    I bought this Droid Incredible from craigslist and when I first turned it on it was all good and worked for like 10 mins then it just kept rebooting over and over. The ESN is still good so thats a plus.

    I was advised to come here and people will help me install a new OS? or something like that.

    Can someone link me a guide please?

    Thank you

    First thing is to boot into hboot by pressing volume down and power while powering up the phone. What does it say at the top? should say s-on or s-off.

    Next thing in preparation for what we're going to have to do is to format the sd card to FAT32. Instructions are here: Formatting SD card to FAT32

    I have an old droid original and it has a 16gb FAT32. Can I use that?

    Format the card from the original Droid before using it.
