How To Update HTC Droid Incredible 2 to Gingerbread 2.3 Firmware

Note: Since the firmware update has been updated, all the APN Settings will be cleared. So, to access all the data services / MMS / Internet, you will have to get the Internet settings from your Service provider.

New features / Enhancements in this update:

Apart from this, you can also enjoy a dedicated section of downloads in which all the downloads which are made from your phone are listed over at one place so that you can centrally manage all the downloads from that section.

    I was trying to upgrade my incredible 2 to 2.3 gingerbread firmware, but while doing so per the guide, I was not able to continue because the rom manager does not have incredible 2 as one of the phones on its list. Any idea of how to resolve this?

        I uninstalled and reinstalled the rom manager, but it still doesn’t show the droid incredible 2 as one of the phones; it does show the incredible S. Also, FYI, my phone is not rooted yet.

        Should I choose the incredible S as my phone? Does my phone have to be rooted for me to be able to upgrade the firmware?
