Default [Q] Help with unlocking bootloader? HTC Incredible 4g LTE

I recently bought a Verizon/HTC Incredible 4g LTE and I was wanting to install cyanogenmod. I was able to find many tutorials to unlock the bootloader, but none of them have been successful.
I keep getting linked to this post:
Code:
Select Code
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1986346&
It works until I get to "adb restore fakebackup.ab" where my phone goes to "Full Restore" but asks for device encryption password, and restore my data is greyed out.

I continued to the next step anyways to get the error: "link failed No such file or directory" endlessly

Since it said there would be errors i continued anyways and had a $ at the end instead of #

Please help!!

Have you tried the automatic method on the same link you just mentioned? That's the way I did it. I had a few snags myself but they all disappeared when I tried it on a different computer. I also read several places to try a new USB. You could also try this all-in-one tool kit http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1758682 I've used it for a couple of different thins and it has been very usefull. You can use it to unlock your bootloader.

I'm not sure about your specific problem but I hope this is helpful.

1. Make sure you are on the latest software: 2.17.605.2
2. Factory reset your phone
3. Slowly go through the manual instructions here: [Script] Automated Unlock/SuperCID/Temp-Root scripts for Windows and Linux
My Devices:
HTC Incredible 4G LTE (fireball) - CyanogenMod 10.2
Verizon HTC One (m7vzw) - CyanogenMod 10.2
ASUS Nexus 7 FHD (flo) - CyanogenMod 10.2

Worthwhile reads:
XDA Devs vs. NooBs | logcat or GTFO
So you want to root and mod your phone
My Projects:
HTC Incredible 4G LTE
CyanogenMod 10.1 | CyanogenMod 10.2 | TWRP Recovery
CWM(R-Touch) Recovery | Automated Unlock/SuperCID/Temp-Root scripts

HTC One Verizon
CyanogenMod 10.2

I was having difficulty with the SuperCID hack, and it appears that it was due to an OTA update. I was able to following the directions prescribed here, but I had HBOOT 1.15 and not 1.16. The basic idea is to

1. Gain "temp-root" access using the loop-restore trick together with the fake_backup.ab file.

The next steps were failing for me. I was able to verify that mmcblk0p4 had been copied over correctly, with the "modded" version, but each time the boot loader was rebooted, it would be replaced with the original version containing VZW__001, and not 11111111. However apparently all that needed to be done to reach S-OFF status was:

2. Run Rumrunner after obtaining temp-root status. The Rumrunner binary unlocks the phone and places it in S-OFF status.
