I know there are a lot of methods, tips, tricks out there, but after spending multiple nights trying to get root to work, I got it. I thought it would do some good to share my info. I'm using an ADATA SD card (4GB class 6). Many people have reported varied success with this card. I was able to get this method working twice successfully by following these steps exactly. No other steps I've tried have worked: Download the files linked to here with mejdam's 10 minute video. Files: http://goo.gl/mfhc Extract to sdk folder as he instructs: YouTube - Droid Incredible Root in 10mins (follow his directions on all other steps not indicated here) Boot your phone normally (HTC Sense). Plug in USB. Change to "Charge-only" mode for the usb connection. Enable USB debugging. Power off normally (don't pull battery). Disconnect USB. Hold VOLUME DOWN + POWER. Wait for update messages to pop up and disappear. Press VOL DOWN to highlight "Recovery" (don't select it yet) Remove and reinsert SD Card. Connect USB. Start loop.bat in command prompt. Now, press POWER to select recovery. Rapidly remove and reinsert SD Card until the very moment the /!\ icon comes on screen. (You should do the last SD card re-insert immediately after the /!\ icon appears). This is when I FINALLY got the "exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -" to appear. Now, you can follow all additional steps in the video for superuser permissions, enable tethering, then use UnrEVOked tools, etc... Hopefully it works for someone else. If not, I guess it's just my particular phone/SD Card combo.
