Verizon's HTC Droid Incredible 2 is getting an over-the-air update that brings the following improvements:

What will be the repurcussions for imported/cracked phones in India. I guess one of the guru's will have to get and patch the RUU. Also, it may take sone time for the rooting tools, Titanium, and recovery to be updated.

For a Droid Incredible 2 which is not MEID registered with Reliance or other carrier and is used through the chinese ROM via UIM Card in CDMA Mode, no updates can be applied as it may break the UIM card functionality. You'll have to wait for the updated chinese ROM. Same principle will apply for ICS update too as and when it becomes available.

For a handset which is MEID registered and working on CDMA without the UIM card, RUU should work well. If one is using only for GSM, then too RUU should work.

This is my educated guess. Some Incredible 2 owner will be in a better position to confirm authentically.

HTC Posts Android 4.0 Update Timeline, Expects To Finish Upgrades By August

Source

HTC Android 4 Official Blog Announcement >> http://www.htc.com/w...id=android4blog

Wondering when your HTC Android device is going to receive its update to Android 4.0? Then you'll be glad to hear that HTC has provided a timeline showing approximately when it expects each of its Ice Cream Sandwich-upgradable phones to be bumped up to Google's latest dessert. HTC says that the majority of its devices will be updated in June and July 2012 and that it plans to finish updating its announced devices by August. Here's how the list breaks down:

  • Amaze 4G: May-June
  • Desire S: June-July
  • Desire HD: July-August
  • DROID Incredible 2: To be determined, but coming by the end of August
  • EVO 3D: June-July
  • EVO 4G+: May-June
  • EVO Design 4G: June-July
  • Incredible S: June-July
  • Sensation: March-June
  • Sensation 4G: March-June
  • Sensation XE: March-June
  • Sensation XL: April-June
  • Rezound: June-July
  • Rhyme: June-July
  • ThunderBolt: July-August
  • Velocity 4G: March-June
  • Vivid: March-June

HTC notes that things like the testing and approval process can take some time, so owners of these devices should keep in mind that rollouts can take up to 45 days from the start of the push to reach everyone. The manufacturer also confirms a handful of devices (like the Wildfire S) that won't be updated to Android 4.0, explaining that devices with 512MB of RAM or less generally won't be upgraded. Tablets like the Flyer, EVO View 4G and Jetstream will also remain Ice Cream Sandwich-less.

[Leak] HTC Droid Incredible 2 Gets Its Own Ice Cream Sandwich ROM Based On Leaked RUU

Source

ROM Link >> http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1846304

Allegedly based on another leaked RUU from HTC. Readers may remember the Incredible 2 as being among devices officially slated by HTC to receive Ice Cream Sandwich "by the end of August," so this leak's timing isn't too hard to figure out.

The ROM, which carries Sense 3.6 over top of Ice Cream Sandwich and software build number 7.01.605.01, is the stock HTC fair you may expect, but with a few tweaks ranging from root to removal of HTC's inconvenient app association settings.

HTC Evo 4G was a 2010 flagship device of Sprint which was launched on its WiMAX network..

Despite having a great 4.3 inches screen, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and 512 MB RAM HTC has no desire to update this great phone to Android ICS. So, there will be no official Ice Cream Sandwich for HTC Evo 4G. But you can do this yourself; this is the fun of using the Android. Here is a step by step guide to upgrade HTC Evo 4G with Android ICS. http://pinappu.hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Upgrade-HTC-Evo-4G-with-Android-ICS-aka-Ice-Cream-Sandwich

Bad Motorola. And US operator's strategy to sell new phones.

I expected this... If they gave FREE ICS update to Atrix, then who will buy their (and AT&T's) AtrixHD? If they (Moto and Sprint) updates their Photon to ICS, then there is no need to buy PhotonQ for them...

Atleast they should have released PhotonQ or AtrixHD with JB instead of ICS... Oh, I understand now... They released them with ICS so that they can release JB somehow after 6 to 9 months and say they have whole-heartedly supported these age old devices (after 9 months) and can avoid KeyLimePie altogether...

My greatest anger with Motorola is, they should have atleast released their phones with Unlockable Bootloaders (like PhotonQ) to non-verizon or atleast their International versions and we need NOT run behind these d0uchebags for the update to the latest OS version...

Even if owned by Google, Motorola will never change... I promise I will never buy a Moto device without unlockable BL again even if it comes with greatest of build-quality + Radios and out of the world battery life...

---------------------------------------------------------------------

But Moto is also sure they can sell their new devices to these same Atrix and Photon owners by their 100$ rebate on upgrade to latest Moto Phones (When they sell their Moto phones with NO JB till 2012).. This also means they are very committed to new sales than upgrade to old phones (like every all others)...

Thats why I did not go for Razr Maxx. Poor upgrades from Motorola inspite of being acquired by google. I also have a GSM defy and have installed CM10 on it to see how it works. Believe me it is pretty smooth. Could not find any bugs.

I was patiently waiting for Motorola to release ics updates for the photon but now that they have royally screwed the photon users, I think it's time to unlock that bootloader and start experimenting with custom ROMs
