The last time we heard of the Gingerbread update for the “Dinc” was in Verizon’s leaked documentation displaying a 4.06.605.2 OTA update was ready to roll out but for unknown reasons, found itself delayed. Well, it’s been a long time coming but the official build of the Gingerbread update (as documented in the Verizon leak) for the HTC Droid Incredible has been leaked online and courtesy of AndroidPolice.
Besides the typical Android 2.3 Gingerbread features, users can also look forward to:
- MMS Messages send correctly
- Successfully play audio files from a message
- Send Vcard through SMS
- Internet connections via Bluetooth now enabled
- VZ Navigator now operates over Wi-Fi
- Change songs in the Music widget by tapping the forward button
- Camera functions successfully without inserting SD card
- Download this file (Mirror) (MD5: 096d841530dd2f223ef4a1b701c7d429)
- Rename the file to PB31IMG.zip
- Drop it on the root of the SD Card
- Boot into the bootloader
- Flash as usual
Keep in mind this is a full RUU so if you attempt to install this update, you will start completely from scratch erasing all apps and removing root (if you have it). Anyone going to make the jump and install this or will you continue waiting for Verizon to push it out OTA?
- Pebble Time Steel announced
- Galaxy Edge starts at 64GB?
- New Gear VR Demo
- Device encryption requirements lifted
