S-OFF has been achieved on the VZ Droid Incredible 2 using the exploit from AlphaRevX.

Many thanks to IEF and the rest of the AlphaRev team who are working on bringing this to the masses.

AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC IN BETA FORM AT http://revolutionary.io/

STAY ON TOPIC OR POST ELSEWHERE

General Info:

Yes this will work on the .97 bootloader. It involves flashing a custom inc s bootloader, then running the exploit.

Yes this is the Verizon Droid Incredible 2. Note the Vivo_W in the header of the pic below.

No, you can't just flash the Inc S bootloader then use alpharevX.

No, you can't ask for ETA's. I'm not a member of Alpharev and will not ask for you!

No, this is not fake, take a look at the videos posted by Jcase further on in the thread.

Now we wait for a custom recovery? Preferably one in English.
Or is this it and we just need the guide/app?

Yes, that was in fact on hboot 0.97.

We just rewrote it to 1.09.1000 (our patched hboot for inc S).

That leaves one less hboot for us to maintain.

So when can we expect a custom recovery and some good ROMs (CyanogenMOD)? Is it possible to just flash ClockworkMOD?
