    Htc And Wildfire -- Engadget

    "It's summer. It's hot. Naturally, everyone wants to lick some frozen dessert in one form or another. Shortly after the Nexus One got its absolutely official Android 2.2 update, HTC has once again leaped out to tell us of its own Froyo offering. The Taiwanese mobile giant has informed Recombu that it's expecting "several of our 2010 models including Desire, Legend and Wildfire" to join Google's latest green bot party "beginning in Q3." We went to the trouble of confirming this with HTC ourselves, and while this isn't really much of an update from the company's previous statement in terms of time frame, here's hoping that at least some of its customers will get the delivery before the summer fiesta ends.

    I'm new to android - recently got a Legend which is unfortunately branded with Vodafones stuff.

    It's great to hear that the Legend should be getting 2.2 soonish, but as I understand it I will have to wait for Vodafone to make the 2.2 update available (and there's no guarantee they will at alll).

    If I rooted my Legend would I then be able to update it with 2.2 (once HTC themselves have make it available of course)? And if so, would the update (and future updates) appear on my phone under "System software updates" ?

    No need to actually root your phone. Just make a "gold card" and flash the standard HTC rom (you're basically just debranding your phone). It should then update when HTC release any updates and you won't be reliant on vodafone :)
