DROID Incredible Finally Receiving Gingerbread Update Right Now?

I’m as confused as you are by that title. The DROID Incredible was supposed to receive Gingerbread (Android 2.3) back in September, but as non-rooted owners of the device know, that sort of happened yet didn’t at the same time. It vanished as quickly as it was available, only to never be mentioned of by HTC again. And then just moments ago, one of our readers was prompted to receive a new update with build number 4.08.605.2 which differs from that of the original Android 2.3 build. The odd thing you will notice here, is that Verizon is claiming this update to be just 8.6MB, but how could that be if some of the people scheduled to receive this are still running 2.2? Wouldn’t this update need to be of epic proportions? Confusion at its finest.

To those of you still running a stock non-rooted Incredible, please check for a software update now. And if you are on 2.2 or 2.3, let us know which so that we can straighten this out.

More info.

Cheers Hannah!

    Is anyone having their screen dim and “Loading” come up for as long as 10 seconds before loading one of the home screens when I hit back or home buttons (for lack of a better way to describe them). It doesn’t happen all the time, but it’s happening a lot more with the 4.08 update.

    Maybe that’s normal now rather than a force close? Maybe its a new “feature” for us??? ūüėČ LOL

    Just curious if anyone else is noticing this and if I should be concerned…

    Any input greatly appreciated. 

  • kevvvvv

    i just got the 4.08 update last night. im happy

    My build is 4.06.605.3   A small update soon after 605.2   Never intentionally installed it.

  • Beth Ruths

    My phone keeps randomly rebooting now after 4.08 update, sometimes in an infinite loop where I have to remove the battery, wait ten minutes, then reinstall the battery and reboot. That seems to fix it for the time being, but how annoying. 

    Is anyone else having THIS issue??? 

  • Wrigbone

    For the people that get the update and then it just goes away it is more than likely you have a rooted phone, Even if you just unrevoked and never did a custom rom apparently this is what happens. I got the notification that 1st night and it has not come back…tried the clock set – the *#*#checkin#*#* – *228 and nothing. I was fully prepared to lose root and just get Gingerbread so I accepted but what what a read online it will not even allow you to do the OTA. A guy over at XDA has converted the upgrade to an installable rom if you are rooted and want this. I waited a couple days to see if there are any issues with it but am about to give it a shot. Only problem is a complete wipe of the phone first is required. Oh well it will be like having a brand new device until I get my Nexus ūüôā

    This is what I got to work to get the 4.08.605.2 update installed successfully on two different Incredibles, both stock/non-rooted, one with a lot of extra apps, and one with only two extra apps. It looks like a lot of work, but is actually very easy to complete, and NO factory reset is required:
    – Move as many apps as you can to the SD card (for those having issues accessing them on the SD card, the upgrade to 4.08.605.2 cured this for me).
    – Clear out as much text messaging space as you can, especially images. Alternately, you can delete them all. Messages eat a lot of processing memory on these phones.
    – Hit the Clear Data (and/or Clear Cache) button on large use applications (email, Gmail, facebook, etc.) After doing this, do not access those apps until after¬†installing the update.¬†For some, you will have to sign in again, but no data was lost since they’re synced items. (To do this step, go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications, select the All tab at the top, and go into each app you want to manage.)
    РPress & hold the Power Button and choose Restart.
    – As soon as the screen goes blank, press and hold the Power Button and the Volume Down button at the same time.
    РA white menu screen will appear, it will take a second and it will perform a small self-check. Then using your Volume Down button, scroll down one spot to Recovery and press the Power button to select it. The phone will immediately show the HTC Incredible screen.
    – Then a black screen will appear showing the phone and a red triangle with exclamation point, at this point press and hold the Volume Up button and then press the Power button. Using your Volume Down button again, scroll down to Wipe Cache Partition and press the Power button to select it. This will not delete anything on the phone, just clear a stagnant memory cache.
    – After this is complete, select Reboot System Now. Let the phone restart completely.
    – Go to Settings > About Phone > System Updates and see if the update shows. If it does, simply select Download or Reboot & Install. If it fails again due to “not enough memory”, you need to clear more apps and data and repeat the above steps¬†until it works.
    – If the update does not show, back out to Settings, choose Date & Time, uncheck the Automatic box, and set the date 1 year ago from today (11-xx-2010), and hit Ok.
    – Return to About Phone > System Updates, it may still show “Your system is currently up to date.” Back out and then¬†go right back in¬†to System Updates. It should be downloading the 4.08.605.2¬†patch update file. Reboot and Install when it prompts you. If it fails again due to “not enough memory”, you need to clear more apps and data until it works.
    Give it time to install, on one of my phones it took only a few minutes and on the other it took closer to 10 minutes. On one phone the Droid eye appeared for only a minute and then the phone started up completely and on the other it appeared for closer to five minutes. After the install, remember to return your Date & Time to automatic.
    For any apps that aren’t accessible and¬†show up with the Droid icon, you should be able to select and remove the icon and simply add it back from your App menu. Alternately, you can re-download it from your Market.

    Hope this helps!

      Genius!! Worked like a charm. So far no problems! Thank you!!

      my phone has been on the rebooting screen for like 10 minutes. i wonder if this is normal. nothing is actually happening

      • Fazer

        I had that happen on the second Incredible I did, I¬†guess it’s more widespread than I thought because I’ve seen this being reported elsewhere this morning. In any case, I held the power button down, chose restart, the phone restarted, and I did all of the above steps again. Second time everything worked like it was supposed to.

      OMG you are amazing sir

      I’ve been trying to find a fix for this when it rejected the 4.08 update and this worked very well


    • Angela Harbaugh

      Wow- I think a factory reset was way easier than all that, lol. But glad you have this info to pass on to others! ¬†I tried the clear cache and even format phone space (after getting 4.06 update then stonewalled during the 4.08 update lack of space issue) ¬†will all aps either uninstalled or on backup on my SD…apps kept force closing. ¬†Said screw it, factory reset, immediately after activating it dropped in the 4.08 update and installed it with no problems. Been smooth and sweet ever since. ¬†
      I think my battery life is a little better now. 

      Good luck to you guys, I know this was frustrating as ever!

      • Beth Ruths

        I agree, Angela, that the factory reset was easier for me as well. I have an app that backs up my apps so it was really fairly painless to just reset and reinstall apps. I have nearly all my data backing up to the cloud or saving on my SD card. I think the battery life seems a little better too but time will tell. Charging the battery now for the first time in a few days. Phone seems to run faster too. Time will tell though… ūüôā¬†

    • Anonymous

      Thank you!¬† My phone had the low space message after trying to update.¬† My suggestion is to uninstall apps you don’t need or that are large because I followed all the steps the first time and still got the low space message, then had to delete apps and wipe cache again like suggested in your instructions.¬† Thanks for these instructions, I was so frustrated!

    • Hmax23

      I made a bad mistake somewhere and need help. ¬†I was stepping through the above procedure and when the I rebooted everything was gone. ¬†I had to interface with Verizon to get the phone back operational, but they couldn’t get 3G working. ¬†Is there anything that can be done to get things working?

      Worked like a charm. Thanks!

      Somebody have babies with this person so his offspring can continue to be super helpful to the rest of the world when we’re in desperate need of IT support.

    • I’ve done this three times. Each time, the phone downloads the update but when it says it’s rebooting, it freezes and the screen returns to home. FINALLY, after performing the above instructions by Fazer, I think IT’S WORKING! I got the green reboot arrow. Woo hoo! Fingers crossed…

    • Rafael Castilla

      Thanks a lot, Fazer!  It took several attempts and a lot of clearing of application data, but it finally worked.

    My phone prompted me for an update this week.¬† But, when I pressed “Update Now” nothing happened.¬† Just sent me back to my home screen.¬† Still on 2.2.

  • Mark

    Same problem here with the 2nd update. Very frustrating. Whatever you do, don’t plug it into your laptop or PC until the bug gets fixed. I did this and it froze my computer and now the phone keeps rebooting every 10 minutes or so…Ugh..

  • Hmax23

    I got the update but didn’t install it. ¬†I wanted do some research first. ¬†Now the notification is gone. ¬†Will I eventually get another notification?

  • R2D2

    Couple of days ago I received the upgrade message and successfully installed “Android version 2.3.4 Builder number 4.06.605.3” with a lot of issues like missing apps and battery issues.

    Today very early in the morning I received another update notification, I acepted it and successfully installed “Android version 2.3.4 Builder number 4.08.605.2” as a result I got back all the missing apps, but the battery is draining faster than ever.

    Any idea on hoew to fix this issue?

  • Ashleya

    How do I get the update after I clicked Install Later?

  • Deiler

    What a mess. ¬†I got the second update this morning, but it failed because it said there was not enough space. ¬†The newest update is supposed to address the low space issue, but the low space issue keeps it from updating. ¬†Now I can’t seem to get the update to be pushed to me again. ¬†I called HTC and they said I just have to wait. ¬†They said it could happen today, or it could be as long as 14 days. ¬†Grrrr….¬†

    My youngest son and I have identical Verizon Droid HTC Incredibles, only difference being that mine is successfully rooted (never caused a single problem) and his isn’t.¬† We both received notification of the system update yesterday and clicked “Install Now”.¬† His installed and rebooted successfully, and he is now at Android level 2.3.4.¬† When I clicked “Install Now”, that screen went away and absolutely nothing else happened.¬† If I check for system updates under settings, I am told my system is up to date.¬† It isn’t. I am still on Android 2.2.¬† So now what???

  • JMurda578

    Got the update but now when I try and view my pictures it says there nothing there and when I take pictures it still says this

  • Dave

    Yesterday I received the update to 4.06 and all the crap that followed.
    This morning I was prompted to update to 4.08.  I accepted but after reboot it stated that I did not have enough free memory to install the update.
    When I checked the memory I have 5 of 7.4GB available on the SD card and 537 of 748MB available on the phone memory.How is THAT a memory issue.  They really need to figure this out, and soon.

    • Anonymous

      try clearing your Mail trash folders.  That process gave me all the space needed.  Apparently when you delete an email, it goes to Trash and stays there indefinitely.

      • Dave

        I just tried what JasonSCarter suggested about changing the time to force the update. ¬†That seemed to work as it downloaded the update, until it got to the “reboot” portion of the install where it hung up indefinitely…

  • Oh and in my settings is says “4.3” WVGA resolution”…even though my Incredible is a 3.7″ AMOLED lol

  • Was told to download another update last night but it said I didn’t have enough phone app memory…so I cleaned it and tried again but it said i was already up to date…did I miss out on anything cool? ¬†I got 2.3.4 already yesterday morning..

    Oh and Launcher EX is sooo much nice looking than Sense…especially since I’ve had Sense since April 2010 lol

    4.08 was received last night around midnight… ¬†East Coast Time. ¬†Installed and all is good…

    waited the day, did the *#*#checkin#*#* and did menu settings system updates several times -impatient, I was
    called HTC this morning
     informed that 4.06 was released on accident yesterday and the full 4.08 build was pushed out last night and should be going out in waves

    oh geez…I got on XDA where someone had posted the new .Zip file for the 4.0.8 update.¬† I tried to manually update it and it didn’t work either.¬† When it came back up, it said I still didn’t have enough space.¬† The low disk space error wasn’t present before I shut down.¬† This is stupid.¬† I guess the only other thing I can try is a factory reset, and do the update before I add any apps or set anything else up.¬†

  • RJ

    On 2.3 and just got the 4.08 update.

  • Saz00oo55

    I got the 2nd update last night but it did not install because of low memory and now its gone.
    I tried setting clock to 1230am this morning and tommorrow morning still nothing. I tried typing *#*#2432546#*#* which forces a check in. I get a message that says check-in successful but still nothing. Do we need to uninstall the “hello fota” that ran right before I got the message couldn’t install due to low memory?

      I had the same experience. ¬†The newest update is supposed to address the low space issue, but the low space issue keeps it from updating. ¬†Now I can’t seem to get the update to be pushed to me again. ¬†What a cluster-f$*%

  • Anonymous

    Person on Verizon forums siad to:  Manually change the time on your phone to 12:30am today. This will trigger an automatic check in with the update servers and you will get the appropriate update.
    For people who the update failed the first time…try that.

    • Michael Aaron Mann

      Were you able to get the phone to reboot? I tried the 12:30am trick and it worked but can’t reboot.¬† HTC said i would “just have to wait until i got it again”.

    • Dave

      I tried this and it downloaded and installed until it got to the reboot portion and it hung up. ¬†I tried hardbooting it but then it wouldn’t turn back on. ¬†I removed the battery and it did turn back on but still with the 4.06…

  • Anonymous

    Same problems here…got the 4.0.8 update notification this morning, but it didn’t install due to “low disk space.”¬† Sad that the bug they are trying to fix with the new build is so bad, it prevents us from going to the new build.¬† I have 550MB free…and the update is only 8MB.¬† Can’t find a way to attempt the update again as well.¬† Stupid.¬† In reality, I am starting to hate OTA updates.¬† I wish it was a manually download.

  • Bmf978

    I updated to 2.3.4 a few days ago. This morning i woke up to another update. It tried to install but failed due to the Low Disk Space error. After clearing some data out of the apps i restarted my phone but now the update is gone and I can not find it again.

    • Scorpiogrl7

      Exactly the same thing happened to me. Supposedly, tonight another update will be pushed out.

    • Gemininosferatu

      Same thing here – got the 2.3.4 update and then the 2nd update came
      through the next morning, and it failed because of a “Low Disk Space”
      error… and now when I check for system updates, it says “Your system is
      currently up to date,” even though I’m still on 2.3.4.¬† (Build 4.06.605.3)¬† I’ve done just
      about everything I could think of to reduce memory usage, including
      moving everything that I could to the SD card; clearing caches; deleting
      my call history, text messages, and internet histories; and of course just restarting the damn thing… but I still have that error in my status bar.¬† (Though restarting DID work – for about a half-hour)

      Does anyone know if uninstalling “hello, FOTA” and trying the update again is a *bad* idea?¬† I gather that it’s related to this issue.

      • Angela Harbaugh

        Same problem as you guys. Wasn’t banking that the second push to my phone of 4.08 would work either and the Verizon tech guy said could be a day, could be a week…with a screwed up phone?? ¬†PASS. so I backed everything up and did a Factory Rest that I really would rather avoid, BUT it worked. Came back easily, smooth, the 4.08 update popped right in after dialing *228 to activate. ¬†
        –and knock on wood, no low data message in two days and the battery seems to last longer- even with me reinstalling apps, playing around with it more than normal.¬†
        Good luck guys!!

    I was running android 2.2, and first received the original update to android 2.3 (4.06.605.3). ¬†Then a day later, I received an update with the fixes (4.08.605.2). ¬†Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough memory to complete the second update, so it stopped, and now I can’t figure out how to reinitiate it!

    • Mb0320tb

      Same problem. I received the first update last night (4.06.605.3), then got a notification about the second update (4.08.605.2) and it gave me the same error message. So…you’re not alone on that one.

    Just spoke with HTC.   They are aware of the problems with this OTA update on the Droid Incredible.  He said that he has been getting calls about it all night.  He read me a notice that Verizon had issued saying that they are working with Google, Verizon, and HTC to fix it.  And they will be sending out the update tomorrow (11/16/11), over the air.

    • hope to fix battery life problem.

    Can they not warn you to move everything from SD to the phone *before* the update is kicked off?

  • Did you lose root? If so, how long for unrevoked to crack it?-

  • Dincman

    I bought a Dinc about six months ago to tide me over until the next great phone that tickled my fancy. I bought the dinc specifically because it had good Dev support. I immediately s-off and rooted, and have been happily on Gb rims since.

    What I don’t understand is why anyone on droid-life wouldn’t have done the same? Or even if it is your wifes phone, as seems to be common, do it for her? I mean c’mon, these devices can’t still be under warranty, so why not? Why be dependent on the corporate overseers?

  • Battery life is worse since the upgrade. Probably by about 20%.

  • Big Chris

    I use MIUI. I’m on the latest 1.11.14

  • Jhl3

    So, update to 4.06.605.3 breathes a bit of new life into the dinc. Battery life is worse by about 15-20%. Anyone else experiencing this?

    • Anonymous

      agree.  Battery life is definitely worse after the update.  More than 20% faster drain on my DInc

    • Saz00oo55

      Yes but this is the update that is supposed to be patched just don’t know when

  • Sap3069

    I had the z4root but after the update  i got today the phone is all screwed up. drops bluetooth calls and all kind neat stuff. Its 2.3.4 with a 4.06.605.3  CL140944 release keys build. Is there a root app that will work for this now or do I need to wait before I try to do something?

  • Not trying to troll at all, but my Apple just released iOS 5.0.1, and I got it the same day. Google really, really needs to do something about how long it takes before they release source code until the time carriers and OEMs make it available. Also, they need to do something about how long the support is. Apple traditionally supports all phones for 3 years after the initial release for a device. Google needs to provide something similar. The Galaxy Nexus is what people should start moving toward, and say goodbye to all of these other phones with lackluster and spotty support.

    FWIW, I’m not an Apple fanboy, even though I own an iPhone. I’m a Linux user, and supporter of all OS’s, especially open source ones. However, I do believe Apple does some things much better, and support is one of them. They just strangle their users with their Orwellian culture. Odd, since the big commercial they rave about is Apple going against the Orwellian regime.

    Don’t do the factory reset, just unMount then reMount the SD card.¬† Restart once (while SD card is unmounted) ¬†if it does not work the first time.

  • Anonymous

    Got the 87.8MB update and got the 4.06 build not the 4.08.  Un-Mounted and Re-mounted my SD card and all the apps in the SD card came back.  Pesky LOW MEMORY Icon would not go away.

    • Deiler

      I can’t get the low memory icon to go away either.

      • Anonymous

        I think I got it.  Scoured the web and found that a bloated Mail app is the culprit.  I went into all my TRASH folders and permanently deleted all previously deleted emails..  Apparently when you delete an email, it just goes to Trash folder and stays there indefinitely. 

        I followed this process and the Low Memory Icon went away, checked my Mail app and the file was reduced by about 10MB after all the deletions. 

        Good Luck

  • friend’s rooted/s-off (but otherwise stock) OG DInc got an OTA update last night. He’s still on Android 2.2.

  • John Shaw

    Wondering if this has happened to any one else after getting the update for this:

    My wife is currently on a road trip and received notification about the update. Thinking it was an update for something in the Market, she went ahead and installed the 2.3.4 update.

    After the update, her contacts are all now messed up and apparently they have been reverted to when she first setup her contacts on her phone. So, in essence, she’s lost about 150 new contacts since originally getting a phone. I’m not entirely sure if she had contacts syncing with Google or not, but figured I’d put out a feeler and see if anyone else had this issue.

  • Daoneok

    Today just got update version 2.3.4; Build number 4.06.605.3.

  • John Davids

    I told my buddy who owns this phone to try, as he has been stuck on 2.2 stock, zero roots, forever. When he first tried it told him there was no update. About an hour later it posted the 2.3.4 update. He accepted and installed. Now he is totally screwed. The update bricked his Google Account. He can no longer sign in to any google account on the web, not on his phone. Furthermore the preboot environment will not load on his phone preventing him from reverting the OS. The only thing the phone can do is text and make phone calls. Everything else is bricked.

    • CMo

      Same thing happened to me. He’s probably getting the Low Memory notification. If he moves all his apps to his SD card and clears out his texts,¬†the low memory thing will go away. Once that happens, you can sync your Google accounts and Google Talk will work again as well.

      Anything that was loaded on the SD card needs to be moved back to the phone (hard reboot) and then back to the SD card… ¬†It is a known bug…

        Not true. ¬†Unmount and remove the sdcard. ¬†Reset the phone. ¬†Reinstall the sdcard. ¬†Problem fixed ūüėČ

    My girlfriends phone got the update months ago but I just got the prompt. I clicked ok but it disappeared instead of downloading. Is this because I’m rooted? I really want that update

    • Wrigbone

      I’ve posted on here since last night about that. Same thing happened to me even though all I have is root with no custom rom. From what I’m reading around the net is that is prolly the case for us. Choice = unroot and get this crappy buggy thing or wait for a captured rooted version.

  • Justin

    Had to factory reset my Incredible after this update. Phone could not load HTC Sense and was unusable. Not too happy about that.

  • Nico

    Bit of a tangent, but my Eris is on its last legs and I want a GNex, but I don’t think I’ll quite make it.¬† If I get a Razr or Rezound now, and I use the new-every-two thing from Verizon, then later trade it back in for a GNex, would I still get the new-every-two discount?¬† Or can I just not use said discount the first time for the Razr/Rezound?

    • Ruel Smith

      Galaxy Nexus is just a couple of weeks away. You can’t hang on for just a couple more weeks? I’d try… Forget the Razr and Rezound.

      • Nico

        The trackball’s been fubar for months, it’s only a matter of time before it shorts out completely.¬† That, and it’s slow, awful, and I’m growing increasingly impatient since I’ve been wanting to upgrade to something since September.

  • Toddab7

    all the comments about issues caused me to pause before allowing the update. Should I do it?  Any tips on prep to minimize issues after the update?

    • Chris Dugger

      Move all you apps off the SD card before you update…. ¬†Once updated, you should be able to move them back without issue.

      • Toddab7

        Thanks for the tip Chris. 
        Would removing the SD card before updating then reinstall after do any good?

  • Ruel Smith

    This is why everyone should just go buy a Galaxy Nexus and show all the smartphone makers what you think of having to wait 11 months to get an OS upgrade from the time it’s dropped by Google. If all the Android users would get Nexus phones, maybe they’ll stop skinning the OS and pumping them full of garbage to get the OS on the phone much quicker.

    Personally, I think part of it is just a lack of desire to put resources onto the project. HTC, Motorola, Samsung and others really just want to sell new phones and have little interest in keeping up phones that have already been sold.

  • Anonymous

    I was updated to 2.3.4 this morning on my stock Incredible.  The phone did a restart and all of my apps were still on it without any major changes and nothing was lost.  I heard Gingerbread is a better system not needing a task manager.  Can anyone comment on that part of it?

      Froyo was the first Android update that didn’t need a task manager. This definitely doesn’t need one

    Two updates are rolling out right now.  The original (buggy) 4.0.6 update, and the new 4.0.8 that fixes the bugs from the original update.  If you never got the original Gingerbread update, you are getting prompted to go to the 4.0.6 buggy version.  If you were already on 4.0.6, you should get prompted to go to 4.0.8.  I just finally got updated to 4.0.6 this morning.  Time will tell how long it will be before I can get the 4.0.8 version that fixes all the bugs.  Market still says Sprint, but it appears I can at least get text messages.

    • Dave

    Verizon Incredible updated today to 2.3.4 build 4.08.605.3 (slightly newer than above!). Not surprised I had to update a few apps. No probs noticed so far. I also see Sprint tab in Market app on my unrooted verizon phone. Wife’s phone, same, although she received notification of new Data Usage widget (I have the widget, but didn’t get a notification).

      If you’re already S-OFF (which I’m assuming you are since you’re rooted), the 2.3.4 update isn’t gonna change that. And why don’t you just do your backups manually in recovery? ROM manager is known to be somewhat of a buggy POS (no disrespect to koush).

        i dont think i have S-OFF. thanks for the suggestion about trying it in recovery. ill try that. anyways i tried to install the verizon update and it sort of froze up on me so i rebooted and now it says it is up to date but still says 2.2 lol/

    Checked my wife’s total stock DINC, got no updates. Still on 2.2.

    Of course, she is just yelling at me right now to stop playing with her phone, so investigation will continue later.

    • Same, but with my sister’s.

    • Kirkdm92

      restart your phone and then check it should be there

      got mine last night – had to update gmail & gmaps but all else seems OK!!

      • Remymiller

        did you update gmail and gmaps before or after updateing

  • I checked my mom’s phone as soon as I saw this article and it had already downloaded the update and was wanting to restart to install it. Now that it’s finished, it’s gone from 2.2 to 2.3.4.

        Same here, except mine has been deactivated for months since picked up INC2 (use it as a PMP/alarm)….was suprised to get it, everything seems to run fine

  • hatethanet

    Geez, I wonder if HTC will be this slow to update the Rezound to ICS.

  • I checked in and now it’s downloading!

  • IntlGrizzly

    Why are there Nexus adds on this site?? That’s just a waste. We were already going to buy it anyway..

    I’ve had gingerbread for a few months

    Both of my HTC Incredibles rebooted at random yesterday for no reason. ¬†They also both froze up at the same time and FINALLY I got the update that was promised months ago. ¬†Kinda sucks because I’m probably going to get a Nexus next month. ¬†Oh well… can’t really complain at this point.

    • Orko

      I also got a very strange screen freeze and what appeared to be a random hard reboot yesterday. Then just now I got the prompt to update. Funny thing is, I need this phone for development, since its the only one that I have with Froyo on it. I’ll probably be able to update next week, which will give me some time to watch how smooth the update goes for everyone. ūüėČ

    I just got it.

    My wife “accidentally” ran over her DInc, now she rocks the Inc2 already got the GB update… its a great phone for being 3g… Now wheres the Nexus?¬†

  • Just turned on my Incredible to check for this update and there it is. Lets see what happens.¬†
    Now waiting for my official Thunderbolt update.

  • Sparking22

    My mom got the update a few months back that took her to 2.3 but its kinda buggy. so I hope this is a bug fixer

    Just updated Droid incredible non-rooted.  android version 2.3.4  Build number 4.06.605.3

      Hmmm…. I’ve been on this one for a while.

  • Thestuntman

    Stock Incredible running 2.2, just checked and no update available.

  • It’s legit I did the chekin thing went to system updates and its downloading now!¬†
    About damn time 

    • rosario

      Just checked, and system show updating “Android 2.3.4 Upgrade for HTC Incredible.”¬† I’m in California. The update shows, by the way, as 87.8 MB, not 8.6 MB.

      • Tim

        You’re getting the first GG update that was pulled and we are all hoping that this means that the smaller update will soon follow that fixes the issues with that build. A file size that small can only be a patch not a full blown update.

  • And this, ladies and¬†gentlemen, is why I will never buy anything other than a Nexus device from now on. ¬†I will not wait a year to get “updated” to an old version of Android.

    • Sparking22

      Now that verizon is getting a Nexus I plan to sell me Bionic for that afer Xmas ūüôā

      • Billyrouth2000

        I would 2 if the Nexus wasent made out of plastic.

        • Anonymous

          If you ever drop your phone, you’ll be glad it’s made out of plastic. Look at the drop tests comparing the GS2 to iPhone 4.¬†

          • Jarred Sutherland

            Don’t drop your phone …. or just wrap a case around it. I haven’t dropped a phone in over a year now.¬†

          • Gadgetskopf

            Oh, ho, now you’ve jinxed it…

          • Adam Wood

            Screw cases… If your phone can’t take it then¬†there’s¬†a problem. If your carrier won’t insure your phone, then¬†there’s¬†a problem.

    Comments will go as the following:

    Where’s the nexus!!!

    Where’s Gingerbread for my THUNDERBOLT!!!! ¬†HTC FAIL!

      gingerbread fot the TB has been out for almost 2 months. i got mine OTA in september and then got another small update last month.

      • Droidzzz

        I’m yet to get it and starting to become pissed now.¬† I had ample patience since¬†gingerbread was just going to let me try out a feature I’m not THAT anxious for (face to face chat support through skype and tango).¬† But now I’ve heard rumor that the new software improves battery performance and even if that’s untrue what the hellllllll.¬† This shit was supposed to be¬†finished up a lonnnng time ago and my patience has officially ran out.¬† Couple that in with the fact that the bass has gotten weird on my audio and conveniently HTC has announced their partnership with Beats by Dre (my own little conspiracy theory), HTC can kiss my ass goodbye when it comes time to upgrade. Not to mention they’ve had years to figure out this whole battery thing, yet continue to maintain their rep for smartphone manufacturer with worst battery life as a whole.¬†

  • Cool story bro.
    Still rocking my OG.
