    Hi got a new FOTA update for the Wildfire today, maybe worth checking if you have an unbranded model.

    Andrew

    Edit: New firmware version is 1.25.405.1

    I have updated, no problems, and I cannot see any real difference.

    Just got a new wildfire - much enjoyment has come from it.

    Updated to 1.25.405.1 straight away.

    Obviously though this is likely horrific news - if this has just come, I doubt we will see soon (if ever) 2.2 froyo?

    Damn.

    I really wanted WiFi tethering, and Google searches led to 100's of articles saying unlocked Wildfires have 2.2 already! Lies, and wrong I presume? As mine certainly doesn't show anything...


    Still though this new update works fine if anyone wants it. And deletes no data.

    (Would 2.2 reset data if it comes?)


    Oh, and hi everyone

    Android 2.2 for Wildfire is coming, it is supposed to be released in the 4th quarter 2010, so sometime from the end of September onwards

    More likely it's a required firmware update ahead of the OS (Froyo) update.

    I have a Wildfire on 3, and when I go to check for the update, it says my phone is up to date, no update available, current software version is 1.16.771.3

    Any ideas why it won't update?

    Thanks.

    You need an unbranded phone to get the update, 3 will eventually release an update for this in the future

    If your wildfire has 3 branding, it will be down to 3 to release the.update.

    I have an unlocked phone (from CPW) but when I check it says no updates available. Currently firmware version 2.1-update1, software number 1.14.405.2

    Why aren't I getting this update?

    Hi, any idea when users of unlocked Wildfire in India will get the 1.25 update? and is it important for FroYo?

    My wildfire is on 3. I have unbranded it and manually installed 1.25.405.1 works fine.

    Ye me too. It is slightly irritating as I keep thinking that maybe I will also not get the update for Froyo :eek: Sigh

    I just received my wildfire about a week ago. It updated to 2.1 update 1 (1.25) after about a day. I am quite satisfied with it, my old phone is a G1 so this is an upgrade. The wildfire is unbranded (kpn, netherlands). I can't really tell if there's a difference, but I did miss a few things that were there after the upgrade.

    I sent a support email to HTC about this, their reply said...

    "We let out our updates in batches to prevent our servers from beng inundated with over the air updates that need to be sent out. All I can suggest is that you hold on until the update comes through to the phone as your phone will be listed in one of these batches and you will eventually receive the update."

    So it looks like we'll just have to be a bit more patient.

    This seems to be the case...

    When I first read this I checked and it said no updates available. Checked again this morning and there it is OTA_Buzz_HTC_WWE_1.25.405.1.... etc.

    I'll download it tonight as soon as I'm on WiFi.

    BTW how big is the update? would it hammer my data usage to download on 3G?

    Even if this would work on a different phone, it wouldn't be advisable. You would essentially have their phone, their email accounts, sms, contacts - all personal data. For all intents and purposes, you would be them.

    Big no I'm afraid.

    I checked for updates a few days ago, & it said there was a new update to firmware version 1.25.405.1.

    I didn't have time to install it then, so when I went to install it the following day, it now says my phone is up to date. (1.14.161.1) with no offer to install the update?
