HTC Desire Android 2.2

Anyone know when this handset will get the update to 2.2 on the O2 network?

Also what benefits does 2.2 have?

I'd also be interested to know this, Although from reading everywhere I can't find any solid info on it. It was suggested the update would come at the very end of June, but how long, or IF O2 decided to port it over to their handsets is anyone's guess.

There are some details about Froyo here. http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and ... ser-691051
If O2 doesn't release it promptly after 23rd June, perhaps someone on XDA Developers will come up with some way of installing it.

HTC Desire Android 2.2

It's not officially out on the Nexus yet. I'm running a pre final release copy.
Faster than 2.1 and the ability to move apps to the SD card are the major improvements

If your HTC Desire is from O2 you may have to wait until (a) Google finally deliver it OTA (over the air) at which time Nexus users will get it, then (b) HTC have to test it with Sense before they ship it then maybe (c) O2 have to approve it.
Could be a long wait.

I'd be surprised if that hadn't already been done, or nearly done. Why would HTC wait until the official release day?

you should see the pressure on the nexus support forum to get this thing done and shipped. HTC surely have early releases but the final version will ship to them, my guess, about the same time it starts OTA. So HTC will still have some testing to do.

Hmm just asked this question myself since the search system failed to find this topic, if we have to wait for O2 to complete testing on it then I think we are a loooooooooooooooong way from getting it :smileysad:

People are asking this on all networks - not just O2

If you are keen on getting updates as soon as they are released by the manufacturer then you have 2 choices.

1. Buy a generic phone SIM free

2. Root your phone and install any ROM / Update that is suitable

Option to may bring about warranty issues
