  • bela

    Why are they wasting their tinlme with froyo, instead of readying gingerbread?

  • Paper8

  • Daytona

    No dice here for me. Desire HD – 3 Mobile Australia

  • Travis

    Took about 10 mins to update… not sure whats different though. Sense seems to be a little more snappier than usual, or maybe I’m just imagining it?

  • http://Phandroid Daitron

    Why isn’t the G2 getting this update, they are the exact same phone…..

  • Paper8

    Got it few hours ago. Installed it but can’t see no difference

  • henk janse

    modded my visionary+ rooted desire hd with titanium backup, no update possible cause he doesn’t find facebook ;-) but i don,t bother because I’ll wait for gingerbread thinking that is an complete rom due to compatibility issues.

  • João Monteiro

    I got mine yesterday for my DZ at Portugal after seeing this post and making a manual update. Don’t know exactly what changed but the interface really seems snappier. Also, it changed my soundset to the default one so I had to switch sets again.
