CyanogenMod 7 Release Candidate 2 Available, DROID Incredible Included

A new batch of CyanogenMod 7 release candidates went out last night, including one for our brother the DROID Incredible.  Should you choose to accept your mission of flashing this latest CM build, your Dinc will be running the most current version of Android that is available, 2.3.3.  I’d try to highlight bits of the changelog, but it’s extensive.  I did notice a “Customizable app launcher on rotary lockscreen” which I’m dying to see and am hoping it’s a lot more stable than that GOTO Lockscreen was.

And once you are running this, remember that you can start playing with Google Music syncing to the mysterious cloud.  Anyone already running this new CM?

Head over to the CM Incredible forums for download links.

Cheers kly412!

DROID Incredible Sees CM7 Release Candidate

Anyone with a DROID Incredible feel like running Android 2.3.2 (Gingerbread)?  Then you may want to check out the CyanogenMod 7 Release Candidate that appears to have been released yesterday.  As you all know, the CM team works ridiculously hard to bring you the newest versions of Android long before you’ll ever see them from a carrier or manufacturer.  And remember, this is as stock as it gets.

Full support and download links at the CM forums.  Changelog.

Cheers kly412!

Video: DROID Incredible Gets a Taste of Honeycomb

Yep, someone actually took the Honeycomb SDK preview and ported it over to one of our family members, the DROID Incredible.  Obviously nothing works here, but the idea of it is just too much to pass up on.  You really won’t see anything special out of this as the Honeycomb launcher will not work correctly, so just take this as us giving the developer community a thumbs up for being awesome.  Can’t wait until next Wednesday when we’re hoping the full SDK will be released.     (more…)

Unrevoked Updated to Version 3.3, Includes Support for SLCD DROID Incredible

The unrevoked team announced over the weekend that their epic recovery unlocking tool now supports SLCD screened Droid Incredibles.  Basically, anyone with an Incredible should be covered in the rooting department, which means you have no excuse to not give MIUI a try at this point.  Oh, they also tweaked/switched the exploit for gaining root and appear to no longer be using rageagainstthecage.  If you don’t know what that is, just ignore it, but if you do, please take a second out of your day to provide a moment of silence for one of our Android heros.

DROID Incredible Owners Receive One of the First Really Polished Gingerbread ROMs

Good news for Droid Incredible owners, you may have the first-almost-fully functional Gingerbread ROM thanks to r2DoesInc over at XDA Forums.  As of late last night, the newest build fixed almost everything that would cause you to not use it except for video recording and a working GPS.  Other than that though, the browser now works fine, the camera snaps shots, and things like multi-touch have all been polished up.

This seriously is ready for a full test drive from our crew of DI owners.

Find full support and the newest download links at this thread.  Video action after the break.   (more…)

New DROID Incredible Kernel Allows 10-point Multi-touch

Anyone been looking for the ability to have all 10 fingers on their Droid Incredible at the same time?  Your prayers have been answered, thanks to XDA member tchebb who has created a new kernel which unlocks 10-point multi-touch.  He’s been running it for over a month now without any issues and admits that it gets a little wishy-washy above 5 touches, but that all 10 will work.  Fun stuff.

Download can be found at this thread.  Flash the file in recovery just like you would any other ROM.

Gingerbread SDK ROMs Start Popping up, DROID Incredible Included

The Gingerbread SDK was released on Monday morning and ROM developers have jumped all over it to create packages of Android 2.3 for a bevy of devices.  The Droid Incredible is one of them and you can jump all over it at this XDA thread. You should be warned a little though.  While an SDK built ROM shows the true awesomeness of a developer, most aren’t meant for prime time and mass consumption.  As you’ll notice at almost every single Gingerbread SDK ROM thread, a handful of critically important functions usually won’t be working correctly.  Feel free to flash them to your phone, just know that these aren’t ready to be your daily ROM.  We’ll be waiting for the actual source for that.  Please don’t hammer on the devs because certain things aren’t up to your normal ROM standards.

Full list of SDK ROMs here.
