Flashing a radio

The Incredible 2 needs to be S-OFF. Updating the radio is usually not required unless it is explicitly stated that a newer/different radio is required.
Flashing the radio with a corrupt file or interrupting the flash, can brick the device, please proceed with caution.

  1. This applies to all radios listed above.
  2. Make sure the filename is exactly or it will not work.
  3. Connect the Incredible 2 to the computer via USB.
  4. On the computer, open terminal and run the following commands:
    adb push /sdcard/
    adb shell md5sum /sdcard/
    NOTE: The md5 should match up the provide the original download location. If not, redownload & try again.
    adb reboot bootloader
  5. The Incredible 2 will reboot & usually boot into fastboot. Pressing the Power button will put the device into the bootloader.
  6. The bootloader will scan for the radio update. Once it finds the update, select Yes.
  7. Allow the bootloader to finish flashing the updated radio, and reboot the Incredible 2 normally.
