When it comes to updates, we all know that those have been a plague on Android devices. Some might get there eventually, but that’s not much of a promise considering that you are coughing up quite a lot of cash to see your device get left behind in the update arms race. However, there is always the custom ROM alternative, yet this time around we are dealing with the real deal. The HTC Droid Incredible is finally getting its Android 2.3 Gingerbread update going and the fine folk over at Android Central set up a quick guide for the manual download of the update.
After the first announcement according to which the manufacturer won’t release the HTC Droid Incredible Android 2.3 Gingerbread update and the later announcement according to which the Droid Incredible will enjoy the Gingerbread goodness after all, we finally got it out and running!
The HTC Droid Incredible Android 2.3 Gingerbread update brings a ton of improvements. The main aspect is that MMS messages are now sent correctly, you can also properly save the audio files which you’ve received through MMS messages and you can now successfully play the audio files received in the shape and form of MMS messages. All of these have been issues which have been plaguing some users out there, so it’s good to see that HTC did something about it.
You also get internet connection via Bluetooth with the Droid Incredible Gingerbread update, VZ Navigator now operates on Wi-Fi and you can change songs in the music widget by simply tapping the forward button. For those media fans out there, the camera on the Droid Incredible now works even with an SD card inserted. Note that the manual instructions are out and about in case you’re tired of waiting for your OTA wave, but make sure to follow them by the letter as you might find yourself in a position in which you can get the update to work!
