It has been quite some time since we last brought you a downgrade-in-order-to-root guide. As many devices aren’t always easily unlocked after an update, this being especially true for HTC phones obtaining S-Off, reverting to an older firmware version is sometimes the only way users will ever get their phones unlocked again. This is the case for the Droid Incredible 2 and S-Off.
The downgrade tutorial was written by XDA Senior Member dets34, and it is a long one. First, users verify that they have all the correct software. Then, users run through the tutorial itself, detailing how to safely downgrading the firmware. Lastly, the classic S-Off tool Revolutionary makes an appearance, and it is used to obtain S-Off.
