    Which Method: Reboot to recovery through Fastboot.
    Computer OS/ hardware: Windows 7 64 Bit
    SD Card Used: 8GB Class 4 Kingston
    SD Card Status: Not full, not new
    USB Debugging enabled: Yes
    USB Cable Used: generic

    I did not unplug my USB cable. I left it plugged in during the process. I never got it to to work by unplugging it and plugging it in after entering FASTBOOT. I was also stuck on the step of pushing the payload 1/2 second after pushing the power button until someone (ShortBus from IRC) gave me the tip to wait until I saw text on the screen. I was apparently pushing it too soon.

    Which Method: see below
    Computer OS/ hardware: Windows xp
    SD Card Used: 16gb
    SD Card Status: 2.7GB free
    USB Debugging enabled: Yes
    USB Cable Used : Blackberry
    any other thoughts? see below

    I tried every little trick and here is what I noticed.

    - unplug your phone from your USB cable
    - turn your phone on normally...like you would every day. so you can use it.
    - then don't power it down...just pull the battery out
    - then press the optical jotstick & power button
    - then follow the rest of the instructions listed in previous posts

    i think for some reason...rebooting the phone into recovery from various states does not work (it did not for me). i think when you just kill the phone from it's normal state and then boot into recovery it works (it did for me).

    i hope this helps!!!

    Method: Reboot recovery / insert-remove sd card method
    Comp OS / Hardware: Acer timeline win7 32x
    SD Card: SanDisk 2 GB which came with phone, unknown class
    SD Card Status: In use, 1.5 GB free
    USB Debug enabled: Yes
    USB Cable: HTC OEM

    Used ADB to reboot using adb reboot recovery, then started loop. Then as, phone booted, quickly inserted and removed sd card multiple times while booting till the correct message in loop appeared, then root per regular instructions. The two other methods failed multiple times, this method worked in two tries for me. My first try, I was unable to insert and remove the card very quickly. A tip: Don't insert the card till it clicks, insert it till just before and then let the spring push it back out. This lets you insert and remove very quickly, which increases your chances of success.

    Which Method:
    1. Load up the fastboot menu by holding down power and the optical trackpad.
    2. Plug in the USB cable
    3. Press power again to select bootloader.
    4. Click the SD card out (before it searches for the missing files), highlight recovery, and then press power to select recovery.
    5. As the first white HTC screen is loading, you will hear a "detach" sound if you are on a windows computer. Immediately click the SD card in at this time. THE CARD MUST GO IN BEFORE THE SCREEN TURNS BLACK. You have to be very fast. If you push the card in after the screen goes black, too late. Keep trying and you will get it.
    6. Try to get into shell.
    7. If you did not get into recovery. Do a battery pull and repeat steps 1-6.
    Computer OS/ hardware: Windows 7 32
    SD Card Used: 8GB that came with my BB Storm
    USB Debugging enabled: Yes
    USB Cable Used : Blackberry


    I've tried everything for about a week. The method above work perfectly!

    Which Method:
    1. phone is on, booted normal, usb cable removed, sdcard unclicked
    2. battery pull
    3. power and optical pad to boot to the hboot
    4. select bootloader, press power
    5. wait about 10 seconds, and run your adb shell loop (makes life easier, not necessary though)
    6. highlight recovery, plug in usb cable, wait to hear either a 'hardware connected' noise or a 'hardware error' noise (this may come out weird, but the former sounds like 'duhdee', and the latter 'duhduh').... i got the hardware error because it couldn't find Android 1.0 ... no big deal
    7. put my finger on the sdcard, and pressed the power button to select Recovery
    8. As soon as you hear the hardware disconnect noise ('duhdohh') click in the sdcard, this MUST be done before the screen turns black, if you can even get it before the hardware disconnect noise ends that would be perfect.

    EDIT:
    For my second phone this method worked every time.

    I would type in loop and not actually run it yet. I would hit the power button for recovery and start counting one one thousand, two one thousand, etc... at six one thousand I would hit enter to run boot and at 8 one thousand I'd push in my card. It may be different for every computer but that was the timing that worked for me. As soon as I said 8, the computer beeped almost immediately and the timing was perfect.

    Computer OS/ hardware: Dell Inspiron e1505 Windows 7 32 bit
    SD Card Used: Stock 2GB that came with the phone
    SD Card Status: Empty aside from folders it adds when first turned on
    USB Debugging enabled: Yes
    USB Cable Used: HTC OEM
    Any other thoughts? I tried this for days on end with every card and pc available. I think the trick is the timing part as listed above in step 8. This is the criticle part and what I had been missing the entire time.

    The step 5 from my post in "New Root Method" Thread... something that made all the difference in my attempt.
    5. As the first white HTC screen is loading, you will hear a "detach" sound if you are on a windows computer. Immediately click the SD card in at this time. THE CARD MUST GO IN BEFORE THE SCREEN TURNS BLACK. You have to be very fast. If you push the card in after the screen goes black, too late. Keep trying and you will get it.

    This worked every single time for me!

    The trick is to have the SDcard out before going into recovery, enter recovery with your speakers on and as soon as you hear the 1st bepping noise, plug the sdcard in right away... if your doing loop.. you'll see the connection/error message soon after!

    Which Method: The 10 minute root method (not sure if its reboot or fastboot)
    Computer OS/ hardware: Windows 7 64bit
    SD Card Used: Kingston 1GB. Class 2
    SD Card Status: Full, previously used (its from my LG Dare)
    USB Debugging enabled: Yes
    USB Cable Used : HTC OEM

    Other thoughts: Stock 2gb card that came with phone would not work at all, but this card (1gb class 2 kingston)works first time every time. I get the directory failed message immediately without having to even use the loop.bat .

    someone please tell me if this is fastboot or reboot. I'm not sure what the diff is.

    Which Method: Reboot, Optical sensor and Power to restart
    Computer OS/ hardware: Windows 7 32-bit / 2.93 P4 2.0GB Ram
    SD Card Used: 4GB PNY class 4
    SD Card Status: Empty, Not used formatted by Phone
    USB Debugging enabled: Yes
    USB Cable Used : Generic, Possible from my old Storm

    Other Thoughts: Used the Modified USB Drivers. Unplugged the SD card before Hitting power at recovery prompt. I noticed that after hitting power to go into recovery mode and the HTC Incredible Screen came up, before the usb dissconnect sound I had a black line flash at the bottom of the screen. Looked like a graphics glitch right before the screen turned black. I clicked in the SD card when I saw that black line and got the directory failed message immediatly. That line i saw appeared about 1/4 of an inch from the bottom of the screen.

    I hope this information is understandable and is helpfull.
