The delayed release of the Droid Incredible 4G LTE caused a notable slowdown in development for the successor to the venerable Droid Incredible. No worries though, as it now has a toolkit with everything you will need to get started tinkering. Toolkits are often extremely useful to new Android users, as they can perform a variety of actions including acquiring root access, installing a custom recovery, and even unlocking the bootloader.
The toolkit for the Incredible 4G comes from XDA Recognized Developer hasoon2000, a developer well known for his previous toolkit efforts such as his toolkit for One X, One S, myTouch 4G Slide, Amaze 4G, Rezound, and Vivid. His new toolkit is no different, and includes a variety of tools for your device. Current features include:
- Install HTC Drivers
- Unlock Bootloader
- Relock Bootloader
- Install Recovery
- Install Kernel
- APK Batch Installer
For those wondering, the included recovery is the much lauded TWRP 2.1. However, it also includes the option to provide your own. Kernels are entirely user-provided. The toolkit also allows users to boot into recovery or bootloader with the push of a button.
