    Hi, first thread on the site :)

    Ok, so for my birthday I asked my parents for a new phone, specifically a HTC Desire because I'm a gamer so obviously I wanted a phone with an awesome processor. But at the time of my birthday I got a HTC Wildfire (apperently the Desire was sold out at every store my dad went to). Now there's nothing wrong with the Wildfire. The battery life is great and it doesn't take to much space in my pocket but I felt a little bit disappointed when I checked out the market. The games I found were at the same level as the games I had on my old phone, a Sony Ericsson K550i. Also, when I checked Youtube and various other websites for game tips I couldn't find them. For example Buka, Robo Defense, ToonWarz, Speed Forge 3D etc etc. Is this because they are not available for the Wildfire because of the 589 mhz processor? If that is the case, will the maybe be available when the 2.2 update arrives (with the processor speed up)? Or do I need to download them from a specific site because all the games I find on the market are free.

    Thank you for your time :)

    Unfortunately because the wildfire has no gpu and a low res screen decent games will not run on the wildfire. I found q version of asphalt5 which said that my device was not supported. The only way that may get games running better on the wildfire would be to root and over clock but that could break your device and I am not responsible if it does. When 2.2 is released, games wil run a bit faster due to the fact that 2.2 has a better java compiler. Note that the wildfire will not get flash 10.1 because of the CPU and the reason you can't find any games is because of the screen res being too low

    Oh and the processor is 528 MHz not 589

    But if I overclock and root my phone, can I download games that I couldn't download from the market from other sites? Or does the "blockage" still exist, if you know :)

    The wildfire already has flash if you look in manage applications you can see the flash player is in there :p

    If you go to Settings>Applications then tick 'Unknown Sources' you can download apps from sources other than the market. You dont have to root to do this.

    P.s. some mobile operators disables this
    p.p.s. but mine's SIM free so...

    Hmm , Try putting .jar files in your phone .
    Now go to the java app , click on SD card .
    Now press the menu button , and click on SD card . The phone will search your card for .jar files , and click to install .

    Note : 240x320 apps will only work .

    .jar files dont work on android.
    on android the installer files are .apk files (android package files)
