    I received my Incredible today (used from ebay) I decided to put cm7 on it. Unknown to me you have to downgrade the phone to root it, I assumed after I installed clockwork recovery the phone was rooted. I tried to install cm7 and now my phone is bricked. I can access hboot, fastboot, and cm recovery.

    Please help!

    If you can get to cwm then do a factory reset. Clear cache, and dalvik cache.

    This should bring you back to stock and clear anything you messed up. If not then, PM me and we will find you a zip to flash in cwm.

    Not intentionally. I assumed my phone was rooted after using unrevoked, but I didn't know the phone had to be downgraded to froyo before it could be rooted.

    Think this is for the original Incredible, not the new 4G LTE one...

    if your phone had a custom recovery on it,it prolly was "rooted"

    pull your batter for a few seconds,then boot to hboot via power and vol down. hold them both until you get to a white screen with colored writing.

    tell us the info you see there.

    the main thing your looking for is "S-OFF". if you see that you dont need a complex downgrade and re-root procedure.
