HTC Incredible :: Rooting My Incredible With Unrevoked 3 Stuck At Waiting For Root

Nov 30, 2010

I had a rooted Incredible using this method before however I had a problem with the on screen keyboard so I got a replacement. The replacement just came yesterday. Now I am rooting the replacement and the Unrevoked 3 program gets stuck at "Waiting for root... (Safe to restart if this doesn't work)"

I have the HBOOT drivers installed and my phone comes up in device manager as "Android Composite ADB Interface"

Did they apply a new update to the phone that prevents rooting? If so how long before I can get around it?

HTC Incredible :: Rooting With New SD Card?

Jul 15, 2010

I'm going to root my phone tonight once home from EMS crew. I want to keep my Stock SD card so that if anything happens I can just pop it back in. With the new one, will I need to preinstall all current and stock files/ folders or will it be formatted once I put it in for the first time pre-root?

HTC Incredible :: Rooting Without Installing A Rom

Aug 19, 2010

I'm tired of waiting for the wifi hotspot feature in froyo. My question is can I just root my phone and use one of the wifi tether apps or do I have to install one of the ROM's. I really can't risk downtime on my phone, so I'm a little scarred of loading a ROM.

HTC Incredible :: Need Rooting Dinc 2.2 For Dummies

Sep 15, 2010

I'm a newbie, and, though I am really good at following instructions, I have no clue how to root my Incredible. All I want to do is turn the damn S to whatever, so I can tether my i pad for a bit. I don't want to remove anything, change anything, change a Rom (I think), or the like. I just want to be able to tether for a couple weeks, while on vacation. Since revoked 3 is down, I can access the beta. But, I need a site/thread that gives me really easy instructions on what to press and what not to press. So, since this is the only forum I trust, point me in the right direction, or give me a clue on the root for your parents version.

HTC Incredible :: Rooting Due To HW Issue - VZW Techs

Nov 15, 2010

It started the phantom screen changing due to the trackball. I thought it was first my InvisibleSHIELD and then after removing it, I read up about the trackball and have done everything possible to clean it but no dice.

Anyways, I'd like to backup some applications and their data, i.e. Angry Birds and Alchemy via Titanium Backup.

I have no qualms about rooting my phone, but if I'm going to exchange it out for a new device, will a VZW tech be able to tell that I have rooted if they start nosing around for a possible fix? If so, again no big deal about un-rooting it as I have read up on how to do both topics.

I don't expect them to really know considering they used their own web forums when I took my wife's LG Ally in due to the "time without signal" flaw.

HTC Incredible :: Unrevoked3 - Having Trouble Rooting

Sep 29, 2010

I've searched for hours for this, so I apologize if it's answered elsewhere, I simply can not find a solution that works.when I start up Unrevoked for the Incredible, it says to plug my phone in. I do that, making sure it says debug mode is enabled in the drop-down pane. But the unrevoked screen doesn't change I've tried:
- mounting as disk drive
- "charge only"
- one Windows XP PC and one Windows 7 PC
- removed PdaNet and tried those options again
Nothing gets me past that screen. I tried looking for an HTC Sync app to uninstall, or setting to disable (since it says "make sure it is NOT installed"), but I wasn't able to find anything.

I finally got the guts to do root, and this is my problem.When I am trying to connect to my device i get this error message in the middle of the loop of the adb shell

HTC Incredible :: Rooting And Using Cyanogen Mods?

Apr 30, 2010

Are there any developers online working on getting this thing rooted? Im currently an eris user and it took forever to get that thing rooted. And Im loving it for now, but im aware of its current limitations. But since I been rooted, I pretty much have an irish twin of the incredible. live wallpapers with sense, and all of the 2.1 features. Id be totally psyched about purchasing an incredible (would have to be bought at full price though), rooting it and using cyanogen mods on it. What a glorious day that would be, when that its possible. Right now I'm not too concerned with the incredible just yet. I'm not frustrated enough with my rooted eris to want to forsake it for its replacement. Have fun with your new devices though people.

HTC Incredible : WiFi Tethering Without Rooting

Nov 28, 2010

Rooting sounds like a great thing, but right now the only thing I want is WiFi tethering. I found the following instructions to get free WiFi tethering on my Incredible using verizons hotspot app that came with with Froyo upgrade a few months ago.. So far , it works fine (although I do have to reset the wireless adapter on whatever machine I want to tether to the phone, but that only take 2 seconds).

1. Dial ##778
2. Go into edit mode
3. The password is 000000
4. Once in go to M.IP Default Profile and edit DUN NAI from to
5. Then hit menu and press commit modifications.
6. It should then reboot.
7. FREE WiFi!!!

HTC Incredible :: Rooting - What Will Happen With OTA Froyo?

Aug 5, 2010

Sorry if this has been asked before -

With the ease of the unrevoked root method, I'm thinking about rooting my Incredible.

I'm by no means an advanced user (command line what?), but would definitely like to download some of the more popular root-only applications.

I have no intentions of messing with new roms/kernels...just wifi tethering, nandroid, etc.

What will happen when the official Froyo update comes out? Will I be able to upgrade without trouble?

I've looked at the sticky about reverting to stock in case something goes wrong, and it looks a little over my head. Will I have to do that to enjoy the official Froyo update?

HTC Incredible :: Rooting On 2.2 - ROM With Awesome Battery Life

Sep 16, 2010

I am a new rooter on 2.2. I want something easy to install without getting into new kernals, hopefully the least amount of fiddling around. I want something that is awesome with battery life. that is my #1 concern. Speed is not so important to me. Something that is close to Sense is virtuous for me?

HTC Incredible :: Installing Custom Roms / Rooting

Sep 27, 2010

I have been using the INC for about 2 months now and i really do like the phone. As all of you know, the battery sucks. I picked up the 1500 battery about the same time the 2.2 came out and the battery life dropped over the 2.1/stocker. I thought it may have been the battery so i used the stock 1300 for a while and it was TERRIBLE. To add to the issue, the battery takes longer to charge then it does die. And thats why i am posting this. Could someone give me a list of what i need to do while rooting my phone and installing custom roms? that will speed up charge time? Normally i wont ask for help like this but i have zero time to sit down and read about everything. Just looking for a simple fix to get me by for the next few months.

HTC Incredible :: Leaked OTA And Rooting / How To Install Official Update?

Jul 21, 2010

So I just got done installing the leaked OTA and rooting my phone, but now I've read conflicting reports that when Froyo comes out in a couple weeks, I won't be able to install it without going back to stock 2.1. Even worse, going back to stock means erasing all the data and apps on my phone. I was under the impression that one could use Titanium backup to make sure all apps, data, and settings can be re-imaged to the phone, but then I realized that Titanium only works if you have root, which I won't if I go back to stock. But when the official update comes out, how do I install it without losing all my data? Why can't I just install it on top of the rooted OTA update OS?
