    I am trying to unroot my incredible using the second video on post #1. It says to place those two files in the "sdk tools" folder on the c: drive. I am on a mac and do not know where to place these files. I was under the impression since i was on a mac I just had to place the pb31img.zip file on my fat32 formatted sd card and it would run it after powering up with the power button and vol. down. It says its running correctly but it isnt returning my phone to stock.

    Im stuck at sdk\tools folder

    Exactly where do I get the tools that he mentions here because I never got the sdk files nor will it let me just run commands to my phone through command prompt. Im a newbie so any help would be appreciated.

    Too late to downgrade if 2.2 has d/l but not installed?

    Will this downgrade still save me if 2.2 has downloaded onto the phone but I haven't yet installed it? I thought 2.2 might try to install automatically when the phone is rebooting or restarting during the downgrade process, or will it only try to install 2.2 when I give it the OK to do it.

    Error Message

    I tried to unroot and remove SuperUser/Clockwork Recovery by doing this downgrade. I have firmware version 2.1-update1 - unfortunately when I did this, I got a message after it checked for the zip file and found it: "Update failed! Main version older!"

    Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    I had the same problem and had to boot up a Windows machine and re-format my SD card at FAT32, then put the update.zip on it. Doing the FAT32 format from OS X didn't fix the problem.

    This will remove Root and Custom Recovery (Clockwork) from your handset.



    Instructions:
    1. Place PB31IMG.zip on root of SD Card
    2. Reboot
    3. Hold Down Vol Down into HBoot
    4. It will ask if you want to update
    5. Select Up to accept
    6. Wait..........
    7. it'll finish updating and ask to reboot
    8. select vol + to choose yes
    9. Done


    I tried this twice after verizon updated my droid today to 2.2. It is telling me the file is older then whats installed and wont go further. Have you had a run in with this yet?

    I am having an issue I have not read about. The file initially loads and the bar on the corner right loads. Instead of asking to update it just goes back to the default screen.

    I have tried taking out the sd card and formating it and tried redownloading the zip file from the mirrors and the one posted on the 2nd or 3rd page.
