    After having Skyraider and not having to deal with bloatware, I'm not sure I could go back to official software. I'll wait until somebody makes a ROM out of it.

    Looks like the 2.15 radio is in there. Good, there's one less thing I have to do. :D

    I'm gonna wait for a Rom also though. Not sure how to extract the radio and I'm not flashing it again needlessly.

    Yeah, I'm perfectly happy with SkyRaider. I don't deal with bloatware at all. The only ROM I'm waiting for is CM6 that is actually stable. Other than that, SR looks better than this, for now!

    This is an RUU, which means that it's the first leak that you don't have to be rooted to install and the first leaked ROM to include the updated radio.

    A very good sign that they MIGHT be in the final testing phases of the Offical OTA.

    Just run the RUU. But be careful, if it's not the official OTA you might be stuck. Or root and you're safe. Or wait and be really safe.

    I think it blows past the radio update if you already have 2.15.

    How to: Update your DROID Incredible to Leaked Android 2.2 | Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog
    nice simple step by step for doing this... I am not doing it personally since its not deodexed and I love my battery meter and theme and dont really see what majorly can be improved upon from my third wave set up... I will end up flashing it once adryn deodexes it and I can have my themes work

    i'm DL the files just incase the chefs reccomend the updated version of Hboot ... the radio and everything else are the same just newer software version

    Be aware everyone: it is now CONFIRMED that the the OTA will be released starting TOMORROW. This from emails to users and screen shot of internal Verizon documentation posted in threads in the Incredible forum.

    Looks like this leaked RUU is the OFFICIAL update.

    But Iowa I think we have to, or should update certain things first like hboot. A rom won't cover that.

    Not that I'm going to do it, but great link iowa. I can't flash another Rom for a few days. My wife cut me off, says I have to go back to work.


    Yeah right. Fat ****ing chance with all this action going on.

    Could be wrong but I don't think we need to worry about hboot version unless we WANT to upgrade it separately for some reason. I see no reason rmk's won't work with 0.77 as it's just a 2.2 Rom similar to what we've been running.

    Yea I am just trying to prevent future conflict.

    Nice to know it's updated if that is the proper thing to do that is all. But I guess you could always flash the ruu or hboot anytime and just nandroid back to whatever rom you want so I guess it's not important to do it now.
