The well loved Android Open Kang Project has been brought to the original DROID Incredible. Built from the latest Google offering, Android 4.0.3, AOKP brings the greatest in customization options that the rooting world has to offer. We have covered AOKP in some of our previous Custom ROM Friday posts which you can see here. For rooted and unlocked Incredibles, flashing is as easy as one, two, three. (more…)
Doin’ big things. After giving the Incredible 2, Rezound and Thunderbolt access to their bootloader unlocking tool, HTC has gone way back in time, giving the original Incredible the same access. That’s right, a device pre-DROID X and DROID 2 now has an unlockable bootloader.
And again, we turn to you, Motorola.
Two of HTC’s newest phones – the Bass (Runnymede) and Rhyme (Bliss) – have been fondled for long enough by the Android developer community to release ROM ports from each. Since both of these unreleased phones run HTC Sense 3.5 (full walk-through), owners of the original Incredible or Incredible 2 get to be some of the first to give it a spin. The Runnymede Sense 3.5 is the newest and truest to form, but the Bliss builds will likely have a lot less bugs since devs have had more time with them.

It was only a matter of time, right? Last week we saw a version of HTC’s Sense 3.5 ported over to the Desire, so forming a team to work on bringing it to the DROID Incredible just seemed like a logical next step. And after looking at these screenshots, you can see that the team has made some progress by getting it booted and then fixing a ton of initial bugs in just a short few days. You won’t find a test build to flash at this time, so try as best as you can to remain patient. The 13-man team is working hard to get this out to the masses as soon as possible. (more…)
When the HTC EVO 3D was announced as running Sense 3.0, there were a few of us with Thunderbolts and Incredibles that were possibly a little jealous. That new lock screen was just too sexy to not envy, plus we love that the notification bar has built-in toggles for WiFi, Bluetooth, etc. Well, guess what? Some of our fine friends in the ROM game have already popped out fully-working Sense 3.0 Gingerbread ports for you to try out. Actually, I shouldn’t say “try out” since almost everything seems to be working on them and would easily hold up as your daily driver.

1. Download the ROM that fits your device and drop it on your SD card.
2. Boot into Clockwork Recovery and backup your current settings.
3. Then perform a factory reset/full wipe.
4. Load up the .zip of the ROM that you downloaded above.
Thanks to XDA member Tmartin03, the Gingerbread (Android 2.3) leak for the DROID Incredible that popped up this morning is zipped up and ready for flashing. From what I can tell, everything works including the camera. And I apologize if I’m behind in Incredible updates, but FastBoot appears to now be available and 720p video recording is back(?). It’s still old Sense and doesn’t have switchable skins or anything, but it will bring you up to Android 2.3.3. (more…)
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.
Just two weeks in after the official release of CM7 and we’ve got an update that fixes some of the bugs you may have encountered. It also is the first official “stable” version of 7.0 that we’ve seen for the original DROID. Nice work guys. Now, if only everyone in this business would act this fast on bug fixes…
Cheers Keith and blackcatroad!
