Android 2.2 for Virgin’s HTC Desire Released


For all of you Virgin Media customers with HTC Desires, your Android 2.2 update has finally made its way to your phones. You won’t have to mess around with applying it manually as it’ll be delivered to your devices over the air, and probably in a staggered process. More details on the update can be found below. Be sure to read over the details below to ensure you’ll be ready to go by the time you’re prompted to download the upgrade.


HTC Desire Android 2.2 Froyo Released 11/11/10

Hi I can confirm that we’ve started sending out the Froyo update as of 9am this morning, however this is only for customers on our Virgin specific firmware (1.23.351.1). Customers on the original firmware (1.15.405.4) will need an update to the 1.23.351.1 firmware first before they can install the Froyo update, but we expect this should be available in the next few days. I’ll post another update here once it goes live.

This is an FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) update which means that you will be prompted to download the update on their handset. We strongly recommend that you use a Wi-Fi connection to download the update. You’ll be asked if you want to back up your handset first, and we recommend this as well.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. LOL, whoever wrote this article doesn’t have a clue, Virgin Media is their broadband service, Virgin Mobile is the correct name of their mobile service provider network in the UK.

  2. Why was he supposed to know the specific name? He got the company basically right. Do you know the exact formal names for all the providers in brazil?

  3. Hey Lun, you smartarse – guess what? You’re wrong. Virgin media is the overall company that runs Virgin Broadband, Virgin TV and – tah duh – Virgin Mobile. Virgin Mobile would have been correct, but so’s Virgin Media. And Virgin Media has no more to do with broadband than it does with mobiles.

    Try again, you spazz.

  4. As a VM customer this comes as very welcome news. Shame it’s about 2 months too late as I rooted my VM Desire at the end of September after they mucked up the originally planned release date and went all silent on when they would release it. Initially ran Pinky until the dev went MIA and recently switched to LeeDroid which I really can’t fault :-) Been taking advantage of all the Froyo + root goodies while the majority of other VM customers twiddle their thumbs waiting ;-)

  5. Waiting for Virgin Mobile (AKA Virgin Media) to release Froyo for Galaxy S, Australia, through whatever channel…
