Cool Root achieved

Root on the HTC Incredible has been achieved (see screen below). The current process is long and risky, however, we're only days away from a user-friendly patch process that should make it very easy.

Instructions:
Note: Proceed at your own risk!!! This method is not easy for beginners and you are highly advised to wait until an easier patch/method is made available

I can't get my Incredible to recognize when I push the Vol-Up and Power button at the same time. Whenever I try it just locks/puts the phone to sleep. Anyone have a suggestion?

EDIT: And nothing happens when I press the 2 when my phone is off.

As I basically posted in another thread- not seeing the risk vs reward gain for a few reasons:

1. Flash Lite 4 is not much different from 10.1, since neither have GPU support- yet
2. We already have 748mb of app space and the flash allocation is faster than apps2sd option.
3. Device already is fast, and this comes from a picky SOB like me.
4. Tethering is coverd with an app
5. If the flash memory is not accounted for, we lose the 8gb. Even if mapped as external storage, it will be problematic unless fully accounted for in the rom as both app and media space (allocated split, of course).

Short answer- a stock EVO, Nexus or Desire rom will force all app space to the 512 rom with the OS and apps2sd forced to the microsd card. Much weaker option than what we have now.

Please consider this before applying a rom unless the dev confirms the 8gb flash memory is accounted for and at least the same amount we have now is allocated for third party apps. I think this will not be as easy to make work correctly as people assume it will be.

Our best case may be to get an early leak of the Incredible's 2.2 rom, unless the flash space is correctly accounted for.

This does not seem all the difficult to implement. Perhaps I am missing something, or maybe they are just really good at explaining how to do it... I guess I will wait a little bit. I am not really in a rush at this point.

btw, GREAT WORK!

I get SU access immediately following the process but once i reboot.. su results in access denied

I'm using a batch file to loop adb shell

@ECHO OFF
:TOP
ADB SHELL
goto TOP

Press control C once you get the correct response

I'm on reboot #8 right now. I have 3 powershell windows running "while ($true) { .\adb shell }

Getting "error: device not found" on each window during the process.

Essentially, I'm powering off phone. Power and volume down button to get into options. SD cards are loaded and then I volume down to recovery, hit power. HTC splash screen loads, and then the Incredible with the red ! icon is displayed.

How long do I wait from this point until I would know adb loaded? Or is it immediate?

If nothing happens after that, I hit the power button and volume up to get back to the system recovery window and reboot system now to try again....

Nobody is working on a MOD (Correct term is ROM) yet. First we have to have wide-access ROOT capabilities (So that not super-users can root their incredibles) Then we'll need to remap a ROM from another phone or build a brand-new ROM, which will take a while.

Is anyone able to get it to keep root after rebooting? I have no issues getting root in the recovery mode, but I lose it when I restart the phone. Also my display matches the screen shot above for the messages when applying the update... this differs from the screen shot here though:

Incredible Owners, Rejoice – First Successful Root Achieved On The HTC Droid Incredible By The Unrevoked Team | Android News, Reviews, Applications, Games, Phones, Devices, Tips, Hacks, Videos, Podcasts - Android Police

So they must have changed something in the update file for the display to be different. Perhaps that is why we don't have root after restarting.

I highly suggest people wait till the permanency issue gets resolved. Its a waste of time at this point other than to remove city id

EXACTLY.

A lot of work to simply be able to remove ONE app. This root method is NOT permanent. You will lose root if you reboot.

This is a significant step in getting the Incredible rooted and is very exciting. However, the best thing for users is to WAIT PATIENTLY until they get a payload that makes this root permanent. Won't take long now.

No use in risking borking your phone just to be able to remove one app....

Just curious so feel free to delete this post, but if one were to root their Inc, install a wifi tether app, reboot and subsequently lose root, would the wifi tethering still work?

Just looking for another reason to attempt rooting this thing besides removing CityID.

Same here...I would like to know what benefit there is to rooting a phone - other than removing stock apps like City ID.

Hell, wifi tethering would be great but it's not that hard to connect the USB cord (if using it for a laptop). It charges my phone and tethers at the same time. Not too shabby!

Anyway, thanks to everyone working on this. Wish I could contribute but don't have the technical know-how. I'll continue cheering from the sidelines.

You can overclock, load custom ROMs, custom kernels, get better battery life, theme your own phone, use apps like AutoKiller and MetaMorph, and get rid of Sense! I can't wait. I just got my Incredible in the mail today. Time to get cooking.

Can't wait for a user friendly way to root my Inc. I can only imagine how awesome it will be to finally have full access to the Inc and load on a custom ROM. Been missing that ever since I switched over from my Hero.

Talking

"User friendly" and "root" shouldn't be used in same sentence. If you want user friendly, use phone as-is. If you want root, you are a power user, and should have no problem understanding how this works or how to do it. It is really fairly simple. The "hard" part of writing the code has been done, the EU is really just playing whack-a-mole in a sense to inject it.

Given how obscure this hole in the bootloader is, I doub't it will be able to be made much easier. It is not hard now really, just potentially time consuming and frustrating. only real risk from breaking your phone with it is from throwing it across the room from not being able to get adb to work in recovery at 60 reboots..

Speaking of reboots, this guy Centsy posted a "easier" way to get adb working in recovery by popping sd card in and out; worked for me on first try. His post is in this same forum, but ill repeat:

1. With your phone booted up and plugged in via USB, type adb reboot recovery.
2. Start your adb shell loop (using the while loop or bat file).
3. Click in and out your SD card repeatedly while the phone is booting into recovery (apparently every 0.5 sec will do).
4. Watch for "- exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -" to appear in your terminal, then hit "ctrl-c" to break batch job so you can work
5. Follow the rest of the instructions

This must be the most kludgy hack for root ever, lol, but it works! Got cityID removed, setCPU working (no overclock yet of course) and a few other root aps I like (adfree, etc.)

Getting ADB to run in recovery was a PITA as it was, but getting timing right between when you run update.zip in recovery and push the payload zip is as much of a PITA. Hint here: if you don't get timing right, just push ota.zip again, then try the "install update.zip/push payload.zip" on phone; no need to start all over from beginning. What this looks to be doing is "tricking" recovery into thinking it is loading an official signed update during the verification process, and at just the right moment before it loads it, you do a "swicharoo" with the "hacked" payload so it gets installed instead...

Good luck!

Anon - can we lock this thread back up until the root process becomes a little easier? It would be kind of nice to subscribe to the thread and only receive an update on root.

Yes, please.

At least let folks know that it is not a guaranteed thing, there is a bit of chance in the adb recovery bit. This drove me and lots of other folks crazy for days!
