Androidcentral.com has traced a source to get your hands on the official Froyo build for the HTC incredible.  This isn’t a port or custom rom, it’s apparently the real deal.

I don’t have an incredible to personally test on, but reading through the comments on androidcentral.com it seems there are plenty of success stories of end users updating perfectly fine.

This method comes packaged as a desktop executable, that you run from your computer while your phone is plugged in.  It seems to make it a pretty simple process.  If you’re rooted, this has to be done manually however, and the steps for that are outlined below.

Please note that this does re-flash your phone to install the update so you will have to re-setup your phone after installing.  It will be like you just took it out of the box on day one, except running Froyo.

Froyo update package for non-rooted users: Download Here

Installation steps for rooted Users:

  • Note 1* – If you are rooted, make sure you have flashed the unrevoked-forever file!
  • Note 2* – If you just want to update to 2.2 without root, just plug your phone in and run the RUU.
  • 1. Download this file and place on your SD card.
  • 2. Boot into hboot (Hold optical button + power) and select Bootloader.
  • 3. PB31IMG.ZIP will start to install.
  • Step 3 note Your phone might reboot to either hboot or recovery after trying to install PB31IMG.ZIP, just get back to hboot and install again, when you get back to hboot you should notice its version .92 and S-OFF is still on, just install PB31IMG.ZIP again and all should be good. I believe at one point after it updates hboot it has to reboot to finish the install, so this might be what you are seeing.
  • 4. Reboot, setup your google account, etc.
  • 5. Put the files attached below on the root of your SD-Card.
  • Files are PB31IMG.ZIP (this is not the update, either delete the other PB31IMG.ZIP or rename it to PB31IMG.BAK, this is just clockwork recovery in the PB31IMG.ZIP) , payload-update.zip, and su-***
  • 6. Power down phone and boot to hboot (hold optical button + power).
  • 7. Install PB31IMG.ZIP in hboot, this installs clockwork recovery.
  • 8. Once that is done installing, press volume down, so your phone doesn’t reboot, then select recovery.
  • 9. Once you boot into recovery choose install zip from SD-Card, then choose payload-update.zip.
  • 10. After that installs, choose to install another zip and install su-
  • 11. Reboot and enjoy your rooted phone running the new Froyo.”
