HTC Droid Incredible 2 Android 2.3 Gingerbread Update Leaks

The HTC Droid Incredible 2 is the successor to the highly popular Droid Incredible from Verizon and HTC. The phone was released exactly a month ago under Verizon’s network.

Sadly, the phone shipped with Android 2.2 (FroYo) on-board. At the time of its launch, HTC and Verizon did not mention anything about the Gingerbread update, for the handset.

Now, a member of MobileUnderground has managed to get his hands on a leaked Android 2.3 Gingerbread RUU for the Droid Incredible 2. I will not suggest any Droid Incredible 2 owner to flash this leaked RUU, as no known rooting and unlock method works on the firmware.

However, the folks over at Android Police have released a rooted version of the RUU. The re-packed RUU can be downloaded from here.

Below is a video of the Droid Incredible 2 running Android 2.3 Gingerbread :

The Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Incredible 2 brings some much needed bug fixes, apart from the bump in the Android version. The Smart Dialer and Notification LED settings work properly on this RUU, and so does the Sense Calendar widget.

The RUU also comes with a new radio, which should hopefully improve the network reception and data transfer speeds.
