manual install 2.2 update


i've debranded my desire from vf and now i have 1.21.405.2

will the manual install of the 2.2 will erase any of my content: mail, sms, contacts, app and so on?

On the HTC website it says about the 2.2 OTA update that:

i manually updated to 2.2 and my settings, apps and widgets were all still OK afterwards.

however, i cannot guarantee that the same will happen for you.

Sure it's been asked fact I know it has, but I don't know the answer... is there a way to unbrand from Vodafone after the latest bloatware update? (without rooting, so that it then acts like a proper unbranded unit and takes OTA updates)?
