Gingerbread Test Build Leaks for the DROID Incredible (Updated)

Just like we saw with the HTC Thunderbolt earlier in the week, a test build of Gingerbread (Android 2.3) has emerged for the DROID Incredible and is available for download.  This file isn’t flashable to your device, but I’m sure there are a couple of devs in the crowd that wouldn’t mind making that happen.

*Note - This is not for the Incredible 2.

Update:  Instructions and files posted here.

Cheers Nick!

    Well after a two attempts to get past the splash screen, I booted into recovery and am going back to cm83 till I try it again.

    So, now the question is, how long before VZW gets around to pushing it out OTA? And, will it actually work properly (unlike my DInc’s newer, bigger brother)?

    In any case, I’m definitely looking forward to having GB on my DInc! I’m glad VZW hasn’t given up on it competely even though it’s past it’s prime! And for the record, the DInc is still way better than some of the newer phones that are being released… and not far off from some of the “high-end” Droids that are coming out lately. Slightly bigger screen and they could re-release it as a new phone… oh, I guess that would be the DInc2. Lol!

    Not trying to be snarky here, but why should I care about this over Cyanogen 7.0.3 or any of the other gingerbread ROMs that have been out for months? So I can be totally stock? I’ve had Gingerbread since OMGB came out with it months ago. Good that Verizon has finally gotten off its ass, but is this Flash any better than anything already out there? I could see caring if I wasn’t one to root their phone, but I’m pretty sure that audience is fairly minimal here.

      720p for one. Then, other sense based roms to follow after. Even if you prefer vanilla over sense, really cool stuff will now be able to be whipped up for those that care. That plus the 720p

    If this is not flashable, what do we have to do to load it on our phones?

    So does GB fix the battery charging issue with the Droid Incredible??

     If this is anything like the “test release” for the Thunderbolt, I’d stay away.

     Well…looks like Verizon is going to give everyone Gingerbread. Maybe right before the BIONIC is released? Or Right after? Hmmmmmm…… I have a feeling Kellex knows more than he is letting on about the BIONIC … he he
