Hey guys, I have an HTC Incredible 2 still on Froyo (2.2.1). Is there still a root method that works for this. The phone has a bad ESN, so upgrading isn't an option. Thanks in advance!

Did you install the correct drivers?
Yeah, everything went perfect, until the S-OFF portion. It goes through the process of zerging root, reboots into H-BOOT, the second boot into H-BOOT it doesn't S-OFF, so it says it failed.

can you not connect on wifi and get the update?
Haven't tried this, i'll do that when I get home and post results.
Edit: No Dice, connected to Wi-Fi and I obviously get a data connection. However the option for checking updates is greyed out and it isn't updating. I assume it needs an active connection to Verizon to update.
Edit2: Found the official US release of 2.3.3, flashed via H-BOOT then was able to root via revolutionary tool. Thanks for the replies and help.
