You own a Droid Incredible 2? Want to chow down on some Gingerbread with that bad boy? If so, then happy days are here… with a caveat. If you are now, or ever planing on rooting your DI2, then you might not want to flash this. You see, the guys at AlphaRevX have determined a way to unlock and root the Droid Incredible 2, but it only works on Froyo. If you flash this version of Gingerbread, you will be overwriting the only known method for root/unlock.
That being said, if you care nothing about rooting your phone, then this leak is for you. Instructions for upgrading your phone with the RUU file could not be easier:
- Download the RUU
- Plug your phone into your PC
- Run the RUU
And that’s it. It will take a few minutes for the program to work its magic, but once completed, you will have a completely stock DI2 running Gingerbread. Not too shabby, eh? Warning: doing this will erase everything on your phone. Your SD card will be fine though.
If you want root though, stay clear of this update. Give it some time. The guys at AlphaRevX are making great progress on their rooting efforts, so I imagine it won’t be real long before they have a flashable ROM based off of Gingerbread that you will be able to install via Clockwork Recovery.
