Video: Full Flash 10.1 on the DROID Incredible

During yesterday’s writeup of our first impressions of Android 2.2 for the Droid Incredible, we completely forgot to cover Flash 10.1.  Silly right?  After we realized this mistake, we went digging to see what we could find and were surprised to see an official Flash 10.1 build pre-installed and ready for action.

The quality of this build (v.10.1.72.7) is pretty amazing on the DI.  Check it…

With news of the EVO 4G possibly seeing this same update as early as tomorrow, should we expect it on the Incredible then as well?  And who can’t wait to see full Flash in action on the DX’s screen?  Yay!

    The the DROID Incredible-enabled Android phone, which is Video on Full Flash 10.1 Feature wise, it's pretty much identical to the HD2..thanks

  • mike dobak

    well the hotspot on both leaked roms are messed up same with the 720p recording. those are the main reasons i rooted….

  • Damien

    I got my HTC Incredible in the beginning of June, does this mean that my phone will automatically update or do I have to do something and update it myself??

    Please, can someone explain this to me.

    • Sumsupre

      There will be a notification on your phone that will lead to the OTA update…

  • simon

    So what's the version number on this Flash build? Doesn't look any smoother than 10.1 Beta 3 (from the Market), tbh, which also shows up as “Adobe Flash Player 10.1″ (without BETA) in Manage Applications.

  • Chris Nimon

    Unrooted, installed OTA, rerooted. Now how do I install the 20100727_stock_froyo_signed.zip? Do i rename update, put on sd, reboot into recovery, then install update?

    • Chris Nimon

      Nevermind, put on my jockstrap and big boy pants and installed from sd thru rom manager.

    @Kellex

    I remember you said in an earlier article called “Finally, The Droid Life Incredible Has Been Rooted” that Droid Life was working on a video showing how to root the Incredible. Could you give us any insight into how that video is coming out?

  • The_Other_Ray

    flash on my rooted droid runs so slow that it's not even worth having it. Will the official version run faster or is it just the limitation of my D1? I'm running cyanogenmod 6 rc2 at 800mhz. Even when I oc'ed to 1ghz, it still ran slow.

  • ^.~

    the ridiculously hot manager at the Cupertino Verizon store told me Froyo will be available tomorrow for DX, D1 and incredible. She said the Motorola Rep rep told her directly. she got glares from other employees when she told me… but what can I say… I'm charming ^.~

    • Evermour

      We'll see.

    • Sumsupre

      Unlikely, as the “Motorola Rep” would not give such a statement concerning the Droid Incredible- Motorola would only announce that concerning the D1 & the DX.

  • http://twitter.com/jbernard703 Jeffrey Bernard

    Best Android phone available….still. There isn't a phone available on the market that I would trade my Incredible for.

    • Evermour

      I would…

  • CP

    @ Kellex: you should do a poll to see which phone people want more: the incredible or the X.

    • Evermour

      Thats easy. The x.

      • kkj

        Nope. Inc. Root, ROM, FroYo early, Gingerbread early, etc.

      • Sumsupre

        Nope, the inc

  • Guest

    Phone also rotate the other direction rather than one direction. Thank you froyo

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_Z54VGB6WBQGXMGZZ73SD567DDM mark mata

    I've given up with the whole froyo count down for my loving Droid. Root time!! ( with my luck the ota will come next week)

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4MX4UTDUZVT2FNVHVJ2HE7PY5M Andrew

      You wont regret it! Just do it, then enjoy clock speeds of 1.2ghz, custom roms, and wifi hotspot. You wont go back or even care about ota froyo.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_Z54VGB6WBQGXMGZZ73SD567DDM mark mata

        Oh man! I just finished rooting this loving machine and its like I got a new phone. I was getting frustrated with how slow its been, its fast now. I don't see myself putting it down anytime soon.

      • mike dobak

        well the hotspot on both leaked roms are messed up same with the 720p recording. those are the main reasons i rooted….

  • tonytbone7883

    Do you have to have the market hack to get full version of flash 10.1? can a down load link be put up please?

  • Michael_NM

    fapple CSR: Thank you for calling fapple, may I help you?

    i*hon't User: Yes, my friend has a Droid Incredible, and he's got flash on it, when will I be able to use that on my phone?

    fapple CSR: Thank you for your question, please note that your phone came with an LED flash installed.

    i*hon't User: But I mean Adobe Flash 10.1.

    fapple CSR: I'm sorry but it sounds like you've put your phone in your left hand, I can't hear you. We'll ship a bumper to you in 4-6 weeks, please call back after that. In the meantime enjoy your flash. Thank you, goodbye.

      Classic :-P

      Ha Ha +1

  • El El Kool J

    yah i installed flash 10.1 last night on my girls Dinc.. it runs way smoother on her phone than on my D1.. I was like whoa.. :P

  • Orangearrrows

    This is so AWESOME

  • NorCalGuy

    I am sure someone has pointed this out, but everyone with the froyo build and the market hack can download this same flash build directly from the android market, no more ported versions!!

  • Thomasapc

    This is awesome and I cannot wait. The one thing I don't think you have mentioned is if the battery charging issues have been resolved… Does it still charge a lot more if you power off even after it was allegedly “100%”, I would love if the phone charges the battery correctly now while powered on.

  • kulz

    *sniff sniff* do i smell some froyo in the near future? ;D

    • kkj

      No, the recent past :D. CM6 or SkyRaider 2.0.1.

  • kosmoskid

    Flash is beautiful on the Incredible. It loads like a dream. I still can't get Hulu to work, but I can watch a futurama stream on Justin.tv which is fine for me.

    • Tyler

      that's because hulu bowed down to the industry and blocked us. I'm not going to point any fingers, but if it was the company whose name rhymes with “Crapple” that supported flash, I guarantee everyone would be able to watch all the hulu they wanted to on their mobile devices without anyone demanding hulu block it.

    • GNO

      Futurama?? Ouch….-1

      j/k :-)

  • Droid111

    engadget says that the evo will get froyo tomorrow, how about us who are using stock shouldn't we get it first?

    • Tyler

      hey, Kellex already showed us how to get it first (as in, two months ago), complain to Motorola not him

    • andrew401

      no you won't get it first considering i have had froyo for a while now (real froyo). just root and get it over with so you can actually USE your phone. unrevoked has made it completely painless and you can always go back to stock if needed. so what do you have to loose here?

      • Tyler

        Why in the world would you want the OTA? so you ca run your phone at 550 MHz vice 1200?

  • Tyler

    And did anyone else watch this embedded on their droid 1 with the leaked flash? Watching a video of a phone playing flash player on a phone with flash player, oh the irony :-)

    • http://twitter.com/marcodecca marco decca

      What if, and I'm just thinking out loud here, you where to use the flash player on your phone to play a flash video of a phone playing a flash video of a phone playing a flash video of a phone playing a flash video of a phone playing a flash video of a phone playing a flash video of dramatic chipmunk?

      Black hole? I think so…

      • Tyler

        someone make a video of watching this video on their rooted phone so we can get project black hole started

        • http://twitter.com/marcodecca marco decca

          Someone would need to make a video of their phone watching dramatic chipmunk first…

      • 1bad69z28

        Someone has way too much time on their hands LOL :P

      • RIKSTER

        IT WILL LOOK IN 5 MIN INTO THE FUTURE…JUST LIKE THE SCENE IN SPACEBALLS….

    • PoorLittleBird

      Flash video, even via WiFi, is so choppy on my D1 that it would be hard to tell what's going on.

    • kkj

      I watched the video on my Droid Incredible on CyanogenMod 6 with Flash.

  • http://allaboutdroid.wordpress.com sremex

    Holly bergebers that looked mighty fine.

  • Tyler

    Well I mean, built in. I have no idea if the version I'm running is supposed to be official or just some leaked/stolen from the Nexus 1/hacked together version. Who cares it works!

  • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

    Sweet sauce!

  • Tyler

    does this mean there will be an official flash for us rooted moto droid users soon?

    • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

      There already is an official flash buddy :-)

      • Tyler

        Well I mean, built in. I have no idea if the version I'm running is supposed to be official or just some leaked/stolen from the Nexus 1/hacked together version. Who cares it works!

        • kellex

          Yes, once the Droid gets Froyo it will get full Flash.

          • http://www.myspace.com/abrielband Tim-o-tato

            Oh thats funny. I thought that was addressed to me :-P
            You do know I'm hella bored here at work right? lol
            J/K
            Thanks for beating me to it :-) You rock!

        • Tyler

          For clarification, the Beta 3. I guess I was asking if there will be a non-beta version, or if it even makes a difference.

    • Tyler

      Ha! The first “first” post in Droid-Life history that doesn't mention the word first! I've been after this for the last three weeks or so! (I know I know, defeats the purpose of being against the “first” comments)
