DROID Incredible Update Rolling through 9/3, DROID X in “Testing”

Forget what the rumors said over the weekend, the Droid Incredible Froyo update has not been put on hold and is still rolling out to devices right now.  The proof would be the dozens of emails we’ve received this morning from people who received notification to update or found the update.zip which allows for immediate 2.2 awesomeness.

Verizon is currently planning on having it on all DI’s by 9/3 (Friday) which seems a little ambitious, so don’t hold your breath on that date.  I wouldn’t be surprised if they have to extend that out just a little and rightfully so.  Anything to avoid a Droid 2.1 fiasco, right?

As for the Droid X, the “official” 2.2 update is still going through last minute tests and does not have a specific date for launch.  The Motorola forums mentioned “early September” just yesterday, so we can only hope that means within the next 2 weeks.

Test that baby already!  We need some official Froyo-ness!

    Froyo sucks ass it wont let you kill your apps with task killer so I got a task manager which is suppose to automatically kill apps with the new update. Well it does not kill them all and drains my battery on my DI quick. Even my buddies with a Droid their battery life is lower with the new app. So, this update is not work it.

    what is the MR2 update about?

    I just got my froyo for my incredible… but now my phone won't lock!
    I've changed the passwords a few times and when I go to unlock my phone and slide the bar down there's no option for me to unlock it with a pass code.

      Sounds like maybe the password lock has some sort of timeout setting? Maybe if it has to be locked for like 3 minutes or so before it will prompt for a password again. Just a thought.

    Just woke up @ 8am EST and my Droid Incredible phone displayed a message saying that there is an update available for me to install… GOT MY FROYO!

    Got Froyo update this morning on my Incredible and it had the weirdest effect: my phone stopped recognizing my SanDisk 8 gig SD card. I tried everything — power cycling the phone, taking out the card and the battery in various permutations, plugging in to my computer, etc. It was just not usable. I even called HTC support (mistake – the lady I talked to was 100 years old). Had to format it and now it's working again.

    So word of warning: back up the files on your SD card before accepting the update!

    Got my OTA update at 12am on the dot. what a difference! ATX

  • Christopher

    everyone is saying that your unable to get the OTA pushed to your Droid Incredible when rooted but i'm rooted and i just got the OTA update sent to my phone. i ignored it cause i dont want to lose my root, i'll just wait till they root Froyo.. i'm in Los Angeles, if that really makes a difference.

      I don't think you'll lose your root. I didn't anyway. Normaly when I upgrade as long as i'm rooted to begin with it sticks. and if for some reason you do lose your root. Just use the universal root app here at DL and you will be rooted again in no time. it works with 2.2.! GL *edit* NM. I was thinking of the X. Not sure if you can root 2.2 on the incredible yet. But you probably won't lose it anyway. But definitely check it out and see if you can.
