    So i rooted my Dinc yesterday with no problems using your guidelines and have been trying to flash CM RC2. I used Rom manager and when it installs I get stuck at a screen with the logo that has an arrow circling around it. I then have to do a battery pull and restore my stock rom. I have done this about a half dozen times. Any ideas?

    Also....I flashed a rom called fusion ice and it worked fine but there is no link for the market and it won't let me sync contacts with google. I used the browser to go to the market and dl titanium backup(where I saved all my apps of course) and I installed it but the app was nowhere to be found on my phone. I'm back on my stock rom for now but if this happens with another rom is there something I can do? I installed this rom twice once with ROM manager and once with Clockwork Recovery.

    Once last thing. When I hook my phone to my PC(using windows) I have two SD card files. One is removable storage G (FAT 32) and the other is rem st H (FAT). What's the difference and which one do I want to be my saving my files to?

    Sorry for all the questions guys. I tried to figure things out on my own and it just wasn't working.
    I had just about the same problem when i was installing CM7 RC1 using Rom Manager. When I dl'd CM7 manually and put it on my SD, installed from THAT zip file, everything went fine and i booted like normal into the new CM7 rom.

    So, try downloading it manually. Personally it wasn't a good 1st experience with Rom Manager for me, so i think i'll stear clear of it.

    Edit: To answer your Q about the two SD cards showing up on your computer, check the sizes to see which one is the real SD card, and which one is just the internal storage. You want to be saving your files to the real SD card.

    Thank you so much for the help guys. I didn't realize that I had to flash the google apps after flashing the ROM. I tried downloading CM7 RC2 again but instead of doing it through ROM manager I did it through cw recovery but used the file that was saved on ROM manager and it worked perfectly. Only bad thing was my contacts weren't synced to my GMail acct(except for one I added last week) so I have to manually input all my numbers again. Love having root and custom ROMs so far!

    My understanding is that you need to start unrevoked from terminal as root, then it should work.

    I have not done it myself on linux, but this is my understanding. Others who have done a linux unrevoked may be able to help if this does not work.

    Good Luck!

    that's weird. The only time I remember getting something similar to that was when i deleted everything off my sd card (advice, DO NOT DELETE EVERYTHING OFF YOUR SD CARD!!! haha).

    I think (from what I have been hearing) that unrevoked has made rooting and turning s-off an all in 1 process. Double check to see if it is already off. If not, what steps did you get stuck at exactly? just when trying to turn s-off in after reboot?

    It rooted without turning S-off. When I try and do a update from HBOOT I go in and try to load from SDCARD and it gives the errors. I've tryed with a full SD card and a reformatted one with the update.zip file and as the unrevoked.zip file. I have a 8g class 2 SD card do I need something different?

    I want to get rid of the trash apps (stocks,skype...) but I can't right now.

    Thanks for the help

    Try running Unrevoked again. Download the latest version from here:
    unrevoked3 recovery reflash tool, v3.32

    It should give you S-OFF as a part of the process.

    Make sure you follow the directions here:
    public:unrevoked3 [RootWiki]

    Hope this helps

    I tried to unroot my phone for warranty purposes. I am back to stock ROM but I still have S-Off. When I try to adb push the Unrevoked files, it says error: device not found.
    What can I do now to get S-On?

    my friend has a DInc and he wants me to root it to get themes, roms, and all that stuff. everything on here makes perfect sense to me but during the windows hboot driver installation instructions it says to download the androidusbdriver.zip and expand it. is expanding it another way of saying to extract it? cause i cannot seem to find the androidusbdriver.zip when im browsing.

    thank you

    I'm on the fence about rooting and I have a couple of questions. Sorry if this is the wrong place to ask but its late and I'm on my phone.

    Do I have to back up anything before i root because I dont want to lose the data stored on my phone

    Second after rooting will the rest of the phone will stay the same right? Like It will be the same before and after save for the stuff rooting does/adds

    third do I have to wipe my phone before rooting in which case this goes back to question one

    Thanks

    Rooting will not change anything on your phone except give you the ability to have Superuser permissions. You can root without worrying about wiping or resetting your phone. Everything will be as it was before.

    Oh, alright. Thanks a lot. I may root today, or hold off until official support runs dry for the Incredible. (crosses fingers for gingerbread). Thanks again!

    This guide was amazing. Every phone model would be lucky to have a compendium like this, because it made it incredibly easy.

    Well done.
