UPDATE, you will have market issues, some apps will not show up. For a fix see this post:

READ FIRST
DO NOT APPLY THE UPDATE.ZIP TWICE or YOU MAY BRICK YOUR PHONE!

Everyone should know that if you apply this update and VZW changes the radio in the official then you probably won't be able to upgrade your radio to it.

Also if you do this you will not be able to revert back to stock until a new RUU is released, and the problem with a new RUU is that they may close all known root methods. If you try with any current RUU's you will get a "Main version is older" error.

The radio is very good and 720p will work but everyone should know this might prevent future radio updates.

READ SECOND:
In case the OTA comes out and there is something truly different, you can follow this procedure to downgrade hboot and install an older RUU:
http://androidforums.com/all-things-...ion-hboot.html

dinc_ota.zip


Put the file from mediafire.com on your SDCARD as update.zip

If rooted, you have to RUU your phone back to stock. Download the image from the link below, put on root of SDCARD and then boot into bootloader(powerdown, hold power and optical button in) then go to bootloader, then it should load the img and then apply it.
http://www.mediafire.com/?yum40znzwmmmtyl

Boot back to your phone and apply the first OTA update we got. If you dont do this, you might get errors trying to install the new update.

Then go to STOCK recovery.
Apply update.zip
Reboot, then activate.
Then follow this:
(Mine got stuck on rebooting phone, I just unplugged my phone and then plugged it back in again really fast again, it seemed to work like normal just starting the UnrEVOked 3.0 with phone hooked up)
UnrEVOked v3.0 Is Out - ROOT NO LONGER REQUIRED + NEW CLOCKWORK 2.5!!! - xda-developers

Then one final step for now to install root again really easy.
Download this
http://www.unrevoked.com/incredible/payload-update.zip

Put it on your SD card, then reboot into clockwork recovery
Go to install zip from SD-Card
Choose the payload-update.zip
You have root again and busybox is installed.
Some reason UnrEVOked 3.0 didnt reroot my phone but doing the steps above will have you with the latest update and 2.0 radio with 100% working root and working 720p video.

Picture proof it works, drocapped the pic, so you know root is all good.

Cool
This sounds really dangerous to me and while I appreciate the warnings, those warnings show pretty bad consequences. I think I will wait until unrEVOked simply provides a root-safe version of the OTA.

Yea someone posted the leak file here, I thought I messed up at first because root wasn't on my phone! Then I figured it out so I figured I would post how to easily get root back on.

Might hurt you in the end
If the official radio version ends up being like 1.7 or 1.9 everyone who did this will be screwed correct? There is no way to reverse this once you have flashed the leaked radio.


EDIT: Haha ^^^^^^ you beat me to it by 2 minutes

Its not even just that. The update was a radio.diff file not a radio.img. I'm not 100% sure but I'm guessing that it just makes modifications to your radio, and not replace it.

If they make changes to the radio.diff it may not be able to make the proper changes to our radio because we are running a leaked version that already has changes in it.

Wonder if the update can be dismantled and only have the 720p added to the phones?

People should be able to get the stock recovery .zip, out of sone of these stock ruus so that wiping its not necessary... Redoing your entire phone is a pita... Much easier if someone can isolate the stock recovery file without messing with the data partition

A few have tried (including myself) and 720P doesn't work without the radio. It will show in the camcorder and you can select it, but if you try and record it will reboot on you.

I'll keep trying but it seems impossible to have 720P recording without the radio.
