    Default Unable to unroot

    Can someone please help me out. Still a bit of a newbie as I am coming from Blackberry. I manually updated to the official Verizon 2.2 and rooted my Dinc. I didn't install any custom Roms or anything like that. I held off on the maintenance update but now that I want to do the OTA update is says it will reboot to install but never does and can't update manually either. Searched the forum and YouTube on how to unroot or update to unroot but nothing has worked. I even tried doing a factory restore as well but to no avail. Any help is appreciated.

    You have to put a file on the root of your sd card. What error does it give you?

    Put this on the root of your sd card PB31IMG.zip load up hboot . Then http://android.clients.google.com/pa...lease_sign.zip name this file update.zip . Reboot into hboot, select recovery. Now the screen will have a funny picture, press the volume up key and power button. Now select 'run update.zip

    Is there a way to unroot if you have already applied the new OTA? If I try and use your method above I get this: Main Version is older! Update fail!

    Does anyone want to post a clear, step-by-step guide to unrooting? I want to root my Dinc, but want to make sure I'm totally clear on how to go back to stock first (plus, the unrevoked web site seems to be down, so I have some waiting to do).

    But...

    If you do the "stock" with s-off, you're still s-off. And then you can't get s-on with the stock hboot. So that wouldn't work for send ins or whatever....

    Somehow I got s-on, and then ran the ruu over the current stock...which worked somehow.... I got the file at dougpiston.com I am not totally sure if its back to completely unrooted stock thought.

    I am marking this page so its easy for me to find if needed sounds easy to unroot this way as long as you follow the instructions

    as far as getting s back on I found this it sounds like using this file will get s back on if thats what you want

    I did exactly what you said in your unrooting instructions and am worried I just "bricked my Phone". I get a white triangle with an exlamation point inside and a little green guys underneath.

    Any thoughts???

    Was just searching the android world and came across this thread. The PB31IMG in the OP is a 1.xx radio and .79 hboot. This is not a good plan for Slcd devices. To correctly unroot with s-on you can go here: How to unroot the Incredible. | doug piston

    This way works on both devices and you'll have up-to-date software. (Meaning the 3.26 build)

    Sorry to **** in but saving one person of the pita that downgrading that far on a slcd is worth it.

    To upstreammiami, Thank you so much it worked perfectly. Sorry it took so long to get back at you. Just been really busy. I think it had to do with the fact that I had changed the kernel on my phone but all is well now. Your awesome. Now if you would have asked me about Blackberry phones I would have been all over it lol. Now I just need to learn about Android. With people like you I am on the right track.

    I was beginning to think people didn't care in this forum. Now I have Froyo with the update patch. Just looking for an awesome kernel to flash. Would you happen to know where I can find the stock HTC Incredible kernel?

    Virtuous ROM: Download

    Under the "Kernel options" section you'll see stock kernel.

    Thanks. I was using a stock under-volted kernel from Hydra Kernels.
