You're sure you're running an unrooted 2.2.1 phone? You should have gotten the OTA to 2.3 a while ago.

Up until a few weeks ago, we had no exploit that worked on gingerbread, so taking the update meant you couldn't root. Now the tool has been updated to only work with gingerbread. You will need to take the OTA or update manually and then you can root using the guide here.

The tool used to only support froyo and now it only supports gingerbread. Period. You may be able to dig up an old unrevoked or something that may do it, but if you go to gb then root and s-off you can flash froyo back if you can find the files still.

Sent from my brain using human to phone transport technology.

You will have to upgrade to GB, root and s-off, restore the froyo RUU and then re-install CWM and Root again. You will have S-off so that will not be that bad.

This thread has the link to the stock froyo RUU. Just stop after you flash the froyo RUU.
http://rootzwiki.com/showthread.php?1766-How-to-restore-to-stock-from-AlpharevX-INCREDIBLE-2-(vivow)-ONLY

Then here you can find instructions to re-flash CWM and root. [Info] After Revolutionary: install Clockworkmod, root & more - xda-developers

I hope this will help you. I know it is not a full guide, but in the time I have that is the best I can do at the moment. Good luck!

Was there a fix for this? I Currently unrooted my DINC2, and Now I am getting "SERVICE UNAVAILABLE" when I try and do "Software Update" via my phone. Someone said download 2.3.4 from Verizon? But I can't find it.

There is an article and a link on Android Police from when the GB update came out. This is 2.3.3 so if you need to root it you will be able. [Download] Exclusive: Official HTC Droid Incredible 2 Gingerbread RUU 2.18.605.4 (Same As The Official Gingerbread OTA)

This is his third thread. I gave him the exact same link in the other thread.

This post is Incredible 2!

Yeah I saw your post after I posted on the two in the hacks sub-forum. Handy link to keep bookmarked. I give that one out constantly in different forums.

No, I Need to get 2.3.4...The software update part of the phone working. It says "SERVICE UNAVAILABLE. PLEASE TRY AGAIN WHEN SERVICE IS AVAILABLE"

Even when I go to Recovery via HBOOT, it starts downloading the Verizon Update, and then a Triangle with a ! comes up. I hit Vol Up and Power, and i get to Install from SD card, and it fails.

If you restored to 2.2.1, 2.3.3 is the update it is trying to download. 2.3.3 will download first. Then once on 2.3.3 your phone should find 2.3.4. If you are planning on rooting once you install the 2.3.3 update I linked, root it before updating to 2.3.4. Otherwise, once you install 2.3.3, you should be able to go check for update and the OTA will update to 2.3.4.
