    Hi forum :)
    So I recently updated my htc desire android version 2.2.2-Softwarenumber 2.29.405.14
    , and after the update my phone became painfully slow. especially when browsing trough my gallery. Im sure someone out there has a fix?

    -I have installed apps2d to clear some space,
    -Deleted 'phone only' apps i rarely use.
    -Did a factory reset.

    But it is still slower than a drunken turtle :thinking:

    If anything should of fixed it, it would of been the factory reset.
    I guess since that didn't work you should maybe look at flashing a RUU.

    You mean as in Partioning my sd card to use it as an 'internal' phone memory?

    No, he means obtain and flash an official Rom Upgrade Utility.
    You may as well get the 2.3 version from the HTC dev website

    You may as well considering factory reset removes any chance of it being user data causing the phone to slow down, the RUU is an official Rom Update Utility (I think) edit: yup it does, just re-read SUroots post)
    Which should (in theory) completely sort out your phone.

    My HTC Desire has become unreliable after the 2.2.2 update.

    First my notifications went silent since the update deleted all my custom ringtones and notification sounds from the SD card. Luckily the ringtone falls back to a default so I didn't miss any calls.

    Also now my SMS messages sometimes go to a different person that I have selected from my contacts (by name). ... and I'm not a senile old dude (just to clarify) :p

    Is there any way to reset the phone to some reliable build?
