HTC Incredible Android 2.3 Gingerbread now rolling out

September 2, 2011

I must say that was pretty fast HTC. Just a few short days ago they mentioned the Thunderbolt and Incredible would both get 2.3 Gingerbread in September. Now two or so days later it appears the Incredible is already getting the OTA update because it's hitting handsets right this minute. If you are confused, the update was started back on the 15th but was quickly delayed for a few bugs HTC or Verizon found.

A few days after the first OTA started rolling out it was halted for some fixes but now all systems are a go because its live again. This is the newest version coming from HTC and shouldn't have any issues or bugs the previous builds had. The last OTA was later leaked online but this official build is what you want.

For all the details regarding the official Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread update for the HTC Incredible feel free to stop by the Verizon support page. As always the update should hit handsets over the course of the next week and those that do not wish to wait can always manually update by going to Settings>About Phone>HTC Updates and then hit OK.

With this finally starting today does this mean the official update for the Thunderbolt is coming soon too?

    I received my update this morning.  While the update itself went smooth the update did seem to make most of my apps unavailable.  To be fair it seems like most of the unavailable apps were on the SD Card (but not all).  I have had to download them and reinstall them today which is a pain.  Also, some of my purchased apps are no longer compatible with my phone, NFS Shift and Tetris are two such examples.  Hopefully EA will update these and the other devs will update the others as I paid for these apps and now can’t use them.  Anyway, can’t seem to see much benefit out of the update but maybe I am wrong.

    Is this a fake post?  There is no “HTC Updates” option in Settings->About Phone … there is a “System updates” option, and it says I’m up to date with 2.2

    The latest reply johnt519 got when he questioned HTC directly was:
     
    While we certainly understand the need for the most updated software, unfortunately at this time we have no information available other than our official release which reads as follows:”It has come to the attention of Verizon Wireless and HTC that customers using the Droid Incredible by HTC have experienced a voicemail notification error with the recent software update. As a result, the update has been temporarily suspended while the companies work together to resolve the issue. Verizon Wireless and HTC anticipate the update being available soon; customers will be notified directly on their devices when it is ready for download.”

    Apparently, lots of bugs happened once it got out and they’ve stopped the updates. VZW is not trying hard enough. ;-(

    I just got the update tonight.  My phone is at 2.3.4.  It looks like Christmas came a little early this year.  Finally.

  • Jeddy S

    installed the 2.3.4 update today, and it seriously jacked my phone.  continuous low memory warnings, phone screen is blank, and error messages galore.  instead of going through another brain damaging hard reset process and wasted setup time (3rd time with this phone), i’m switching to iphone.
