Verizon Droid Incredible owners rejoice! After a lot of confusion, Verizon and HTC have finally decided to give some Gingerbread love to Incredible owners. Earlier, a leaked Gingerbread RUU somewhat confirmed that the Incredible will get its Gingerbread update.
However, soon after HTC reps started telling Incredible users that HTC has no plans of bringing Gingerbread update to the Incredible. Thankfully, a few days ago some leaked documents from Verizon suggested that the Droid Incredible Gingerbread update is just around the corner.
The Gingerbread update brings with it a new download manager, improved performance, enhanced battery life, new kernel and improved copy and paste functionality. Along with the above said enhancements, the update also squashes some bugs and updates some all of the pre-loaded Verizon bloatware to the latest version. Incredible owners who have already installed the OTA update on their phone, are reporting ridiculously fastboot times.
Incredible owners can wait for the OTA update to hit their phones, or alternatively, they can download the OTA update from here and install it manually. However, Incredible owners should keep in mind that after installing the update, they would loose the ability to root their handset. Also, users who have already rooted their Incredible handset should stay away from the OTA update.
