OK. I guess I was missing this in my frustration. This is everything from the HBOOT screen:

INCREDIBLEC XD SHIP S-OFF
HBOOT-0.92.0000
MICROP-0417
TOUCH PANEL-ATMELC03_16ac
RADIO-2.15.00.07.28
Jul 23 2010, 18:06:51

Basically, now that it's downgraded to the HBOOT-0.92.0000, I can't get it to accept the fastboot commands, so I can't progress to step 5 in Scotty's guide in the first post.

I also can't get it to accept the RUU from HTCDEV, so I don't know how to progress, because I can't even start over.

since you are already s-off, you dont need to follow this guide... all you have to do is flash recovery and the superuser files if you would like root...

Hey Scotty, Smashed up my dinc(1) this morning so I bought another one from a local retailer NIB as far as I can tell. Did the HTCDev unlock, ran through all of your steps successfully till 5.
After 4 I get the bootloop. Hboot is locked. It boots into the OS, i cant tell if its froyo or ginger cuz it just reboots. So here's where I'm at...


*** LOCKED (OOW) ***
INCREDIBLE XC SHIP S-ON
HBOOT-1.02.0000
MICROP-0417
TOUCH PANEL-ATMEL224_16ab
RADIO-2.15.00.07.28
Dec. 21 2011.23:37:16

CWM was installed in the earlier steps, but disappeared after step 4
HBOOT was unlocked earlier also, but locked after step 4

What to do?

the bootloops are fixed by most folks with a factory reset in hboot and/or re-running the downgrade ruu. try the factory reset first.

everything else you describe is normal. the downgrade ruu replaces the recovery you were running wth stock,and hboot ends up relocked. youll have to re-unlock it in step 5

Hey Scotty,

Must have been on the old thread when I message you so plesse disregard it.

I do have a question tho, read thru most of this thread and didn't see it askrd.

Since we have to downgrade to 2.2 anyway, couldn't we just run unrevocked at that point?

And these radio version numbers are killing me I've seen the latest end in .20 and starts with 2 something as it is on my phone right now, and the file I downloaded from the guide starts with 4 I'm sure its right but what's with the differ version numbers.

Fixing to root my dinc at 5pm cst, as soon as I get my laptop will let you know how it goes.

correct, after downgrading to 2.2, you would run unrevoked to get root and s-off...the radio versions start with 2... the software versions start with a 4... they are two different things...in the download section, the radio filenames may refer to the software version the radio came from.

this is all the incredible's radios:

i reccomend leaving it fat32, always makes things easier should a future issue occur ...and when formatting, dont use the "quick format" option.

Ya I didn't never even did that back in the day, well everything went perfect, almost, I lost connectivity in the end so I don't have the new radio, the hboot, or cm 7.2 in yet, but I am s-off and unlocked and rooted with out an issue, I tried to switch ports, reboots, reinstall drivers, etc ,etc, i'll get to it later, person wants there puter back....

Some tips, When Trying to reboot back to hboot menu with phone make sure Fastboot is off Settings ->Applications.

I Had Another one but I forgot It....Gotta Go Thanks tO BOTH of you, That Was so simple.

I do have one more question, I've got CM7.2 on the phone now and running good, My HBOOT is still 1.07 and My Radio Is 2.15.00.07.28, The Question Should I Flash The new "Software" even know the HBOOT an Radio are the same?

can you copy and paste your terminal session into a post here? preferably between [code] paste code here [/code]

and usb debugging is turned on?

that error is typically because your sd card is inaccessible. usually because the user has it mounted as an sd card,and not in charge only mode. if your 100% sure thats not the case,the only thing that comes to mind is the possiblilty of a bad/corrupt sd card,or an issue with the phone.

are other apps able to use the sd card,and can you see it when you check settings/storage?

as sdraw said,a copy of your entire cmd window would be helpful.

ok i am pretty sure my sd card is fine( its a 16bg class 10 formatted to a fat 32 before i started), as for other apps i use the music app every day and thats playing the music off of my sd card, i can redo the entire step 4 thats not a problem and i will post up the cmd window when i get it done

some general tips for troubleshooting:
Quote:
troubleshooting connectivity issues:
*make sure you have changed to your adb/fastboot directory!
*make sure usb debugging is enabled(checkmarked) to use adb in the OS
-try a reboot of the PC
-try different usb cables and ports
-dont use a usb hub
-dont use usb 3.0
-make sure nothing capable of comunicating with the phone is enabled and running. htc sync,pdanet,easy tether,and even itunes have all been known to cause issues.
-windows 8 has been known to have issues. try a windows 7 or older machine

failing the above,
-i use these drivers for fastboot and adb(donwload and run as admin): http://downloads.unrevoked.com/HTCDriver3.0.0.007.exe (mirror)

failing that,try manually updating the drivers in the following manner:
-put the phone in fastboot mode(select fastboot from the hboot menu)
-open device manager on the PC
-plug in phone,watch for it to pop up in device manager.
-update drivers with device manager,pointing the wizard to the extracted
driver download folder from above

note that you can check the connectivity of the phone,and make sure drivers are working by in the following manner:
-open cmd window. change to directory containing adb/fastboot utilities

-adb with the phone in the booted OS,usb debug enabled,enter:
adb devices in a cmd window

-fastboot with phone in fastboot(not hboot!),enter:
fastboot devices in cmd window

in either case,a properly connected phone with working drivers installed should report back the phones serial number.
dont discout the effectiveness of a reboot,make sure usb debug is still on for adb(doesnt matter for fastboot),and i have learned personally that not all usb cables are created equal

i have also rebooted my phone and pc multiply times and still nothing.

i guess the only thing to do is keep trying.

sorry i dont have a better answer for ya... it may be the "something running on the pc" thats casuing you prollems. unfortunately ive see alot of connectivity prollems where weve troubleshot everything several times,everything looks 100% correct,and still nothing. in most cases these folks have success by switching to a different computer,without ever really knowing what was casuing them prollems

Default error trying to flash super user files

Ok so i have followed all steps up to step 3 so far flawlessly and i have successfully unlocked the phone(or atleast it says unlocks at the top in pink) and ive struggled for hours on step 3. The exact error im getting is:

--Installing /sdcard/superuser.zip
Finding update package...
Opening update package...
E:Can't open /sdcard/superuser.zip
(bad)
Installation aborted

I have read numerous threads including most pages on this one and haven't found anything with a solutions.

I go into recovery from HBOOT and wipe the cache partition
Wipe Dalvik cache
the install zip from SD card and that when i get that message.

This is what I have tried:
installing different superuser files from different places(including this thread)
Once i have downloaded the file i open with WinRAR and i dont extract, i simply just drag over into the destination folder.
When creating a root folder i name it whatever and add a .zip at the end because all downloads i have found isnt one single folder. its 2 folders named system and META-INF
I have tried doing the same thing on a Windows xp (older comp) and instead of using WinRAR i use the basic download and dont extract once again, i just drag and drop.
I went out and bought a card read today to see if my SDcard is formatted in FAT32 and it is.
I have tried redoing Step 2 again to see if it makes any difference and it doesn't
I have tried using different SD cards as well.

It seems ive tried everything I just hope im doing something wrong and that you can catch it.

make sure you have left the file as a zip file,and not extracted it

try looseing up or temporarily disabling any antivirus/firewall standards that may be modifying the zip file download. some files and exploits are picked up as potential threats

why can you not access usb debuggig? is your phone not booting? in this case,you can run the downgrade ruu a second time,and perform a factory reset from hboot.

if you are simply refering to the verizon activation screen,search you tube for a trick where you touch the corners of the screen. if it doesnt work,just let it dial and try and update roaming capabilities or let the phone activate. once it fails 3 or 4 times,it will let you past.

you dont actually need usb debug to re-unlock the bootloader. that command is a fastboot command,not an adb command. just skip adb devices and adb reboot bootloader and isue the unlock command after manually selecting fastboot from the hboot screen

Make sure the phone is in charge only mode. Check in settings/storage and make sure that the sd card is not greyed out,and that you can access content(like photos) on the phone itself

What trouble are you having turning on USB debug?

As long as you have successfully downgraded to froyo,USB debug actually doesn't matter much. You can re-unlock the hboot by simply putting the phone into fastboot manually. You can then flash a recovery and install the forever zip

that is correct. flashing the downgrade ruu overwrites the custom recovery. youll have to keep following the guide to reunlock,reinstall recovery,and install root and s off.

See post 834.

You do not need USB debug enabled for the pc to see the phone in fastboot. You are almost done... Jus place the phone in fastboot manually,and continue the guide,skipping the commands that start "adb xxx" and run the commands that are "fastboot xxx"

I think this is a really great guide! But I am having a problem...(At the beginning) when I do adb devices command, I get this:

c:\miniadb_inc>adb devices
adb server is out of date. killing...
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached
HT09EHJ07713 device

I don't know if that is a problem or not, but I continued. The adb reboot bootloader command works fine and does what it should. But then when I do fastboot devices, it does nothing. It doesn't return anything, just goes to another line waiting for another command:

c:\miniadb_inc>adb devices
adb server is out of date. killing...
* daemon started successfully *
List of devices attached
HT09EHJ07713 device


c:\miniadb_inc>adb reboot bootloader
adb server is out of date. killing...
* daemon started successfully *

c:\miniadb_inc>fastboot devices

c:\miniadb_inc>

Any help? I've tried all of the other tricks on here. I've check drivers but the ones that you've shown do not work with Windows 8. I installed HTC Sync off of the HTC website. I don't really know what else to do. I'm going to try an older computer with windows vista, but any advice would be great. Thanks!

Sorry,you're on your own with windows 8. Since 95% of what I do with my pc is phone related I have stayed with windows 7 because of all the windows 8 prolems. Wish I could be of more help,but I have no experience on this one. My only guess is to try manually updatating the drivers with the phone in fastboot using the ones that are supposed to work.

Also make sure the phone is in fastboot,not hboot. You should see a red "fastboot USB" when plugged in.

Make sure you uninstall HTC sync,it could be causing issue

You need to unlock before you can write recovery.a copy/paste of your session would be helpful.

Also,what is the info on your hboot screen?

I had a feeling that was the "prollem" you don't need this guide,you all ready have the end result. If you wish to reroot,there is another sticky a couple threads down on how to root with s off or unlocked boot loader.

I would recommend to let your phone ota to current before rerooting.
