Hi

I need a little information. I have been looking on the site but cant seem to figure what i need.

I would like to get CM11 or Avatar 5.0.6 on my incredible 4g but it keeps failing.

I have a unlocked bootloader S-Off and TWRP for my recovery. I guess my question is, how can i get this to load.

The directions stated to install the latest OTA but that will lock my phone back up. The directions also stated they were installing it with CWM.

So my question is do I need to change from TWRP to CWM to get the install to work and do I really need to update my phone and lose my unlocked phone?

OR is there a way to update the phone without re locking it?

Thanks

to update the firmware look at this post
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2626511
this i wll give you the new radio and power management and secute bootloader.
but it won't affect s-off or the boot image or the recovery.
you will need cwm for cm11 but i think you can switch back after the install
I didn't

If you have the latest TWRP 2.6.3.0h it works with CM11 and is supposed to have better support for SELinux.

There is a tread on the firmware. If your phone is already s-off, the firmware won't undo it. CM11 is using the radio libraries that go with the new radio firmware.
