    need help rooting incredible

    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.

    I've tried:
    public:adb_in_recovery [RootWiki]
    and
    Droid Incredible root instructions now available (updated) | Android Central
    and
    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:
    ;
    ;HTC Incredible
    %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.

    We're having the same problem in the 'root in 10 minutes' thread.
    And we still haven't figured out a way around it.

    Thanks for your reply. I was wondering if I was the only one having this problem. I've tried 5 different sdcards also. It's gotta be the way the phone is showing up after it goes into recovery mode. I hope somebody can figure this out.

    Ok I just got it. It only like me about 10 hours off and on

    I used the SD card trick and it worked first try. Holy moses!
    I'm going to find the exact steps for that trick and post it here in a few.
    It definitely seems like a driver issue with 64bit systems. Once I did this trick, in a loop, I noticed my laptop re-finding a driver and the rest is history!
    Tomorrow I will try to copy the driver and share it.

    1. Load up the fastboot menu by holding down power and the optical trackpad.
    2. Plug in the USB cable
    3. Press power again to select fastboot.
    4. Click the SD card out, highlight recovery, and then press power to select recovery.
    5. As the first white HTC screen is loading, you will hear a "detach" sound if you are on a windows computer. Immediately click the SD card in at this time.
    6. Try to get into shell.
    7. If you did not get into recovery, reboot into the OS by holding down power and volume up and clicking power again. Do a battery pull and repeat steps 1-6.
    Giving credit where credit is due (I hope)

    Funny, I was just trying this when you posted. It was a no go for me. I'm going to go to wally world tomorrow and get one of the 2g PNY cards and see if that helps. I've used 5 different cards: 2 different 16gb, a 8gb, a 2gb, and a 128k card. They were all Sandisk though except teh 128k card. This has to be something like the phone looking for some file on the sdcard and when it doesn't find it it drops out of the bootloader status and goes into usb mode. I don't know how a sdcard could make a difference. I hope someone is able to make a file to put on your card so when the phone looks for it it stays in recovery adb mode.

    Thanks for replying. Yes I've read both treads and watched the video. I've been reading everything I can. Nothing worked yet. Thanks for replying though.

    Well damn there goes my theory about it being a 64 bit issue. It happened so effortlessly with that SD trick for me. I was really hoping yours (and everyone else with this issue) would do the same.
    To save you the time of reading through that other bigger thread, the only SD related steps I took was this trick and I also formatted (not a quick format) the card with an external card reader.
    Maybe give that a try.
