1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Hi everyone! :)
    I have been a lurker on this site for 8 months now - I was researching which phone I was going to upgrade to from my BB Storm. I finally got my DINC in August. I :heart: my DINC.
    My hubby has been a lurker on this board for almost a year; I gave him a Droid for Christmas last year - and he rooted it right after he got it LOL. I still don't think he has registered...

    Since I got my phone he has been chomping at the bit to root it. I had researched it when I first got my phone, but wanted to wait until after the 30 days just in case.
    My phone randomly crashed last weekend. My battery died, I plugged it in, then all my apps forced closed. It sucked.
    In the middle of all of that - the new update got pushed to my phone. Thinking it was connected to the crashing that happened, my hubby installed it. He thought what a perfect time to root. So, I gave him my phone only to find out that the update caused it to be unrootable for now.

    Now, we are waiting for the unrevoked developers to find a fix. He REALLY wants to root my phone. LOL I think it really bothers him that he hasn't gotten to do it yet....

    So, that's a little about me and my Droid background. My hubby is the techy... I rely on him for everything, but I do read the forums and research when I have a question too.

    Thanks for all your help! :)

    :welcome: to the Droid Forums. I don't know how to step you through it because you have an Incredible, but you need to do a factory data reset on that thing to get it working right. If you're running a task killer or virus protection, get rid of it.

    If you were going to install a new ROM you'd do a wipe anyway, might as well do it now.

    Hookbill - My hubby took care of it for me. It's in working order... I even went through the trouble of re-setting up my Launcher Pro settings and the apps I use a lot. He told me not to bother since I will have to do it all again after he roots it, but it bothered me too much to leave it. LOL
    Thank you for the offered help :)
