like hboot.

now type
fastboot devices

if you get your serial number back,then close your cmd window,and run the .exe file as administrator.

Ahh yes, I know of this white board, with colored words you mention.
And I did go there & do that & than run & rerun the RUU, as admin. All I was questioning was if after booting to fastboot, before running the RUU, if it mattered if fastboot was Than checked on or off. Now, I presume that once i toggle & chose fastboot, that it boots phone back up & than looks no different than when phone is booted without fastboot? If not, than yea i am missing something.
And yes, I checked the md5 of the image (Again today) & it matches the one you state on your tutorial.
I guess I could be one in a zillion that this doesn't work for. Though, I do doubt it & I am hanging on to that tiny string of hope. And I appreciate your patience in not giving up on me, as I know too well, how hard it can be to teach someone something, when you're not right there to see it for yourself.

Did we ever verify that the PB31IMG.zip file is on the ROOT of the sd card and NOT in any folders?

If possible can you take a screen shot of whatever file explorer you use, showing where you have the file.

Screenshot App.

Yes, I am 99.9% sure that it is on the root of the sd card, as discussed with Scotty. When he questioned this, I removed the sd card, then checked back with the explorer I use & of course, the card could not be found. The only reason I am not 1000% positive is because you all make me doubt my own sanity. lol
I will try to get that screen shot posted here in a couple/few hours after I get my little man off to bed. I will be happy to post any screen shot that could help you all help me & that may help proove my sanity.

Yeah, I saw that post that it is definitely on the sd card, but want to verify that it is on the root of the sd card.

Honestly, I've never seen anyone have this much trouble flashing the file, no offense lol.
Even if the file is corrupt or broken ect, as long as its named correctly and on the root of the card(formatted to fat32)the phone will attempt to install it.

No offense taken... lol
I will do the screen shot in a bit but yea, def fat32 formatted, as other things wouldn't work until after i did. As for the name, I have tried not touching the name, to making it .zip(making sure it did no read .zip.zip). As much as I hope the screen shot proves me wrong, I will be relieved but extremely dumbfounded.

The crazier thing is that the RUU won't run.

Do you have another microsd card you could try? Otherwise, I'd try yet another format to fat32 using the PC to do so. And choosing the full format option rather than the quick option. I have seen situations where people have had to reformat several times before it took...I believe 4 times was the record if I recall. Took some patience on behalf of the other party.

Well, considering that it does neither, yes crazy. But, I have read where plenty of people have same issue of the RUU thinking there's no usb card, even when they buy a new one...

Nope, no other card, can't afford to go buy new one for a while either, cheap or not.. I will give the re-re-re fat32 a shot, if no other suggestions by tomorrow. I have a screen sht ready. Do I post it as a .png here or shall i use photoshop to change it to a jpg(assuming that will work)???

Well, after two long nights & days. I'm going to get some lost sleep. Let me know what form of screen shot works best for you & I will post it in morn.

Scotty & everyone else trying to help
...(thnx a million btw) I don't know if this makes a difference. However, I do have to type su & give permissions to get to the #. However, I have checked for root confirmation, with success. Could the root checker be wrong? Is there a particular root checker that you are absolute would be right? Or, is there anything that I have been able to do up to this point that assures you I am rooted?

nope... you are rooted no doubt about that.

unfortunately,being rooted has nothing to do with getting the .exe to run,or getting a PB31IMG to flash.

post your screen shot however you are able.

Here ya go...

Another question
as far as where the pb31img is & if the phone can see it... When I'm on the white screen, it briefly flashes in green, something about this file. Does that not show that it is seeing it? I try desperately to see exactly what it says but it goes so quick.

Man, that looks right. The card just isn't taking it. The brief flashing of green is normal, it will always do that. That's where it's checking for the update file but if it found it...like it should be...it would prompt you to load it by pressing volume up.

Just a guess here but has he tried using a different recovery? I see he has a folder with clockwork. I've never used clockwork, always amon ra and have never had any issues. Just a thought.

SHEW! Maybe I'm not crazy! lol

Ugh! I so didn't want it to be my sd card that was the problem, that's gonna cause a major delay...

My apologies madam. Had I looked at your screen name and not just the problems, I wouldn't have made that silly mistake. I'll ask Scotty about the recoveries and see what he's say's. It's just odd your having this issue.

Hey Scotty...what would happen if we flashed it via fastboot? Would it give a mainversion error and if so, could we bait and switch the mainversion to mactch the user's current setup to avert a fail?

After seeing the screenshot, I think the only thing left is, for some reason the SD card isn't taking the fat32 format. And would try another card or formatting through a card reader.

Failing those two options I would think you should be able to flash the file through fast boot.

if the misc img hasnt been rewritten,then it would get the main version fail. i was thinking of suggesting this,but wanted to make sure we had exhausted all other possibilities before i suggested it,due to not wanting to add more confusion to an allready fustrated sweetb

i am inclined to agree... if youre formatting the card in the phone via usb cable,it could be a usb cable thing,an sd card thing,or who knows what,but at this point it looks like for one reason or another the prollem is the sd card.

im still not sure why the RUU wouldnt run either,unless htc sync or something is running on the PC and screwing with it.

i think at this time we should try and flash the PB31IMG in fastboot. just to keep things,in-thread,ill put some real quick directions here:

1)put PB31IMG into your android directory(if thats still what mini-adb inc is renamed in your system). you dont need to change the name of PB31IMG or android to make it work.

assuming you leave it named PB31IMG then open your cmd window and enter(only bold type. blue are just additional comments):

cd c:\android change to android directory

md5sums PB31IMG.zip this will output the md5 sum of the file you will flash. make sure it matches 31bb1611a0fa8197d447c0438426717e

adb devices should output your phones serial number

adb reboot bootloader will boot you into the fastboot screen(white with colored letters)

fastboot devices will again output serial number

fastboot erase cache

fastboot oem rebootRUU

fastboot flash zip PB31IMG.zip

you will see a green line on your phone as the file flashes.youll see outut in your cmd window. shortly after starting you will get a "FAILED!(remote: 90 hboot pre-update! please flush image again immediately). dont worry,this is normal.

i am inclined to agree... if youre formatting the card in the phone via usb cable,it could be a usb cable thing,an sd card thing,or who knows what,but at this point it looks like for one reason or another the prollem is the sd card.

im still not sure why the RUU wouldnt run either,unless htc sync or something is running on the PC and screwing with it.

i think at this time we should try and flash the PB31IMG in fastboot. just to keep things,in-thread,ill put some real quick directions here:

1)put PB31IMG into your android directory(if thats still what mini-adb inc is renamed in your system). you dont need to change the name of PB31IMG or android to make it work.

assuming you leave it named PB31IMG then open your cmd window and enter(only bold type. blue are just additional comments):

cd c:\android change to android directory

md5sums PB31IMG.zip this will output the md5 sum of the file you will flash. make sure it matches 31bb1611a0fa8197d447c0438426717e

adb devices should output your phones serial number

adb reboot bootloader will boot you into the fastboot screen(white with colored letters)

fastboot devices will again output serial number

fastboot erase cache

fastboot oem rebootRUU

fastboot flash zip PB31IMG.zip

you will see a green line on your phone as the file flashes.youll see outut in your cmd window. shortly after starting you will get a "FAILED!(remote: 90 hboot pre-update! please flush image again immediately). dont worry,this is normal.

fastboot flash zip PB31IMG.zip to flash it again. it will finish this time.

after you get a "finished" message:

fastboot reboot-bootloader this will take you back to the white fastboot screen

fastboot reboot your phone should reboot

Sure did...!!! Now I'm just Very carefully reading how to install Unrevoked Forever... A bit worried that since the issue seams to have possible been my sd card, the unrevoked via sd card may not work. If not, what then?
