Droid-Life is reporting that Verizon is going to start rolling out the official Froyo OTA update for the Droid Incredible from tomorrow itself. I will now recommend users to wait for the OTA instead of flashing the leaked Android 2.2 update about which we reported a few minutes ago. Verizon has updated the Droid Incredible support page with full information about the Froyo update as well.
The Froyo update for the Incredible brings with it incredible’ changes like 720p HD recording, 3G Mobile Hotspot, Flash Player 10.1 and a new boot screen. The Froyo update is also expected to improve the battery life of the device. This software update will also install Skype, VZ Navigator and My Verizon applications on your Incredible. The update will also enable the Wi-Fi n capability on the handset.
The folks over at Android Central have published the many screenshots and benchmarks of the Android 2.2 update running on the Droid Incredible. Here is the link to the full change-log of the Android 2.2 update from Verizon itself.
HTC are yet to announce the official release date of the Froyo rollout for the Droid Incredible. Earlier, rumors suggested that the Droid Incredible will get its Froyo love on August 18. However, that did not happen and Incredible owners are still waiting for HTC to announce the Froyo rollout date. Nevertheless, a full Froyo RUU has leaked on the Internet today.
Users who have rooted, as well as non-rooted phones can flash this firmware file. The Android 2.2 Update for the Droid Incredible will bring with it many new changes like 720p HD video recording, Flash Player 10.1, new Boot screen etcetera. Hopefully, Verizon will soon announce the official roll out date of the OTA Froyo update.
Here are the steps to flash this leaked Android 2.2 RUU file on your Droid Incredible.
Apparently, the news of the HTC Droid Incredible getting the Froyo update today was just a rumor. According to @VZWSupport, there is no information available on when the Droid Incredible will be getting the update.
Here is what @VZWSupport told about the Froyo update for the Droid Incredible :
We currently do not have information for the Incredible update at this time and is not being sent out today.
Now, this piece of news is going to break the hearts of a lot of Droid Incredible owners out there. Most of the other popular Android phones from HTC like the Desire, EVO 4G have already got their share of Froyo love.
I wonder why HTC is taking so much time to roll out the Froyo update for the Droid Incredible. Hopefully, the update will be rolled out by early-September to mid-September.
Many of the popular popular Android handsets like the HTC EVO 4G, HTC Desire, and the Motorola Droid received their Froyo update this month. Now, the HTC Droid Incredible is also set to join this list. Mashable reports that the Froyo update for the Droid Incredible is going to start rolling out on August 18.
According to Mashable, Verizon team members already have Froyo installed on their Droid Incredible(s). The Froyo update will be an OTA (Over-The-Air) one and will bring with it a major speed improvement, along with many new features like 720p HD recording, a new boot animation, mobile hotspot etc. However, if you can’t wait until that then users can flash the leaked Froyo ROM for the Droid Incredible. But this method is valid only for rooted Droid Incredible phone owners.
Remember the HTC Droid Incredible software update we had told you about? Well the update was pushed back by HTC so as to make a major change in it update the phone to Froyo. However, HTC has not mentioned when the Froyo update will be released to the general public. Nevertheless, an official Froyo ROM for the Droid Incredible has been leaked on the internet.
The update features the HTC’s proprietary Sense UI, 720p mobile recording and mobile hotspot, and all other features the previous OTA was expected to bring. The leaked Froyo ROM is up for download at Xda-developers forum, but users should keep in mind that updating to this ROM will fully wipe their handset. Users also need to update their phone’s radio baseband to try out the Froyo ROM, which requires root.
Sources indicate that the Droid Incredible will get the official Froyo update on August 6. It was earlier speculated that the Droid Incredible will be getting the Froyo update in early August. So there is quite a strong possibility of HTC releasing the Froyo update for the Incredible on 6th August.
It was just a couple of days ago, that HTC had released an Over-The-Air (OTA) software update for the HTC EVO 4G. Now, the company will soon be rolling out another firmware update for the HTC Droid Incredible. Droid-Life has got some leaked information about the upcoming firmware update with pictures and video from some credible source.
The firmware update will bring with it – 720p HD video recording to the Incredible. Along with HD video recording, the update will also bring 3G hotspot feature to the phone. Hopefully, the performance and the stability of the phone will also improve with this update. The bootup screen of the phone has also been changed to the “Droid” Red eye bootup.
Sadly, there is no specified timeframe when the firmware update will be available. Hopefully, the firmware update will hit the Incredible users sometime within a few weeks.
