Re: HTC Desire 2.3 Gingerbread update

Many thanks for clearing up my concerns about the drivers, and also thank you for being so thoughtful. A rare attribute these days. I never did receive the link you sent, though.
I'm glad to hear you haven't encountered any problems with the update. I'm getting braver by the minute Smiley Very Happy

Re: HTC Desire 2.3 Gingerbread update

I think the PM system is a bit slow. You'll find it by googling eurodroid o2 htc desire 2.3 update. It's a good article as it has screen shots etc.
EDIT - I saved it as a draft rather than sending it :womanindifferent: prob best to just google it!

Yes I Googled it and had a look. Will most likely do the update some time over the weekend and will post my results here. Many thanks yet again.

Re: HTC Desire 2.3 Gingerbread update

The upgrade is out but its not available over the air, as per HTC its available only for developers and recommended for "expert users". It is also said that you should backup all your messages, emails, contacts and other personal information because instaaling the upgrade will erase all your pevcious customisation. The data stored on SD card will be safe.

Re: HTC Desire 2.3 Gingerbread update

Did the upgrade last night. Initial impressions: no problems running the RUU, usual pain of having to reload all the apps but that isn't a big problem (also is a good time to ditch stuff you never use). The big difference seems to be with power consumption; the new firmware seems much more frugal with the power, especially when the phone is on standby. Will report again after a couple of days of use.
Regards,
Tony

Re: HTC Desire 2.3 Gingerbread update

It's now available.

You have to install it like the 2.2 RUU that I posted back then, no other choice.
http://developer.htc.com/
By the way this means you will lose everything if you install it.

This link no longer points to the 2.3 update. Can't see it anywhere. Any idea where it is now?
