Release Candidate 3 for CyanogenMod 7 has started rolling out to a variety of devices, including one of our family members, the DROID Incredible. If you head over to the CM release site, you’ll find RC3 for the DI, plus what appears to be a new nightly. Anyone already running this?
Yesterday we dropped news that the HTC Thunderbolt would be receiving Gingerbread (Android 2.3) some time in Q2 of this year, but many asked about its little brother, the DROID Incredible. Well, if we are to believe the email below, which is from another HTC rep, it looks like the DI will also see GB in Q2, but towards the end instead. (more…)
Notice anything odd about the screenshot above? Anything missing? Where did our friend the DROID Incredible sneak off to. We know he’s still hovering around Verizon’s main site with the discounted price of $99, but why has he been removed from DroidDoes.com? Normally we would just think that VZW was performing some sort of maintenance to the site, except that all of the Incredible-specific sub-pages also appear to be dead (like this one).
This is going to be the biggest stretching idea on the planet and I’m admitting that up front, but could this possibly have something to do with the Incredible 2? We know that the Incredible S is already on sale, way ahead of an initially scheduled launch over in Europe and is basically the same device, so what if the Inc2 is also ready? The phone is definitely in the hands of testers as images of the phone came out over the weekend looking as polished as ever. Again, I know this is a stretch, but we did hear back in January that it could be available in March. Any chance in hell that Verizon releases the Inc2 anywhere near the Thunderbolt?
Update: We are hearing that it could be gone for good. Device may have landed on the EOL (End of Life) list. If that’s truly the case, then R.I.P. DI. It will be tough for anyone to match your awesomeness.
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?

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.
An unmarked DROID Incredible made a quick appearance on The Office last night and we couldn’t let it go un-posted. If you jump to the 7:00 mark in the video below, you can see our family member in action from a gas station. (more…)
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…)
Another DROID phone lands in the news, only instead of blowing up in a man’s ear it actually saved a life. According to this news clip, a valet worker’s DROID Incredible stopped a bullet that was fired from a couple of angry club goers who had been kicked out for fighting. Seriously, stopped a bullet.
