Official Gingerbread Update For Droid Incredible Available
Those that own the HTC Droid Incredible have been faced with quite a wait to get updated to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, something that was due to happen back at the beginning of the month but for some reason the Gingerbread update was pulled. However the word is the official Gingerbread build is now available online.
According to the guys over at Android Police, they have been given an exclusive leak of the official Gingerbread update for the HTC Droid Incredible courtesy of an unnamed tipster and have posted a link on their website so users can grab the Gingerbread goodness.
So other than the usual, here’s what the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update delivers to the HTC Droid Incredible…VZ navigator will now work over WiFi, the ability to send Vcard via SMS, MMS Messages now sent correctly, the ability to successfully play audio files from a message, Bluetooth Internet connection now enabled, tapping the forward button in the Music Widget will now change songs, and camera functions successfully without inserting the SD card.
Apparently the tipster has also updated the info saying that the file should be named PB31IMG.zip rather than PB32IMG.zip however the instructions have been altered to reflect the change.
Of course it goes without saying, although this is an official Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the HTC Droid Incredible should you download and install the update on your device you do so at your own risk and no one else can be held responsible if things should go wrong.
Furthermore this is a full RUU, which means it will fully wipe your Droid Incredible including all applications and any root you may have
So there you have it, for those interested you can hit up the website and grab the Gingerbread update, or of course you can still hang on until Verizon decides to push it out over the air.
