Droid Incredible Gingerbread

You didn't really think the Droid Incredible would be left to languish with Froyo, did you, folks? (You certainly shouldn't, because HTC's said Gingerbread's coming. And to that end, a leaked Gingerbread ROM (Android 2.3.3) has made its way out of everybody's favorite Chinese ROM dumping ground and packaged up into flashable form.

If you're hoping for the latest and greatest version of Sense, well, you're going to be disappointed. But that's also why we keep telling you not to expect it. It ain't gonna happen.

Test Gingerbread ROM leaks out for the original Droid Incredible

25 Comments

Any estimates of when Verizon is going to release the official version? I don't wanna root my phone. =) And the Incredible isn't getting the new Sense? /sadface

This is great news. Another leaked version of Gingerbread for another great phone. It's starting to get comical how there are no official releases for GB but 5 or 6 leaks are floating around.

Screenoff animation isn't there, but internet calling is (at least in this build) It took me a couple of tries to get it up and running, but it finally is now. Seems stable, but we'll see.

I don't see why the incredible can't have a newer version of Sense. It has so much internal memory, it can at least get Sense 2.1

Oh it will. It won't be long now till we'll have Sense 2.+ GingerSense ROMs all over the place. :) Root Rocks!

*looks up from Cyanogenmodized Dinc* That's nice. Maybe now Team Cyanogenmod can finally get they're hands on the drivers for 720p video recording. I'm no fan of sense and I have no interest in Gingersense or the official update but I know there are plenty of people who do, so I;m glad those people will be finally getting Gingerbread.

Could we please get a leaked Gingerbread ROM for the EVO? Hell no. Not till the EVO 3D comes out. We wouldn't want people to not buy an EVO 3D because a Gingerbread update on their EVO is "good enough". LOL!!

EEEK. I probably wouldn't have missed that on that date if I wasn't having to fire the drummer in my band and cancel gigs without having to strangle him. Thanks for the info.

I'm almost positive the screen off animation is only for the nexus devices. Every gingerbread build I've seen doesn't have the screen off animation except cm7.

Probably they did it like this because the phone is at it's EOL (end of life). This is a quick and dirty way to get the phone up to date without putting to much work in it. Not a bad thing at all.

There's gotta be a point where the bitching ends. People want 2.3, HTC gives it. But now people want the newer Sense....?

Can you post a link for this rom?? I've been trying to find a Sense 3.0 rom for my Droid Incredible but yet to find one..
