    How to Flash / Debrand your Desire

    after flashing and 4 OTA updates i just rebooted and i am now running andriod 2.2 on my desire.

    Andriod Version
    2.2

    BaseBand Version
    32.43.00.32U_5.09.00.20

    Kernel Version
    2.6.32.15-gfpc0526
    htc-kernel@and18-2#1

    Build number
    2.09.405.8

    Software number 2.09.405.8

    Browser 3.1

    Think thats it.


    Going to scutinise the phone for the next few days now!!

    1 - Defo good HD 720p (1280 x 720) the quality is nice.
    2 - Speed of the phone and doing thing is better (it was quick anyway)
    3 - New sms app is appealing, works very well.
    4 - Email (push mail to exchange server 2003) is working quickly and so far likes to
    not send emails out of peak time. (given it some heavey testing)
    5 - Browser is quick to load and processes pages quickly (using 3g)
    6 - wifi is much nicer finds, and uses it quickly. I have 7 routers here and connects
    to each one easily.
    7 - bluetooth works a lot better with my Parrot carkit ck3200, ALL contacts now
    sync with photo.
    8 - Battery life seems ok given the amount of hammering it's had from a full charge at
    5pm to now at 01:11 it's got 48% left and thats after the upgrade downloads
    over wifi (30mb) and playing with it. impressive
    9 - Weather shows my town name of Bridlington
    10 - Google maps and Navigation works amazingly - seems to render satellite view
    quicker.
    11 - www.tvcatchup.com works brilliantly due to the Flash 10 player so many
    websites work better now
    12 - I can now view my own website properly - www.VictoriaHouseBridlington.co.uk
    13 - facebook app works so much better and even has an inbox that works
    14 - a number of my apps are on the SD-card, they dont install by default to the SD
    as you dont get a choice, but you can goto - menu / settings / Applications /
    Manage Applications
    you can select the app and move it to the sd card - i presume it the app and
    not the install
    15 - Marketplace works a treat, finds and loads so much quicker
    16 - volume of caller sounds clearer and when on speaker phone too - but not the
    best, thats hardware not software.
    17 - Sky Sports I can now view
    http://live.skysports.com/ScoreCentre/football.html so when in town and the
    wife is shopping i can check the footy scores live - A MASSIVE IMPROVEMENT
    18 - I can do my online banking
    19 - all my contacts phone and email have synced from my exchange server
    20 - Youtube on 3g is bareable, much better than befoe.
    21 - google maps navigation works fine just as expected.
    22 - wifi hotspot - turned it on and bang laptop noticed it connected asked for
    password (which i had not set) but the desire shows a notification and shows
    you the code - simples.
    23 - Flashlights as a std app is cool
    24 - ebay works well too.
    25 - So does msn messenger
    26 - marketplace notified me of an update earlier
    27 - my emails peak/offpeak time is working correctly
    28 - Battery seems to be lasting given the amount of usage i have done.


    to be honest a great upgrade - cant say it was a massive upgrade, but a lot has been fixed, fingers crossed

    Hope this was helpful people


    Still i have no complaints or issues with my t-mobile UK desire on 2.2 absolutley everything works, even my problem with emails coming though out of peak times, which was my only issue with 2.1.
    YES I AM VERY PLEASED
