Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread–It’s Incredible!

3 years ago 19

HTC Droid Incredible, that is. Gingerbread is the Android version to have, and manufacturers are continuously trying to get the latest OS on the newest devices. Some older devices are definitely capable of handling a Gingerbread update, though. Like the HTC Droid Incredible, one of the most loved devices Verizon has ever seen.

Droid Incredible users will be happy to know that dessert is served. Just when we thought this update would never show up, Verizon has posted the software update PDF files. The good ol’ Droid Incredible is actually getting Android 2.3.4, along with some other well-deserved fixes.

Update Fixes

  • MMS messages will now send correctly
  • Properly save audio files from MMS messages
  • Successfully play audio from MMS messages
  • Internet connection via Bluetooth now enabled
  • VZ Navigator now operates on Wifi
  • Change songs in the music widget by tapping the forward button
  • Camera now functions with an SD card inserted

This is great and all, but what you guys really want to know is when the OTA is scheduled to roll out. (You’ve been waiting enough!). While the dates are not specified on Verizon’s website, our friends at Android Central have gotten word that the update starts rolling out tomorrow, August 16. It seems only 10,000 users will be getting the update tomorrow, though. Another 50,000 updates will roll out Wednesday, and the rest of the users will get it on Friday.

There ya go! Our beloved Droid Incredible is getting Gingerbread after all. So you might be able to hold on to it for a while more. Time to start the Update Check chaos. Don’t forget to take a look at the Update details and the instructions from Verizon’s website.

What do you guys say? Well deserved, right? Will you be keeping that Droid Incredible longer, now that you’ll be getting Gingerbread?
