HTC Incredible owners now getting Android 2.2 Verizon Wireless has started rolling out Android 2.2 Froyo to HTC Incredible owners this weekend.
Froyo brings a 450 percent performance boost over 2.1, native support for Flash 10.1, USB and Wi-Fi tethering, Apps2SD and cloud sync.

Since the start of August, the Nexus One, the HTC EVO 4G and the original Motorola Droid have updated to 2.2. Additionally, the Droid 2 has launched with the updated software already installed.

A few other phones, such as the Dell Streak, Motorola Droid X, HTC MyTouch 3G Slide and Samsung Captivate have all had 2.2 promised but with no set timetable.

The rollout should be completed by the end of the week.

To download the update, go to Settings, About Phone, System Updates. The update is about 93.7MB.

No I haven't gotten it either. I have a CA number, but currently am in VA.

It's OTA so chances are the update won't show up under Setting>About Phone>System Update.... It'll just show up when you least expect it.
As of now 10:56 PM Eastern Standard Time...NO UPDATE..

If you can get it, then it pops up on it's own. Alternately, you can go online and download the rom to your SD card, rename it update.zip, and reboot into recovery mode to install.
