Really hoping I can revive this incredible.

Got the phone in attempt to fix it, it's in a constant state of 'boot-loop syndrome'..
Can't go into recovery.. can't factory data reset.. all I get is the
....*vibrate*, white HTC incredible screen....*vibrate off*, etc. etc. etc.

The only thing that is working is hboot (as well as hboot usb when plugged into a pc).
But that's as far as I can get.. anything else I attempt to load from the hboot/bootloader it goes into a constant boot loop spasm.

The incredible is currently S-ON
Hboot- 0.92.0000
Radio-2.15.10.07.07

I've tried numerous PB31IMG stock files in attempt to recover the system.
The system/sd card detect the files just fine and attempt to load them.

The PB31IMG at pvillcomp ( http://pvillecomp.com/?page_id=22 ) didn't work, too old

This one, however, does work (only one so far I've found that does)
http://dinc.does-it.net/Stock_Images....2/PB31IMG.zip

But while going through the installation process it fails at Radio_**
all other variables within the file (bootloader, system, recovery, etc) complete successfully.
Once all the components of the zip file are installed, it gives the message

partition update fail!
Update fail!

Am stuck at this point, hoping for assistance.. if anyone knows any possible solutions or what the issue could be, please help!

Thank you.

That sounds scary. I've heard that a failed radio flash is the only way to permenantly brick one of these phones.

Here's what I would try:
1. Update HBOOT to the latest, from here:
http://dinc.does-it.net/Hboots/Hboot_1.07/
2. Unlock the bootloader using htcdev (see cmlusco's or scotty's guides)
3. Flash a custom recovery using fastboot (I've used CWM and TWRP)

IF you can get all that to complete successfully, and can boot into recovery, you should then be able to get root adb access to the system. This will give you some more options, such as flashing an older RUU (again, see cmlusco's and scotty's guides for downgrading), and just maybe you'll be able to find something that works.

Thanks for the website, was looking for something like that
Anywho, tried to flash it in the bootloader, it seems to find it a file for which is proper but does not give me any option to update it.
It just says "looking for PB31IMG... then finds it, says checking PB31IMG...", then the prompt goes away.

I'm quite limited when it comes to knowledge on this stuff, but anyone think if I decompile the stock ruu (~180mb) PB31IMG.zip, and flashboot each part of the update separately it may work?
