Remember the HTC Droid Incredible upcoming software update we had told you about a couple of weeks ago? Well a few handful of Droid Incredible owners are reporting that they have got the software update notification on their phone. The new OTA software updated is expected to bring 720p HD video recording, and a new boot up animation to the Incredible.
3G hotspot functionality will also be added to the Droid Incredible with this update. It is not yet confirmed whether this OTA software update has been officially released or not. As for now, users should take this news with a pinch of salt. It is also not yet confirmed whether the new software update fixes the security loop-hole via which the Droid Incredible was rooted.
Recently, unrevoked’ released an updated version of their application which allows users to root their Incredible in just a single click. If you are a Droid Incredible owner, and have already got the latest OTA software update on your phone, do drop in a comment.
The HTC Droid Incredible is one of the most popular Android phones in the U.S. The phone is available exclusively on the Verizon network and features an 8MP camera at its back. The Droid Incredible was one of the few Android phones which was still un-rooted, until last month. The problem with the rooting process was that it was pretty complicated and so many people preferred not to try it.
Now the folks behind unrevokedhave released an updated version of their application. The latest version allows users to root the Droid Incredible in just a single click. Keep in mind that there is no confirmation whether this rooting method is still compatible with the Droid Incredible OTA software update which is being rolled out to various users.
Users who have already rooted their handset using unrevoked are advised not to download the software update for now.
It was just a few days ago that HTC had released an Over-The-Air (OTA) update for the EVO 4G. The OTA software update enabled the Wi-Fi n feature on the device, and improved the performance of the device. Along with this, the update also fixed the vulnerability via which the EVO 4G was hacked.
Soon after this update was released, the modders over at XDA forums got back to work and started finding ways to root the EVO 4G. Thankfully, an anonymous modder has been able to find a hack to root the EVO 4G again. This new rooting method uses vulnerability present in Adobe’s Flash Lite Config to do its job.
The method is a bit complex, so only experienced users should try this. Here is the link to the thread with full instructions.
