    Hi everybody

    First of all I want to let you know that I have done my homework and could not find an answer to my question

    a month ago I bricked my phone and I ended up with a fried emmc (don't ask me how), anyway after a lot of digging I recognized my problem so I bought a replacement emmc chip from this site:
    HTC Droid Incredible 2 SanDisk SDIN5C2-8G Flash Chip - Parts4repair.Com

    After replacing the chip the phone came back to life (Finally!!), the chip came pre-loaded with a Chinese Rom (Which I think is based on the Chinese version of the incredible 2 which is the S710D) although I'm not sure of that. First thing I thought of is to check the firmware and Hboot versions of the device so as to root it again and here is what I got:

    Android version: 2.3.3
    Software number: quens_gb_so1

    Kernel version:
    2.6.35.9-g6760582
    htc-kernel@and18-2#1

    Baseband version: 20.23W.30.0803U_0.99.01.0225_2


    and in Hboot I get:

    vivo_w xb ship s-off rl
    hboot-0.97.0000
    radio-0.99.01.0225_2

    it does not say anything about whether it is unlocked or not and it is not a Revolutionary Hboot although the device is S-off (Weird thing to me !!).

    Now I know I'm not supposed to flash Chinese based Roms on an incredible 2 and of course I can't also flash incredible 2 Roms on Chinese devices, Now my question is >>> What sort of Rom should I flash to this device ????, it is an Incredible 2 with a replaced emmc chip pre-flashed with what I think is a chinese Rom.

    Note:
    1- CWM 4.0.0.2 is the installed recovery.
    2- Before I got the brick the device was rooted and S-off via Revolutionary.


    Your help is appreciated

    Hello.
    I read your message and I want to ask you help me for replacement of fired chip. whether I can change them. I mean I heard that it isn't possible with direct heat. is that true.
    If that's true how can change fired chips.
    Your help is appreciated.
