Anyone know anything about this or what it includes?
Edit: forgot to add, I'm on o2 UK.
None for me
Orange stock rom 2.2
Very misleading thread title.
Yes could you please edit the title to include o2? Double click just to the right of the title on the forum page
Sorry - new to these forums. Hope I've altered the thread title correctly.
As it happens I've just looked at my software info on my O2 UK Desire, as I was sure that I was running Android Version 2.2.
I am, and I am also running "Software number" 18.104.22.168, so I assume this OTA System update is an update to that rather than the Android Version?
What's the difference between these two?
And what are the Baseband version and the Kernel version?
I'm a bit of a confused noob!
Yes, it will be Android 2.2. That "Software Number" identifies exactly which Android+HTC Sense combination, so it will denote this specific O2 ROM. An OTA update can update the android version, but if it has it'll be a minor revision (i.e. not 2.3).
Baseband is the radio firmware version, i.e. the software which controls the hardware for cellular connections, mobile data, WiFi, bluetooth, GPS.
Kernel is the "core" of the OS - sits between the hardware and the applications.
Any and all of these can be updated separately, so an update may or may not have changed them.
I have updated my 02 desire after reading this, not sure if anything has changed though ! I am getting pretty pissed off with the txt delivery off my phone just latley, my wife can txt me at 22.00 from work , i dont get it , turn the phone to airplane mode when i go to bed around midnight. Her txt comes usually around ten or twelve the next day , im not sure if its the phone or 02 !
i got the same message for my o2 desire on 2.2 - but im not installing any of the ota updates at the mo as last time i did it i had to then factory reset my phone because of so many force closes
I just installed mine. I'll post any changes I notice here, but so far nothing I noticed...
I don't get it ??? I'm on O2 but my software version is already alot higher than that.....2.29.405.5
**Edit** My phone is unbranded though, so I presume that the update is for O2 branded HTC Desires ?
that's right. you're the luckier one!
I updated last night. The only noticeable differences is that in the 'Market'; instead of the green border being stationary when scrolling, it is now moved along with the menu. If i see any newer features, I'll let you know.
Just updated to this, anyone that was previously having restart issues has this update made any difference?
Blimey, how many software versions are there???
I got my Desire sim free - unbranded - and it's running 2.29.405.5
I presume branded phones are slower in getting updates (due to the network having their wicked way first...
