    Hey guys, I'm not sure what's wrong. The Unrevoked program seemed to work fine, as did the s-off (when I go into recovery it says s-off), but I can't get root access to any of my programs! Does anyone have any idea what's wrong?

    Do you have the superuser app installed (by ChainsDD)? If not, install that (the free version works fine). This will allow you to manage the app permissions for root access.

    I do, but still, no luck. When I open the app, there's nothing in it...just blank. When I try to access an app requiring a rooted phone, I get nothing. It's shockingly frustrating!

    Then you don't have root, you only S-off'd the phone. Redo your root process.

    A simple and easy fix would be to make sure you at least have ClockWork recovery, if you do I would simply just flash a rom. They all have root built in. Seems your missing the su in /system/xbin all roms will have this included.

    How, though? Especially if we can't root. I'm a little confused. Thanks!

    Try booting into recovery. If you see the stock recovery, run Unrevoked again. If you see ClockworkMod recovery, try flashing a ROM.

    Your bootloader will not change. Your recovery, however, will. As long as Unrevoked did it's thing. Like I said above. Boot into recovery, if it is stock recovery, run Unrevoked again. If you see ClockworkMod recovery, go ahead and flash a ROM.

    I just said your bootloader will not change. I think you need to do a bit more reading before you try rooting.

    Unrevoked is the program you use on your computer to root your device. If you are unaware of even that basic root knowledge, I really do not think you are ready to root. Have you even looked at this thread? http://forum.androidcentral.com/htc-...ncredible.html

    But in your bootloader you will see the option to boot into recovery, select it and relay what you see. If a big triangle rerun unrevoked, if green text flash an older style rom.

    okay 3 things....

    1- thank you for the reply

    2- Im willing to admit when I am wrong.... therefore I made the mistake in not telling you that Im on a mytouch 4g

    3- i know how to root, and i am not a noob, however I am not a developer nor a programmer. I do a lot of reading and I am very familiar with this process overall it's just that i am new to the droid world and I like many, need just a little hand holding rather than snarky remarks. maybe you can point me to a mytouch 4g link that might answer my question? or would the link you provided help me in my case as well?

    Do you not know how to navigate a forum? Why are you in the Incredible forums asking questions? There is an entire seperate forum dedicated to the MT4G. Obviously you do not know how to root, otherwise you wouldn't be here asking questions. Please go post in the proper forums instead of cluttering ours.

    Frankly, it's beyond me why you're asking questions about rooting a mytouch 4G in the Incredible forum (and knowing which device you're trying to root could have saved everyone here, including yourself, a bit of trouble). The process is different, and we won't necessarily know how to root a MT4G. Go ask on the MT4G board.

    Because I told you to follow forum rules? What if I had a little tag next to my name that said "Moderator"? Would I still be a ****, or would you have apologized and scurried off to your proper forums? You need to think a bit more before making posts.

    I got the triangle. I tried to re-run Unrevoked, and now I'm getting some message about Zsploit... not working and having to force close. And yes, I followed the instructions exactly in the thread. I'm lost! Oh, and of course...mine IS for an Incredible.
