    If you got all the way through it you should see an app called SuperUser. And you should be able to boot into recovery from the hboot menu.

    Yeah I got that, im in. Just deleated my 2.3.3 power tool bar by accident anything I can d to get that re installed?

    But the main question is "now that I am rooted, what do I need to back up and what needs to be "wiped" prior to flashing a new ROM?

    Used Titanium Back up (batching now) to back up all user data. On the CWM screen what needs wiped before a new rom?

    Wiping data and cache should do it. That's from my experience with the D1 though so this phone may be different.

    On a side note I just spent nearly an hour editing the OP and when I clicked save it said the message was too short and to make sure it's over 4 characters long. Then it asked if would like to "cancel my changes" and the only option was ok. Fantastic. I'll probably redo it later tonight but right now I just need to do something else haha.

    Got it running on cyanogen Mod 7 with my original ADW presets. I was able to get all my apps back, contacts but not SMS or MMS msgs.

    I also downloaded ROM manager and OMFGB to play around with. There has to be an easier way to set up the apps and settings in a new ROM spent 30 mins hitting install and ok.

    All in all your guide was spot on. As a first timer with the hindrance of spelling mistakes, all you people on the fence and questioning if "YOU" can do it or not. Try it, it is really not that hard. Just read the directions and download everything in advance and read the instructions and give it a whirl. Spot on.

    SOME roms may allow you to install the new rom directly over the other without wiping data so that would save everything and you wouldn't even need to bother with titanium, but that mostly applies to updating to a new version of the same rom (and not always then). You can always buy the paid version of titanium which has the ability to do a batch restore without requiring you to hit install and ok for every app. Pro-tip about titanium though. You don't usually want to just backup and restore EVERYTHING it gives you the option to. That can cause some of the same problems as installing a rom without wiping data. I think there's a batch backup called "user apps" or something like it that will only backup the apps that you downloaded (no system apps), but I always just scroll through the whole list of apps and only backup the ones that I installed (system apps will be red to make it easy) then i can just batch restore every backup I've made.

    Edit - Also there's an app on the market that I've used for a long time called "SMS BACKUP n2manager". It will backup and restore your SMS (I think MMS too but not sure) and it even has a backup scheduler that I never use. I'm not saying it's the best or anything but it has always worked for me and it's pretty simple.

    This process is for S-Off, Recovery installation, and Root permissions. It may be a good idea to create a recovery between steps 18 and 19.

    First off I am not responsible for what you do to your phone or anything that happens to it as a result of using this process. (please don't sue me!)

    Note: Please have all your HTC drivers and what-not installed. I'm not exactly sure where to find them so i'll leave this part up to you! But don't worry you're a big boy! You can hande it. I'll add that as well as a couple of other little things in tomorrow as long as i get the chance.

    Downloads:
    This section will be added tomorrow.

    Obtaining S-Off:

    1. Go to
    Revolutionary and click the download link at the bottom. (this guide is only for windows but i may update with linux instructions later)
    2. Enter your OS (windows for this guide) device (HTC Droid Incredible 2) and HBoot version (there's only one option) in the blue box under the download link. Serial number will come in a minute.
    3. Unzip/extract the zip you downloaded with your favorite zipping program. (I use WinRar but there are plenty of others that work just as well)
    4. Run the revolutionary.exe
    5. Make sure your phone has USB debugging enabled (Settings -> Applications -> Development -> USB debugging) and fast boot disabled. (Settings -> Power -> fast boot)
    6. Plug your phone in to your computer via USB.
    7. Enter the serial number on the revolutionary website (told you) and click generate key.

    Note: From here I'm writing this up from memory since I've already been through the process successfully and don't know what would happen if i did it twice, so if anyone notices anything wrong PLEASE let me know so I can fix it. (so far no one has noticed anything wrong so it's probably okay)

    8. Enter the generated beta key into the command prompt window. (if it doesn't accept it you probably entered it in wrong)
    9. It will do it's thing for a minute or so, and after a while it will say success (hopefully) and ask if you want to download and install ClockWorkMod recovery.
    10. When this guide was first made that functionality was broken, but now it seems it has been fixed. Enter "Y" and if it works you can skip the "Installing ClockWorkMod Recovery" section of this guide. If the window closes on you randomly or tells you it failed you will need to manually install CWM.

    Installing ClockWorkMod Recovery:

    Note/Warning: Do NOT do this part of the guide if you used the Revolutionary S-Off tool to install CWM. (successfully)
    Note: From this point on, the majority of my information (including files and links) comes from this thread [Info] After Revolutionary: install Clockworkmod, root & more - xda-developers. So even if somehow you break your phone you can't even TRY to blame it on me :-P

    11. You will now need to Download the fastboot and ADB tool and ClockWorkMod recovery for the DINC2.
    12. Open the command prompt and look at the directory it's pointing to. (should be something like "C:\Users\*your name*") extract the fastboot and ADB .zip to the *your name* folder, and move the CWM .img to the same location.

    Note: I'm terrible with windows commands so there may be a way to do this without dumping everything into your user folder, but this works fine too.

    13. Type "fastboot flash recovery *name_of_CWM_file*.img" into the command prompt and press enter. It should work for no more than a few seconds and then tell you it's done!
    14. Now you can navigate the menu on your phone's screen with the volume up and down keys and select "Reboot" with the power key. BUT WAIT! Before it starts back up again you need to press and hold the volume down button until it turns on again! Did you read this before you selected reboot?? If not you had better hurry!!!! If you missed it it's fine you can just wait on the phone to boot up again and then reboot it like you always would. But remember to do it this time!
    Note: No longer from memory!

    Obtaining Root Privileges:

    15. Navigate the hboot menu with the volume keys and select "Recovery" with the power button. (If you don't see an option for "recovery" try doing step 14)
    16. While you're waiting on it to reboot download this SuperUser/root .zip (can you believe you still aren't rooted?? But it's okay you've been making good progress!)
    17. Go back to your phone and take a look at that sweet new recovery! (I know. I wish i could change the color too.) Navigate to the "mounts and storage" option and select it (same keys as before) select "mount USB storage".
    18. Copy the SuperUser/root .zip from your computer to your SD card once it shows up on your PC. (I like to have a folder on my SD card called "Updates" just to keep all my .zip files in one place)

    Note: This is a good time to create a recovery if you want to but I haven't included those steps in this guide because it isn't essential to rooting your phone as long as you don't mess up! And messing up this late in the game would be pretty hard haha

    19. Once the file is done copying select "Unmount" then "***Go Back***" then "Install zip from SD card" then "Choose zip from SD card" then find the folder you put the SU/root .zip and select it then select "yes - Install *SU/root*.zip
    20. Go back to the main screen in CWM and choose "Reboot system now" and you're all done!!!!! Give yourself a pat on the back!

    This is my first guide so I'd love feedback of any kind and if you have any questions don't be afraid to either reply with it or PM me and I'll see what I can do :-)

    HAVE FUN WITH YOUR FRESHLY ROOTED HTC INCREDIBLE 2!!
    Don't be afraid to donate to Unrevoked and AlphaRev!
    They did a lot of hard work and deserve to be rewarded for making all this possible :-)
