    I emailed them through their website just for the hell of it and this is the reply I got:

    "In regards to updates on the HTC Legend

    At this time there is no information on updates for your device. Any information will be available via are website at www.htc.com/support"

    Not terribly helpful.

    Me, I hate big phones. I have no wish for a Desire or an iPhone.

    The Legend is perfect for me. A little bit bigger than a regular phone, but with smartphone abilities.

    The Legend is easilly the best allrounder on the market, bar none,. Sure there may be better phones for specific needs, but as an allrounder, the Legend is the phone to beat.

    I'm desperate to get Froyo, I have run out of space on my phones internal memory! and the 2.1 Sense bugs are driving me mad. Particularly the countrycode look-up problem, the flakiness of Peep not logging in and the texting app listing back to front.

    It is quite stable, but I've switched back to Rodriguez Style MoDaCoMoD Rom. I missed the htc widgets :)

    U can download from her: How To: Install Flash 10.1 On Android 2.1 Eclair Devices

    Ps: It's works on android 2.1 only, when you install flash 10.1 on froyo the browser will force close.

    I want 2.2 now because I need the option of moving the stored apps to SD card, I've run out of memory!

    Handcent is awesome! 2.1 bugs aren't really that bad & theres generally a way around them, but I deffo recommend ROOTing your phone, it's so much better...Just handles day to day tasks with ease. It looks geeky to DIY, but it's not that hard for an intermediate computer user. Just search for the guides on here, xda forums & at the unlockr.com ;)

    But I need more memory... NOW! :'(

    New twitter message from Mark Moons:

    'Legend eigenaren met trek in bevroren Yoghurt', we zijn jullie niet vergeten, echt niet! (weet dat het lang duurt)

    This translates to: 'Legend owners with a taste for frozen yoghurt, we didn't forget you, really! (know it takes a long time)'

    Sounds pretty clear, you just have to be patient.

    Think it's gonna be with us any day now, the new Legends come out soon with 2.2 so it follows that the update will get pushed out to us soon after.

    what a news.............. thanks however to have reported it.

    same as always, just wait but how much? desire users got it at beginning august, it's almost november and we have nothing except a "we're still thinking about you", obviously no confirmed deadlines at all. I really wonder if someone still really thinks it's taking so much because they want to give us a perfect update....

    Another Legend owner here eager to get updated.

    The HTC Desire is their flagship phone so I guess it would get the updates first with others coming out later.

    Hopefully it won't be too much longer.

    I just got this reply back from HTC support after inquiring about the Froyo update for Legend:

    "Thank you for contacting our Customer Support Center.

    With regards to your inquiry,

    Google has made us aware of an issue affecting updates to Android-powered handsets that result in the Android Market client becoming completely disabled after a platform software update. As a result, HTC has decided to temporarily suspend all current FOTA (Firmware over the Air) updates that upgrade our phones from one Android platform version to another. HTC is committed to providing customers with the best possible user experience. We are working closely with Google to resolve this issue quickly and will resume our programme of updates as soon as this issue is resolved."



    Whatever that means....

    they could tell us that an eventual 2.2 update would cause infertility, or maybe make our head explode

    Hi guys

    This is the latest I got from HTC - literally this morning:




    Regarding your enquiry,

    At the moment the Android 2.2 is not available for the HTC Legend and we haven't information of when and if it will be release, however I can advice to keep an eye on our website for future information about it.

    So it all looks terribly bleak....

    Chill out will ya people.. it's coming... be patient.

    The new coloured Legends are coming very soon and they have 2.2, it follows that an OTA update will come out soon after that.

    So relax..go and do something else.
