    Droid Incredible Users: Look Out For Your OTA Upgrade Today

    by Quentyn Kennemer on July 16th, 2010


    A few days ago, one of our members at AndroidForums.com suggested that the rumored OTA update for the HTC Droid Incredible would land on July 16th with a few lucky users possibly getting in on a soft launch before then. While we had no reason to disbelieve the rumor, reports like these come in all the time so we didn’t report it.

    Droid-Life’s now reporting that they did receive the upgrade last night and that it includes all of the goodies we’d heard of before: 3G mobile hotspot features (pending your extra $20 per month going to Verizon), a new boot animation, and 720p HD video recording.

    Today could very well be the day, Incredible users. It’s not Froyo, but it’s a bigger leap than some other Android users have gotten in recent weeks.

    How will I know that my Incredible has been updated? I am not familiar with this process and want to know that to look for.

    Thanks!

    A update pop-up screen will show up on your phone, you can't mistake it. You'll know when you get it, it will prompt you to install it. That's it, the phone will do the update process.

    It would be pretty obvious. You'll get a message on your phone telling you that an update is available.

    The leak has been out for a couple days now. This will be an offical update. If rooted it is not recommended to update until futher review of the update.

    And still not sure of any reason to do so, even if I can, LOL

    All the reasons to root the incredible can be found here:
    Howto: Root the HTC Droid Incredible ? Technology ? Jonamerica.com

    I can tell you that my phone runs smoother, more battery life and some other cool things after root..

    I unplugged my phone at 8:30am and its about 3:30 now and battery is still at 86%. Removing bloatware and a better kernel has helped tremendously!

    I don't have cell reception where I am. Can I receive an update via WiFi if it does come out today?

    which rom are you using? is it stable? haven't decided which rom to use yet.

    so we'll be ask for confirmation for the update or will it do it for us? i just rooted 2 days ago so i kind'a want to keep it. although the 720p recording and other stuff might be ok. i just hope unrevoke can come thru again.
