    I was just curious. I replaced my Incredible with the Thunderbolt. I still have my DInc, but it does not have service through Verizon anymore. I can use my Incredible on WiFi, and update Market apps and such, but my question is, will I be able to receive the update, or will I have to download and flash the OTA file once it is released?

    I got the .2 to .3 ota update and caught the dl location! Wohoo!

    I/SystemUpdateService( 240): starting download of http://android.clients.google.com/pa...ase_211679.zip
    I/update.Download( 240): Started a new update download: http://android.clients.google.com/pa...ase_211679.zip


    Update: I had trouble after downloading with my phone not wanting to reboot. I canceled 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.

    No. still says 4.3 inch WVGA resolution .

    I'd take screen shots but I'm at work right now and not rooted.


    EDIT: I never did the ota install from froyo to gingerbread though. I updated from 4.06.605.2 to 4.06.605.3 . I'm not sure if that might have different results.

    Ok, i just wanted to make sure my version said the same thing as this file, check if you get the low space error message still.

    I have but it only stayed for about 20 seconds before it took care of itself. It was a lot worse on froyo, IMO.

    Once while rooted I noticed the application space available was only 312Mb or 368Mb. I thought this was weird because It has 512Mb but 736Mb if you look at apps2sd. Anyhow, my point being that when I approached that limit I've noticed the low space message obviously. I'm not sure why we can't use all of the 512Mb.

    Did you rename the file to update.zip or pb31img.zip before you tried flashing it?

    I am trying to go from .2 to .3 and cannot get it to work when I flash it in hboot. I renamed it update.zip. Hboot says something about PB31IMG.zip than goes back to the hboot screen and nothing happens.

    I'm assuming you placed this update.zip in the root of your SD card?

    Froyo to gingerbread you should rename the file update.zip

    .2 to .3 should be renamed update.zip

    That is what worked for me at least.

    ***update*** whatever file you need will need to be renamed update.zip.

    Check to make sure you didn't leave the old pb31img.zip on the root as well as this new update zip

    Mine flashed pb31img on the few first line until it found the update.zip file.

    Also, you can confirm file integrity using hash in my earlier post...

    Have you tried installing zip file from SD and then choosing the file. If you went from 4.06.605.2 to .3 you may want to check your apps for Super user as the ones I have seen on here are the Rooted version. Especially if you're getting the incorrect propbuild file. My .3 says I have the correct screen size.

    I have a quik question. I am rooted and have version 2.2 with a ROM called Incredibly Re-Engineered. If i download the OTA 2.3 update from XDA and install it manually from SD card will it go through or will it brick my phone. Or do i have to go back to stock to update it manually? I dont care if i loose root just tell me if i can just install it over that rom or do i have to go back to stock

    then power off your phone and boot into hboot by holding vol down and power it should automatically find the file and run the update. For this to work you must be complete stock

    Still no luck. In the hboot screen when I try and flash it says something about PB31DIAG. It flashes so fast it is hard to tell what it all says.
