well i found my first problem, i had a bad download. it was completely different from the correct one, so idk what was up with that. Now my problem is that when i get to the fastboot rebootRUU it just says waiting for device on both the script and when i manually copy and paste from the original post. I read that this probably means that fastboot isnt working, but i believe it is working, i added it to the path

Check that drivers are installed for fastboot too, not just adb. In the bootloader, when you have the phone plugged into your computer, it should show "Android phone" in device manager, not listed as an unknown device.

Glad it worked out for you. Have fun trying out new roms and stuff. I personally think that aeroevan makes great roms, along with kernels to go with them. You should check out his ICS rom.

Wizkid pmed me saying he could not get into recovery, he just got a yellow triangle. If this helps anyone, here is what I pmed him back.

You need to flash clockworkmod recovery. You can flash it in the bootloader by running this command.

fastboot flash recovery recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-vivow.img
Where recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-vivow.img is the recovery image for clockwork mod on the Incredible 2. You can obtain the recovery-clockwork-5.0.2.0-vivow.img at http://download.cloc...0.2.0-vivow.img

If you need any more help, post in the panic room if you are soft bricked or bricked.
In windows, the drivers for fastboot may be different. If it does not work, do it in linux.

Does a moderator mind pinning this? I think it is helpful for 1st time androiders who want s-off/root.

FWIW I couldn't get the downgrade script to work until I reset the phone to factory. Just kept failing half way in, when it rebooted it never pushed anything to the phone even though I had USB debugging on and fastboot off. Just my 2 cents for anyone who runs into a similar problem.

Don't know why that would happen, but I'm glad it worked for you.

I've tried running (both as administrator and normally) the attn1 tool but nothing is happening. It just quickly opens and closes the cmd terminally and nothing happens. What do I do?

**EDIT**

so I got it to run, but now the script isn't working. It just sticks at a black screen with "htc" sitting on it. What do I do now?

Keep it on the black screen with HTC. It should eventually install the update after 5 mins or so. Is there a progress bar?

OH! Okay I'll try it again. There isn't a progress bar and the cmd terminal closes when it's at that screen.
