For the rest of us peasants who still can't get into that f*@#&$g shell?
I hope so...
Yeah i believe they are. They have an extremely easy root app for the evo and hero and i'm assuming they are working on having it adapted to the incredible.
Music to my ears. Hope your right
I finally got into recovery last night and made it to the last step only to see "Signature verification failed" for 3 straight hours. So close...
Just keep trying. Eventually it'll work. It can be frustrating but the payoff is worth it.
this is what i did.
i hit power button and say "1 tenth" and than hit enter.
You have to run that 1.bat file after each attempt. If you don't the update.zip file wont be correct and will fail the signature test. I'm guessing that was your problem.
Thanks for the feedback,
I was running the 1.bat and overwriting the files, it just seems like the progress bar flashes on my phone much faster than in the "10 min root video". I'll give it another try tonight. Congrats to those that have root, I just hope the Unrevoked Team realizes there are some of us who still need an easier root method (Willing to donate).
is the method we have now not 100%, or are you just asking for a super easy one like what they have done for the EVO?
I'm hoping the Unrevoked boys come through once again. I can't get it using every method and driver combo listed on this website.
have u tried the PNY card method? i have heard high success rate with that method
I was trying for couple hours useing sd card that came with phone... then found my old LG chocolate and it had a 512 mb samsung one... worked but took alot of trys... i think i got it from having sd card out until ~last second before triangle then put back in.
From everything I've read (and this worked for me as well), if you use the A-Data 16gb Class 6 card (which is a good sd card to begin with) and windows 7, you'll have no issues getting root access.
completely agree. I used this method.. I tried 3 other cards no dice. This 1st time.
Is say having to try for hours / days with random cards / techniques is far from 100%
here you go lol
unrevoked for Incredible
Umm so what is that? Takes me to his Twitter page...
Looks like a teaser page for a faster root method coming
Sure looks like it! I hope so! I've tried 2 sd cards.. going out to buy the pyn 2 gb one today. If that doesn't work then I don't know
I got into the shell on the 1st try and root on the 2nd try using the stock 2GB card. I was in airplane mode using the Incredible Rooter program.
The program does away with the need for command line.
Hope it works for you!
i frakin finally did it. i got root. after 2 freakin weeks trying everything from standing on my head to burning insense, i was ready to sacrifice the neighbors cat to the android gods when i finally got adb to recognize in revocery whoooooo hooooo. that ten min vid is great.
now what should i do?
reflash it with custom recovery
And then do a clockwork mod backup.
