    I am stuck here with a problem. How can I update my HTC Wildfire to Android 2.3.3 ? Right now I have 2.1 update 1 (Eclair), but if I check the avilable OTA updates then there is only the old Froyo, 2.2. Froyo doesn't support flash nor the live wallpapers and I don't like this so I'd like to update on 2.3.3 right away, because it is the newest android update and supports live wallpapers and flash.. I live in Estonia (Europe, Baltic Countries) and I have got the Android SDK Mananger revision 10 (newest). I have also downloaded the Android 2.3.3 update.zip file, with what should be possible to update other recovery-supported phones like Nexus One. Or how can I enter to recovery on HTC Wildfire? And will HTC Sense dissapear when I update something?

    How can I do this? Please anserw ASAP!

    there is no 2.3 update for wildfire, the only way currently to get gingerbread is if your phone is rooted and you flash cm7, but this is not a sense rom.
    are you thinking of the resource codes that i heard have been released for wildfire s? different processor/resolution etc so not compatible
    there is an attempt being made to try and port it for wildfire, but no luck as yet, only just managed to get a logcat for it.
