    My wife's Incredible is NOT rooted; stock. She got the OTA Gingerbread update. And now I can't get the phone to reboot into recovery mode. Did the process change?

    I am trying to get to recovery mode so I can clear the dalvik cache (stupid low disk space warning). It's been so long since I had my phone non-root that I can't remember if I can do that to a non-rooted phone or not.

    Thanks!

    Can't clear dalvik cache on a non-rooted phone, you need clockwork recovery.

    But yes the process is kind of different to get into hboot(when on gingerbread). You need to disable "fastboot" in the application settings.
