Why would you want your phone to be like an iPhone? The Inc is already pretty much the exact size of an iPhone & you want a ROM that makes it look like one too? Why not just buy one?

yup. whenever you run an RUU(.exe or PB31IMG) it will wipe your data,requiring re-setup when youre done.

id recomend not spending too much time setting 2.2 back up,as you really just need it to s-off. after you re root and have s-off,you can flash a rom that wont constantly hound you to update it

sigh...i can't get root. i need root.
why is it that moto's bootloader locked devices are so dam easy yet htc where the manufacturer gives users an unlocked option, acquiring root is so hard (and a chore). i've spent 4 hours trying to root this piece of garbage phone. i'm losing my a** on it...sigh.

Default Best damn guide!

Dude, mad props on putting this together and much thanks, I spent days (with wife nagging about neglect) trying to get this fixed and your instructions worked perfectly. This was a godsend, just wanted to let you know there are still others appreciative of this article even now.

Am I screwed? I've got HBOOT 0.92,

Running 2.3.4
Baseband 2.15.10.07.07

Build 4.08.605.2

Tried Unrevoked 3.22 following the instructions in this thread (and other copies of it) and I keep getting hung up. When Unrevoked gets to "rebooting into recovery", get an error from Unrevoked that communication was lost with the phone, try again. I did try again, many times.

Tried rebooting PC (Win7 64) too.

At that point Unrevoked stops doing anything, though shortly after (1-5 seconds) the phone does make it to Clockwork Recovery 5.0.2.0. However, none of the options do anything - clicking any of them just shows the hat background. Clicking again returns to main menu. The only way out of this is to pull the battery.

In HBOOT, I have S-ON still.

Fastboot: Off
USB Debugging: On
No other sync services installed.
Factory Reset'd the phone so no apps either.

Have already successfully rooted and flashed a rom to another phone - Incredible 2, via Revolutionary. Too bad Rev doesn't support Incredible 1 right now.

When you are in recovery, you press the trackball, not the power button to select options

The recovery should still be on the phone and you you should have super user in your app drawer. So you can just download rom manager or "quick boot" from the market to reboot into recovery.

first, thanks for the replies.

I've got Zysploit in the app drawer under downloaded, nothing else apparent. Still S-On, and now that I can manipulate ClockworkMod, I'm still unable to load any of the zips on my SD card. Tried renaming one to the PB31MG.zip - it read the file, unpacked it, and complained that it is older so would not install. So still on 2.3.4, still got some issues.

I've adb installed and set up from my previous root of the Incredible 2. Running it, it detects my Incredible 1 with
Quote:
adb devices
and
Quote:
adb shell
returns $.

If I then send
Quote:
su
I get permission denied, so that verifies I don't yet have super user.

Is the superuser app in the app drawer? If yes, you can try going into manage applications and clearing the data for it. If superuser isn't in the app drawer, can flash it in recovery. There is no need to rename files to anything specific when using clockwork to install a .zip file from the sd card.

Superuser can be found here:
Superuser

You will continue to be s-on until you follow the rest of the directions in the first post. After you get superuser access, you will then be able to rewrite the misc.img, then downgrade your phone to froyo, then get root access again, and turn s-off, then finally upgrade back to gingerbread . Simple right ?

just one little bit to add to that,you may have to try and use a few root only apps before trying to clear data from superuser. most folks report the clear data button being greyed out and inaccessible until theyve tried to run a few root apps.

after clearing data,it has worked for everyone,as far as i know.

if su is not in your app drawer,its no biggie... you can just flash it as sdraw described. the important part of the process,really,is getting the recovery.

...and I'm good.

Installing Cyanogenmod now.

Lessons learned:
recovery selection confirm: trackball, not power button. (different from INC2)
flash superuser from sd card before proceeding

question, i am considering using this thread...

[HOW TO] Fix the "Low on space" problem (in plain English) - xda-developers

it's the beginnings of your process of getting to 2.2 and then getting s-off.

i want to run this MOD, (located on a link on the thread)
"Convert2Ext4_no_data_limit_normal_dalvik.zip"

so that i can fix the Low Data Notification.
i see in your thread, post 629,

[How To] Root 2.3.4/downgrade and Get S-off

how to put in some code in mac's terminal program. is that step in the rooting process how you actually get from 2.3.4 gingerbread back to 2.2 froyo?

questions:

1. it looks like the directions on that thread work to simply gain root, is that correct? (but w/ s-on, right? that means that it's not a "permanent" root, correct?)

2. i downloaded a md5 checker, and the "recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-inc.img" seems to verfiy w/ your numbers, but my "Reflash.dmg," the unrevoked 3.22 seems to be different. is that because i got the mac version?

3. does anybody have the mac version's md5 numbers, just in case? i just don't want to mess up this root. (first time rooting)

3.5 how important is it that i double check the md5 numbers?

4. how "important" is it that i get s-off? will i notice a difference or anything like that? it's my first time rooting, period, so maybe i don't need to try this step yet?

If you follow the complete first post you will end up with s-off ( [How To] Root 2.3.4/downgrade and Get S-off )... The md5 for unrevoked is not that important, it's not installing anything that will brick your phone.

I personally believe it is worth the effort to achieve s-off because it gives you more options and overall makes having root easier.

[How To] Root 2.3.4/downgrade and Get S-off

how to put in some code in mac's terminal program. is that step in the rooting process how you actually get from 2.3.4 gingerbread back to 2.2 froyo? yes. the adb commands in a cmd or terminal window are re-writing the misc image of the phone,to trick the RUU into thinking that the phone has older software than what it is. thus allowing it to "upgrade" (downrade to froyo)

questions:

1. it looks like the directions on that thread work to simply gain root, is that correct? (but w/ s-on, right? that means that it's not a "permanent" root, correct?) wich thread? the one here on AF is s-off,permanent root.

2. i downloaded a md5 checker, and the "recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-inc.img" seems to verfiy w/ your numbers, but my "Reflash.dmg," the unrevoked 3.22 seems to be different. is that because i got the mac version?

prolly so. the mac version will have some different files,drivers,etc.

3. does anybody have the mac version's md5 numbers, just in case? i just don't want to mess up this root. (first time rooting)

when i download the mac reflash package on my pc,this is that i get:
Reflash.dmg 281308e1ed17dffd3d64ea68cb674406

not sure if that will be the same as what you got. if it is,you can pretty sure the download is complete and uncompromised. if it is different,i wouldnt say its bad-may just be something about downloading to a pc,not a mac.


3.5 how important is it that i double check the md5 numbers?
its definately a good habit to get into. as sdraw said,its not too big a deal in this particular situation. if youre flashing something like an hboot,radio,or a file that contains both(like an RUU) id place checking the numbers pretty high on the importance list

4. how "important" is it that i get s-off? will i notice a difference or anything like that? it's my first time rooting, period, so maybe i don't need to try this step yet?

i also feel s-off is well worth the effort,and of pretty high importance,as long as you use caution in what you flash. one thing you can do is wait a few days between root and downgrade,so you can become more comfortable. the task may not seem as overwhelming if you break it down into the smaller parts

thank you! SO, from what i can gather...

i can't really "harm" my phone during the actual rooting process, using unrevoked 3.22.

Like, it might not work the 1st time, but there is no real danger of bricking my phone during the root process, correct?

most of the dangers come from flashing a ROM that isn't working right, or messing up the flashing process, correct? or a bad radio ROM, etc?

Most of the time, the common problems are boot loops, and they are easy enough to fix, right? flashing back to the original ROM, the stock HTC 2.3.4 ROM will fix it, right?

and bricking, in actual usage means that it's messed up enough that it just lies there on your desk like a brick, right? so actual bricking is not common, right?

so the actual part about rooting, I don't need to worry about so much, right? am i missing anything out?

Like, it might not work the 1st time, but there is no real danger of bricking my phone during the root process, correct? there is always that "slight" chance,but this process using unrevoked 3.22 and some adb commands to change the misc image, the likelyhood of damaging your phone beyond repair are slim to none.

most of the dangers come from flashing a ROM that isn't working right, or messing up the flashing process, correct? or a bad radio ROM, etc? correct. sometimes partitions can get damaged and repair can be complicated to impossible,but 99% of the time an unrecoverable phone comes from a bad hboot or radio flash. biggest thing you can do to protect your phones internal partitions are check md5s of everything you download. i personally believe amon recovery to be a lil safer than clockwork,but thats just my opinion. making sure to verify your files by checking md5s is your top defense.

Most of the time, the common problems are boot loops, and they are easy enough to fix, right? flashing back to the original ROM, the stock HTC 2.3.4 ROM will fix it, right? correct. those are the most common issues,along with simply "hangning" at a splash screen,and occasionally booting to a non-working,unfunctional rom. all are easily repaired by restoring a backup,or flashing a new rom,or in some extreme cases,running an RUU.

and bricking, in actual usage means that it's messed up enough that it just lies there on your desk like a brick, right? so actual bricking is not common, right? correct

so the actual part about rooting, I don't need to worry about so much, right? am i missing anything out? correct. and no,i cant really think of anything you are missing. just download everything,get organized,gl slow and make sure outputs match by looking at my adb session. if you do get goofed up,dont panic,we havent lost one in this thread yet

I'm having quite a bit of trouble rooting my inc 2.3.4 (thought it would be a lot easier). I had numerous hang-up problems while using revoked, namely that I was continuously getting stuck at "waiting for reboot". I tried a lot of different things (updating drivers, uninstalling dropbox, etc.) and I eventually got to ClockworkMod Recovery v5.0.2.0 (not sure how it eventually worked). However, SuperUser is not in my apps drawer, and I am unsure how to progress.

Thanks in advance.

hey, i get that low storage notification, and it's still there... do i need to try and get the Low Storage Notification off of my phone before rooting? Unrevoked has a warning that if my phone is not working perfectly, it could ruin phone. just checking.

Hey guys I'm new here. just signed up actually. mainly thanks to this badass sticky! thanks to everyone!
Well my question is for scotty85...
I'm all good right now, completed all of the steps, but I was hoping you could give me a tip on where to go from here. I'm looking for a mod to all around improve my inc(obviously), but wanna focus on battery life, texting, and internet as I use them the most. I tried messing around with it on my own and it blew up in my face! had to start ALL over. so now I'm kinda apprehensive. if you could just point me to the "roms", "kernals" etc that would best suit my needs and with a little direction to how to install it all I'd gladly give you a tip! beats spending another 20 dollars on a card reader, and a new microSD...
THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE!

BTW, I had incredible HD XL when my droid crapped out last time. I liked it, but I think I messed up the process some how...

then... i get this screen. doesn't seem to be doing anything...

is this normal? what should i do?

sorry,the inc hasnt been my daily driver for awhile now,and im a bit out of touch with the available roms/kernels.

i personally like to run AOSP or "desensed" roms when possible,so i would check out cm7,wich is pretty stable,or even some cm9 based roms. tho be forwarned once youve tasted ICS its hard to go back to GB

the guys in the forum should definately be able to help you find a good rom/kernel combo. alot of it is just trial and error,to find something that works good for you,on your phone

no idea.... sorry. not sure if thats something related to being on a mac,or drivers,or what. maybe PM ginskella or post a topic in the forum about running unrevoked on a mac.

the other options,that i can think of are:
1)borrow a windows laptop or PC
2)you could try the "htc supertool" in place of unrevoked,tho it will not install a recovery
3)you can use the "zergRush" directions in post 2,wich do not utilize unrevoked,or any other rooting programs. only disadvantge is that you wont be able to install a recovery and make a backup,nor will you be able to use titanium to backup app data.

sorry i cant be of more help than that,i dont know anything about macs.

glad you got it. as you figured out,the error on your phone is no big deal. it comes somehow from installing the newest CW without the newest rom manager.

also,are there any tips or tricks you can share about getting 3.22 to run on your mac? what did you finally do to make it work? this info may help future mac rooters

hey! okay, this is what happened last night when rooting my phone w/ these directions,

[HOW TO] Fix the "Low on space" problem (in plain English) - xda-developers,

basically the first part of the directions here. i'll post this in case it happens to anyone else, so that they know what to do. and don't freak out, like i did, cuz i'm a noob.

i followed the directions for rooting, Step 8. i was doing the directions for 2.3.4.
after i clicked "OK," to root (DON'T unplug your phone and replug your phone when you see the warning screen, btw. that will mess up unrevoked. I am using 3.22, btw. just start the process over again from the beginning if you do.)

i waited and waited, like... 10 minutes? maybe not even that. you see Unrevoked go through a bunch of notifications and techno-mumbo-jumbo.

after that, unrevoked 3.22 said "done." however, when i looked at my phone, it was this strange screen that was black, had Turquoise Blue menu options up at the top, and white script on the bottom. There was this error message...

"clockworkmod revovery v5.0.2.0 (other stuff...)
wating for sd card to mount (other stuff...)
sd card mounded...
verifying sd card marker...
sd card marker not found...
checking internal sd card marker...
error verifying extendedcommand.
error processing rom manager scipt. please verify that you have ROM manager v.4.4.0.0. or higher installed
/tmp/recovery.log was copied to /sdcard/clockworkmod/recovery.log Please open ROM manager to report the issue."

i was a little worried, cuz it said ERROR! but i knew something "good" had happened, because It said Clockworkmod up (recovery?) top. after consulting my friend, he assured me that that was a good thing. i was in Recovery, and I wouldn't be in that if i was not rooted. Also, after reading the error message, it looked like it was saying simply that it could not find ROM manager. so, due to my awesome friend's suggestion, i made a back up of my current ROM, aka my current the Stock ROM, aka it's like backing up every single file and setting on your phone, from there, right in ClockworkMod Recovery.

I sat through all the back up stuff. from there, your phone reboots, and this takes a while, almost 10 minutes.

After it rebooted, I was back, baby! Stock everything showed up, all of my launcher settings and everything showed up, it was great! I proceeded to follow the directions using ROM Manager (I did have to try making a backup twice, the first gave me a permission error, but after that it was smooth sailing).

So, thank you!

I am 2.3.4 still, I haven't downgraded to 2.2 or gotten s-off yet, but i will, one day... I only just got my Rooted feet wet

NOW, if you have the low Storage Notification problem, you can try this mod. The thread i mentioned will contain information about how to fix it. it's called "Convert2Ext4_no_data_limit_normal_dalvik.zip" .


again, thanks for the help, hope this post helps.

I give up. I've tried everything and can't get my phone to root. I get to these steps:


-extract the contents of the unrevoked 3.22 .zip. open the folder, right click on "reflash" and run as administrator if possible.
-click on "file" in the corner of the relfash window
-click custom recovery
-navigate to,and select your "recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-inc" image and select it. at the bottom of your reflash app window, it should now say "recovery:custom" and "waiting for device"
-make sure usb debugging is checked ON in settings/applications/development.
-plug in your phone and place it in charge only mode. assuming you installed the drivers correctly,unrevoked 3.22 will start. let it do its thing. it will reboot a couple of times. when its finished,it may leave you on a blank screen. if this is the case,pull the battery and reboot.

and I get the error "Failed to flash recovery image.". Then the phone reboots a bunch of times and I have to struggle to get it to become stable again.

I just realized that I have a SLCD screen. Could that be the problem? I don't know. I've been trying to root this thing for about 5 hours now....

EDIT: Also, it appears that somewhere along the way I "upgraded" the hboot to 1.02.000. sigh...

not sure why youre having trouble with unrevoked. might be something on your PC thats interfering with it. you can try uninstalling htc sync,and anything else tthat has the ability to interact with your phone,and try it again. folks that have had similar issues have mostly just given up and used different computers,and then had success. wish i knew what was confusing unrevoked,or had some better advice to make it work.

failing that,you can simply follow the directions in post 2 "zergRush method". it does not utilize unrevoked 3.22 for the downgrade.

option #2 would be the htc supertool to try and get temp or perm root,then follow the directions to downgrade: HTC Super Tool: The Latest All-in-One for Your HTC Device | xda-developers

option#3 would be to htcdev unlock,use that to root,then downgrade(see my respoce to one of your other posts). if you want to go the htcdev route,lets keep the posts and help in zamkats thread.

dont worry,we will get you there

for now,im off to work.

I need help. I'm getting so frustrated with my phone. I've tried both methods and did the exact commands, but in the end I always get the same problem. I keep getting a [1] followed by permission denied and the command. This always happens when I enter ./flash_image misc /sdcard/mtd0.img . I don't know what to do so........HELP!

you have not provided near enuff information for us to help you. if you had unrevoked problems,then post 2 should have worked fine. if it didnt,you missed some steps or commands.

permission denied is becasue you dont have root access.

no,you do not need to flash a new radio(its not possible with s-on). you need to follow the directions a lil more closely,you are trying to run unrevoked 3.32 on GB,wich will not work.

you need to

-use 3.22 on GB,as per directions in post 1

or

-use directions in post 2

or

-use my other guide wich uitizes htcdev,and not any finicky root tools like unrevoked 3.32 or 3.22

i am not 100% sure,it looks like all your code is correct,and the files were pushed where they were supposed to,and run.

i suspect that its something with the sdk file youre using. maybe something is missing? did you dump your "tools" into platoform tools?

only think i can think of off the top of my head is use the mini-adb_inc folder instead of your sdk folder.

So use the mini-sdk that you provided? I just don't see how it could be the program. But I'll give it a shot!

if you follow the full process to dowgrade and get s-off,you can run RUUs or OTA(providing a few things are correct) and s-off will still remain,so you can easily re-root any rom or ota you come across by:
1)installing recovery
2)flashing superuser

does that answer your question?

My phone was once rooted and Unrevoked Forever had been used. Then I got the OTA which has cause myriad of problems. I have tried Hard Resets and soft and I cannot remove files or apps. I remove them or erase everything and when I reboot it is all back. I tried both methods. The first method I couldn't get the img to load. the ZeroG method got the img to load, but now the phone is stuck in reboot. It shows the droid red eye, then reboots, Quietly Brilliant, then says "Droid" and back to eye. Over and over.
