    So...I was looking at the mainpage of phandroid.com, and under their article for manually updating the N1 to 2.2, under the comments section, comment 104: "I tried this on my HTC Incredible and now I have 2.2 on my INCREDIBLE !!! And its working GREAT !!!!! WHOOO HOOOO !!"

    How is this possible? Does anyone believe there is any credibility to this? If I was to try the same process for putting 2.2 on my incredible as the website states is for the N1, will it have any negative effects on my phone?? Any comments would be appreciated, but please no flaming :eek:

    You can't modify system files. We don't have root.

    It's not possible. End of story.

    TROLLED Lets run down reasons not

    1) looking at update, it checks for a specific build of the n1 rom, not the incredible
    2) GSM not cdma
    3) n1 specific radio, would probably brick incredible
    4) Incredible is a HTC/Verizon phone, dont expect any quick working updates.
    5) PIX or GTFO

    I tried it and the update failed. The signature is for the nexus one and not the dinc. The phone rebooted, no harm no foul.
