How to update the HTC Droid Incredible to Android 2.2 (Froyo)
  1. Download the update.zip file. This contains the only files we will need from now on. Make sure that the exact name will be “update.zip”, as others won’t work.

  2. Place the file above in the root of your SD card. That means no folders guys.

  3. Turn off the cellphone and bring it back to life by pressing the “Power” and “Volume Down” buttons. This will make the Incredible go into HBOOT mode.

  4. In the shown menu, use the “Volume up”, “Volume down” buttons to navigate and “Power” to select your option. Scroll down to the “Recovery” menu and choose it. Wait until an “exclamation mark and triangle” sign appears, and hold “Volume Up” and “Power” at the same time.

  5. Now navigate to the “apply sdcard:update.zip” option and select it using “Power”, like above.

  6. Have a little patience as the process completes and then reboot your smartphone. That’s all.
