    Completely new to Rooting, I just upgraded to the HTC Incredible 2 the other day, coming from a Motorola Droid 2 Global.

    Just followed this guide and the process was FLAWLESS.
    I followed the written instructions from the OP alongside the YouTube video here:


    Time to start exploring what I can do with a rooted phone, thanks to everyone!

    It doesn't really matter which way I try, I can't get my computer to recognize my phone. Each time the process gets stuck when the command prompt says "Waiting for Device" --- Any suggestions? Rooted other phones before, but have never had this much trouble.

    Default Re: [GUIDE] Root Gingerbread on your Incredible 2

    Quick question... should I be looking to install ROM Mgr (Clockwork) from the market after this? I was able to get it rooted without much problem (following youtube with the tutorial here), but don't see ROM Mgr in list of apps. Didn't want to install it from the market if it was already installed and just wasn't showing up in the app drawer. Thanks for the tutorial!

    UPDATE: was able to book into Hboot and get into recovery (Clockwork). I created a backup OK, so it appears we are fine, just don't have the app listed and no UI access to it, we only can use the recover mode (which is used most of the time anyway).

    Try a few of the older superusers, anything 2.3.x essentially.
    Maybe even try flashing CWM again if that doesn't work.
    Can you post the exact error message if you still haven't resolved the issue?

    Expect it maybe sometime Friday.
    I want to unroot again to try to lessen the steps, I have class most of tomorrow so hopefully I can get something together in the next day or two.

    Just know unrooting revolutionary and returning your S-ON is possible.

    Ok i still can't load superuser! Here is what is happening when i try and install zip from sd card using revolutionary- E:Can't open /sdcard/su-2.3.1-bin-signed.zip (bad) Installation aborted
    Know i tryed flashing newer and older versions and su-2.3.2-efgh-bin-signed/ but when you choose them in revolutionary it gives you 2 options? META-INF or system/ and when i try to use either off those files the error message says no files found? Did i screw up flashing those into revolutionary?
    When you look at my list off items in revolutionary reboot screen i have 3 different su files, i have
    su-2.3.1 bin-signed.zip
    su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed/
    su-2.3.2-efgh-bin-signed/
    The bottom 2 option don't say zip after them so i must have done something wrong. Please any help would be greatly appreciated. Im not sure on the proper way to flash a file into the revolutionary program.

    When you say you're trying to flash them in Revolutionary you mean the black screen with blue lettering? It should say "Revolutionary" in the background.

    When you look at my list off items in revolutionary reboot screen i have 3 different su files, i have
    su-2.3.1 bin-signed.zip
    su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed/
    su-2.3.2-efgh-bin-signed/

    The bottom 2 option don't say zip after them so i must have done something wrong. Please any help would be greatly appreciated. Im not sure on the proper way to flash a file into the revolutionary program.
    The bottom two were probably folders you mistakenly created by unzipping the .zip files.

    First delete ALL instances of superuser from your SD card, anything that says "su-2.x.x", whether it's a zip, or a folder or anything on the first level of the SD card.
    Download one, I just flashed it last night myself. Do not unzip that file, but place it directly on the SD.
    Reboot into the screen with blue text on the black background (ClockworkMod), and select to clear your data and cache, do so.
    Now go to flash zip from SD, then select the "su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip"

    D:\adb>adb devices
    * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
    * daemon started successfully *
    List of devices attached


    D:\adb>

    followed by this i go for the command fastboot flash recovery recovery.img (i renamed the IMG file as recovery)...then i get


    D:\adb>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    < waiting for device >
    sending 'recovery' (3696 KB)... OKAY [ 1.190s]
    writing 'recovery'... FAILED (remote: not allowed)
    finished. total time: 1.192s

    D:\adb>

    modelid: PG3210000
    cidnum: VZW__001
    mainver: 2.18.605.3

    Have you tried to install ROM Manager from the Market. You can then follow the installation of CyanogenMod 7 via that app. (once you have reached S-OFF) Otherwise take a look at this where .

    Try working on on Cyanogenmod. Maybe flashing the recovery if it's already on the SD card will help. Either way, worth a shot.

    Of course make sure you supplement the fact you may be on a different OS and the different .img name.

    I was just building up the courage to give my first root a try, when I saw that Verizon is rolling out update 2.3.4 (which I have not installed yet). I was just curious if this root method is still viable after the update? If is not, then I'd prefer to root before the update is automatically sent through my Dinc2. Any ideas or suggestions would help. Thanks in advance everyone!

    The update to 2.3.4 will block the Revolutionary root. I would suggest doing the root before you get the update, if anything goes wrong I will have the unrooting procedure out in the next day or two, this update really threw me a curve ball.

    Thanks for getting the word out that the update will block the Rooting process! Hopefully I'll be able to achieve root before the "push" of the update. Been lucky so far.

    Excuse how long overdue this is, but the Unrooting guide is now posted, go check it out.

    Be careful if you unroot, don't accept any OTA's if you want root again in the foreseeable future.

    ***EDIT3: Crisis averted. Message below left for posterity in case anybody else encounters a problem mid root and is afraid to sneeze.***

    _____________________________________

    Crap crap crap. I got to the point where I was telling the phone to choose zip from sd card. I chose it. I told it Yes, install it. It tried to. But then it said:

    E:Can't open /sdcard/su-2.3.6.3-efgh-signed.zip
    (bad)
    Installation aborted.

    Tried a few more times and no good.

    I'm trying to back out of it, but I just get to the screen where the top option is "Reboot system now" and although there is a "Go Back" at the bottom, I can't go any farther back. I'm afraid at this point if I do anything, I'm going to brick it. What do I do? I'm going to post this here but I imagine nobody's watching, so I'll try over at xda too and in other spots on this site and see if I can get any help. I imagine I can just reboot, but what will that leave me with? Nothing? Something? Something horrifying? Hallllp!

    EDIT1: Screw it. I chose reboot. I has rebooted just fine. So I guess it was an attempt that simply didn't do any harm since it failed. I am going to redownload the su-2.3... zip and try again. I will say that my computer didn't want to recognized the drive after I told the thing to install Clockwork Recovery. I don't know if that had anything to do with it. It was fine before when I was loading the su zip on.

    EDIT2: Rebooted computer, redownloaded the su...zip file and tried it all again. I noticed when I was deleting the original su...zip file from the sd card that it was only 6k. That's an issue because the original file was 290k. So it really was bad. Don't know how that happened. Deleted that and replaced it with a fresh, full sized zip file. Ran Revolutionary. Revolutionary said "Your device is already S-OFF, what exactly do you think you're doing? Not setting S-OFF." (guess I got that far last time before I crapped out). And then it asked if I wanted to download and flash ClockworkMod Recovery. I said yes and Revolutionary crashed. Did it two more times and it crashed, crashed. I let it send the error report like I wanted, then tried one last time. It worked! Then I did the steps on the phone again where you have it install the su...zip file. This time it all worked. Superuser, *****es! Yeah! Thanks notluK. Very helpful overview you've done there. Nice and plain Englishy.

    By the way, those of you who tuned in to EDIT1, my computer kept making the mount/unmount this second time at the key action points during the process and trying to tell me it didn't recognize the phone as a drive via usb. Malfunction blah blah blah. But at this point all the action was happening on the phone anyway, not on the computer, so it didn't really matter. And now it recognizes it again just fine now that I'm done. So it wasn't a fluke the first time - that's just how my computer does, I guess.

    Glad you figured it all out, I apologize I wasn't here when it all happened, I'm sure you would have been much less shook up to know nothing was wrong after all. :o

    Actually, when the superuser flash failed like that I think you could have just gone into the market and installed Superuser that way, since to that point you had already flashed the modded HBOOT and installed ClockworkMod, if that makes sense.

    Either way, you made it through!
    Plus there is a certain sense of accomplishment to solving problems on your own when all seems lost, no? :P
