Froyo Unofficially arrives on HTC Desire

Posted Image

udK over at XDA has posted the following videos of Android 2.2 Froyo running Sense on the HTC Desire.

It appears to be a ROM from an HTC test ROM as udK reports having removed the watermarks. It's not available just yet but it looks like we'll be getting this test build in the very near future. Check out the videos below...



Video sample recorded at 720p with the Desire.

Does this mean we'll be seeing the Desire port on Nexus One any time soon? :)

The current Desire ports to the Nexus One (well, the Modoco ones) have issues with bluetooth etc. Surely folks wouldn't want that as their main dependable phone?

I can manage shouting in my car with the speaker on :D
I am using the Desire port (R22.1) on my main phone. It is very dependable. For example, the Bluetooth simply doesn't work. :) There's more to my Nexus One than Bluetooth, though.

Cheers

If you really need/want Froyo, you need to return to stock for OTA. However, there are a number of way to manually install a Froyo ROM (search here or XDA).

BUGGER!!!!

Was hoping to get my stock Telstra A183 FW from shipped roms but looks like he's in a bit of trouble

Could someone upload the stock Telstra FW if they have it?

Much appreciated

http://www.pocket-li...elays-explained


Sorry, but you appear to have *completely* misread the article!

At no point does anyone say the Froyo for Desire isn't coming until Xmas.

What is said is that Eric Lin believes that HTC will be done with Froyo updates before Christmas.

What does this mean?

Well, for starters, he's referring to HTC devices as a whole, and is not singling out the Desire. As a flagship device, you can almost certainly expect the Desire to get Froyo before other devices in HTC's portfolio.

Secondly, before Christmas could mean tomorrow (July 8th) or Christmas Eve (24th December), or any date in between.

Thirdly, he said:

I don’t think you’re going to see that really long six month, seven month lag, like you saw in the updates from 1.5 to 2.1, simply because it’s a less severe change

Switching from 2.1 to 2.2, they made a lot of tweaks, but they didn’t make any gigantic changes, so it should be a much swifter process.


I really don't expect to be waiting for Froyo on the Desire beyond September this year.

Regards,

Dave

I wouldnt expect an OTA from Telstra any time soon - at least not for a while after the 'unbranded' handsets get it. Im pretty sure by the time Telstra get around to updating their FW, there will be dozens of other options.
