I will begin by saying I'm sorry if such answers have been answered elsewhere before, I was unable to find any concise answer. Thank you So I decided to root my incredible 2 last night and preceded as follows: I began by downgrading to 2.3.3 installed CWM and S-off (back-up of course) Rooted tried installing cyanongen mod 7 (the one in the sticky link) And that is where things began going wrong. I would boot up and the boot animation would keep repeating until I had to remove the battery. I realize that is a common issue from other threads but I don't know how to fix it. (I'm sorry, I am quite noobish..) I did however restore my phone to the backup I had made so that I could use my phone for the time being... My questions are: By going to the previous restore, did I undo the root? Is there a way to get cyanogen mod 7 to work without that issue? Lastly, may I add that the main reason I'm doing any of this is to tether my other electronics without having to pay more to verizon for that service. Would I even need cyanogen as long as I have root on 2.3.3 or will I be charged as normal without a mod? Thank you so much!
