    Gonna use this as a catch all (for now) pertaining to GB issues. Unfortunately the answer for a lot of the issues that come up is 'factory reset'. Seems Vzw dropped the ball a bit.

    As time goes by we will see more diverse problems but for now ALL 'GB broke my phone/x doesn't work after update' threads will be merged here.


    How to go back to 2.2:

    So I just got the Gingerbread this morning (yay!) but I haven't been able to use it. It installed fine and everything seemed cool until I slid the unlocker bar down.

    It sits there ands "loads" and then gives a Force Close for HTC Sense. I can't do anything and it won't come out of it. I've tried pulling the SD Card and I've tried pulling the Battery.

    Any ideas? It's been almost a year since I had to replace my last phone for random reboot loops. But that was another thread :rolleyes:

    You've tried the usual suspects. It really shouldn't be this difficult which is why I hate the OTA update method. If it were my phone I'd call Verizon and tell them they can figure it out or send you a new phone since their update borked it.

    You'll probably have to factory reset. Unfortunately common after receiving the OTA.

    Ok so I have a unique issue. After installing the OTA and doing a factory reset I have no data service. I am pretty sure I have to be connected via the data service to use backup assistant, which I know I shouldnt have relied on for my contacts, but thats another story. I have tried factory reset, reprogramming using *228, airplane mode off/on. Any other suggestions?

    No 3g data. Resetting again, although ive already done this once. Tried toggles. No luck. Tried *228 a couple of times. Non-rooted with regular OTA.

    Oh nice my shizzle got stickied. Thanks Nightangel.

    Thanks for the help. I'm doing it here now. I think the old addage of "Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice . . . ." applies here :mad: :rolleyes:

    Two friends upadated and Original Angry Birds and RIO were missing and Seasons was left untouched. They redownloaded the apps and their score data was still intact.

    Let's See ---- OTA 2.3.4 non-rooted Incredible.

    1) Apps on SD card issue
    2) Slow to connect/mount drives on PC
    3) Continual low space warnings -> critical low space warning and blocking text messages until deleted -- PLENTY of space left.
    4) Gtalk will not load - briefly flashes the splash screen then tanks out.

    Here comes a reset. Ergh.

    Edit: Also getting a repeated com.htc.bg and com.htc.bgp force closes (not sure what they do)

    Ok so this update is pissing me off. Haha. So for those of you keeping score, my 3g didnt work as of earlier. I did a few factory resets, *228 everytime, and all of the little tricks to no avail. Finally after doing that I dialed *611 and had no service, not just lack of data.

    I then called the 800 service number and they gave me directions for ##778 to program manually. Did that. Got voice working. Cool, cept still no net.

    Went to the verizon store. They farked with it for like 20-30 minutes. Nothing, so they put me on a store land line with tech support. That sorta pissed me off. I was on the line with a customer service rep doing all the shit ive already done for like 20-30 mins, then they finally give me over to tech. Tech takes me into 778 menu again and I program everything in. Basically had to change the dunid and all that manually. Then i found a new issue.

    I always save contacts to my actual phone hoping that backup assistant will work. Never had an issue before. Of course this time it won't sync. It actually hit me up to make a new account. No going back on that. VZW tech support guy was like "yeah we dont know how to do anything except check to see the last time you backed it up." So basically I had to login to my backup assistant account online, export the contacts, and sync through computer. It worked. I did all this outside of the verizon store with my netbook, a cigarette, and tethered to my phone. Fark em.

    Anyone notice when you sync, Facebook for HTC no longer notifies you when friends update their Statues ?

    Wow, that takes the award for most stuff borked. Just talked with a user that lost their entire SD card when the OTA occurred. That would suck. I love the parking lot tether, classic. :D

    Hope all is well finally.

    My girlfriend did a factory upgrade on her Incredible and since then the phone loops " HTC Sense force close " error and the phone can not be used. Not sure if update did not finish or what but how can i try upgrading again without going through phone? Phone is not rooted and she has pics stored on phone so dont want to factory reset just yet... HELP:(

    A factory reset will not erase any pictures. But you can also try to go into manage applications, and clearing the data for HTC sense.

    I thought the factory reset deleted everything

    to be on the safe side you can move the pictures to the sd card and do the factory reset without the sd card in... but in my experience a factory reset has never deleted any files I had saved on the internal storage. There is a separate option in the factory reset menu to format the internal storage.

    Just gonna have to try the factory reset through volum down and power button. Can not copy anything since I cant get into the menu or settings for the phone. Hold your breath.....
