DROID Incredible 2 Gingerbread Update is Ready

Now this is the stuff we like to see on a Friday!  The Gingerbread (Android 2.3) update for the DROID Incredible 2 is now ready according to Verizon’s support pages.  The update will finally bring the phone’s software into 2011 and make your overall experience so much more stable and enjoyable.  There really is nothing like GB – it makes Froyo feel like Android 1.6.

It’s 116MB, so when this thing starts rolling out (maybe next week?), you’ll want to make sure you have a full charge and are near a WiFi network.

The update will also include a new Wireless Charging UI plus a Desktop Dock App which leads us to believe that a new docking station is in the works.  And of course, this has us hoping that the Thunderbolt will receive something similar when it gets GB, since it currently lacks any docking special features when charging.

Speaking of the Thunderbolt…still nothing on that front.

Cheers Jordan!

    So what about the original incredible? They promised GB buy the end of Q2, wtf…….nothing..

  • Frustrated TB Owner

    As an OG Incredible owner a current TB owner, I feel that I was screwed. I still have both phones, Inc for my dad and TB for me and neither of them have got gingerbread. I understand that HTC/Verizon want to update their newest phones to the latest and greatest software. It’s a matter of priority. But C’mon! the TB is not an old phone.

    By the way, After 3 swaps, I’m lucky that my TB doesn’t have the issues that most users have. No reboots, just crappy GPS locking and battery life.

    “There really is nothing like GB – it makes Froyo feel like Android 1.6.”   What does this mean?  Author has surely never used GB if this is what he really thinks.  but to be expected I guess.

    yea, what about the original Incredible.  Poor little phone is not seeing the love.

    I got the TB the day it came out and couldn’t deal with the battery life. Got the ext. battery too but it just feels like a brick with that huge bump on the back. So, right before I was traveling to Europe, I got the Dinc 2 and now love this phone. Battery lasts me all day. It is light and super fast, too. I still have the TB but now sure if I will switch back anytime soon. I will see what kind of improvements it gets with the GB update (if it gets it one day)

  • Bxrider117

    Everyone is complaining about not receiving an update for the Tbolt. If you purchase an Android phone and follow the forums then you should be willing to take the plug and install a custom rom. The Tbolt has gingerbread and a few developers have put together stable versions on r the Rom. If toy are waiting for Verizon to tell you when you can have out then just continue waiting and stop complaining, it will come eventually. If not root your phone and install some of the great roms that are available.

    • @wade_county

      That’s not the point. I get that you can root your phone and throw custom ROMs, but as the end consumer you should be able to get updates before phones that came out after. Verizon sold a phone that had major gps, battery, and 3g/4g issues.. then puts out an official update that made the phone even worse that reboots… oh lets 4 times a day. How would you feel as an end consumer? Verizon isn’t exchanging phones to a different model, they just tell YOU TO WAIT for an update to fix a problem they (VERIZON WIRELESS) pushed out or send you a refurb that does the same crap. Rooting and custom roms is not the reason people walk in the store to buy this phone.

    re: my HTC Thunderbolt

    I have been waiting patiently for the Gingerbread upgrade and a fix for the rebooting and GPS locking issues. Imagine my frustration when the Gingerbread upgrade was released today for the Incredible 2. Incredibly insulting. Please make it a priority, above all else,  to correct the serious problems with the  Thunderbolt. A class action law suit is the next step.

      I really wanted a Thunderbolt earlier this year, but just couldn’t pull the trigger with all the issues(which were mostly just battery ones back then). So I went with the dinc2, no 4G, but no other serious issues either. They should let all TB owners be eligible for an immediate upgrade no matter how much time is left on their contracts. Epic failure!

    ok, so the question is if I upgrade to GB via the OTA from Verizon will I be able to root via Alpharev???

    • Rperez076

      Probably not

      • Nick

        Shit! What about downloading the update, then once AlphaRev comes out with there s-off method doing a factory reset on the phone? Shouldn’t that bring me back to Froyo since that is what it shipped with from the factory?

        • Anonymous

          Doubt factory reset would take you to a pre-update state. AlphaRev has warned that either the leaked GB update or the OTA update will close the exploit being used to get root. Just wish they would hurry up and release AlphaRev S-off for DInc2.

    The thunderbolt isn’t the worst verizon phone and probably not the best. so i can deal with my thunderbolt for another 2 years but once my contract is up i’ll be switching carriers. unless they do more with the thunderbolt to make it better. i’d rather have a carrier with bad service then a phone thats been abandoned.

  • Mr. Joe

    Now what about the original Incredible?

  • Mule0331

    There has got to be something going on with the TB. I’ve been hitting update and since about midnight I keep getting service is unavailable. I usually get that when they are prepping something

      no it just means service unavailable. Mine used to do that then now it says software is up to date.

    If I wait until the Bionic comes out, and there have still been no updates for the TB, do you guys think that I could demand a different phone due to reboots among other issues? After all these broken promises I’m really starting to hate Verizon even more. I prefer HTC to Motorola but the specs on the bionic are great.

      You could demand whatever you want. The best you can expect is a refurb TB. You should have waited for the Bionic.

      • lkjjggfdsa

        I wanted to wait but I wasn’t on a smartphone plan with Verizon so I would have been stuck with tiered data. I will probably just sell my TB on Craigslist and buy the Bionic off contract.

    • Anonymous

      I demanded a TB after my Droid X started not working, (my 5th) and they didn’t let me get it until after a month from its release. 

      And after that I asked for my X back since it doesn’t act up nearly as much as the TB.

      HTC is awful with accessories.  The Incredible 1 was supposed to have one, but it was cancelled 6 months later.  It’s really weird.

      • Yeah, HTC pedia had an article up about it and they said that the reason was “it had no official landscape support for when it was placed in a dock”  could have been a legitimate excuse but I think Sammy does better on accessory support than any other manufacturer. The Galaxy SII has a lot of neat accessories, including a true multimedia dock that has speakers built into it.

        Gingerbread…..nope

          I know not everyone is into rooting…. but i have CM7 installed and my phone Is literally 3x faster than stock, i can Skype video chat, watch netflix seamlessly, and have no reboots at all. Yes, Verizon and htc have abandoned this phone, but the developer community has embraced this phone 100%….I no longer regret buying my thunderbolt, the only thing I miss is the super amoled screen from my ” fassy” lol….

          • I’m not afraid of rooting, my OG Droid was for over a year before taking the plunge with the Tbolt.

            What has made me hesitate is some of the horror stories that have surrounded the Tbolt rooting.I chose it because I truly believed it was going to be one of the phones that Verizon and HTC would really support, and boy was I wrong.

          • I hear you. I hate the lack of support it’s getting, but honestly, with CM7, it’s easily the best phone out there.

          • I will admit rooting the Tbolt is a lot scarier than root the OG, but honestly take the plunge their are a couple right ups that step by step show you how to do it and it wasn’t that bad. The Tbolt stock is a decent phone with some major flaws manly battery life. Root that puppy and never worry about OTA’s ever again.

          Don’t forget lousy 3G to 4G hand off support. Many small quirks and scre ups that Gingerbread would take care of. One of the leading selling points of this phone was SKYPE. It never worked from day one. What a fuc—- joke. Verizon should be absolutely ashamed of themselves being the leading carrier in the USA. They are just hurting themselves the longer this goes on.

          • MD

            Massive amounts of cash means never having to feel ashamed about anything, or afraid of anything like lawyers, clash action lawsuits, the law, the police, bad publicity…

            The companies/people who currently control most of America’s and the world’s wealth could care less about you and your silly phones. Do you think these people (http://blogs.forbes.com/scottdecarlo/2010/09/24/americas-richest-ceos/) think of you any differently than they do a small annoying insect? Do you think these people play with smartphone apps? No. They’re busy finding even better way to insulate themselves from you. They’re finding more efficient ways to control the avenues of wealth. They busy doing R&D on the next big distraction.

            While I understand what you are saying… it takes me about 15 minutes to root the T-Bolt. If you are willing to simply pay for the round trip overnight (or whatever) shipping I would do it for free. It’s no big deal, and I’ve done mine and several of my friends that have them. The first time I was a little shaky… 🙂 only because it was different from what I was used to with Moto phones.

        I have to say, I DON’T feel sorry for the TBolt crowd. The phone was a disaster from the get go, you all should have known that a long time ago. If the months of delays weren’t key enough to inferior product, I don’t know what was. Too many bugs that will never be fully fixed. I actually had an internal buddy of mine tell me “it should have never seen the light of day.” 

        At least Moto took the Bionic back instead of pushing a half baked phone.

          It’s easy to have that opinion when you don’t own the phone and read so much crap about it. However I’ve had mine since about a week after launch and never had an issue. (except when Verizon was having network issues) I also have friends that have the phone with no problems at all. It is the best phone I’ve owned to date… compared against (D1, D2, DX)

          As far as being a forgotten phone that doesn’t get updates… you gotta be kidding… the phone has not been out that long. I don’t know why people expect an update every other week. However it is irritating that the Inc2 is getting official Gingerbread before the Bolt…. I’ll give ya that.

          Just got my daughter the Inc2 yesterday… at least she will be happy.

  • Good lord HTC, your ‘flagship’ phone AKA the Thunderbolt still has 2.2? Really? Maybe it’s time to get that done…..

      lol…The TB isn’t their flagship. 
      HTC Sensation? HTC EVO 3D?

      • Meh you might be right now, it held the crown for a bit but seems to have lost its standing with HTC…

      • It currently is for 4G, the Revolution and Charge aren’t.  Bionic is the next 4G flagship

          We are talking about it being HTC’s flagship. Which it is not. 
          It loses to the Sensation and EVO 3D in almost every spec, and has tons of issues. 

          BTW the Charge is Verizons flagship 4G phone as of now. It has a better screen than the TB, better battery, and doesn’t reboot itself constantly. 

          The TB is hardly a finished phone. 

          • It was meant for 2010 when it was going to launch as the Incredible HD, but Verizon forced HTC to swap out the radio and have it as a cheap 4G phone to launch its LTE network with. The phone might cost us a bundle, but for Verizon and HTC, its a cheap one thanks to the plas-tastic materials they used… 

            if it weren’t for it being delayed for the antenna swap, it would have been a great phone, but the delays pretty much destroyed this device and kept it from being a great flagship phone.  

            There’s a good chance they might be making Samsung do the same thing for the Galaxy SII with all the rumors that sprung up today.  It wouldn’t make sense to launch a 3G only super phone in a 4G generation, only the mid range phones are getting that designation now it seems.

            Bionic might be next but HTC has some more for Verizon, i guess we’ll have to wait and see about the GB update if it comes after the Incredible 2’s.  The leaked MR2 fixed the rebooting issues but it added a few new ones to data and wifi and bluetooth. 

            so if it fixes all these PLUS the rebooting still, i will be fine, atleast until i see how the Bionic does

            not once has my tbolt turned off or rebooted on its own since i updated to the leaked MR2

        Agree verizon is treating it like the red headed step child lol. Good thing Ill be ditching it here in a few weeks for the bionic. Verizon and HTC really dropped the ball on this one.

          I will be joining you. I hate HTC. I’d rather have a locked down Motorola phone than this HTC garbage.

            Agree because atleast moto is launching the bionic with gb rather than froyo. Locked down or not atleast it will be the latest software.

          • Mr. Joe

            HA HA

            Really?  Where’s all that love for the unlock stuff?  Obviously you guys will never be fully satisfied with ANYTHING

          • Anonymous

            being locked down didnt stop the dx and d2 from getting dev support. I am sure there will be lots of support for the bionic. And most likely since this phone wasnt rushed to the market it most likely wont have half the bugs my thunderbolt has.

          • I used to love HTC, but ever since the ThunderBolt nonesense with the delays, broken promises, problems with the phone and other carriers getting a better device so far this year, i’ve lost my respect for them. I’m seriously thinking of just getting a Bionic when its out next month since it will have OFFICIAL Netflix support thanks to that OMAP 4 processor and maybe even Hulu Plus and a bigger screen and hopefully, HOPEFULLY less bugs than the Tbolt…

        Abandoned… really?  How old is the phone?  Patience my friends…. it is coming.  You notice you didn’t have any notice that the Bolt update that is rolling out now was coming. They are not going to announce anything before it comes.  There are plenty of Gingerbread roms for the Bolt out there which should make it obvious that they are working on it.  Don’t you want them to make sure it’s right before sending it out?  

        As soon as it comes out though people will be complaining that they don’t have Ice Cream Sandwich.

        Be happy and enjoy your phones.  And if you don’t enjoy what you have get something else… it’s as simple as that.

    • Not sure it be the flagship anymore. Me thinks it was more of an experimental device, with all of the bugs, lack of support, and….ginger-step-childness. lol
