Droid Incredible: Android 2.2 Froyo Update – Manual and OTA

Despite the fact that Verizon informed customers that the Droid Incredible update to Android 2.2 would roll out on Friday, we are still hearing reports that a lot of you are still yet to receive the notification OTA.

If this is the case, then you should be aware that a manual update is also available to you. Simply head to your phone’s settings page and then to, About Phone > System Updates.

You should see the update to Froyo available, which is 93.7MB in size. In case you didn’t know, Froyo will bring Flash Player 10.1, faster WiFi, Mobile hotspot capabilities and 720p Video recording to the Droid Incredible.

It is now Sunday evening – Have you received the update for your handset, or are you still waiting? If you are still waiting, don’t worry too much, as Verizon normally take a week or so for the OTA updates to rollout gradually.

Didn't know anything about this until all my text messages (some with info needed for pending legal battle) disappeared 2 days ago. When i contacted Verizon they casually told me about the update and that there "had been some problems" with it. Can't keep the thing charged for more than a few hours at a time if I'm using it, which is kinda the point of having a phone that "does everything", I thought. NOT a fan.

I would agree that the updated has made mine lag and eats the battery. Skype and VZ Navigator are now permanently installed and run all the time. I have tried to delete them and it's not an option, so I am constantly shutting them off. And yes, I have also lost contacts from my Google contact list! I find I have many more notifications, etc than I used to – even though I set them to the minimum. Overall I am concerned – these problems did NOT exist before.

I got my update for my incredible about a week ago. I was playing around with the phone & it popped up saying to update.

I got mine and its terrible.. it now installed new apps that you can not uninstall and they run constantly killing my battery. I have tried everything (changing my task killer settings etc).. I wish I could go back and not do the upgrade 🙁

Some phones are allowing you to manually update. Mine isn't one of them. One of my end users just walked in here and manually updated his from the settings menu.

Not here in Michigan as of 8-31-2010 at 1 PM, But I wonder if it depends on what version you have now, my phone says version 2.1 update, so its fairly new, maybe they are doing older phones first

Still nothing in Oregon, and it is sad to say….the people who already got froyo are probably the ones who dont even know what it is and/or care about it, they would have been just dumb and happy to live with 2.1 and here we all are holding on to the edge of our seats, biting our nails, they need to just put up a download link on verizon's site, you log in with your verizon account and download… vua'la! But apparently they werent quite planned out for this….

Everyone who bitching is retarded… CLICK the "manual update" link. It brings you to a page that LINKS YOU TO a downloadable ROM that you push on to your phone… MANUALLY…

Alan Ng just needs to word his articles, so that people who didn't pass High School English could understand it without the use of a purple crayon.

He is clearly wrong about being able to manually update. But I looked on the Verizon Wireless website. The Droid Incredible is being offered there with Android 2.2. It says 2.2 right there next to Google Experience.

Hopefully this update will improve the overall speed/performance of the D.inc.

Still waiting on the update

The method posted only works if your phone has already received the update and you didn't upgrade it right away for whatever reason. Also to everyone posting locations, it doesn't appear to be region based since my co-worker got his on Friday and I'm still waiting on mine. Nothing to do but wait…. 2.2 is not THAT big of a difference anyways ;).

It has nothing to do with location. But I have noticed that some of the biggest assholes and the dumbest people use dinc.

You can’t manually update the incredible. Who are these freakin people that post this crap. If you don’t know anything about this phone then shut the crap up. Please…

verizon said that they're gonna sent to 10,000 phones 2.2 froyo at a time. so it might take a while why froyo gets to your phone.

Same here, no update yet, and I also know that the About>Phone manual update does not work. True, the incorrect information shouldn’t have been reported, but that’s no reason for people to be nasty about it.

Dumb ass. it doesn’t work like that. the only way to manually update is to download from a pc, if the build is floating around. do your research before coming up with these “facts.”

A month ago I convinced my gf to switch plans and buy the Incredible.

Guess what? Friday night she got the update… now it is Sunday night and I am still waiting!!! Aaaaaaaaagh!

The only way to get your update is either from a Verizon push or from the Rom Upgrade Utility (RUU).

Settings> About Phone>System Upgrade> Froyo ….. FAIL!!

That statement is completely wrong. There is no way to manually update. Even though everyone else says it too, I felt the need to post it because it is just so incredibly incorrect.

Alan Ng are you for real? The only way to update your Dinc. is when Verizon lets you, in other word when they feel like sending you the update OTA. you can not update or find the update under About Phone > System Updates.

Stop giving people false hope.

Nick
