Droid Incredible: 2.3.4 Gingerbread update – Problems after download?

It is never a straight forward procedure when it comes to Android updates, and this is evident in the fact that a new Gingerbread update is apparently available for the HTC Droid Incredible, despite the fact that many users already updated their handsets in September.

We can tell you that this is actually a new build of Gingerbread, as the build released in September contained various bugs which HTC deemed sufficient enough to pull the update. For those that are still rocking Android 2.2 Froyo, you may want to head to your settings now and check to see if there’s an update available.

If there is, you should see the build number of 4.08.605.2 ready and waiting to download, with the install size reportedly coming in at just 6.7MB. Once updated, your Droid Incredible should be updated to version 2.3.4 of Gingerbread – so yeah, still not the latest version (2.3.5) which is pretty laughable when you think that the first Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 phone is due to hit Europe in a few days time.

Changes listed by HTC in the new update include improved Bluetooth functionality, a fix to the low memory message related to SMS, voice command fixes, tweaks to GPS and a fix regarding app loading problems when using an SD card. You can view Verizon’s update document here, courtesy of Droid-Life.

If you haven’t updated yet, try it out now and let us know how you get on. We’ve heard that some people have had problems mounting apps of the SD card, so check this aspect out specifically and report back to us with your findings. On a side note, what are your thoughts on HTC only issuing Gingerbread now for the Droid Incredible? Does it make you worried for future updates for handsets like the Rezound? This is one reason alone that many consumers will opt for the Galaxy Nexus since it will get all software updates first before any other Android handset.
