We’ve been talking about Gingerbread for the Droid Incredible and its on-again-off-again status quite a bit lately, but after the official support docs showed up on VZW’s site, we had confirmation of what we knew all along: the update is alive and kicking. It was rumored that it would start rolling out OTA-style earlier in the week but was delayed for unknown reasons, leaving Incredible owners without their cookie-filled upgrade just a little bit longer.
Fortunately, the wait is over, as we’ve received and exclusive leak of the Gingerbread RUU from a giving tipster. This looks like the final build, as it shares all the same version number from Verizon’s documentation (4.06.605.2), as well as the same baseband (2.15.10.07.07).
Before we get to the download, here is a quick reminder of what this update brings (aside from Gingerbread):
- MMS Messages send correctly
- Successfully play audio files from a message
- Send Vcard through SMS
- Internet connections via Bluetooth now enabled
- VZ Navigator now operates over Wi-Fi
- Change songs in the Music widget by tapping the forward button
- Camera functions successfully without inserting SD card
There is no word on whether or not this version can easily be rooted, but we’ve pinged a few people and will update as soon as we hear something back.
With that out of the way, I present to you : Gingerbread for the Droid Incredible!
