    Hey everyone, I need some help here. I cracked the screen on my incredible and hope to be getting a replacement soon.

    Is there a way that I can take a backup of the phone without seeing the screen? I can see some parts of the screen, but not all.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Waiting to get my phone back too, I could see my screen. I should get it back today. Are you rooted? Maybe someone can list all the keypresses for you (I'll do it if I get my phone today) to do a nandroid backup blind. Certainly would be an interesting adventure.

    Unfortunately, i'm not rooted. I'd have to root blind and then do a backup blind.

    well root then. then do a nandroid backup. to root all u need is unrevoked and plugging your phone into your comp (no screen needed), if i remember.

    that is true, you don't need to do anything on you're phone. i think this could be possible. i get mine friday, just called HTC, maybe i could help you out? I need to root again cause HTC upgraded me w/o asking (i flipped out on them).

    damnit, it's a bit of a pain to turn on usb debugging when I can't see anything. I guess I'll have to wait for my new phone.

    awww you cant get to usb debugging, that sucks. can you see anything on your phone? Settings > Applications > Development > USB debugging. if you get USB debugging on, you dont need your phone anymore.

    I just tried this. I got usb debugging working and even loaded the hboot drivers...all blind.

    Anyway, unrevoked3 is not working. I read somewhere that it is not yet compatible with 2.2. Guess I may have to wait unless anybody has other suggestions.

    Thanks,
    Jaime

    I should be getting my phone tomorrow and will root then help you get through it. If not next week, I dont have internet at my new place yet so I cant do it over the weekend.

    Ok so I just noticed that unrEVOked still hasnt fixed all the bugs for the 2.2 one-click root process. How did you do it? Let me know and I'll get that done ASAP then walk you through it.

    This is going to be a new feat in Android hacking/rooting

    unfriggin believeable. HTC, well PCD, messed up my repair AGAIN. Sending it back over the weekend. But I think I can still help you do the blind backup. Are you able to get into the recovery screen blind?

    I basically just need to get to the nandroid backup screen from a fresh battery pull. I know I need to do vol down and power but after that, I'm at a loss. It's not like the optical track pad gives you any real way to gauge how many "steps" it's taken like you could with the vol down button. Not sure if I can browse the nandroid screen (never used) with the vol button.

    Just IMd you on AIM (fourage16)

    No idea how to get on to my AIM account, lost hte password and it wont send me it.

    Yeah unfortunately you need the trackball to actually select anything.

    I just realized something, doing vol down + power only gets you to the stock recovery screen...not the clockworkmod recovery where you can do a backup.

    This is going to be trickier than i thought

    EDIT: I lied

    Here is what I got:
    -Vol Down + Power - hold for 10 seconds
    -Wait another 10 seconds after letting go of Vol/Pwr for it to do its thing
    -Vol Down once
    -Pwr once, phone will vibrate.
    -Wait 10 seconds
    -Vol Down 5 times

    At this point you are on "-backup and restore" in clockworkmod recovery. I cannot select it because my trackball is not working. If someone can pick this up from here you will be good to go.

    I'll have my phone back by Wednesday I think so I can continue then.

    good point haha, do you already have the cable??

    EDIT: actually, i dont know. im not sure it works like a laptop + monitor where you just put the screen to something else. i dont know if it would work while in recovery... but you could download titanium backup or something like that and run it that way.

    That's true. The idea popped up because I saw this video: YouTube - NANDROID BACKUP DROID INCREDIBLE

    I guess I'll have to wait until my new phone gets here and just do them side by side.

    I rooted my phone as soon as I got it and was able to do a backup using side by side method. Restore went through fine and......I'm BACK!

    Amazing.

    ....or should I say...incredible?
