    Woke up this morning to the update screen. Nice way to start a Friday with a long weekend. Have not really noticed any difference with Froyo, except for all the little apps that Verizon has now forced on us. We shall see. Glad to have it done though.

    Got it this morning!!!! Wooohoooo. To those who say the update is not by location I find it hard to believe that since all the posts ahead of me are from the New England area and we all got it the same time.

    Random?

    I'm not 100% convinced that the update was completely random. I woke up this morning to the update. I checked my wife's phone and it had the update available. 3 other incredibles (2 on our business plan, 1 on their own personal plan) and all came into the office asking if they should click on the update. So, unless they just unleashed a large portion of the remaining updates this morning, there has got to be some rhyme and reason to how it was rolled out.

    WOOOOHOOOO!
    I just got it this morning!
    So far it's super awesome and I'm having fun just messing around with it. I love the new landscape, keyboard, and 720p video.

    I noticed a stronger WiFi signal in the office. Also faster touch screen and overall response. Also voice search is 100 times better

    WiFi is definitely better for me, too. I installed a repeater in my house since the wireless router is on one end of the house and I would hardly get a signal at the other end. It worked great with the iphones and my computers, but it seemed like once my dinc got to where the repeater signal was stronger than the base unit, the wireless would crap out. I would have to go back to where the base was, and stop and start the dinc's wifi. Don't have that problem now.

    Rooted Incredible, getting OTA update message

    I've got a rooted incredible (no custom roms, just root access and wireless tether), and just started receiving the Verizon OTA froyo 2.2 update message. Do I need to restore my phone to unrooted status before attempting the update, or can I just install the update? Thanks!

    the update will fail if you have clockwork running. thats what happened to me and my friend, and seems to be the consensus here, even though no one will tell you...had to ask plenty of times.

    considering using a custom mod now that ive heard bad things about the stock update, what with bloatware and battery drainage and whatnot

    Actually my teacher just got it the day before August 26 (the notification for it anyways) but has yet to install it.
