    Have had my Inc for 3 days now since my beloved D1's touchscreen fizzled out. Followed instructions here, very easy don't see how you can screw it up.

    Now its time to get rid of the stupid bloat apps from Verizon. Counted 23 preinstalled apps that I will never use and are taking up space. :-)

    Unrevoked hangups solved

    Finally solved!

    First: Thank you Enlightened for your excellent and meticulously crafted rooting instructions! (can I buy you a beer?)

    After many failed attempts (with different errors and results) to root my HTC Incredible (with SLCD) with Unrevoked 3.32 and HBOOT drivers version 2.0.0010.00002, I finally got it to work. Here is what I did:

    1. Uninstalled zsploit! I could not do this from the AppBrain market app, which I usually use for uninstalls, because it didn't show up there. I used Android Tweak instead (free download) and it took all of 2 seconds.

    2. Uninstalled all task and system related utilities that I had manually installed. This will be different for everyone so think about what apps you installed that "optimize" some aspect of the phone. You can always re-download and reinstall them later.

    I think those two steps are probably what fixed the problem but you should know what else I did differently from all of my failed attempts, just to be thorough.

    3. I changed my live animated wallpaper to just an image.

    4. In Settings, Development I checked "Stay Awake".

    5. I started Unrevoked (reflash_package.exe) *before* plugging in the freshly restarted-in-normal-mode phone.

    Here is what DID NOT WORK FOR ME!:
    using a different computer,
    using a different cable,
    retrying the whole procedure many, many times,
    turning off the password/pattern lock (the nine dots, if you have it on),
    using Unrevoked v3.30 (27MB) instead of v3.32 (28MB),
    crying (well, not really).

    Notes:
    At some point in the many, many attempts half of my widgets disappeared and were replaced with some placeholder message. If this happens to you DON'T WORRY! Just drag the messages to the "Remove" button, like a normal widget uninstall. Then reinstall (re-put?) the widget and it works.

    Unsolicited advice:
    Also, don't get too desperate and try to flash a ROM to your phone just to get rooted! Rooting should not be terribly disruptive and is a fairly low-risk operation if you can use google and patiently follow instructions. Flashing a ROM is not so trivial and the risk of screwing things up is greater! If you only want the joys and freedoms of being rooted, and it's not working for you right now, then flashing a ROM is like getting surgery for a headache! Just wait a few weeks and check the forums again. The developers are effing amazing!

    Phone:
    HTC Incredible with SLCD (not AMOLED)
    Hardware Version 0003 (that means it's an SLCD)
    Android 2.2 from Verizon's November 2010 OTA update

    Computer OS for all tests:
    XP Pro

    Stuff used for rooting:
    HBOOT drivers version 2.0.0010.00002 (the version number is in the android_winusb.inf text file) I got these from unrevoked.com. I'm guessing that this version, or higher, should work fine.

    Unrevoked 3.32 (reflash_package.exe)

    Good Luck!

    According to the OP:

    *In XP: the New Hardware Found Wizard should appear. Tell it NOT to use Windows Update, and moving along, tell it to look in a specified location. It will pop up a file open dialog. Navigate to the Android USB Driver folder, click OK then click Next.

    *In Windows Vista/ Windows 7: You might not see the New Hardware Found Wizard. Open the Device Manager (Right click My Computer, select Manage, then select the Device Manager). You will see an Android Phone node in the tree with a "caution" icon node beneath it. Right click on the caution-marked node and select Update Driver. Select NOT to look in Windows Update; instead, choose Install from a specified location. It will pop up a file open dialog. Navigate to the Android USB Driver folder, click OK, then click Next.
