    New user - need help

    so last night I decided to finally go ahead and root my new Droid incredible

    .....stayed up till about 3am tryna figure it out but no luck I've rooted my t-mobile mytouch and my friends Droid before but having a very hard time rooting my incredible I followed the how to root guide on this forum downloaded unrevoked but everytime It would reboot and go into hboot it would give me a error

    saying main version is older! Update failed - I saw other people were having similar problems and all they had to do was keep trying but I tried about 6 times even pulled the battery but no luck.. my only guess Is am I supposed to install unrevoked forever? Hope you guys can help thanks!

    you can try and see if Z4root will do the trick. It's a one-click root app. I would google it to find out.

    Do you have a Windows PC that you can use to root with Unrevoked?

    Also, there is no need to run Unrevoked forever. The new Unrevoked has forever already in it.
