    Added. Scroll down and look at Madrox quoted text for how he got it to work.

    Add again: so I was damn tired when I got the link some other peeps helped out.
    Check out http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=770091
    there is some important version info that could limit if you can use this file or not.

    Have fun and stop stalking the darn internet now.

    Not sure if it works. People have DL'ed it and not been able to install it. I have kept from installing it on my phone till I figure out what is up.

    Found a curious file while searching for *.zip on my phone in /systems/etc/security/otacerts.zip

    trying to find out if other people that dont have the update have that on there phone. Like maybe an encrypted download for just my phone?

    What is the size of the otacerts.zip. Does it have a new datestamp? the file should have been there before.

    Teslatech, I have the same file but have not been upgraded to Froyo. mine is dated 5/6/2010 similiar as the OTA update way back.

    Just out of curiosity, how would one apply the update.zip on an Incredible? I myself own a Droid, and know how to do that no problem, but my brother owns a DInc and i've been keeping an eye out for the update for him. I think i'm more anxious than he is

    I was able to get teslatech's link to work. I simply clicked the link on my phone, and it downloaded the 95MB file to the download directory of my SD card. Using Astro, I then renamed it update.zip and moved it to the root directory of my SD.

    Then I ran the stock recovery program (detailed here for fellow n00bs) and it rebooted with Froyo installed!! Took a while, and I PANICKED when it froze at the new Droid eye splash screen, but after waiting for what seemed like an eternity, it got past it and went to a screen that counted up to 100%. At 25%, it came up with a screen that said "Congratulations, you have successfully updated your HTC phone to version 3.21.605.1 (the build number). After that, it completed the countdown and booted to my home screen and my system info shows Android version 2.2 in Software Info!!

    Widgets look different. Going to go download the new voice search now for the voice actions, and play around.

    But yes, teslatech's file DOES WORK!!! FINALLY!!!!
    Woot it worked for someone. I am going to sleep.

    Was this the same as the RUU ? or different ?Just have to use astro to move to SD card , rename file , and install on my stock phone? lol I am not sure of what is meant by "Root" of sd card either

    This is the official Over The Air update link that I received on my phone, logged and posted.

    Root is the top directory "/" so the root of the sdcard would just be the top directory of the sdcard. Or if you looking at it thru astro or something like that it will be /sdcard

    Shoot I just read over at xda that possibly if you removed anything from the stock system(I tried to remove some bloat with titanium before I went back to stock recovery) that the flash with not go and that is why I got kicked back to 2.1

    i cant get it to boot the update.zip. its in my /sdcard directory, but gives me an error message saying it cant find the file.

    E: failed to open /sdcard/update.zip (no such file or directory)
    E: signature verification failed.
    Installation aborted.

    I've done this before with another android back in the day for cupcake, so I dont understand why it isnt working.

    How about the weather app? Can you update, and does the flip clock widget show the current weather? It looks like it's being caused by Accuweather.com being coincidentally down, but we're trying to confirm that from multiple sources so some of us who have updated and are having trouble with the weather app/widget can relax a bit.

    Consider me a test subject. NO update and the weather widget was inoperative. Restarted my phone and it came up fine.

    Haha...the site must have come back up literally during the 45 seconds you were restarting. It's back up now, along with my weather widget/app.
