Here is a Stock 2.2 ROM with Sense based off the upcoming Froyo OTA. This is completely stock with the additions of su, Superuser.apk and busybox.
Everything has been confirmed working. Camera, camcorder, Wifi, bluetooth, GPS, MMS, etc…
A full wipe and 2.x radio is required.
See below for more information and instructions regarding the 2.x radio.

Get the ROM here!
There are quite a few new additions that have been included. New Gmail with Copy & Paste, HTC Flashlight, FM Radio widget, Calculator widget, SMS widget, Sync all widget, profile widgets, 3g mobile hotspot, genie widget, App sharing program, messaging app changed a bit, 720p recording, built in flash on camcorder, and more stuff that I can’t think of off the top of my head.
Do I have the proper radio to run this ROM?
You must have the 2.x radio or certain functions of the ROM won’t work. The camcorder definitely won’t work and it’s possible other functions won’t either. Follow the instructions below you verify what radio you are running and instructions on updating to the 2.x radio.
What version am I running?
Go to Settings > About phone > Software information > Baseband version
If its 2.05.00.06.11 then you can ignore the rest of these instructions and just flash the ROM.
If its 1.00.03.04.06 then you need to update your radio.

    Does the article pertain to the HTC Incredible? I don’t think there is a Motorola Droid Incredible just the “Droid” and “Droid X”.

    Please verify.
