I see, so u do get to buy apps there. Sigh.... paid apps ain't available here in M'sia. There were some apps I wanted, had to find replacements for it. Now I've forgotten which was the one I wanted. Lol.

OK enough ranting, back to topic.

After using froyo for a few weeks on legend now, I'd says I'm quite happy with it. Everything feels smother, except that after about a week it starts to lag a little, then its time to reboot the phone and everything is smooth again.
Live wallpapers eats too much CPU. However, I found an interesting live wallpaper that's good on the CPU. Its called multipicture live wallpaper. It gives all your screens a different still picture, but can rotate the pics every X amount of set time. Theres alot of setting can play with, and its FREE. For those who dislike 1 still wallpaper for all screens.

Yea... I did buy Tasker straight from the dev. But I do wish that theres a reason why we cant download somewhere around.... It may be a bit too much to ask, but... well... its nice to know.

Yeah... the multipicture is on the market now tho.

Maybe it's because I am not too choosy but the free apps have so far met my needs.

I am looking for an Android tablet now. Now choosing between the Samsung Galaxy Tab vs Viewsonic 7 vs China- made OEM ones. Still undecided but if the specs are comparable, I will go for the Chinese OEM ones as they are way cheaper.

Drop by in Singapore, buy a local SIM card and d/l all you require before going back M'sia. If you are staying at Johore, it should be fairly convenient.

Not sure if you picked up on this but you can d/load from the HTC site now....

See:

ROM Upgrade for HTC Legend (Vodafone)

I am on the VHA network in Syndey and the update has worked ok for me. Caution though - this method of update will wipe all progs and data from your device - backup !

Default HTC Legend

Hi

I have checked my phones settings... Vodophone P-as-Y-Go to find i have
Android 2.2 with Build no. 3.14.161.1 CL282424 Release keys ( UK resident )

Is this the Froyo 2.2 upgrade that everyone 's talking about here ?

When i bought the Legend it came with 2.1 Eclair so the phone must have updated itself via Vodophone as I have not done any upgrades .

Can anyone confirm this ?

Cheers Shaun

Can anyone give me step-by-step instructions on using a gold card to install the WWE edition of FroYo for the Legend? Everything I find tells me how to root but not how to just install the WWE as per my request on this thread:

Help! legend not updating, wifi gone

I'm fairly computer savvy but don't want to cock this up because my wife is an iPhone 4 user and will not only rip on me for being Android but also for the $500 I spent on the handset if I brick it

I just found a vid on unlockr about unrooting the phone - basically they said to hook it up with HTC synch and run the app from Windows - would this actually work?

you will have had a message saying it wants an upgrade, it takes about 10 minutes so you may've forgotten it.
Yep it is, Voda put it out ages ago

that's unrooting, what you want to do is flash a ROM without root using a goldcard I believe? I read the thread you pointed me to.
That is basically what the root process does, but it needs other things as well.
I don't think it's possible tbh and if it were, it would pretty much be rooting but putting in a different ROM and I don't think that'd work.

If I were you, I would just root using theunlockr's guide and flash it, I think that would actually be SAFER than what you want to do (as far as I know)

I'd like to add that I've never heard of a fully bricked Legend
