Figured it out.
Used Laptop instead of wasting more time with Desktop.
Ran into "Error: Is your firmware too new?"
Waited 5 minutes and retried the DL and worked
Download and install unrEVOked modified USB Driver
- Uninstall HTC Sync, DoubleTwist, and DropBox from the PC. They can be reinstalled later if you desire, but for now they've got to go.
Hey... Can anybody tell me where I'll find HTC Sync, DoubleTwist, and Dropbox on my computer?
About to pull the root trigger. I am curious though about something and too lazy to wade through volumes of posts looking for it.
Can I just root the phone and not flash new roms? I just wish to take control of my phone like my PC and delete bloatware.
I am trying to root my droid incredible 2.1 and everything should be right. I followed the directions exactly with the driver install and checked just as instructed. The unrevoked seems to operate properly untill the end while rooting it keeps saying communications with phone unexpetedly interupted, try again. I have tried multiples and it just keeps doing the same thing. any suggestions? I am operating with windows pc vista.
I'm trying to root an Incredible for a friend that's running on 2.2. I've followed all the steps but when I get to the flashing on step 2 it fails. The error message (on the computer) asks if I'm using the most current software. When re-reading the instructions I noticed it said STOCK 2.2. Does this mean if there is an update it won't work? If not, how can I revert back to stock 2.2?
