Hey guys....
So my Droid Inc got bricked. A evil brick though. Funny thing is it got bricked before i ever rooted or messed with it in anyway. It just bootloops forever. Ive tried
1. RUU
2. PB...IMG....Many of them
They flash successfully, but same bootloop.

So i took it a step further
1. HTC Dev Unlocked (idk if their unlocking can be considered as legit, but anyway...) from fastboot (only way to unlock bootloader from fastboot i guess, or else i would of tried unrevoked...)
2. Then flashed clockwork from fastboot.
3. Wiped absolutely everything multiple times from recovery
4. Flashed CM7 in recovery....same bootloop

another step further
1. Put recovery.img in adb folder and and tried to "fastboot boot recovery.img" and flash CM7 like that (because If im not wrong htc dev unlock restricts kernel flashing but this circumvents it, or does it...)
2. After yet another bootloop, tried fixing permissions, reflashing CM7 again, then fixing permissions again

Nothing . Sometimes ittl bootloop the CM7 boot animation, sometimes ittl get stuck at HTC Incredible screen forever. Tried another stock rom also...

Any ideas lolll?

Ruu
Fastboot flash recovery
Flash su binary thru recovery
See if you can boot.
If you can boot download and install busybox
Wipe and flash a rom

I think the issue may be your not installing su before flashing a rom, or will it not boot on stock either? Idk just throwin stuff out there. Sounds like you have done everything right so far

Is there an SD card in the phone? You know, in case you were just storing everything on the internal storage. :P
Anyway, I think some ROMs interact with the SD card on bootup, and that can cause some issues. Try reformatting the card and see if it makes a difference.

Just a shot in the dark here but its a distinct possibility you're not bricked at all but you have a hardware failure.I had this same issue on not one but two separate Incredibles and come to find out it was simple hardware failure.I went so crazy trying to figure it out after I thought I had bricked the second one that I paid a family friend who is actually an engineer for htc to look at them.I shipped them to him and after a few days the answer came through.Hardware failure.I thought one maybe but two hardware failures?And it was.Processor failed on both of em.
