Would I just need to manually root it by...... HTC Dev Unlock and Root


(^_^) HTC Dev Unlock and Root. Would I just need to manually root it by adb commands ?

[Q] HTC Dev Unlock and Root

So I did the HTC Dev site unlock method that was just released on my 2.3.4 incredible thinking that unrevoked or some other method wouldn't work on the latest OTA. My phone is unlocked but I would just like to root it now. In the process of doing that it updated (by RUU) the hboot to 1.02.0000

I used the HTC unlock method with a bricked dinc with s-on I had laying around. This didn't fix my problem but I still could play with hboot/fastboot. I'm far from a pro but It doesn't give you true s-off. Says *unlocked* at the top of the bootloader but stil says s-on below it. Tried to run a recovery from hboot and didn't take. Main version older it said I believe. Fastboot flash recovery seemed to take but can't boot to anything to confirm.

Sorry, this is the HTC Incredible forum. I have 0 experience with your phone.

You should be able to just flash clockwork recovery thru hboot as a PB31IMG.zip http://dinc.does-it.net/Recoveries/C....0/PB31IMG.zip.
And then flash the su binary thru recovery. http://dinc.does-it.net/SuperUser/SuperUser_3.0.7.zip.
Then you should be fully rooted. Just download Busybox and install it and your good to go.
That should work. I have never done or had any experience yet with the HTC Unlock, but it should give you the same abilities that the unrevoked s-off would.

I recently started the root process by unlocking my bootloader utilizing the HTCDev Method with S-On (HBOOT- 2.18.0001). Now I'm unlocked! The next step (I guess) is to flash a custom recovery which I'm having difficulty doing. Granted, there are several ways to install a custom recovery. I utilized two of those ways, 1) Through Bootloader and 2) via ROM Manager; both have proved unsuccessful for me.
Is the reason why I can't flash a custom recovery is because I'm not fully rooted? According to this page one on this thread if my S is On then I'm not considered rooted. The HTCDev Method only unlocks the bootloader leaving the S-On.
Am on the right path (now that my bootloader is unlocked) to flash a custom recovery? If so, why am I having trouble flashing a custom
recovery?
Here are my specs as they read on HBOOT Screen

Well, I was curious, so I flashed the RUU for HBOOT, and went ahead and "Unlocked" it, however I was already S-OFF from Unrevoked. So I can still downgrade to an older HBOOT or even use the 2.2 RUU. I'm not sure what the point of it being "Unlocked" is if it isn't actually S-OFF.
The HBOOT update didn't touch my recovery, so CWM stayed put. It does wipe data though, but I just restored the data in recovery for CM7.
I think HBOOT may be telling you that the main version is older, is because in the PB31IMG for CWM it still has the froyo recovery info. I wonder if changing it to the latest version in the info would allow it to flash? Idk, just throwing ideas around.
However HTC's Site says that you can still change everything but the radio.
Why is my security still on (S-On) after I have unlocked my bootloader?
Your device is shipped with Security on (S-ON) to protect your system software configuration (such as the bootloader, radio, boot, recovery, system and others). After you have unlocked the bootloader, however, you will have lifted the restrictions on boot, recovery and system. This means you can customize boot, recovery and system images on your phone as you desire. You can easily see that you have successfully unlocked the bootloader by looking at the top of the screen when entering the bootloader screen. Security is left on to protect things like the radio, and SIM lock.
Too bad HTC can't just make their own custom recovery, like CWM, and bundle it with the unlock tool.

Yeah it does the same thing to me when I try to flash CWM recovery. It just says " main version older! " and has the option of volume down to do nothing or volume up to reboot.

Wrong thread, but you need to find and fastboot flash the correct cwm recovery img for your phone. From there you can flash roms or procede to downgrade and get s-off.
