    My friend asked me to root his Incredible 2. Having a Nexus S 4G and rooting many times before, I agreed.

    I used the HTC bootloader unlocker, and flashed ClockworkMod Recovery (5.0.2.0) and attempted to flash an AOKP ROM to it.

    It didn't work. No matter what ROM I flash, it gets stuck at the HTC boot screen. Here is the bootloader info, if needed.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    EDIT#1: Absolutely NONE of the RUU's I have tried have worked.

    EDIT#2: We figured it out! Mods, you can close/delete this thread now

    You might try flashing a different recovery. I had the same issue with my wife's Dinc2 hanging at the HTC screen and as soon as I switched from CWM to Ext4 it worked like a charm.

    I wiped the phone and flashed the ROM as normal, and then went back into fastboot and flashed the boot.img extracted from the ROM ZIP.

    His phone is now running Codename Android 1.6.0 without any problems. :)

    I have the same problem as the original poster, except In have yet to fix it... This is my daily phone and I can't get it past the white htc screen now. I attempted to install the unofficial CM9 build on xda that had the camcorder fixed. I now have a phone that is stuck on the htc screen with 2 different RUUs,m both of my nandroid backups and the ICS version I tried to install. I am going crazy here, any suggestions?

    What recovery are you using?

    I was using clockwork 5.0.2.0, but after reading this post I flashed 4EXT recovery and was at least able to restore my backup. I tried again to flash the ICS Rom but still couldn't get past the white HTC Screen. At least my phone is back up and running, but I would still like to know what i need to do to flash a rom on this device. Could it be because I still have S-ON because of my method of rooting through the HTC Bootloader Unlocker tool? I have just never had a problem flashing a rom after wiping data, cache and system before, I have at least been able to get to the boot animation.

    Check out his note about trouble flashing. This is what worked for me when other versions of CWM and 4EXT failed.

    Just tried re installing the rom and flashing boot.img after installation.... still stuck on white screen. And thoroughly perplexed.

    Forgot to link the post I was referring to. Try the specific recovery Aeroevan links to...

    Bam! That recovery plus flashing the boot.img through fastboot was the ticket. Thank you everybody, Ice cream sandwich never tasted so good!
