    these are the steps I took when i un-rooted my phone.
    1.Download HTC sync
    2.Download RUU file.
    3.Turn phone on and make sure that HTC sync is not on,it just needs to be installed on your PC.
    4.Run the RUU file and follow instructions, if you already tried this procedure you may have a phone that needs to have the pb31IMG reflashed to S-ON if that's the case take a look at this thread by DougPiston

    This had probably been answered before, but is it possible to downgrade the Dinc to Froyo 2.2 from Gingerbread 2.3.4 so that it can be rooted? I know it is possible to regain root with S-OFF, but I still have S-ON.

    I got my rooted Incredible back to s-on. My issue is that I cannot seem to get it back to stock. This is what I have loaded on my phone:
    version 2.2
    Baseband 2.15.00.07.28
    Kernel 2.6.32.17
    Build Incredibly Re-Engineered v2.30
    Software number 3.70.651.1

    Any help would be great. Thanks!

    Hey Thanks. For the life of me I could not figure that out. Even took me awhile until I finally found where you were referring me to.
    Thanks again

    Can anyone please help me? I need to unroot my phone but nothing seems to work. All I did was simply root it to tether one time. Now I need to take my phone back to verizon. I don't know TOO much about this stuff. I did try to follow the instructions and drag the file, vol - and power, but then it says image not found and gives me options to
    Fastboot
    Recovery.... etc.. and I have to choose one of those.. Someone please help! THank you!!

    I do know when I look at properties It is on FAT32. And I am on 2.2 as well.

    Have you tried using an RUU file to get back to complete stock ? also if you have HTC sync on your PC it needs to be un-installed to run an RUU file. If you haven't tried the RUU PM me and i'll send you one that I have that I use to get Incredibles back to stock.


    EDIT: I was wrong about the HTC sync it does need to be on your PC but it needs to be disabled while you run the RUU.Also you can use the HTC super tool to un-root your phone.

    Thanks for replying.. I saw where you could do RUU but HTC Sync won't work. My device never shows up. I downloaded it yesterday with no luck.
