I am going to buy a Droid incredible when someone else has flashed the DI to Cricket successfully. I really don't know to much about flashing phones. So therefore i think it's to bleeding edge even for my skills.

It seems doubtful that Cricket would do this since it could potentially make them liable.

Is the HTC Droid Incredible fully functional on Cricket. If not what functions are working. What is the flashing procedure from Droid Incredible to Cricket. I am assuming that the Droid Incredible has been rooted..?

Thanks

The video showed a phone with the Cricket voice prompt. People are still trying to gain root access, which
is necessary to have full web functionality.

Cricket is a cheap cell service provider, kinda like Boost Mobile is/was. And they will flash any phone you bring them for a fee, $40 bucks sounds about right.

Sorry, but I just discovered that root access is available for HTC Droid Incredible (public:adb_in_recovery [RootWiki] ).(Unrevoked team: Incredible Root process - xda-developers ). My understanding is that it's quite difficult however. I am uncertain what the steps are to flash it to Cricket.

Default How

We want to know how to do it. Not that you were able to do it. What good does that do the average person if we can't do it?
Please someone explain HOW to flash the Droid Incredible to Cricket. Thank you in advance

I believe it has been said on here multiple times now that CRICKET WILL FLASH IT FOR YOU FOR ABOUT $40.

Default Cricket Flashing for $40.00

What stores in the Little Rock area are doing this?....I got the money to have it done...just never heard of a corporate store flashing phones...

I'd rather learn from you guys and do it myself though...the most Ive done in the past is PPC6700 to cricket with the help of the guys at ppc...

My local stores are quoting me $85 per phone for flashing. They said that they do need to install a custom rom. Is it possible for the poster who has the incredible that is functional on cricket to copy his rom for the rest of us? Not sure what's involved in that.

Default Flashed

Well I pay $40 to get it flash to cricket. Almost everything works but gor some reason the speed of the web and other things is really slow so if you planning to watch Youtube well it doesn't work like it should. The Android market works but again it's slow. Oh you can send pics but you can't get any. &

Does cricket require a data plan to activate??

I want to keep my incredible but with just a talk and text plan. I have no need for overpriced mobile web, that i pay for now.... wifi is everywhere.

Google cricket .prl put it on your phone and dial *228 or 611 HEllO
You dont need to flash anything or replace your ROM.
They just want your money.
If you can google and read before you start asking questions you might get somewhere.
Dont forget if you live in a tri-band market you can not use the Incredible on cricket.

You must be on a stock sense rom.
Download this prl http://www.4shared.com/file/PH_7Y5Cz/38288.html?cau2=403tNull, and save it to your sdcard.
On the phone dial ##778# hit call.
Select edit mode, enter six zeros (000000) as the password.
Select prl, and then edit prl.
Select the prl file from the list and hit ok. Dont remember if it reboots on its own or not. If it just takes you back to the main prl menu hit the menu button and select commit modifications.

Then you need to call cricket and setup an account and register your phone. Once registered dial *228 and select activate phone.
