    My mate has a O2 desire in the uk and OTA update is not available for him.His software version is 1.20.207.3

    I have been told that if he wants the offical ROM, then he has to debrand and and install a stock ROM. Is this correct?

    But what about if he wants a custom ROM? Can he simple root via unrevoked and change ROM via ROM Manager?

    thanks guys

    Thanks, thats good to hear.

    Yes, the 2nd option dowes seem to be the best as it also easier.

    Lastly, can he root straight away or does he have to debrand? And are there any rooted stock 2.2 ROMS available yet? Ive noticed that there are many custom ROMS but he wants a standard version.

    thanks again

    He can root straight away, there is a standard version of the new official froyo rom that has been rooted & made available already.

    Thank you, i have asked on that thread but no reply.

    Is that a standard ROM or has the dev made any changes to it?

    If its standard, i presume i can just upgrade via ROM manager and wont need to do a full wipe?

    thanks mate

    You should have no problems upgrading using the rom manager, that automatically does the wipes etc so do a titanium back up to be sure not to lose anything

    Your phone must be an unbranded one then.

    then your phone is not branded, those on o2 who are running branded phones will have to wait till o2 release their own tweaked version of froyo, unless they unbrand their own phones. same goes for the other operators.

    Oh no, can't believe us O2 users have to wait for O2 to push this update out. Considering how long it took them to release the actual phone due to "testing" which actually turned out to simply be an O2 splash screen and some bookmarks this is really bad news.
