DROID Incredible Update Ready, Looks Like a Bug Fixer

A new Droid Incredible update appears to be ready and should fix a bunch of little bugs that have plagued users since moving to Android 2.2.  There is also a fix for Flash 10.1 which looks like it will take care of the issue mentioned in Adobe’s latest security advisory.  Full list after the break, or you could just click on the image above.  

Improvements:  (3.26.605.1/Baseband Version:
+ Updated Flash® player includes security enhancements.
+ Visual Voice Mail Wi-Fi improvements include removal of incorrect service messages and post-call notifications.
+ Enhanced support for Yahoo!® IMAP email.
+ Updated Slacker application.
+ Attach files larger than 5 MB.
+ Updated COX POP3 email settings.
+ Play YouTube videos in YouTube application.
+ Seamlessly switch between portrait and landscape views in Google Maps.™
+ Updated Comcast POP3 email settings.
+ Search key and other buttons displayed in correct order.

+ Preinstalled V CAST Apps lets users purchase applications directly from their devices and bill them to a Verizon Wireless account.

So nothing major in there, but your phone should love you much more afterwards.

More info here.

Cheers Mike!

  • Well It seems like Droid Incredible has taken the backseat, even though it's still a pretty new phone. Thanks for sharing this…

  • I havent any word to appreciate this post…..Really i am impressed ,Well I waited until after the last update to root, so I haven't experienced an OTA update while rooted..thanks for shared this with us.

  • Joy, more bloatware, more bugs. Ever since this update, I have been losing my 3G connection and have to do the *228 thing. I called Verizon and they said they recommend using the *228 programming every few weeks. Verizon fails.

    does anyone know if skyraider will still work after this upgrade?

  • Jamiemadroxsr

    My camcorder has been COMPLETELY fragged since upgrading to 2.2.

    It'll open, but I can't record or even push any other buttons but the home key, at which point the entire phone will be so slow that it requires a complete battery pull/restart to regain functionality.

    Sooooo frustrating that this hasn't been addressed, because I know there are others out there with the same issue…

    • Emerson Lenon

      I had the same problem, sounds like your SD card is corrupt.
      Back up all the data, do a low level format and then copy your files back over.
      Presto no problems.

    Hope someone makes an Update.zip from it!

  • Stevaroo01

    Any idea when it will start? I like anything that'll improve my DInc!!

  • vitsdroid

    I got the free dinc at bestbuy last Friday and it already has this update, same baseband and version but no vcast store. Regardless I rooted it and took most of the crap off.

    • clookie

      i also got mine last friday and it has 2.1 on it and keeps saying it is “up to date”!!?? 🙁 I've been trying to pull the update every day and it will now download it. Maybe they suspended the original 2.2 update in anticipation of this one coming out? I hope!

    • Daledavis94

      how did your root your dinc. I just got the update and rooting seems to be impossible!!!

  • kimir

    will it get 2.3?

  • Jbrookshire13

    @madfatter if this update is the same as the leaked one then it will come with a new kernel that improves battery life and charges at the old 2.1 rate. I've been using that kernel for almost a month now. It's awesome.

    • Devonpack

      which kernel is that?

  • Madfatter

    awesome, bullshit fixes and yet the 2 most major problems plaguing all incredibles: the issue with the battery not charging properly, and fact that I bought a phone with 8 gigs of internal memory,m and one gig on board and yet I cant install more than 500 megs without it thinking the phone is full and throwing up a low space notifications, not installing any more programs, locking up my text messagess, etc. way to go htc and verizon on focusing on things that actually matter…

    • overtsilence

      That's not a problem. The 8 gigs of internal memory isn't part of the storage area for apps.

      • Madfatter

        the fact that they arnt is a problem, the memory is in the phone, there is no reason it should not recognize that, whats the point of having all this on board storage if you cant use it for apps?

  • Cris

    Does anybody know when the droid X fix up update will be coming out? You know, to fix the bugs we (droid X owners) have.


    vcast apps? So their store is live now? Cool, can't wait for it on my Dx or if it ever comes out….Incredible hd 🙂

    • kellex

      I totally missed that part of it…wow.

      • eddieonofre

        Lol seems that every one missed
        I am with kellex , I skip everything that has the word vcast just because of so much vcast garbage (vcast navegation, etc, etc, etc) now I don't know if this is going to be a good market place or just another vcast garbage

  • dellbx

    What I want to know is when will the unwanted, unsupported Motorola stepchild, Droid X getting its bugs fixed

    • kellex

      Don't we all want to know this. 🙁

      • dellbx

        Kellex, of all people, I thought YOU would be the one person who could find out

    • fillsee226

      Ditto… had to give up my X because of failed hot spot. Traded for Incredible and now very happy so far. GOODBYE MOTO.

  • Boltcc

    If I rooted my droid will I get the update?

    • What about fixing the signal bar issue

      • DeliMan

        That's still not fixed? wow.

    • Paul

      I am also rooted. I hope I can get this update.


  • Jem Harris

    Might be a dumb question, but if we are rooted do we still get the update or just have to pass on it? I waited until after the last update to root, so I haven't experienced an OTA update while rooted.

    • kellex

      Pass on it.

      • Jem Harris

        Got it, doesn't sound all that important anyways. Lovin' me some MIUI so I think I'll be ok lol.

  • Qwertyfingers

    4th 🙂

    • DeliMan

      Congrats! You win a stinky dish towel!

  • EC8CH

    Enhanced Bloatware… sweeeet

  • I hope we get the new version of sense

    • Qwertyfingers

      Hell ya

    • kellex

      Now that would be amazing. No news on if that will happen though.

      • fallofshadows

        I doubt it, I can’t see verizon being THAT nice to us… It seems like Droid Incredible has taken the backseat, even though it’s still a pretty new phone.

        Speaking of the new sense, aren’t there some custom ROMs that use a theme like it? I’m looking for something fast, and cyanogen doesn’t run PowerAmp.

    • What about fixing the signal bar issue and no signal on 2.2
