Should I still wipe battery stats if I don't do it on a full battery?
Also, I didn't format anything in Mounts and Storage when I flashed your ROM of the previous OTA, is there a reason why I should this time?
I mean honestly you can do what you want, I just did the installation instructions because that is what works for me. If your install fails and you come back and ask why, you'll already know what I'm gonna say next. Everyone who has failed in the past installing my roms have always came back and said they fixed it by going back and doing it again following the instructions.

It's up to you though

Okay. I'm still having problems. I triple checked everything and steps and I'm sure I'm doing them right. It boots to the first screen then reboots to recovery. I shall attempt tomorrow.

I'm sorry your having issues. What recovery are you using? I use CWM5.0.2.0.

I had the same issue. Coming from stock+. Get splash screen then black and reboot direct into recovery 5x. I got it to load when I wiped mounts first then data/factory reset then Rom.

Thanks for this post. (I attempted to PM you on XDA's site, but I don't see a sent message so I don't know if it went through) I'm new to using ROMs, etc and I want to upgrade from my rooted 2.2 to 2.3.4. I've read the posts on the XDA site and am about 80% comfortable with going through with this upgrade. However, I did not find a post with someone in the same situation as mine, so I have a few questions. I rooted my DINC in September 2010 using unrevoked. In November 2010 when the new OTA came out, I avoided it by modifying the "" number in the build.prop using Root Explorer. I have booted into hboot and it shows "INCREDIBLE XC SHIP S-OFF, HBOOT-0.92.0000." I go into recovery and it shows "ClockworkMod Recovery v2.5.0.5." Can you please verify that these are the steps I should take:

1. Update ClockworkMod Recovery through "ROM Manager" (Is this the right way to update it to 5.X.X.X?)
2. Backup everything through ClockworkMod Recovery (Would you recommend Titanium Backup or is CWM's recovery good enough?)
3. Undo my November 2010 build.prop fingerprint number modification. (Is this necessary?)
4. http:// forum.xda-de...&pos tcount=222 <-- Follow steps 4 and 5 from that post
5. Re-download all my apps and contacts, etc (Would ClockworkMod Recovery be able to re-install all my apps, etc or do I need something else for that?)

Is there anything else I should look for before attempting the update such as USB debugging, etc? Thanks a lot. I appreciate your help.

Edit: Got your reply on XDA. Thanks.

Ha, I seen your PM on XDA and did reply. One thing you may get by reading my PM is, you might want to back up your apps with titanium back up and then do the nandroid back up in clockwork recovery. Titanium back up allows you to restore your apps after you have your new rom and the nandroid backup allows you to restore your current rom just like it is right now just in case something goes wrong.
