Download Leaked Android 2.2 Froyo with Sense For HTC Droid Incredible

By Sidharth | Features

Droid incredible made its way into the market from the Taiwan-based handset vendor HTC Corporation with Google’s Android 2.1 platform. So far the smartphone lives upto its expectation with a snappier and overpowered response UI. And xda-developers wants to take this to the new level by leaking out instructions on how to upgrade HTC Droid Incredible to Android 2.2 Froyo.

Although the rumors flying around the web is that HTC droid incredible — along with droid and droid X — will have an official Android 2.2 a.k.a Froyo update on August 6th.

However, if you’d still like to fiddle with your HTC Droid Incredible and run the Stock 2.2 ROM with Sense then check out the threat posted at XDA-developers.

I’ve recreated the steps here with all the download links, you can follow the thread for user updates and troubleshooting. Also, once the device is up and running using this tutorial, droid will have a smooth flow of Camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and the rest.

Performing this with 2.x radios means: 720p recording, flash on camcorder, HTC Flashlight, 3G mobile hotspot, FM Radio widget, Gmail with Copy & Paste, and a nice range of other addition (to check the radio navigate to Settings > About phone > Software information > Baseband version).

Note that Wiimote app doesn’t work after updating droid incredible to Android 2.2 Froyo.

How to flash the 2.x radio.
