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.
