Or just make a nand backup? What is the point of releasing or using this recovery at this point if we don't have s-off? I think that is a point of confusion and as a result questions on unlocking the bootloader are surfacing on this thread. Could you please advise or clarify for a dumba$$ such as myself on what this awesome recovery could be used for on the device considering that it is s-off and only has temporary root at this point? I have read the original post several times and I am still a little confused on this. If the original post has somehow flew over my head please feel free to flame away at me. I am not thinned skinned and do not have to rebuke or retort any harsh responses. Maybe your response could help clear the air and eliminate any further unlocking questions. Thank you in advance for any help or clarification you can provide.
I'm not gonna flame, as I had the same questions back when o first got the Incredible. He put it out here just so that when we do get S-off, we can have it. Just like the roms. We can flash these from recovery. A recovery can be used to flash roms, kernels, make nandroids, wipe data, and mount storage. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask. Most of us here at XDA will not flame you, as we had the same questions not so long ago.
