    Been waiting for this.
    Downloaded, said to install now.. now my phone is more ****ed than it was before.
    At least before if I had to turn it off then it would at least turn back on.. now it won't even do that. Great. No phone for me.

    EDIT: It's all fixed. (My phone might not be but it's back on now..). I can't really see what's new?!!! Apart from the notifications bar when pulled down, the panel at the bottom and an "AM" next to the time?!

    After it's installed check the settings and see what it's listed as. In the US it indicates it's 2.3.3 it's being installed, but then after it's installed it shows up as 2.3.4.

    @disconfigured I'm guessing it changed it to 12HR instead of 24HR time mode and thus showing AM/PM.

    Thanks for the headsup premiump.

    Just downloaded the update now over HSDPA and it installed smoothly.

    I presume the improvements are behind the scenes, although with the HTC sense overlay, I'm sure most changes aren't overly apparent.

    I got my DZ from CPW BTW so it was unbranded - do our UK carriers brand the Android phones do you know (as I'm hoping to get Samsung Galaxy S2 next month as it's upgrade time with Orange).

    Mine's unbranded too, I bought it from Amazon sim-free.

    My contract is up (Orange) in November, and I'm in no hurry to get a new one. I may just go sim-only until the next generation (post-Galaxy S2/Sensation) of mobiles hits our shores.

    I got my Gingerbread update as well today in the UK - and it identifies itself as v. 2.3.3

    BUT no update for my HTC Desire ...

    The G2 is a version ahead of the DZ due to it running vanilla Android. The DZ update is to 2.3.3.

    If you get the phone directly from Orange it will be branded/network locked. Not a major problem with the GS2 though... the bootloader is unlocked so a stock unbranded firmware can be flashed to debrand it without the need for rooting.

    Can you quote me the build number and kernel string from "About phone", please? I like keeping track of this sort of thing. :)

    No OTA, but it's available for download on the HTC support site.

    Software # is 2.42.405.2

    Kernel # is 2.6.35.10-g7b95729

    there's a couple more lines I can pass on if you need them

    I have downloaded a large file HTC_Desire_Android_2.3_Upgrade.zip but I'm biding my time before using it as I want to make sure I have backed up everything first. Despite uninstalling various apps (and the Facebook and Maps updates), and switching others to the SD card, I can still get low memory warnings - very frustrating for otherwise is a good phone. :( Whether Gingerbread will make a difference ...
