Unrevoked Root Method for HTC Incredible

38

Looking for a pain-free way to root your HTC Incredible?  The folks responsible for unrEVOked have released unrEVOked 3 which now supports a one click rooting process for the HTC Incredible.  Its quick, easy ,and best of all, there are no commands to enter.  Like its predecessors, version 3 uses an exploit to unlock the NAND flash long enough to flash a custom recovery image which allows for root access.  Linux and Mac users will find a neat and tidy self -contained program, while Windows users are required to download the necessary drivers separately.  Overall its a small price to pay for root access.

Has anyone had any luck with the current version unrEVOked?  Sound off in the comments.

    • I can't get make the revoked link work, and the 1st set of drivers is unregocnizeable by my computer!??
      I can get into hboot mode on the phone, but my computer also will not see my DI as a new device, even though I've unistalled HTC sync and the HTC drivers. HELP!

  1. I did it this morning and it was very easy. Since I only rooted and didn’t flash a custom ROM, should I still be expecting the OTA Incredible update with hotpot soon?

  2. I have problem download and install some apk games and apps. force close or error after used unrevoked 3.
    please help with the error anyone.

  3. I just did it, when I did hboot at first I didn’t know I was supposed to have control panel>device manager open and adding drivers as it was going on….just a little harder than when I jail broke mah iPad

    My only ? Is when I wanna flash a rom that rqres nand to be unlocked do I have to re run unrevoked3? Idk as of now I’ll look around if ya know or need help

  4. Man, I wish the Inc had been an easier nut to crack. I ended up having to do 2 separate roots on my Inc. The first one went pretty well, the second time I had an extremely difficult time. I'm going to try this on my gf's Inc tonight, if it works as well as the reflash tool it should be a breeze.

  5. ive been trying all day. Ive got the driver installed, and it shows up in device manager below my android device (desire) Ive tried running unrevoked 3 as admin and not, but it just says "waiting for device,Plug phone in now and enable usb debugging" which i have. USB mode is set to charge. any help appreciated

  6. did this on my HTC Incredible, I am pretty sure I have SU access, installed wireless tether by Harald Muller,
    turn it on & my laptop can detech the SSID and connect, but webpage will not open due to no connection! whats the problem, how do I get WIFI tethering to work?

    • Even with SU access from unrEVOked, you need to run your tether using the appropriate kernel to get full WiFi access. Without the ap-inc kernel, you will only be able to run ad-hoc connections, which could be why your wireless tether isn’t working properly.

      Since you’ve already have SU, check out this video

      Download and extrac the zip file from the notes. Paste the “ap-inc” (3rd folder) to the root of your SD card and follow his instructions (in the last 4 minutes of the video).

      Good luck!

    • what did you do? i got the drivers finally but no success with the rooting still! gets all the way to the end and says interrupted!

  7. no luck! every time i run it (that is after I finally found the drivers) it gets to the very end and says it has been interrupted please try again! VERY ANNOYING!
    NEVER had an issue before!!!

  8. i have the WORST luck with my phone and programs. I have been trying for 45 min to just download the damn usb installation on my computer and it is nowhere to be found everytime i go to browse for it. I tried extracting it and suddenly it wont appear on the device manager, then my phone didnt turn on for 20 min no matter what i did and as of right now it just turned off again after i finally got it back on. Pls all I want is to be able to take screenshots for my job anD I am having the worst luck, about to throw the phone and computer. someone pls help me figure this damn mess out.
