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!

  • digital1

  • HP

    I just updated my DI and now there are apps not working and my internet and GPS is not functional and “force close”-ing…..so much for the 'testing' phase.

    I can say I was running about -87db on signal. With the new baseband, I’m running around -74db do definitely an improvement there! I haven’t really had a chance to put the battery to the test or check out the 720p recording. Flash played great on msnbc.com. A little slow to load but that website has so much crap on it to begin with but once loaded, the video was not choppy.

    I did notice that it seemed to improve my inbound call quality. Before it seemed like the first part of a conversation was always chopped off or the sound would fade in an out. I talked to my wife on the way home from work and noticed that I didn’t have that problem once.

    I just spoke to a Verizon Employee at a store in Mass, and he confirmed (though would not be “quoted) that the OTA for Droid X Froyo was due to start on 9/3. He said for sure “early September”…

      • Monstasofdamidway

        MMMMMM Sadies! Went there when I visited my nephews. Love them enpanadas!

    • Alan B

      No, people in Albuquerque cannot get the update if they are rooted. You’d need to go to Roswell for that.

      if your rooted with unrevoked3 you need to do unrevoked forever on your phone then flash the stock recovery on to your phone to retain root access and get the official 2.2 update pushed to your phone
      if you need help i have video on youtube search unrevoked forever
      there is also a file you can download with all the files you need to do it that is with the video

  • Aguest

    25th!! And no update in Western PA yet…

  • MobileDanDoes

    Looking forward to getting 2.2 on my DrX so I can drop my apps onto the SD card, and to try out my HID bluetooth keyboard.

  • http://twitter.com/MrTissues Jack

    By testing they mean the leaked ROM users who will not be updated by Motorola. Oh well I guess I will wait for Birdman, Motorola won't get any money off of the bloatware they prepackage from me.

  • affliction_DX

  • markwc2010

    Updated in Birmingham, AL…some very nice additions to an already cool phone.

  • JD

    Im in SoCal. I got my update this morning. It appeared to have hung. I was rooted and am unrooting my DI so I dont have the same problem again. Unfortunately, I no longer see the update available….so I will call Verizon to see if they can push it to me again.

  • markwc2010

    Love the flashlight!

  • Franksilva503

    got it this morning. I finally have a Real Flashlight!

    • markwc2010

      Love the flashlight!

  • Joe Liotta

    I downloaded Froyo with the .exe instructions for DI that was posted last week. Is this an official release as well or should I do a factory reset and install through the .zip file now that it is official??

  • sruble21

  • Evermour

    Got mine last night, though i hate the problem with froyo and task killers = and all this time i thought we were going to be the last ones getting the update…guess not. Plus i didnt know you can have flash on while taking a video. Man. Was this something new? lol it really couldve came in handy TWO WEEKS AGO -__-

    • Bryan

      That feature is new with the update!

  • Cchorner1975

    I just have to say that although Froyo has alot of great new features….i got my ota update this morning at 6:45 est…..i’m not quite sure why i was so anxious for it! lol, I won’t be using my hotspot cuz of the $20 fee, between home internet and 3 phones with internet charges already paying over $150 just for internet, i do have a flashlight now YAY!, i must say my favorite feature of froyo is the ability send text messages with the keyboard open, you’d think we were waiting for playstation 4 or something!

    Please release the X soon, I am getting tempted to do the leak, but I rather get the official 2.2 and wait for the bootloader to get hacked before I start playing with ROMs.

    Did the manual update and everything running smooth so far! Even noticed more bars and now Exchange works better with our Zimbra mail client

  • Stevaroo01

    I pulled my phone out to make a call this morning around 9 and there was the message I’ve been waiting for… “Updates are available”! I can now say that my first taste of Froyo is very nice!
    Update took no more than 10 minutes. There are several new apps (besides the ones that you all know about and are anxiously waiting for. There is also a new boot animation (very cool!!) and several design tweaks here and there.
    For those of you who haven’t been updated yet, don’t despair! Hang in there… it’s coming and you’re gonna love it!

  • MetalPhoenix79

    Thanks for the update. At least we know we should have it by the 3rd. Of course, with my luck it wouldn’t be any earlier.

    Got it in MD about 2 hours ago. Loaded down with a nice heap of bloatware.

  • Mavcable

    For those that continue to comment with their city/state: Your location, when / where you purchased the phone, how long you’ve been a Verizon customer, etc. have absolutely NOTHING to do with the OTA roll-out process. In this case, the word “random” takes on a whole new meaning.

    How many times has that been mentioned over the past few weeks on every Android site on the Internet? *sigh*

    There is a very simple manual update option available now for those that just can’t wait.

  • NMMI89
