    I have a Droid Incredible that won't boot past the HTC screen. I got the phone like this so I don't know the history. I can get into recovery and I installed the PB31IMG.zip file. It installed fine, but still can't get past the HTC screen on reboot. It has the stock recovery so I don't believe it has been rooted. I also downloaded the RUU file but I get the usb error (170) and did have the lastest sync installed from HTC. Would a bricked phone still be able to get into recovery? I've been searching and messing with this thing all day. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    When you say the PB31IMG.zip seems to load find fine does it show a bluebar on the side and ask if you want to update? And it is the stock recovery?

    If you can get to recovery, more then likely the phone can be saved.

    Yes, I got the status bar and clicked yes to update. Would it be okay to do it again?

    First of where did you get zip from? Before I tell you just to flash something I would like to know what it is. No bricks to be caused by myself

    Alright I should of had ya just do this in the first place, sorry for wasting your time. When you ran the RUU it will have put the files it was going to transfer in your temp folder.

    cmr>run>%TEMP%

    It will pull up a bunch of files find the that says rom.zip. I usually just use the search button from here. There are usually a lot of files there and it'll be in one of those files.
    Or go to %TEMP% and delete all the files there then re run the RUU. it'll be easier to find that way.

    Take the rom.zip from it and name PB31IMG.zip. Mkae sure you have your pc showing file extensions so it doesn't get named .zip.zip

    Put on your SD card then boot into hboot again. And the phone should ask to update. You know the deal.

    This was it assures you that you have a clean img to install.
