    I need help!! I installed the leaked OTA update and now want to revert back to stock 2.1.... I have read the threads but dont understand what im reading. Is there a step by step Youtube video explaining this?

    I dont know anything about ADB (Android Development bridge)

    Have no Idea what Im doing, all of the instructions I find are written in a form that assumes you know something about what your doing, using acronyms like ADB (That I had to look up) and giving me instructions to install clockwork using Unrevoked's latest tool which again I have no Idea what i'm being asked to do.

    Im sorry that I require more detailed step by step instructions but installing the leak OTA update was easy as pie, and didn't require any real knowledge of the inner workings of the android os or 3rd party tools to accomplish the task.

    I have posted a question on the original leaked OTA thread but have not received a response and I have even asked some of the more capable users here direct questions but still no response.. So pretty please with FROYO on top someone guide me in the right direction

    Thanks

    Howto: Root the HTC Droid Incredible - Technology - Jonamerica.com

    Here’s how it’s done:
    1. Download the file PB31IMG.zip and put it on the root of your SD card
    2. Shut down your phone
    3. Press and hold volume down and the power button to boot into HBoot
    4. The phone will find, load, and check the file you downloaded. It will then ask you if you would like to update using the file
    5. Press volume up to update the phone
    6. Reboot into your stock phone

    That sounds easy!! Thank you but according to adrenalyne, that will only work when reverting from root and its a much more complicated process when reverting from the leaked OTA update

    These are the instructions that I don't understand.... also please remember I don't have 2.2 but rather an OTA update that gave me a new boot screen, 720p capability and WiFi hotspot








    How to revert back to an earlier version of HBOOT


    This mostly applies to folks who have flashed the leaked ota and want to go back to legit stock. There is generally a problem with that, because we cannot use the RUU due to the upgraded Hboot (no radio has nothing to do with it).


    Through my travels, I found a way to do it.


    This is not without its risks, and I take no responsibility for any broken phones, knocked up cats, or homeless hamsters caused from the havoc it may wreak.


    It did work for me, quite well. I was able to flash to an old RUU without issue like nothing ever happened.


    First, the link I used, and then the english version.

    [HOW-TO] Downgrade HBOOT - HTCPedia.com forums


    Need the RUU?
    RUU_IncredibleC_Verizon_WWE_1.22.605.2_Radio_1.00.03.04.06_hboot_0.79_release_161494_NoDriver_0514.exe


    Now, my instructions, which will hopefully simplify it. I take no credit for this by the way, credit is due to the original thread.


    1. Download and unzip the files I have attached to this thread and put them somewhere that you can push them with adb.

    2. You must used Unrevoked's latest tool to install clockwork.

    3. Boot into clockwork recovery, go to partitions, and mount data.

    4. Type this code:

    Code:
    adb push flash_image /data
    adb push mtd0.img /data
    adb shell
    chmod 777 /data/flash_image
    cd /data
    flash_image misc mtd0.img
    exit
    adb reboot oem-78
    Watch for your phone to reboot to a silver HTC logo.


    Then type:
    Code:
    fastboot devices
    Verify your device shows up/responds/etc.


    Start the RUU. It will complain that battery life is too low to continue. Hit Exit, and it will reboot your phone. Run the RUU again. It should successfully flash your phone, downgrading you successfully.



    Having troubles with the RUU giving connection errors? Do this.


    Go to start, and in the search/run box, type


    %temp%


    Delete all that you can. Make sure the RUU is not running in the background.


    Now run the RUU again. Once it starts to the first screen, it has extracted the files to the temp directory. You can then copy them to a safe place. It will be a long winded numbered folder, with a similar subfolder.


    Once you have copied it to a safe place, you can then copy adb.exe, fastboot.exe, and adbwinapi.dll from the latest SDK into it, overwriting the older copies. Then start the RUU by executing ARUWizard.exe. This fixed the problem for me.


    You can also rename the rom.zip contained within the extracted files to PB31IMG.zip and put it on your sd card. Booting to HBOOT will scan it and offer to install.
