HTC Desire Already Gets OTA


The HTC Desire is only available for T-Mobile UK because its brand stinkin’ new, but HTC is already telling Desire owners that an OTA is available and they should download pronto:

In our commitment to providing you with the best user experience, we are pushing out a new firmware update to your phone. Your phone will receive a notification of this update when it is made available. Simply press OK to accept the update via a data connection such as Wi-Fi or GPRS/3G. After installing the update, you can confirm a successful update by confirming the Software Number (From the Home Screen go to MENU> Settings> About Phone> Software information> Software number). The new software number after the update will be 1.15.405.4 for an HTC phone.

Note: We recommend using a free Wi-Fi hotspot or an unlimited data plan to apply this update. If not, standard data connection charges may apply. For any questions, please contact us at http://www.htc.com/www/CA_Hotline.aspx

We’re not sure what the 1.15.405.4 update fixes, patches, improves or otherwise, but if you’re an HTC Desire owner who has noticed a difference between the before and after – let us know! There are a bunch of people on the HTC Desire Forum following the OTA so head over there to join in.

  1. im hating!

  2. Wow HTC updating a brand new phone model! HTC and Update in the same sentence just doesn’t seem fitting.Must have been some real problems with the phone for an update like this from HTC.

  3. Yup.

    There are a few issues but its good there was such a fast update.

  4. Ah, Europe gets OTAs fast but the US gets to chill for 3-4 months before the rumors even slightly become true.

  5. It’ll be a small thing that affects like 10% of users, being this quick. I’ve been waiting 6 months for a Hero update, Europe ain’t quick either!

  6. I just came across this article about a quality control issue:

    My Desire has delayed by about a week while some T-Mobilers have already got theirs before the delay occurred. Presumably this update is to fix whatever failed quality control on those devices shipped before the glitch was found.

  7. Maybe it’s to make it harder to root, to counteract Modaco already figuring out how to do it.

  8. hey…
    i have a small question for you experts out there… what happens if say i get this phone after a couple months of release, would it have all the updates already incorporated in it… or do i have to then worry abt getting the updates either OTA or otherwise.. Sorry for the noob question, the only reason i ask is coz i cant get these phones here, so will probably get them from US or somewhere else, thus making the whole update process an impossibility.

  9. I´m not sure if its true but I just read here http://www.androidsis.com/htc-desire-recibe-una-actualizacion/ that it is an update for 720p video recording! The article is in Spanish.
