    i dont think timing has anything to do with it at the moment... i think there something else going on and they are trying to figure that out

    See what I don't understand is if it's rooted, fine. How the heck do you install something without a physical keyboard?

    I wish i had an Inc now.....lol I live for moments like this.

    Is there a way to found out very specific details of the cpu's in smartphones: revisions, etc.? I had a theory about those things and why some ppl have problems with their Droids.

    There has to be a common denominator for the folks that got it to work if its not timing: were they using Core 2 Duo's, PIII's, Intel, AMD', what USB controller, chipset is in their PC, what OS were they running, etc.

    I'm excited and I dont even have an Inc. LOL!!

    U know u can use SP and CW on the Droid without the keyboard: volume keys, camera button and power button.

    this is his method: according to him it does not have the su apk.

    Root process, my regurgitation of it, with Perm Part added.

    I DID NOT MAKE THE ROOT PROCEDURE ALL PROPS GO TO THE TEAM AT
    UNREVOKED. I just tacked on the perm procedure and regurgitated it in my own words. \

    ************DISCLAIMER**********
    I nor anyone else is responsible if you break your phone. try this at your own risk!!
    ***********END DISCLAIMER**************

    Original procedure here:
    public:adb_in_recovery [RootWiki]

    donate here:
    https://secure.eff.org/site/Donation...donation=form1

    I am just compiling the Current procedure here.

    Install the android SDK
    Android SDK | Android Developers

    Install HTC Sync

    Download these three files and place them into your android/tools folder
    http://www.shadowmite.com/temp/payload-update.zip
    http://www.unrevoked.com/incredible/ota.zip
    http://www.unrevoked.com/incredible/busybox

    Shut down your phone and plug it into USB

    Click on start
    then on box at the bottom of your start menu
    type cmd

    a command window will pop up

    navigate to the android SDk Tools directory

    type edit loop.bat
    in the edit program enter the following lines exactly

    Code:
    @ECHO OFF
    :TOP
    adb shell
    goto TOP
    Save the file

    type loop and press enter

    you should see the screen fill up with "error: device not found"

    Press and hold the volume down button then press the power button. Once it starts booting, release the buttons.

    Wait a couple seconds.

    Use the volume down once to highlight recovery

    press the power button

    wait a few seconds within 5-10 seconds it should change from "error: device not found" to "exec '/system/bin/sh' failed: No such file or directory (2) -"


    If you do not get this message within 5-10 seconds pull the battery and do it over again.

    Once you get the above message then click on the cmd window and press ctrl-C to stop the batch file.

    now you should still be in the triangle with the ! screen. press vol up and power to go back to the menu. DO NOT REBOOT.

    Press vol down to apply: update.zip and press the power button

    It will fail at this.

    Go back to the CMD window and type the following commands.

    Code:
    adb push busybox /sdcard/busybox
    adb push ota.zip /sdcard/update.zip
    Now type the next command but DO NOT PRESS ENTER YET

    Code:
    adb push payload-update.zip /sdcard/update.zip
    Now press the power button on Apply: update.zip within 1/2 second press enter on the command window to execute the above command.

    If successful you should see

    “unrEVOked for Incredible” with some other stuff

    Now type the following commands to make it persistent through reboot

    Code:
    adb shell
    su
    /system/bin/cat /system/bin/sh > /system/bin/su
    /system/bin/chmod 4777 /system/bin/su
    to get rid of city id do this

    Code:
    /system/bin/rm /system/app/CityID.apk
    choose reboot from the menu and Your phone will now reboot and you will have​
