    Hey all,

    So apparently build 2.03.403 was released by HTC for our Legends on or around the 8th June.

    - HTC Legend Firmware Update 2.03.403: New Features | xda-developers
    - Firmware Update - Legend HTC WWE 2.03.405.3 - xda-developers

    Major improvements are:

    • New version of Quickoffice
    • Battery life improvement
    • Improved performance
    • Multitouch for Google Maps (!)
    • New Radio

    My Legend, which I bought sim-free / network-free / unbranded does not tell me I'm due for upgrade, therefore I'm still running 1.31.405.5

    So am I in the minority or are most of you rocking 1.31.405.x too?

    EDIT: Voting/Poll will close in 28 days so forum search results in the future do not provide false information!!

    Reading around, it seems as though most people may have updated their version using the GoldCard method.

    But surely if it's a genuine HTC update [which it is], why is it not an OTA update?

    Did you get the update OTA or manually install it yourself? If the latter, I presume via the GoldCard method?

    Just a word of warning for anyone thinking of updating to 2.03.405.3 - as I understand it you can't root your phone once you have updated to it, at least not at the moment anyway.

    Yeah, i used the goldcard method. personally, it's well worth it.

    and yeah, 2.03.405 cannot be rooted yet, but im sure some nerd out there will get it working.

    What am i doing wrong??
    I did the goldcard, I open the update, it finds my phone and goes it to reboot mode, then it just stays as waiting for bootloader, which stays for about 2 mins ... then it comes up as error please check USB is in phone and PC and that's it!

    Also when it says connect your phone I do that, now it comes up with all 4 options, charge only, HTC Sync, Driver method andsomething else, what do I click on now? coz it will just load HTC Sync if left on for about 10 secs


    Can someone please tell me their method of doing this please
    also when reating a goldcard what does this mean
    "4. *Make sure you have installed the SDK and Fastboot correctly from Section I!!!"

    I didnt understand that fastboot bit
    Am using the guide from here How To: Create a Goldcard | TheUnlockr

    did you download the rom from a site called ShippedRoms?

    thats where i got mine and once i downloaded it i just treated it like installing a new program. plug my phone in, then open the rom...it does the rest for you.

    i got mine here:

    the one i downloaded is called:

    To create a gold card I used this - Klutsh.com -> Download Manager -> Software Releases -> GoldCard Tool v0.0.5 (use at your own risk)

    And then I used the same ROM as mentioned by Mr.Derringer.

    Seemed like a much quicker and easier way to do things, and it worked for me.

    Just be aware that -

    1. You will probably void your warranty doing this
    2. If it goes wrong you could end up with a phone that doesn't work at all

    I left it at the screen and re-started the ROM, now it's coming up as "sending" instead of "waiting for Bootloader" ...... hopefully it's doing it =)

    UPDATING Radio and GREEN bar going accross my screen! WOO!
    Thanks GUYS!

    What does RUU mean? Everyone is talking about "ruu this and ruu that" but I don't have the slightest idea what that means. :D

    Also my phone is unbranded, so would that mean that I don't need a goldcard for updating?

    Debranded mine today. I missed a obvious trick, and it drove me nuts. I created my Goldcard, but the first MicroSD card I tried did not work too well. I then tried other cards and nothing worked.

    The bit I only later realised, is the Goldcard is specific to the card you are using, if you try another card, you need to re-capture the serial number, and regenerete the Goldcard each time.

    Doh... Shame none of the guides mention this subtle point!!! I wasted the best part of a day on that problem.

    I also got a Error 140 error updating Bootloader. It would not load the older HTC RUU on it, I had to use the newer 2.03.405.3 which worked a champ.

    I also had LOTS of problems in Windows7. Using the vista driver made things a little better, but still problematic. It would say the "HTC bootloader driver was locked in memory" and it needed a reboot. Flashing in XP was alot less problematic.
