What do you think about this video?

Brandon McCrary: Can't respond to your comment Dakota. I would unlock the boot loader again, flash TWRP recovery and install a stock rom

Dakota Werner: Hey, Brandon. My friend's Incredible 2 is bricked, I can't find a working RUU anywhere in able to get it out of the current stage. It just sticks at the first HTC screen upon booting. I've tried to do the .exe updates but they don't have a updater for his current version. His bootloader says VIVO_W XB SHIP S-ON RL HBOOT-O.98.0000 RADIO-1.09.01.0312 I've tried relocking the bootloader and installing PG32IMG through his SD with no avail. Please help!

lloyd norbal: Your nexus!!! Optimus prime version...

Julio Ortiz: please help!!! when i do this all it does is check the zip file. i have named it PG32IMG it doesnt give me the option to install it. my bootloader menu says VIVO_W XB SHIP S-ON RL HBOOT-0.98.0000 RADIO-1.09.01.0312 eMMC-boot

Samy Hassan: I need the stock rom for 4.0.4 optus stock rom ( Australia )

Darren Rankin: hey just bought a incredible 2 off ebay, its stuck on bootloader though with s-on and locked. My computer also cant recognize it, so i cant do anything to it with computer. Do i have any chance or is this thing dead? bootloader seems to work fine though

Louis Encarnacion: You can upload de stock rom? I dont find this rom

Vincent Garcia: Yo Brandon are you on right now? My phone has been a brick all day. I've followed your steps correctly, and my phone has loaded the PG32IMG.zip, and can go through the first two levels of loading, but I do not get the third screen- the one with the TP bypass and etc. After the reddish bar loads up I am just taken back to the Hboot menu. How do I get past this? I am stuck in this loop and it's killing me

Mary Sharp: Your ruu isn't working anymore any way you can put it up again?

Erwing Gallegos: Hey man, so I restored the nandroid backup in my incredible s (stock rom) but when I hit reboot it just reboots and goes back to recovery. I already tried flashing the boot image from the backup but still no luck.

battlerockmegaman: On CMD I type in bootfast oem lock and it says command not recognized please help I bricked my phone

Alejandro Constanzo: Help me (main version is older! update fail )

ezequiel dlc: please help!!! when i do this all it does is check the zip file. i have named it PG32IMG it doesnt give me the option to install it. my bootloader menu says VIVO_W XB SHIP S-ON RL HBOOT-0.98.0000 RADIO-1.09.01.0312 eMMC-boot

battlerockmegaman: Thanks man, is your email address from your other post on how to root your phone still in use so I can email you? 

Brandon McCrary: check the description for the ruu

Brandon McCrary: Did you take the latest OTA?

Brandon McCrary: @Stebthefirst Why not flash another ROM?

Brandon McCrary: That means you don't have the Android SDK or you aren't in that folder

xburtonboardnx: I tried to root my phone and failed so I'm trying to unroot it and return to stock. The RUU file you linked won't finish when I run the wizard, it gives an error message. And the PG32IMG file says No image as well. My Hboot says .98.0000 just like yours but my radio ends in .0312 unlike yours. please help.

Brandon McCrary: @Brad Jackson Not sure what you mean

Brandon McCrary: @kelvin ramos No

TIBRAWLTAR: If you ever fix this I would love to know how. I am dealing with the same issue since the new OTA update came out. I believe it has something to do with the radio but I'm not sure.

Brandon McCrary: :( Sorry, If Verizon and HTC got there crap together we wouldn't have that problem

Brandon McCrary: Unfortunately no :( Nobody is releasing the new RUU. Guess devs just moved on and forgot about this phone

Brandon McCrary: @Promi I I would check but I don't have my computer with me

Sean Hagan: "Main version is older!" "Update fail!" My radio version is 1.09.01.0312 S-ON What do I need to do? I can't get my Inc2 to boot. It's bricked on the HTC white screen :(

CazmStudios: go to that link but take away beta

Brandon McCrary: @LexiZeGreat OTAs break root :p

Alex Zunigo: What do I have to

tyler225544: Oh and the rom download link is broken now.

Sjc1880: when i do the command, fastboot oem lock, it says: fastboot is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file... what ??? any ideas?

largomean47: ok thank you for your help :)

Brandon McCrary: @Johnathon Her You need the Android SDK

Hunter Belcher: Hey when my incredible 2 starts checking after its down i just takes me back to the hboot menu ??? what do i do

verdugo0077: hello. mi cell freeze in htc logo, i try the hard reset, but it freeze again after pressing the power button to sellect it. help!

Brandon McCrary: @LexiZeGreat Never stay on stock. At the very least flash a stock based ROM becauwe it removes the Verizon OTA

Zachary Londono: thanks man ill try that

slwzone: Please anyone have the link to pg32img.zip file??

Brad Jackson: Before I load the zip do I need to flash it on command prompt?

Zachary Londono: thanks anyway

Brad Jackson: opps no its not.... its under my fastboot folder, i forget what you type to get that

YourFuckingTroll: link broken :s please !!!

Brandon McCrary: @Paul Price Nope

mjwittr21: OMG!!! YOU rock dude, i used your tut to root then i bricked trying to flash CM7 using TWRP recovery. you saved my phone thank you soooo much man!!

Brandon McCrary: @LexiZeGreat Unlock your bootloader again. Flash the custom recovery and let me know when thats done so we can continue

Promi I: Oh wait, I found it, took me a while.

Brandon McCrary: If you already have the unlock token from HTC Dev then just flash it, of not go through the the whole process

Brandon McCrary: @largomean47 No problem. Description will be updated as soon as the new RUU is available :)

Promi I: Wait, how am I suppose to press the volume down and power button at the same time to get to that screen if my phone is bricked? It's not turning on at all

Brandon McCrary: @Promi I Mine don't say that, I'm honestly not sure
