I'm ready to try a ROM, before the OTA finds it's way on my phone. I'm looking for the best way to unlock this device. I thought I'd give this new tool a try, however, it doesn't appear to work on the HTC Incredible 4G LTE (fireball). The temp-root method seems to work, but not the S-OFF.
Using Windows 7 Enterprise SP1 x64. HTC Driver 4.10.0.0001 and Android SDK 1.16
Current software: 2.17.605.2 701RD
Here were my results:
