    I unrooted the other day.. problems with my rom and i managed to do something while rooted, so i flashed 2.2 back on it...

    But I plan on trying it out, see if I like it.. Then ill decide if I wanna reroot...

    I hope its at least sense 2.0, but I have my doubts...
    If no, then if I do reroot, its Sense 3.0 for me.. :)

    Though he may have managed to throw the train off the tracks, we got it back on... But again, I'll still take any info, its better than nothing at all..?

    Well I've never rooted but am planning on it after I check out the official and we get some good Roms based off of it.

    Really want to see newer versions of sense

    If you're rooted, but running stock Froyo, do you have to unroot to receive the official update?

    Correct. You will lose root.

    I plan on trying it just to see what version of sense we get. If it isn't 2.x I will be running a Rom. either way I plan on having root to remove bloatware.

    I have been following this thread for a while and the only thing I care about is the Baseband that could come from an official release of Gingerbread for the Dinc. If the Radio brings even better reception than the one I am using then I will flash it. Other than that, I don't care to bash anyone or anything; including the mysterious Evan. Who cares what he says. Seriously...I rock Gingerbread every day. The forum is about having the ultimate Android Experience, not some OTA the devs will debloat anyway.

    Daps to my man Blackbelt.

    No, he didn't give a confirmed date. What he did was;

    -predict every Monday (except the 4th of July), because those are the days VZW traditionally rolls out an update
    -He was wrong the first 2 weeks, the 4th of July was the third week, then he was "right" on the 4th week, but wrong phone.
    -He never claimed that the update was for the Incredible 2, even gave us the build number of the original Incredible (after we gave it to him)

    It makes sense for him to predict 8/8 as the next update day. If it would be 8/1, the PDF would already be on the VZW website. The Incredible is one of the next phones in VZW's que, so 8/8 makes sense. If it doesn't land, he can make up a delay and predict the 15th or 22nd.

    So, please don't get sucked in by this guy. He's not an insider and has refused every request to vet him.

    After the Evo 4G lost root with their update, I won't be even.considering the update. I will wait for the devs to port.it. I am going to try out boot manager so I can play with Nils Sense 3.0.

    With bootmanager I most likely run with 4 gingerbread Tom's. 2 sense. 2 asop.

    No.matter what you think about Evan, you have to.love the tenacity.

    Agreed. As shown by the post I quoted, he has people that believe him, so he's attained his goal.

    It will be interesting to see his post on the Monday the Inc update actually rolls out.

    "See guys; I told you the update was coming! Now you all know I really DO work for Verizon!"

    :rolleyes:

    I just rooted so I think even if it does roll out I'm going to stay right where I am for a while.

    Is the international man of mystery predicting the version of Sense?
    How about new bloatware predictions?

    My money is on rabid dingo attacks on the 8th.

    I just switched to Nils sense 3.0, the rotating 3D screen is pretty cool. Seems similar to the business sense otherwise.

    I will miss this thread if he is right. After many long days at work I would come home and see all of the madness in this thread. It always makes me giggle like a little school girl... I mean boy.

    BTW, Post 1000!!.. (for the thread, not me personally)

    I like Evan and think he is sincere. I hope he is right. However, I am already rooted and am happily running CM7, so it doesn't really matter to me....

    Hello this is Evan from Verizon Wireless NRB,

    There needs to be some clarification about the Incredible 2. The general public and some of the members here have no knowledge on how the OS is developed on these devices. When the Incredible 2 was under development 2.1 was still the most popular android OS and was used as a base OS during hardware testing. Eventually it moved to 2.2 Froyo and was finally released with 2.2 Froyo at launch.

    Yes, there were plenty of Incredible 2 test/development units at Verizon that still ran 2.1 and the small issue needed to be resolved before 2.3 was deployed.

    I can understand the general publics reasoning that the Incredible 2 never had 2.1 installed since it launched with 2.2 Froyo. But this reasoning is simply incorrect.

    I can buy that. Now what about build date as you have been asked. You have said you can get it. Please do.

    I have not rooted yet either. Since the GB update is supposed to be the last update for the original Incredible, I will probably root after this update comes out.

    That was what I was thinking BUT then I realized that I could root now, play for however long and then when I get bored I can go to GB and start again.
