Download: New Android 2.2 DROID Incredible Build

Everything I’ve heard over the last few days suggests that Android 2.2 for the Droid Incredible is still going through a variety of tests and this latest build is evidence of just that.  While we still have no official release date, these builds are starting to become about as polished as you’ll find.

From what we can tell, there are no major differences between this build and the last one we had a week or so ago.  Well there is one thing we noticed immediately and that is the return of the old HTC IME keyboard.  As you may remember from our first impressions of Froyo with Sense, the keyboard hiding button had been removed and for whatever reason returned in this build.  Who knows?

*For rooted Droid Incredible users only.

Download:  signed_080110_225622.zip

Instructions…

1.  Download the zip file above to your SD card.
2.  Open ROM Manager and choose “Install ROM from SD card.”
3.  Choose the zip file you downloaded and check the box to create a backup.
4.  Skip the box to “wipe data and cache” as this build will wipe everything anyway.
5.  Allow your phone to reboot and work some magic.
6.  Should reboot with the new Sense Froyo love.  Enjoy!

As always, let us know of any issues should you run into some.  This is a great build for DI owners.

Flash is not included but can be downloaded here.  (alt link)

Cheers to our tipster for the leak and unrevoked for scrubbing this thing clean!

    The weather won't update every few hours anymore and I can't unlock the phone with the menu button anymore.

    I installed this and everything seems to work however the market will not load anything ever. It just says server problem retry or cancel. EVERY SINGLE TIME REGARDLESS OF CONNECTION

  • I installed this ROM and my GPS doesn't work now. Any one else have that problem? All gps's are checked in settings.

  • hysteria

    Ok just downloaded it and the gps is messed up, through default wallpaper, ringtones and notifications are gone and when commenting on websites the keyboard sometimes gets laggy. Otherwise very stable and very good

  • Jclemm

    having some serious trouble w/ my video camera working…it only runs for about 3-5 seconds. then it freezes and reboots…any idea's how to fix?

    • Johnny77

      You need to update your baseband before you install 2.2. I had this same problem and had to start over.

  • I root my phone and follow the step but I got the error!! could anyone help?
    there is a picture, check it out.

  • WhereIsTony

    anyone know a good place to get the incredible eye as live wallpaper the market versions are lacking,

  • NellyG

    Has anyone had issues with GPS on this drop? I can't get Google Maps to give me my proper location with this drop. Thanks.

    • NellyG

      Fixed it. I had to upgrade my radio to the 2.0 version. It was a tad painful. I had to unroot my phone, apply the new radio then root again.

  • Ari

    anyone figure out how to get the ringtones on after flashing this rom?

  • Bored_kid

    I am new at to rooting but i have hit a problem that i can not get past. I got my dic when it first came out and was quick to root it. I have since loaded skyrider 2.2 sense on to it and it runs great but i can't get my camcorder to work. It seems to me that it has something to do with the OTA update that i never got. Please help me in getting this thing working again i love phone!

    whenever i start the camcorder makes a loud high pitch sounds then freezes and shuts down the phone
    HELP!!

    • Jclemm

      im having the same problem…any ideas out there?

      • Johnny77

        You need to upgrade the baseband to 2.05 before upgrading to Froyo

  • Cappy699

    works well, but when you replay a video for a second it force closes and you close a play again. also many ring tones are missing. I do like the fact that it doesnt have all those usless app's like city id, vz navcigator ect on this version. all in all this one is better

  • Mischief316

    question: using unrevoked3 to root the incredible do i really need go through hboot process for windows?

    • kkj

      No, just install the stock ADB drivers and it usually works. If it doesn't, use their drivers.

  • Gurrick

    Is there any way a DI can get the same notification/status bar icons as a D1? I know its a pretty trivial thing but i really like the look of the D icons compared to these. Also (i'm not using this exact software but the 3.16 that i got from a youtube video link) the 720p video recording works for me, just used it about 2 seconds ago (also still have all the bloat-ware, wallpaper, ringtones, etc..). so if there are no real differences in the software then why use this one if its not 100% stable?

    • kkj

      You have to un-Sense, but most ROMs, including Jager and SkyFire Vanilla, are hybrid. Use CyanogenMod 6 and you'll get the stock stuff.

  • This ROM seems to be missing the default ringtones, notifications and HTC wallpapers. It also does not have the Verizon apps (VZW navigation, 3G Mobile Hotspot, Amazon MP3, etc) that were included with the first leaked ROM… I'm not certain whether those apps were “stock”, but the ringtones and wallpapers should at least be there.

    • V941726

      yes. tell me where to put this and i can explain this where everyone can see

    • V941726

      why would you want those apps? lol. in your list of backups, there will be green colored apps if you will. you have to make sure of your backup dates etc. but TB can restore your phone(wallpapers, ringtones, scenes, sms, call history, etc. whatever you want

      • I don't really care for those apps, just stating that they weren't included. I made a new full backup with TitaniumBackup just before installing this ROM, and even after doing a full restore of apps and system data (everything selected), the ringtones and wallpapers were not there. That shouldn't even be something that TB has to restore, as they're supposed to be included in the ROM, and I'm fairly certain TB doesn't even back those files up…

  • usnmustanger

    Aside from missing wallpapers, ringtones, etc., can anyone tell me how to restore my SMS/MMS messages from either my nandroid or titanium backups that I did just prior to installing this?
    TIA!

    • V941726

      yes. tell me where to put this and i can explain this where everyone can see

  • kosmoskid

    Both of these have broken my ability to use navigation. I don't use it that much, so it's not a big deal. I was just curious if anyone else has seen this issue.

    • V941726

      i think that might be cuz of the baseband update.

  • V941726

    if your missing ringtones etc., then redo it and watch what you restore in titanium backup. dont select all. deselect all, then only restore the missing apps. at the bottom of the list you will see htc stuff. dont restore those

    • usnmustanger

      Yeah, I did this, and I'm still missing wallpapers, ringtones, etc.

      • V941726

        i apologize. i said it backwards. i was in a hurry. select all, then uncheck the one that arent actual apps you installed

        • usnmustanger

          That's what I did, following instructions here: http://www.jonamerica.com/technology/howto-htc-
          Deselected anything that said htc or 2.1.
          I don't think this is the issue here. As Herohtar states above, I believe these items are missing from this ROM.

        • Even a full restore does not bring back the ringtones and wallpapers.

          • usnmustanger

            I can confirm that this has nothing to do with TB. Did another full wipe/restore, and checked for wallpapers and ringtones BEFORE restoring apps/data with TB, and guess what–they're not there. So clearly, it's an incomplete ROM, which I supposed is to be expected for a leaked pre-release. Not a biggie, since the official OTA is coming soon, and I'm sure some talented dev will fix it.

  • R00tedpawn

    noob question, do i have to upgrade my radio from 1.0 something to 2.0 something to do this update?

    • rebelz13

      Yes you need to upgrade it.

  • V941726

    where did the ringtones go? when i did this last week they were there.

  • V941726

    could it be the radio update causing trouble? as in not upgrading the radio/baseband

  • Walkingonwires

    thanks for a quick response!

  • Philq5786

    Video camera does work anymore. Makes beeping noises then reboots.

    • Philq5786

      doesnt

  • LTL

    I am currently running cm6 test 8 which is a froyo build.

    Everything for the most part is running smooth, good Quadrant scores, flash 10.1, camera works etc.

    Would like to try this out or possible skyraider 2.0 so I can uses the 720p video but I am scared because of the need for the radio update.

    2 things on that.

    1)If Verizon changes the radio in the official release then we are pretty much screwed from any future updates correct?
    2)I have found it really confusing to figure out how to update the radio. I know I am supposed to download the radio file zip and put it on the Root of my SD card. I assume I use astro or root explorer to accomplish this but not sure.

    Has anyone updated the radio?

  • nkyshooter

    My phone keeps rebooting whenever trying to record in 720p

    • NellyG

      I just recreated this. So you are not alone.

    • NellyG

      You need to update your radio. I fixed it yesterday by doing so. I recommend you visit xda-developers.com and its forums to see how this is fixed.

  • xmetl

    is it possible someone could port this to work on the motorola droid? that way we can have sense ui w/ froyo, that would the most amazing thing

  • JackalIB

    I liked having froyo on my DI, but I wasn't even getting a full day out of one charge. Went back to stock, battery can easily get through the day again on one charge. Anybody else have this problem? I want to try this new build, but not willing to reinstall apps and go through the unrooting process if battery life sucks again.

    • KGB

      went to Froyo on my DI as well, battery sux, Im lucky to make it half a day…. Feel ya.. I think I will go back to stock and wait for the real deal.

      • Gurrick

        I've had my DI rooted for a few days now, played with all the new features and even loaded Cyanogenmod 6 and my battery life doesn't seem to be draining at more than it used to. As an alternative you can even use hydra kernel to undervolt your phone when locked so it uses even less battery life (i don't know this from experience but i've read it from another DI user)

  • I'm going to hold off on this one right now… I've got my phone where I like it with the previous leak, everything works very well and I get a score of 1257 in quadrant.

    I really don't want the hassle of installing EVERYTHING all over again, it's a headache.

  • Walkingonwires

    So… I did this…and nothing. It was expected since I have no luck with anything. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

    • Walkingonwires

      When it goes into reboot…it starts to reboot correctly…then I get an orange “?”

      • Isaacjhorn

        I don't you you are reooted. If you were, it should go into the Clockwork Recovery automatically. If it doesn't, you can hold “vol up” and “power” together and it should take you to stock recovery; however i wouldn't try installing this ROM on an “un-rooted” phone…

  • Matt Jervis

    will this break root?

    • digitalicecream

      No, won't break root.

  • I don't know I just don't like it and I am running sapphire 0.7.0 I go into dmupdater and try what last night 5 times and it will not go into clockwork recovery mode or what ever it goes to do when you try and do it and my phone just stays on the Motorola sign I can not figure it out

    • digitalicecream

      Motorola sign? we're talking HTC Dinc here right?

  • digitalicecream

    Kellex, may be worth noting in the instructions that the new 2.x radio is a prerequisite.

  • usnmustanger

    Honest question–with the _Official_ OTA due to be out very soon, why are so many people bent on going through the hassle of wiping and re-setting up their phones to install these leaked ROMs? Just seems like more trouble than it's worth caused by a bit of impatience.
    Just wonderin', not trollin'.

    • digitalicecream

      Some sources say the new OTA will lockout the root-ability of the phone for some time, as all loopholes are closed in official OTA coming up.

    • Bigtex

      The official date for this phone isn't available yet. Personally I just like seeing the new revisions that are made. It takes me 10 minuets in the morning while I have my coffee and read my news before a days work. Also personally, Chrome to Phone is my favorite 2.2 feature. I don't know how I lived without it before! Heck I've loaded a zillion different mods on the G1 and even tonight was giving it Cyanogen6RC2. I suppose, why not?

  • Everything works great and idk if others were having this problem but the market on the last build wouldnt install apps until I hit cancel download and the hit install again and this build fixed it… one thing i noticed is there isn't an option for a Twitter account to sync with things like friendstream so I can only follow dlife via facebook…alwell thanx kellex

  • Bigtex

    Installed this sucker. Seems to run fine. On the previous version Quandrant gave me a 1222. Skyfire's rom a while ago as 1.7 gave me a 1420. Get a 1297 with this ROM.

    Quite the pain in the ass to re-install ALL of my freaking apps again, and re-do all of my setup. I'm hoping coming roms don't require this every time.

    • Bigtex

      Follow up on this one. HTC Wallpapers aren't working correctly. I can only see and choose the first one. The others are blank and if you try to select it say Storage Full.

      http://i.imgur.com/nuy2A.png – Shows my current storage values
      http://i.imgur.com/inWqq.png – Shows wallpaper malfunction

      • I've noticed missing HTC wallpapers, missing stock ringtones, and missing stock notifications so far. otherwise, its great

        • V941726

          ok. sorry. dont know which to answer. ok. im trying to answer this and maybe try to work with TB dev for future. for the moment, rerun the new froyo update. you will be starting over. you can even include TB in recovery. forget that if you didnt or dont know how. go through the motions and dont set up anything. if you dont want. go to market and reinstall TB . then restore all missing apps and data. select all apps BUT MAKE SURE YOU SCROLL THROUGH. when you get near the bottom, you will see non apps. i.e., peep, teeter, and stuff like that. uncheck those.
          wallpapers. htc desktop, sms, recent calls, etc,. is a different story. i can help through that too. just not with this one post

      • V941726

        i replied on this above. you have to uncheck about 10 things in your batch restore list. anything thats native to htc, uncheck it, then restore your apps only

        • usnmustanger

          I did this (unchecked all htc/2.1 stuff when doing a Titanium restore). Still missing everything Tim mentions below as well.

          • V941726

            there is a little more you should do if you want it back the way you left it

    • Get titanium back up its free but the donate version is well worth it it'll back up all it apps and auto reinstall on the new Rom even works with launchers and saves the layout if u use a non stock launcher

      • Bigtex

        Well hot dang. I'll give that a shot, appreciate the info Ray.

    • Catab917

      u should save the hole system as a image !!!!!!!!!!!

    • kkj

      SkyFire 2.x is a lot faster, I’ve gotten 1290s and 1300s with v2.2.

  • Chris Nimon

    Wife already made me make her a new keyboard. She had to have the “pretty blue one with the kids picture on it”.

  • hi yea i know this is not the spot for this but i used the “easy way” to root my D1 and i dont like it and i want to unroot but everyone that says they are here to help when someone has a problem dose not help at all it is kinda sucks so if someone could please just tell me how to go back to stock it would be great you can email it to me if you want at [email protected] or just reply to me on here… hope i can get the help i need this time..

    • Install ROM Manager==>Download ROM->Stock Images->Verizon Droid 2.0.1 Stock. Then from there you should be getting the OTA update notifications.

      Not sure why you “don't like it” tho. Just having root doesn't really do much in an of itself. It's what you can do while rooted that is great.

      If you used the DMUpdater app (which I have not), you should be running 2.1 as root. Unless you've installed a custom ROM? What ROM are you running? I would suggest getting ROM Manager then installing Bugless Beast V0.4. You'll end up with a recent 2.2 version of Android on your phone.

      • I don't know I just don't like it and I am running sapphire 0.7.0 I go into dmupdater and try what last night 5 times and it will not go into clockwork recovery mode or what ever it goes to do when you try and do it and my phone just stays on the Motorola sign I can not figure it out

        • The_Other_Ray

          in rom manager, try flashing an older recovery. I've been using 2.0.1.3 and no problems booting into recovery.

  • BigRed4X15

    would this rom work on the Sprint Hero?

    • digitalicecream

      no

  • What is the best way to backup all your data/apps?

    • usnmustanger

      Nandroid.

  • V941726

    also, what about the radio upgrade?

    • usnmustanger

      Yes, I'd really like an answer on this too. Not really planning on doing it, just curious, as I've been having radio problems lately.

      • digitalicecream

        install seperately

  • Catmandu

    Yet another off topic post. I'm a noob in every sense of the word when it comes to rooting. just rooted my DI and i was wondering if I could Still recieve OTA's. For instance, when official 2.2 comes out, do i have to unroot to get it?

    • tonytbone7883

      yes you have to unroot to get it.

      • catmandu

        Well, I used unrevoked to root my phone. Which involved me doing pretty much nothing at all to get root. Now I run into the problem of not knowing how to unroot. Do I just go into recovery and use the factory wipe/reset(or whatever it is) option? Is there a way to simply unroot as easily as it was to root, while still keeping my apps, contacts and what not?

  • V941726

    where did you get your kernel version? it looks like the original. mine says 2.6.29-cc1c2268 [email protected] #1. it was supposedly the original kernel.

  • YoungDroider

    I have to apologize because this is a little off topic as well but has anyone had any issues with location based apps using Pete's FRG01 froyo build? I just rooted my phone to for the first time and cannot get locations to work if i was using google maps or beautiful widgets for example.

    • i had that issue with a Sapphire build I used when first rooting my phone. When i switched to Bugless Beast v.0.4 i had no issues

      • YoungDroider

        thanks for the reply Deebo. i may do that at work. So if i switch over to Bugless Beast v.0.4 will the way i laid out my screens and folders stay intact?

    • tonytbone7883

      Did you “wipe data” before installation?

      • YoungDroider

        yes indeed. i just followed the instructions on droid-life.

  • Lmno4900

    Does this remove all of your apps. Does it Unroot your phone?

  • Rnmedic1839

    Problem with Camera and 720 makes aloud sqeeling noise and phone reboots itself

  • So close to official froyo…..yet so far…

  • no flash..hmmm, i hope the official release includes flash, otherwise it would be a big disappointment

  • hey is there a leak for full flash for the Droid 1 if so can i get a link or does the one above work for D1 too?

    • Timmah

      Here is Flash 10.1 Beta 3 for Android 2.2 Droid 1.
      http://www.droid-life.com/2010/06/17/download-f

      You MUST have the latest leaked version of Android 2.2 for D1. Hope I helped:)

      • thanks alot

        • Timmah

          No problem

      • The_Other_Ray

        it runs a bit choppy at 800mhz on lithiummod. Similar experience?

        • Timmah

          The system runs choppy or the flash applet runs choppy?

          • The_Other_Ray

            The flash. Videos are choppy but the sound works great.

          • Timmah

            That's normal. I guess I could leak the flash.apk that is in my phone which is the official one for Android 2.2 o.o

            But the one that the link has, is the latest. I mean, it's not a GREAT viewing pleasure, but I found if you are on Wifi, it's much better.

  • Mr. Joshua

    Slightly off topic, but did you guys know the lead character on “The Glades” uses a D1 and shows it off on the show several times?

    • kosmoskid

      Zach Galifianakis uses a D1 IRL. Also the G1 is prominently featured in the new Dinner for Schmucks movie. I guess Hollywood has a new favorite mobile OS. 🙂

  • Timmah

    That was fast. xD I'm sure telling my friend about this
    OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOGM. first. xD

    • planetes42

      what do you guys do, sit on Droid-Life and mash “refresh” all the time?

      (not that there's anything wrong with that)

      • kellex

        It is definitely encouraged. 😛

        • hahahha

          • bravoleader2

            I know I check it at least once every 2 minutes or so!

          • Timmah

            Same. Hahah

        • planetes42

          So Kellex, do you keep a stat of “average time from article post -> comment post”? I'd be interested to see what it is (and how it's declining as your site gains popularity)

          My RSS reader apparently just has way too much latency to ever be a first-er.

          • It's about 45-55 seconds from post to first comment 🙂

        • Although I am immediately updated of new posts via twitter, I still find myself refreshing the home page of droid-life. Bad habit?

      • That's what I get PAID to do at my job! 😛

        • Timmah

          I bearly do anything, so I think of it as getting paid to read a blog. xD

        • Tim can tell you I’m up to my a$$hole in alligators(cause I told him), and I still refresh every few minutes!

        • Tim can tell you I’m up to my a$$hole in alligators(cause I told him), and I still refresh every few minutes!

      • YEAH….SOO!?!? GOT A PROBLEM WITH IT!!! HUH…DO YA!!??!?? j/k i swear!!

        • Travneal

          I lost all stock ringtones with this. any idea?

      • Timmah

        I am at work everyday on the PC and the tab I keep open all the time is Droid Life and refreshing it every like 5 minutes. That is why I <3 this place. xD
