Default INC not working properly after long time sitting

I had my inc replaced with HTC Thunderbolt a year ago, but then later gave to a friend. Then she got a iPhone 4S. It had CM7, I think she accepted the OTA update when it came up. So now it will not let me download any app, it says CWM is not installed, I tried to install it through ROM Manager, no success, tried to run unrevoked again, no success.

I checked to see android version, its 2.3.3. So IRCC its supposed to be 2.2 or older correct? It still has S-off

So I went ahead and tried to do the 2.2 downgrade, cant get past the mtd0.img push it says,

d:\HTC Incredible stuff\unrevoked3>adb push mtd0.img /sdcard/
failed to copy 'mtd0.img' to '/sdcard//mtd0.img': Read-only file system

Are the other commands working properly? Copy and paste your adb session and post here ...

Thanks, when i checked that link i noticed that everyone is showing flash_image without any extension. so I went into my folder and deleted .txt from it and tried again, it worked! having .txt on flash_image was the issue.

Totally missed the part where you were said you were already s-off... All you really have to do is this:

Hi, I got the same messages. It's kind of tricky. What you need to do is copy the flash_image and mtd0.img file to the folder "platform-tools". Then run the command again.

That's it! Hope it can help.
