    Update: I had trouble after downloading with my phone not wanting to reboot. I cancelled the install, downloaded the update myself, renamed the file update.zip and placed it in the root of my SD card and flashed using hboot.

    Update from .2 to .3 was successful.

    Directions for manually downloading and flashing the Stock Gingerbread OTA for the Droid Incredible

    [INFO]Many thanks goes to Muddyml for finding the OTA URL.[/INFO]

    [WARN]Failure to follow instructions may result in consequences you do not want to deal with. Please follow all instructions in order and completely. We will all try to help if you are having problems, but most problems can be avoided if you follow the instructions carefully![/WARN]


    Preparation:
    For Windows users there is some prep work we need to do so that everyone is on the same page. These directions will work for XP, Vista and Windows 7.

    Step 1: Set Always show menus, Un-hide known file types and display hidden files.
    1. Click on Start -> Control panel -> Folder Options
    2. The Folder properties box will display. Then select the View tab in the properties box.
    3. The second option under Files and Folders should be “Always show menus.” Select this box. (Not necessary for XP users)
    4. Near the bottom of the options box you will see “Hide extensions for known file types,” if there is a check mark there, uncheck this option.
    5. Just above “Hide extensions for known file types there is an option to “Show hidden files and folders.” Select Show Hidden files and folders.
    6. Click OK. When we are done, you can go back and put these settings back if you like.



    Step 2: Make sure your SD Card is formatted as FAT32.
    1. Connect your phone to your PC and choose Disk mode.
    2. When your SD card connects as a drive, open My Computer; Right click on the Drive for your SD Card and select Properties.
    3. A window will pop up that will show you the Format type for the drive. If it says FAT32 you are OK, if not, continue.
    4. Right click on your Desktop and create a new directory; name it SDBackup
    5. In the My Computer window, open your SD Card directory
    6. Click on the Edit menu of the SD Card directory and click “Select all”
    7. Click on the Edit menu of the SD Card directory and select Copy. Then minimize the SD Card directory.
    8. Open the SDBackup directory you made on the Desktop and click anywhere inside the white file listing area of the box.
    9. Click on the Edit menu of the SDBackup Directory and select “Paste.” This will copy the contents of your SD Card to your PC.
    10. When the copy is complete, close all open windows.
    11. Open My Computer and Right click on your SD Card Drive and select “Format.”

      [WARN]WARNING: This will format your SD Card and will erase all data on the card. Be sure you completed the backup steps above[/WARN]
    12. In the Format Removable Disk Property Box, select “FAT32” as the File System.
    13. Click Start. You may be prompted with warnings about formatting erasing all data, click OK and continue until the format is complete.
    14. Now copy your data from the SDBackup directory on your desktop to your SD Card using the same procedure outlined in steps E –I in reverse.

    Step 3: Backup your data
    1. Download a file manager program from the market, there are many available and most are free, if you want to copy your data on the phone. Or you can connect your phone to your PC. One of the drives that will appear is your SD Card the other is you Internal Storage. You can use your PC to copy and paste data from one drive to another.
    2. Under the /emcc directory you will find a DCIM folder copy the DCIM folder to a picture folder on your SD Card.
    3. Copy over any music folders, ringtone folders, video folders or any other miscellaneous data you may have stored on the internal memory to your SD Card. Do not delete them, just copy them.
    4. Download an SMS Backup program from the market, one called SMS Backup and Restore by Ritesh Sahu is a free app you can use. Backup to Gmail by cpedia Mobile is another app that will backup you calendar, SMS, MMS and Call log to Gmail, it is $1.99 in the market. SMS Backup + by Jan Berkel is another free app with good reviews.
    5. Set up an account and download the appbrain app to your phone from the Market. Appbrain will sync a list of all your installed apps to its server. This way you have a complete listing of all the apps you have installed, not just the paid apps tracked by the market.
    6. If you store your contacts locally on the phone rather than with Gmail, go into the People app and select Menu -> Import/Export. Follow the prompts to make a backup of your contacts to your SD Card.
    7. If you are paranoid about losing, game data there are several Angry Birds backup programs in the market. For other game apps search and see if there is a backup app available.
    8. Write down on a piece of paper what apps and widgets you have on each screen and put it in a safe spot. It's ol'skool but it works!


    Download the OTA

    Use this link to download the OTA

    The MD5 I got is: dcba30a164327c4f6903abf0222c5e9a

    Check the MD5 for the downloaded OTA file. This file contains a radio image and needs to be verified before you flash. You can download MD5 checker software here:


    For Mac.
    [WARN]WARNING: Please check the MD5 before flashing the OTA zip. The OTA contains a radio image as well as the ROM. If the MD5 does not match that means you have a corrupt download and if you flash it you will soon have a Brick instead of a phone.[/WARN]

    Rename the Original file from:
    6f37e6f6b9ab.OTA_Incredible_C_Gingerbread_S_VERIZON_WWE_4.06.605.3-3.26.605.1_release_210690.zip
    to
    update.zip

    Using your USB cable connect the phone to your PC.
    Copy the update.zip file to the root of your SD card.

    Flashing the OTA:

    1. Power off your phone.
    2. Start your phone by holding down the Vol Down and Power buttons at the same time.
    3. This will take you to HBOOT.
    4. Wait a few moments, HBOOT will automatically search for the update.zip file.
    5. Once it finds the file and starts to flash the update, you will see a black screen with green circular arrows and a progress bar. Don't do anything until it is done. It will reboot by itself when it is done. It will look like it's rebooting 3 times, this is normal.
    6. Go get a drink and wait for full boot. The first boot will take a while. It will look like it's hung on the Droid eye for several minutes. Do not panic.
    7. Enjoy the Gingerbread goodness


    [NOTE]You may have some apps that force close after the update, try un-installing and re-installing the app first.[/NOTE]

    Good luck!

    Default Re: OTA Gingerbread!

    Stig.....this is an Awesome and Thorough set of Instructions. I must tell you however, that my experience was MUCH, MUCH simpler with no need to Reformat the SD Card....and maybe 1/4 of the steps you've listed. Again. as usual, I must say "do this at your own risk".....but my update was exceedingly simple. I have a Stock Dinc that was running Froyo before the Update.

    My SIMPLE Method

    My steps were this.....

    Download the Update File from Stig's or Muddy's links and store it in a known location on your Computer.

    Connect your Dinc via USB Cable and select "Hard Drive" from the option box that pops up on your Dinc. Move the file to the Root Directory on your SD Card. Rename the file "update".....NOT "update.zip" on the SD Card. The zip extension will be added automatically. I did this with Windows Explorer

    Disconnect your Dinc from the Computer and Power it completely down.

    Hold down the "Volume Down" Key and the "Power Key" simultaneously. The phone will power up into HBOOT.....and recognize the new "update" file automatically.

    That's IT!

    Just be patient as the phone updates. This is as simple as it gets. No Apps, Mail, Contacts, Media or SMS were lost on my Stock Dinc. No need to Reformat the SD Card. The phone boots incredibly fast and is smoother than before.

    Stig, .....Please Check my Work


    Good Luck and please post updates for others....D

    Essentially the your instructions are the same same as mine, without the double check steps.

    I agree that it may be overkill for experienced users, however it's always the same two or three things that hang people up... update.zip.zip or SD Card is FAT and not FAT32 or update.zip in /download folder.

    To be honest when I flashed my wife's phone this evening I downloaded twice and scratched my head thinking "Why didn't that work?" I could have sworn her SD was already FAT32, but it was FAT. <<dohh>>

    By breaking it down into "quick to see if this applies to me" steps (for example if you know your FAT32 or check and see you are FAT32 then the bulk of the rest does not apply) it cuts way down on the "OMG I bricked my phone threads."

    Backing up on the other hand is not something that can be explained too often in my opinion!

    The MD5 check is something else that gets glossed over too often. When flashing radios, double checking that the file is good never hurts.

    Tony - sure, just be sure to download ROM Manager and update Clockwork recovery to whatever the latest 5.x is (since you've never flashed ROMs before you probably have a 2.x version) And do a Nandroid of your current ROM before flashing Nils'. There is a current Clockwork thread in the ROMs and Hacks forum.

    Correction the Clockwork thread is in the general DInc forum <<oops>>

    My incredible now thinks it has a 4.3" screen aand has sprint instead of verizon in the market.

    Yes that is strange could verizon really of missed the fact that sprint is showing in the market and not the crappy verizon apps. I assume your screen shows the wrong size too.

    That is a pretty big oppps

    If you have already run Unrevoked Forever and have S-OFF on your Incredible, you'll be fine. (You can check that in hboot if you don't remember). If you are S-ON, you will probably lose root access by running the update, and I'm not aware of anyone having found an exploit for this OTA update yet.

    If you are rooted there is an already rooted version in the Dinc ROMs and Hacks forum. Use that one.

    Just did the manual update. Worked fine, but it seems most of the apps on my SD card aren't showing up. I double checked that it's mounted, it is, and all the data is there... it just seems the phone forgot the apps exist.

    got to love appbrain for keeping a list.

    but if you are rooted, I would install each app one by one instead of a full restore.....but I guess that is for another thread.

    So what would be causing these messages when it attempts to apply the update:

    " Failed to verify whole-file signature "
    " Signature verification failed"

    Ok. I dled the OTA file. Changed it to update leaving the .zip that was already there. I placed it in the root of my FAT32 verified SD card (/sdcard) and I go into HBOOT and I get nothing.

    It keeps saying no image or wrong image.

    What am I doing wrong?
