The recovery screen is there to bring your phone back from the dead in the unlikely event the phone doesn't boot properly, to fix this there are options in this menu
try holding down power/vol - to bring up the list of options, choose reboot to see if it will boot into the phone
and as for the root method, try this one (after you get the phone to boot hopefully)
Here's what i did (also puting the phone in airplane mode does help)
1. Hold down the power/ - Volume buttons until the Hboot screen appears (make sure the SD card is ejected)
2. Use the volume - key to select recovery, then hit power to select it
3. When you see the white screen that says "HTC Incredible" wait until you hear the disconnect sound on the PC and right after insert the SD card, be sure to insert it right before the black screen or this won't work.
**If you didn't get in, take out the battery, and start over at step 1**
also note that sometimes for whatever reason, the phone will still stay on even with the battery removed, to fix that, just disconnect the USB and plug it back in before turning it back on.
4. Loop should bring up that oh so tempting mistress that is, the error everyone likes seeing on there command prompt.
Note: Once you do get all this done, be sure to use unrEVOked2 to flash your recovery, once that is all done, it'll be easy as pie to upload new goodies in recovery :P
