****** If you brick your phone it’s not my fault and I can’t help you!!!
…just needs to be said. 🙂 ******
Special thanks to all the people who’s sites I used to get this put together!
All I have to say is, “WOW! Android 2.2 (Froyo) with Flash 10.1 on the HTC Droid Incredible is now truly INCREDIBLE!” I could go on, but I’ll just let you get started and you’ll find out all the cool stuff about it soon enough!
Final setup consists of the following:
- Sky Raider 2.5.2 with Flash 10.1 and HTC’s Sense UI
- Titanium Backup with BusyBox
So August 18th came and went and I, just like thousands of others, was disappointed that there was no Android 2.2 (Froyo) love for the HTC Droid Incredible! I was holding out since I didn’t really want to root my phone if an official update was available (I had never rooted an Android phone before…but that wasn’t going to stop me ;)). However, since HTC had recently released the source code for Froyo for the HTC EVO 4G and the Droid Incredible I figured that by now someone should have something cooked up from it for the Incredible. So, I started digging and I found everything I needed to get a pretty bug free version of Froyo with Flash 10.1 up and running on my Droid Incredible. Here’s a brief overview of what I needed to do in order to get it all setup (with links to where I got my info):
- Update the radio baseband (info here and here)
- Root my phone using unrevoked3 (info here)
- Do a nandroid backup
- Unlock NAND using unrevoked forever (info here and here)
- Install backup software (Titanium Backup (please donate) and BusyBox)
- Backup everything up
- Wipe everything
- Install Sky Raider 2.5.2 with Flash 10.1 and HTC’s Sense UI (info here)
- Restore apps/settings and extra stuff
Even though I did do some research before starting this, I did run into a couple quirks that took me a little extra time to figure out. Or, maybe I was just a little too anxious to get this done so I could enjoy it. 🙂 Anyway, I’ve tried to put together instructions that are pretty easy to follow and all in one place. Hopefully you can get your phone rooted and running Andorid 2.2 (Froyo), with Flash 10.1 in no time. I would recommend reading through everything first though, just to make sure you understand what’s going on. After I put this together I ran through it, using my phone, a couple times and it worked without any problems. Hopefully it goes well for you too! Enjoy!
