    Had a update waiting for me when I got up this morning. Anyone else? Unfortunately I couldn't install it because I didn't have enough room. Best phone ever but I can't wait for my S3 to get here. Just wanted to know if anyone else received this.

    I just got the same message for a 4.08.605.15. Didn't do the upgrade yet.

    My husband updated his last night, and says that nothing looks different. His is still running 2.3.4
    While rebooting after the install process, it took probably 15 minutes, so be aware of that and don't jump the gun while it is loading or you may brick your phone. Just let it load in it's own sweet time to avoid any problems.

    It did help with Bluetooth , but, at least on this DInc , it added some glitchyness, can't tell if its the firmware or phones age. Come on SIII

    I assume if I update to .15 I will lose root?? Has anyone posted a rooted stock version of this update yet? I can't find anything on here or xda... (or I'm just blind)

    no notifications here. just checked thru system updates "your system is currently up to date"
     
  10. As poor as VZW is about getting updates out the door, I'm thoroughly surprised that the Inc is still getting updates!

    Just did the update, it's not ICS, just an update to some other software.

    Hope I don't end up with that reboot problem from that VZW forum.

    I got the same message and the install failed due to "insufficient disk space". I have 6GB left so that clearly isn't the problem. A co-worker was never able to install 2.3.4 for the same reason.

    Fortunately I have a Galaxy S 3 on order as my poor Inc as a ton of problems beyond this one.

    Not sure what's happened to mine, but it didn't like the update. After updating it said successful then it hung on the reboot and required me to pull the battery. After that reboot I got an error stating UUID's are inconsistent and it needed to wipe my data partition. I proceeded. My contacts and installed applications were gone. I did a google sync to get most of my contacts back, reloaded a few applications and thought all was good.

    When I try to open the Internet it crashes with a force close. This has occured all week since the update. This morning I pulled the battery again for a hard reset. Powered it up and got the UUID inconsistent error.

    I went by the Verizon store. The rep said this was the ICE update and it's crashed random phones due to incompatibility. Said I could have them do a hard wipe and reload of my OS but eventually the update will be forced and it will wipe me out again. He said my only option was a new phone?!???? Is this true?

    At this point my phone is working with the update EXCEPT internet which crashes with a Force Close error.

    I called VW tech support and they confirmed there were other reports of this crash with my symptoms and there is no fix right now.

    I got the notification, did the update a couple of days ago.

    Since then my phone has been randomly resetting/rebooting, usually in the wee hours of the morning. It started again last night while I was trying to go to sleep - from the other room I hear a loud "DROID!". When I tried to unlock the phone (swipe down) it reset/rebooted again. I did that twice before it finally came all the way up, at which point I powered it off so I could get to sleep. :hmpf:

    I'm not sure what I can do at this point. Is there any way to back the update out? Or will I have to root the phone and install cyanogenmod in order to get a stable phone again?

    Mine hung on reboot after update had to pull battery.
    Then all seemed fine,... wrong again.
    The phone held a charge for days before this, if unused, but always on.
    Now after the update I get about 10 hours of battery life if unused but left on.
    Thank you, mr. helper, for the update.

    This is what I found on the Verizon forums earlier this week. The link to the whole thread is in a post from me above.

    What you are expierencing is normal with the most recent software. After the most recent update the Droid Incredible will also receive an additional Memory Optimization component to the MR5 update that will begin between 2am-5am (your local time). You must let this additional update complete or it will continue to happen each late night/early morning until it completes. I recommend putting your phone on charge and silent mode so that it doesnt wake you up because it will reboot serveral times.

    I got the update this morning, went to install, rebooted then told me I didn't have enough space. HA

    If it isn't Ice Cream Sandwich, I didn't really want it anyway. :p

    I have an email in to HTC as both my local store and verizon online said it was an HTC push. At this point, my phone will randomly reboot, random apps continue to fail, and my internet won't function. Verizon has no answer but to buy a new phone. They said that a complete wipe and reload of the OS will only temporarily fix things (maybe, they said).

    I find this interesting that this happens to me the week of Verizons new everything shared plan offering. Its probably a conspiracy to get me off of my unlimited data plan since that is what is mainly wiped out on my phone now.

    From what I read, the update adds nothing of importance to me and is also risky to install. How do I get rid of the annoying update notification; it keeps coming back when I click "later"? Thanks.

    This is beginning to sound like Verizon pushed this update just to ruin our phones. What easier way to get us to move to a new phone or better yet to the new data plan.


    Sorry but my phone will stay full of space and I will continue to ignore this update prompt.
