Froyo Making its Way to Vodafone HTC Desire in “7-10 Days”



In a statement addressing the poor reception of the recent Vodafone 360 Android 2.1 update that added bloatware in the form of 360-branded apps to a once pristine OS, it was announced that the Froyo update for the handset should be coming in “7-10 days.” That is of course pending final testing and quality control. And yes, the Android 2.2 update will eliminate all unwanted applications added with the previous Vodafone 360 update. Here is the full text:

“We’ve listened to feedback from customers on a number of points around the recent 360 Android 2.1 update and made some changes to the roll out plan.

The Android 2.2 update for Vodafone HTC Desire users will be based on the HTC open market version of the software and we will customise it to ensure our network settings are installed.

For customers who have downloaded the recent 360 update for Android 2.1, we can confirm that the Android 2.2 update will remove the 360 applications and will leave the homepage and bookmarks on your current settings.

Customers who want to access the 360 services will be able to do so once the Android 2.2 compatible version is available and, in the meantime, can now download apps like 360 People from the Android Marketplace.

We plan to make the 360 apps available in a separate update for the HTC Desire at a later date, giving customers the choice to download it. We will let you know when the date for delivery of the Android 2.2 update is finalised, but, subject to testing, we expect this to be in 7-10 days time.”

Hopefully those days stick, and we have good reason to believe they will given the recent string of timely OTAs pushing Android 2.2 onto devices.

  3. About time a company listened to it’s customers………..

  4. Give my incredible 2.2 or give me death

  5. vodafone offers the incredible?

  6. This wait is incredibly disappointing. At least give us that 2.1 update that added some features (still one of the best phone I’ve used).

  7. @arcade fire since I’ve had stock Froyo for 2 months already on my Nexus, for me its give me Gingerbread or give me death ;)

  8. Ah good, so the PR department stepped-in for Vodafone, meanwhile their HTC Magic customers still await any official news to an update to 2.x. I, and many others, have chosen to walk from Vodafone, they have shown they have zero comprehension of the smartphone market time and time again.

    For my part, luckily I have chosen to bypass Vodafone (and my warranty with them) and root Froyo on the thing myself (curtesy of CyanogenMOd 6) and I now actually enjoy using my phone again.

    Vodafone are the definition of the customer is always wrong.
