The folks behind unrevoked did it again! They have now released ‘unrevoked forever’ which basically unlocks your HTC EVO or HTC Droid Incredible forever ;) You can get OTA updates and your device will remain rooted. Don’t you love your Android phone!
Before you install unrevoked forever you should check out the safety information [from http://unrevoked.com/rootwiki/doku.php/public/forever]:
We know you just want to install unrevoked forever. However, before you do, please read this section in its entirety. It contains important information to avoid bricking your phone.
We believe unrevoked forever to be safe for your phone. However, forever unlocks a few capabilities that make it substantially easier to cause (in some cases, permanent) damage. Here are a list of things to be aware of:
As with all hacks to your phone's firmware, setting your phone
S-OFFwill void the warranty on your phone. Do not take your phone in for support until you have set your phone
S-ONand removed all custom modifications. Damaging your phone by flashing a custom bootloader, or other unusual combinations of firmware, is not covered under warranty; although your carrier may not check to see if your phone was modified, please be honest.
unrevoked forever allows you, among other things, to reflash the
hbootpartition on your phone. Doing so carries risk; a bad
hbootflash can render the phone permanently unusable. Be cautious about where you accept updates from.
When doing updates, be sure to flash all partitions at the same time. For instance, on Incredible, running a 0.92
hbootand a 2.15
radiowith a 2.6.29 Linux kernel will result in the system becoming unusable until reflashed.
When updating using an official OTA, update using an official
recovery. See below for instructions.
unrevoked forever comes with NO WARRANTY (express or implied), and NO GUARANTEE OF FITNESS for any particular task. Although we have attempted to minimize the risk the best we can, the authors do not disclaim any chance of damage to your phone. The entire risk of running unrevoked forever lies with you, the user.
Now that you have read the safety information you can decide to install unrevoked forever, to do so you’ll need a rooted HTC Incredible or HTC EVO. You can use unrevoked 3 to do this, see our instructions @ Unrevoked 3 now supports HTC Droid Incredible.
Then use the installation instructions @ http://unrevoked.com/rootwiki/doku.php/public/forever#installation_instructions to install unrevoked forever.
