We have heard our fair share about the HTC Incredible over the past week. Earlier in the month we heard the Incredible would not be lucky enough to receive an update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread but that was quickly found to be untrue. Someone from support was wrong on that because not only was it indeed getting the update, but it was almost ready to begin rolling out already.

New details are showing the update was again delayed and not available but I have good news for you Incredible owners. It appears the official version being rolled out by Verizon and HTC has been leaked. The exact version listed right on Verizon’s website seen here has now leaked and we have it available for download for those who don’t want to wait.

This looks like the final build right from HTC, it shares the same version number from Verizon’s documentation (4.06.605.2), and the same baseband ( too. This is the full RUU leak so users will be required to wipe their data in order to flash the update. Without much talking, enjoy that Gingerbread you Incredible owners.

Installation Instructions:

Download this file (MD5: 096d841530dd2f223ef4a1b701c7d429)
Rename the file to PB31IMG.zip
Drop it to the root of the SD Card
Boot into the bootloader
Flash as usual

Be sure to remember that you assume all risk involved in flashing these leaked files. Do this at your own will and we hold no responsibility for your actions. As always I’d perform a nandroid backup as well as backing up all user data and settings before doing a wipe just to be safe — I always do.

  1. Successfully installed with no surprises. Basic look and feel remains the same. Biggest change is with cursor and cut-n-paste controls (much improved).

  2. I received the update automatically.  It ruined my phone (Incredible).  Some programs won’t run now.  Others disapeared.  The interface is not as asthetic as the original.  And now there is some sort of code that displays in a small window in the lower portion of the screen which sometimes won’t go away and prevents me from pressing the icons behind it.  Someone PLEASE tell me how to revert back to the original version.  Verizon’s customer no service said to either live with it or pay to upgrade to a newer phone.  Thanks alot, Verizon, that’s about what i expected.
