Why does Froyo look like the 2.1 interface on the Evo?
So I was all excited for my buddy to get his Froyo update (I'm the sad owner of the long-forgotten Incredible), he finally got his OTA and showed me this morning.
It doesn't look right at all. It looks like the default sense interface, none of the 2.2 icons are on the bottom of the screen, it doesn't seem that anything has changed at all. I checked his settings and about phone to verify that the version was indeed 2.2, low and behold it was.
So what's the deal? Is this normal? Did Evo get some dumbed down version of the Froyo update or am I missing something here?

My buddy rooted his incredible (which has sense), put Froyo on it, and the launcher looks like the default Froyo we have all been salivating over. This is why I was confused when I saw the Evo launcher hadn't changed.
I guess maybe the Incredible ditched the Sense UI in the unofficial Froyo release due to the whole root thing?

Once the official update drops for the Incredible it will look just like the Evo. Again because it's a HTC device and they run Sense UI over Android. It will always be there, unless you root to a Vanilla Froyo or use another launcher with icon change.

Hey guys. Once the OTA hits for the Incredible, will the updates only work when running Sense? I'm on LauncherPro right now, and as far as I know, Froyo Sense doesn't let you stack 5 apps vertically and without titles, or place 5 shortcuts on the launch bar (I could be wrong about that, I've been doing the best research I can without asking questions but I'm still coming up short.), which I can't really go without now. I just love it too much. Basically, once updated, can I still use LauncherPro and get most of the benefits from 2.2? And will flash and the faster browser speed work on xScope or Dolphin, or only with the stock browser?
