    As they are meant to be rolling this out has anyone, regardless of country, got it yet.

    I wonder if it is staggered by time if putting clock forward would trick the system

    True but just remember that only a few people will get it and they might not ever go on forums so you may not get it till next week give it a few days maybe someone will write that they have it we hope :)

    Only people who bought unlocked Desires are getting this. If you're locked to a carrier, they're going to want to do more tests to make sure their crap addons don't screw up your user experience (oh the irony).

    I rooted to get rid of their crap though.

    They are the best way to go, although a few places give you the same phone on contract to a carrier so you get your discount

    I estimate there are 6 or 7 threads on this topic already. Will everyone please use the official thread? It's there for a reason. When people start getting it I'm sure you'll hear about it there.

    The problem with the official thread is that it has for many many weeks been hijacked by rooting questions, so proper questions don't get answered.

    UK with an unlocked Desire, on 3 and still no update here OP. I wonder how much of a strain it will be on their servers having everyone click check for updates every 5 minutes? I find myself doing it several times an hour.....lol

    Get real. Most here are quite excited about an update and probably under the age of 25. We're all (without exception) complete geeks or we wouldn't be here in the first place...

    FWIW i haven't had the update yet but i'll be checking again in five minutes then first thing when i wake up before i feed the baby. And I may start an 'unofficial' thread if i get VERY excited.

    HTC manufacturers are about 9 hours ahead of us so they are coming up to Sunday 9am there. No idea if they work Sundays. If they were based in UK we would have zippo chance :)

    I hate the internet for announcements as I'm a very impatient happy, a character floor I know.

    Apparently anybody who chooses an Android phone over an Iphone is a complete geek anyway so you're not alone, and I set the alarm for 4AM so I could do a quick check for updates then - doesn't beat checking before feeding the baby though....!

    Yeah, not looking good. Find it hard to imagine them releasing anything on Sunday. If I was releasing a massive update I would want lots of staff available, especially on support, so to release it on Sunday when I have no one working seems a little silly.

    Actually 8 hours ahead of us, I made a mistake before. Still looks unlikely for update today though now.

    Can anyone confirm the update to Froyo allows you to create a wifi hotspot that can be used for tethering? ..Just checked and still no update here in the UK

    Cheers
