    Hi for some reason there is an announcement on the HTC website that there is an update for Android 2.3 for HTC Desire HD.

    I went to do it manually in settings => About Phone
    I click on check manually.. No updates...

    My mobile is UK Sim Free.. Any network..

    I don't understand why its saying there is an update yet I am unable to update my Mobile..

    Please can some one point me in the correct direction..

    Thanks..

    Same for me. I think the update depends on the htc desire network waiting for them to publish it for all desire owners. But i could be wrong.

    "http://www.htc.com/uk/support.aspx

    The new Software number will be 2.29.405.2

    I am using an O2 simcard.

    I am new to Android.. I never knew a mobile could do so much..
    What's all this hype about gingerbread I have been reading..

    I mean.. Its supposed to be in the 2.3 for the nexus..
    Is it in the 2.3 for the HD

    Also.. I wanted to ask.. Because I can always send this back and get a nexus..
    Overall the specs in performance for the HTC say 1GHZ and 768MB mem...
    How can the nexus be faster with only 512 ram?
    Is it the exclusive release of gingerbread that makes it a better mobile..
    I ain't that bothered about the sensors and that.. I mean.. Who uses them anyway..
    I love apps and want it to be really smooth..

    I've just looked around on Google for that software version, and there are hundreds of Normal Desire, not Desire HD users who have received this update. I think its a HTC Typo

    Yeah I'm running Android 2.2

    I doubt its a typo.. They have it defined a few times..
    So it should be the new update right?

    At last, I thought, an upgrade that I can do on my own, so I tried putting gingerbread on my Desire HD today. But it looked very odd and I couldn't see the point of it, so took it off again - I was mainly worried about crumbs getting in the works. I'm wondering whether honeycomb will be any better - will a Crunchie work ok or does the chocolate mess things up?

    Hey guys calm down.

    It's impossible to get Android 2.3 update so soon. Take it easy :)

    I think it's gonna take ages. Vodafone AU is extremely slow for the OTAs. I just got 2.2.1 couple of days back on my N1. Waiting for 2.3 now...:D:D

    Just like to say... 2.3 isn't out yet.. LOL. Nexus One will be having some tasty gingerbread soon.

    We will probably get it around March time as it will take some time to get Sense on.
