    Hello all,

    My Desire has notified me that update 2.33.161.2 is available for Android 2.2.

    Before I hit the button has anyone installed this and is it OK?

    I'm on Vodafone by the way

    Thank you

    Well, I've just finished installing it.

    The good news - very smooth install with no Vodafone branding/bloatware.

    Otherwise, at first glance at least (and perhaps somewhat disappointingly) no discernible difference. Although I'm sure that somebody will reel off a list of obvious changes that I have missed in due course.

    You won't see any change to the UI, but you'll have better apps and things like wifi hotspot where you can use your mobile as a access point for your laptop or PC.

    got twitchy ..... so went and did it.

    Seems fine ........ no Voda bloatware as far a I can see but I can't see any obvious changes.

    And the update takes ages ......... lots of on off on off boot shut down reboot ..... and most alarmingly long period of "nothing" when it for all the world looks like the phone has hung.
    The thought occurred ..how long shall I leave it before I pull the battery out?
    Even when you cancel the message notifying you that the update has been been successful starts of another sequence ......Thankfully I stuck with and it finally came "back"

    But I already had wifi hotspot on 2.2. It was a 30mB update file though so presumably something has changed (maybe this is a lead up to Gingerbread).

    possible BUT as there isnt official word yet whether 2.3 android (gingerbread) is going to be on anything OTHER than the new samsung phone (nexus s) just yet then why would branded desires be getting lead up updates? :confused:

    I've since read that it may be to improve the playback of hd video footage but, as there appears to be no official confirmation, I was just speculating (almost certainly wrongly). I don't know, you share a piece of news that you think may be of interest and that's the thanks you get. I promise never to mention the G word again.

    Hi,

    I took the latest update yesterday and now I find that my Desire won't charge - either from the USB cable (HTC) or via either of my wall chargers/docking station. How strange? I haven't changed anything else. The phone takes the power and the red LED comes on but it doesn't charge - the battery indicator stays static.

    Anyone any ideas????
    Thanks,
    Howard
    :eek:

    back up everything either via mybackup or titanium backup and then hard reset your phone...sometimes during updates things get a lil messed up...meaning the updates fine but it somtimes just needs you to kick the phone into touch a lil...happened ALOT on my old nokia 5800 lol..

    try that and see if it works.

    2.33 161.2
    I found this update by chance today when I was looking through my phone and looked at the update phone option.
    It took me ages to do the update, as I had to remove loads of apps to make space, but to be fair some of them where pointless.. Eg the talking cat etc.?
    Not noticed any difference to be honest, and the phone is now sat charging normally. Think I'm gonna have to upgrade the memory card from the current 8gb model I have.

    mod on vodafone forum says

    at least they are passing on bloatware free updates quickly and smoothly. long may this continue after the way they messed up 2.2.

    Cheers for the info on this guys, my Desire's installing this update atm & was wondering what differences there may be.

    == edit ==
    Actually just finished, only 2 reboots (including one at start) and took under 5 min's in total. Batt says it's charging too, so hopefully all good :)

    Have any of you Desirable users found the latest update improve the battery life?

    I am now getting a whole day whereas before it would only last around 8 hours. Viewing the battery discharge graph in System Monitor, the slope is much shallower.

    I had problems following update to 2.2 with android processes failing and HTC fixed it. On return yesterday I found that the latest update was ready (2.33.161.2) and so downloaded it straight away. I now find that emails stay on the phone even when taken off the server by my PC. This leaves a mix of emails on the phone - if the phone syncs with the server before the PC it goes on the phone. If the PC gets to the server first then the phone knows nothing about it.

    Before repair the phone would drop emails once they had been taken off the server - a far more civilised aproach!

    I recall others complained when the posts were taken off the phone when they came off the server - why can't we have an option under settings?

    Are others having this 'issue' since applying the 2.2 upgrade (2.33.161.2) or is this something else?

    Update on desire completed, took only a few mins, and no apparent problems. Battery is charging and according to BatteryLife the % is going up.

    Now just need to wait for some lovely Gingerbread!

    Since installing 2.33.161.2 (from vodafone) I am having 2 new problems with Flash videos.
    1) The picture freezes on all full screen videos but the sound continues (youtube, BBC iplayer, etc).
    2) Most videos on the BBC news site crash the browser.

    I have the browser set to
    Enable Plugins: On demand
    which used to stop the browser crashing when too many flash objects were on a page, but now it seems to crash when a single object is playing.

    Anyone else having these problems or am I just lucky?

    Any ideas how to fix this?
