Question How to root the HTC Incredible

Long story here but the latest software update from Verizon has totally messed up my phone. HTC agrees. They are recommending I root my phone to regain functionality? I really do not want to root but I NEED my phone tomorrow.

Can someone point me to the best way to root the HTC Incredible safely and with the latest and greatest? Help...?

Thanks...appreciated.

Moved to Incredible - All Things Root for better exposure.

Also, have a look at the Incredible Root Guide, that post has some root methods for the various Android versions.

It's really not that hard, just seems that way because it because it is so detailed. Read the directions a couple times before attempting, then just take it a step at a time and you'll have no problem.

Default Forgive my lack of details...

Hi,

I have a Verizon HTC Incredible Droid. I spent considerable time last year trying to root it. It's all a blur right now but I went to all the links above plus many, many more and finally after having absolutely no success, came across a post somewhere that said that this particular model was virtually impossible to root. (And boy, is it!)

Here are some phone basic details:
Model number: ADR6300
Android version: 2.3.4
Kernel version: 2.6.25.13-g22d3486
Build number: 4.08.605.19 CL539174 release-keys
Software number: 4.08.605.19 710RD

The reason I'm jumping in here is that these posts are from March '13. (Hot off the press.) My hope is that perhaps since last year, someone has finally found a way to root this great phone. If anyone is familiar with this predicament and the final solution to it, please let me know. (If you're not familiar with this issue, please don't waste our time asking if I did all the standard procedures. I did them all! And I don't give up easily.)

Again, I'm sorry for the lack of details (errors messages, websites, utilities,etc.). But I hope you get the gist of this. Thanks!

Paul

Hey Scotty,

With 14 pages to wade through, which do you recommend I focus on (besides the 1st, of course)? Thanks again!

Just the first post in that thread is all you need. If you follow the directions exactly ( don't skim) . You shouldn't have any problems but obviously if you have any problems, post in the thread or start a new one.

Yup! First post is all you need. If you have a prollem post up,then search the thread for answers while you wait for help. After this much time,its unlikely you'll encounter a prollem that hasn't been mentioned
