Default The PRS Complete Rooting Guide

I DID NOT MAKE THE ROOT PROCEDURE ALL PROPS GO TO THE TEAM AT
UNREVOKED. I just tacked on the perm procedure and regurgitated it in my own words. \

************DISCLAIMER**********
I nor anyone else is responsible if you break your phone. try this at your own risk!!
***********END DISCLAIMER**************

Original procedure here:
http://www.unrevoked.com/rootwiki/doku.php?id=public:adb_in_recovery

donate here:
https://secure.eff.org/site/Donation2?idb=994673248&df_id=1840&FR_ID=1040&PROX Y_ID=1570&PROXY_TYPE=22&1840.donation=form1

I am just compiling the Current procedure here.

Install the android SDK
Android SDK | Android Developers


Download these Five files and place them into your android sdk/tools folder (wherever you installed it)
http://www.unrevoked.com/incredible/payload-update.zip
http://www.unrevoked.com/incredible/ota.zip
http://www.unrevoked.com/incredible/busybox
http://www.mediafire.com/?nwzozqltm0i
http://www.mediafire.com/?udotmjdniyn



Click on start
then on box at the bottom of your start menu
type cmd

a command window will pop up

navigate to the android SDk Tools directory

type edit loop.bat

in edit enter the following

Code:
@echo off
:TOP
adb shell
GOTO TOP
press alt-f then x

hit enter for yes


***********ADDED BOTH METHODS for shell in recovery*****************

credit to you_eeeeeediot @ XDA for the new procedure

type loop in the command window and press enter

the screen should fill up with "Error - Device not found"

Unplug the USB

Press and hold the optical Trackball and press power

Once in the menu press power again

Wait 20 seconds for it to do its bit

Plug USB in and wait another 10 seconds for your computer to detect the phone

press menu down to highlight "recovery"

Press power

wait 20 seconds

the screen should change from "error: device not found" to "exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -"


If you do not get this message within 10-30 seconds pull the battery and do it over again.

Once you get the above message then click on the cmd window and press ctrl-C to stop the batch file.

If It works skip the method 2 and 3 part.

If this doesnt work ... try method 2

*****************Method 2*************************

Shut the phone off

plug the phone into USB

in the command window and type loop

the screen should fill up with "Error - Device not found"

Press the and hold the volume down button then press and hold power

once in the menu press volume down to highlight "recovery"

Press the power button

the screen should change from "error: device not found" to "error: device not found" to "exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -"


If you do not get this message within 10-30 seconds pull the battery and do it over again.

If It works skip the method 3 part.

If this doesnt work ... try method 3



*****************End Method 2**********************

*****************Method 3**************************
Thanks Centsy

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
******************End Method 3**********************

*****************There are a lot of other methods floating around. I will not add anymore methods to this thread until we have a confirmed %100 working method. So if you are not able to get adb in recovery from the above 3 methods, then look around there are a lot of other methods to try posted here. I will be watching the other threads and will update as soon as I see a method that has a very high rate of success responses. *********************


now you should still be in the triangle with the ! screen. press vol up and power to go back to the menu. DO NOT REBOOT.

Press vol down to highlight "apply: update.zip" and press the power button

It will fail at this.

Go back to the CMD window and type the following commands.

Code:
adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox
adb push ota.zip /sdcard/update.zip
adb push Superuser.apk /sdcard/Superuser.apk
Now type the next command but DO NOT PRESS ENTER YET

Code:
adb push payload-update.zip /sdcard/update.zip
Now press the power button on Apply: update.zip within 1-2 seconds press enter on the command window to execute the above command.

If successful you should see

“unrEVOked for Incredible” with some other stuff

Now type the following commands to make it persistent through reboot

Code:
adb shell
su


export PATH=$PATH:/system/bin
cd /system/app
cat /sdcard/Superuser.apk > Superuser.apk
cd /system/bin
cat /sdcard/su > su
ln -s /system/bin/su /system/xbin/su  /* IF YOU GET AN ERROR HERE DO rm /system/xbin/su THEN REDO */
chmod 06755 su
to get rid unwanted apps do this

Do not type the /* TITLE */ Part... just whats underneath it to remove that particular app

***********Disclaimer**************
I have not personally removed all these apps - Remove at your own risk
********************************

Code:
/* City ID */
/system/bin/rm /system/app/CityID.apk

/* Friend Stream & Widget */
/system/bin/rm /system/app/com.htc.FriendSteamWidget.apk
/system/bin/rm /system/app/FriendStream.apk

/* HTC Facebook */  <------------*****REPORTED TO CAUSE FC's if removed******
/system/bin/rm /system/app/HtcFacebook.apk

/* HTC Twitter & Widget*/
/system/bin/rm /system/app/HtcTwitter.apk
/system/bin/rm /system/app/com.htc.TwitterWidget.apk

/* Teeter */
/system/bin/rm /system/app/teeter.apk

/* Stock Facebook */
/system/bin/rm /system/app/Facebook.apk

/* Verizon Visual Voice Mail */
/system/bin/rm /system/app/VVM.apk


/* HTC Footprints and widget */
/system/bin/rm /system/app/HtcFootprintsWidget.apk 
/system/bin/rm /system/app/HtcFootprints.apk
choose reboot from the menu and Your phone will now reboot and you will have root

I've been able to get it within 3-5 tries. have done it 6-7 times.

Some guy said something about when you get into the recovery screen... try unplugging and plugging in the USB several times... but i havnt tried this.

***** TRied this and it didn't work... just good ol reboot and try again.

Upon booting into recovery mode, Windows asks me to install a driver.

Do I need a driver installed before the command prompts will find the device while in loop?

Was not planning on it. Waiting for a custom rom or some nice easy instructions first. If you brick it...its going to be a long time before you get a new device...

Thanks for the info. Worked like a champ. I did have some issues at first though. Tried 2 different SD cards and nothing. Rebooted about 20 times. Not sure if it helped the root or not but as soon as I unplugged from the USB port on the front of my PC and plugged into one on the back coming off the actual motherboard, it kicked in the first try. No more CityID!!

Windows 7 64bit
2GB Kingston Card (No clue what class)

Great job devs! Thanks so much and thanks for the guide!

I'm having issues though installling the superuser.apk. I can't install directly from phone and when I adb install, it says 'Failure [INSTALL_FAILED_UPDATE_INCOMPATIBLE]'

Any ideas as to why this is happening?

We have root access... doesnt mean that all things root will work. some stuff is confirmed, some stuff will still have to be figured out. The su.apk is one of them that is not working yet. There are a lot more permissions and such that all have to be sorted before everything will work.

yes... boot your phone normally ... make sure debug is turned on.. and then do adb shell... you should get the prompt.. you just wont be able to do anything

maybe having debug enabled is the key?

you did install HTC sync to get the driver installed correct?

i found that running loop in 5 or 6 different command windows made it so i only had to do it 3 or 4 reboots... now, i can't seem to get the timing right for the push update.zip part

Ok with debugging on I can get to a prompt with the phone booted, but so far no luck in recovery mode.

Still not having any success here, adb sees the device once its booted, but not from recovery mode. Verizon is already shipping me a new Incredible on the 11th, so bricking my phone is not a problem,

I've been trying the adb devices trick to see if it sees it, then during reboot I use adb reboot recovery and it will automatically reboot it back to the recovery screen, better than pulling battery IMHO

Ok this method seems to be working... please if you have had no success try this and get back to me... this is just for the boot up part

- Turn off phone
- Unplug USB cable
- Hold Optical track/Button, Press Power
- When in menu, hit Power (to boot FASTBOOT)
- Wait 20 seconds (until it tries to load everything it needs)
- Plug USB cable in, wait another 10 seconds for OS to catch up and detect
- Press Volume DOWN, once
- Start your 'adb shell' loop (via batch file posted in the thread)
- Press Power

I have tested this 3 times in a row and it seems to work perfectly.

No luck, and the only thing i am noticing based on these instructions which I did not notice before is a strange USB connect sound with this - "- Plug USB cable in, wait another 10 seconds for OS to catch up and detect"

But after that I get a normal disconnect and reconnect while it is on the "!" screen.

So far I have tried 4 times with the same results.

There must be some other issue then... i have replicated the results on my phone several times with the new method and it works every time no reboots.

Any thoughts as to what? adb connects instantly when the phone is fully booted and I can even reboot to recovery with adb.

for those of us who cant get it to work, is everyone using the free 2GB SD card that came with the phone? And for those who are getting it to work, are you using a different SD Card?

do you have usb debugging turned on?

Not sure it matters.. grasping at straws.. there has to be something common amongst those of us who can do it.
