    Worked perfectly - thank you. I was running the leaked OTA on a phone rooted with the Unrevoked3 tool. Followed instructions in video #2 to return to stock, downloaded MyBackup Pro, and restored my apps and data from my last backup. Downloaded my purchased apps, tidied things up, and am now running stock and ready for the (hopefully) soon to be released OTA w/ Froyo.

    Took less than 1 hour total to do all of the above.

    Thanks again...

    Thanks Diego, yeah i just realize what i screwed up, i was not even looking at the fact that it was running the new baseband and kernel. I just installed the jagerrom 1.8 ota for now, and ill run that for the weekend, and if i dont like that, i will watch the 2nd video and go back to stock and wait for 2.2. If i go back to stock, i can still flash an old nandroid back up right? and have it exactly back the way i had it with working everything right?

    Thank you very much for the tutorial! It works perfect. The only part that through me for a loop was after I restarted the phone, it wouldn't automatically find the file that i put on the SD card. Granted this was a easy fix by formatting my SD card to FAT32 file system. After I did that, it auto found it and extracted. Perhaps edit post #1 and before the "Instructions" put format your SD card to FAT32 first. Luckily I was proactively thinking and copied everything that was currently on my SD card to a backup folder on my desktop before I formatted and then after un-root was complete, just copied all of it back. All of my contacts, calendar appointments, etc. came back after that.

    Again, thanks for the how to video!

    Ok looks like every time I download this it says the zip file is corrupt. This for some reason is why I am getting the error of Version is older I believe.

    are you trying to open the zip on your computer? it wont work, you may have to follow the 2nd video diego posted, i had the exact same problem, with the incorrect version, its cause you installed the ota, and have the newer radio. it will not let you downgrade unless you follow the 2nd video and push the old hboot to your phone thru adb. follow the 2nd vid, then format your sd to fat32, and try to load that file again. worked like a charm for me, now everything is hunky dory! good luck.

    Thanks for the video! I want to downgrade so I can install the leaked OTA and 2.2 BUT, I've never done a wipe like this with apps and settings that I don't want to delete. I know there are backup utilities but I don't know what a good free one is and how to backup to make sure I save all my contacts, photos, apps, app data and so on. I should note that I rooted my phone with Unrevoked also. Any help would be appreciated!

    I am in the same boat. I also want to make sure the million hours I've spent playing RoboDefense doesn't get erased. I've backed up my SD card but don't think there is any saved data on there. Also did a Titanium Backup but that's irrelevant once we're unrooted. Does anyone know of a good FREE backup program that will save our data? I read someone used My Backup and I just downloaded it but it says it needs Root access to save application Data. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I need help here. I had rooted my phone. Then I installed the leaked Froyo update without doing this first. Basically fine but I had issues with Gmail and a few other apps. Gmail was adding a 0 to the upper left of all my e-mails. So I did the first process. No problems it recognized everything and went right on through. After it was done I can't get back into recovery. Hboot keeps looking for this file and when it finds it it tries to do everything all over again. If I tell it no and try to go into the recovery it goes to a phone with a red triangle and exclamation point. Does it every single time.

    My plan was to remove root, reupdate to Froyo, then Root to see if that would help. I guess I have to Root and see if I can Froyo. It never said anything like this version is older or anything like that. So I think I am having a different problem. I never upgraded to the the leaked OTA from before. I skipped it and went right to the leaked Froyo. I was going to try to follow that video but I don't have an SDK for one thing and for another you didn't give instructions just blurry look at you arrowing up to a command.

    So if someone could break that video down ADHD style I would appreciate it though I am not sure that is my issue. I am going to try rooting and see if I can update that way.

    Ok finally figured it out. Got back to original, Got the radio update, Got Froyo, Still got the 0 in the upper left corner of all outgoing e-mails. Is there a fix for that?

    I used the update.zip that came after digging through that. I used V4 because I am fine with my SU.APK and don't need to revert it. Fixed it and fixed other issues that were less of an issue. So awesome. Thanks.

    I used unrevoked3.1 to root the Incredible and then I used the IMG file and video from DiegoMejia to unroot the phone. Thanks again for that. All went fine and phone is working fine. However when HBOOT and then click recovery I get the infamous red triangle. I was trying to get the radio 2.0 OTA but I keep getting the red triangle. Any suggestions?

    you have stock recovery, if you want custom you need to use unrevoked.

    Got it. Then how do I load the Radio OTA which everyone suggests before loading the leaked Froyo OTA? I must be missing something or following the wrong directions.

    When you get to the red triangle hold volume up and hit power.

    Same problem I had. I hadn't done a stock update in so long I forgot how to access the stock recovery menu.

    Diego, I think you missunderstood. Jason wanted to intall the 2.0 radio leak, which needs to be done via stock recovery.
