    I'm not new to flashing ROMs, but I am new to flashing ROMs on the Incredible so I have a few questions.

    1.) On some of the ROM directions, they talk about needing a different version of HBOOT. How do I tell which version I have?

    2.) When they talk about doing a full wipe, i'm assuming this is the same as I had to do with my LG Ally. Wipe the data\cache, the cache and the dalvik cache. Is that correct.

    3.) The ROM I want to try first is the Incredibly Re-Engineered ROM. Anyone know if that one needs the HBOOT update or do I just need to do the full wipe of data and caches and then install the .zip file?

    Thans for any info...

    ROM Manager is pretty simple to use and does all the steps for you. I have had success with it.
