Hey all, Sorry I would have posted in an existing threat but I'm afraid it would get lost in all teh others. I've tried every method I could find and still can't get root on the incredible. I'm use to adb and rooting as I've rooted the tmobile g1 and the moto droid. I'm also pretty computer literate. I think the problem lies with how my computer is identifying my phone. My setup:
Window Vista home premium 64 bit.
Droid Incredible root instructions now available (updated) | Android Central
Root process, my regurgitation of it, with Perm Part added.
I've also modified my android_winusb.inf file adding these lines and updating the drivers through the device manager:
%SingleAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C9E
%CompositeAdbInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C9E&MI_01
%SingleBootLoaderInterface% = USB_Install, USB\VID_0BB4&PID_0C94
Now, in device manager when I fastboot or go to the boot loader screen the phone shows up as:
--android bootloader device
When I boot into recovery it goes away and when the red triangle shows up on the phone to show I'm in recovery the phone shows back up as:
--usb mass storage device
I think it should still be showing up as -android bootloader device- for this to work and not a usb mass storage device.
Can anyone help? thanks in advance
UPDATE: I finally got it by using a 2gb PNY sdcard I got from walmart. I had tried 5 other cards but they were all SanDisk cards. I guess it really was the card. I really thought it was the drivers I had installed and something to do with windows vista but on my second attempt with the 2gb card it worked.
