    My time with my Desire is coming to an end...

    I'm going to lend this phone to a friend to get used to Android before they get their own one. Where can I find a stock, UK, htc sense Froyo rom?

    Thanks.

    Well yes, that's what I would do but it's not quite 'stock' as it's not how the phone was new, even though it is official htc & covered by warranty.

    I totally agree with you Shauny. All I'm thinking is when I bought my desire it was running eclair which I upgraded to froyo. I rooted but had to send it back for a warranty repair, so I ran the gingerbread RUU. When it was returned to me with a new mainboard it was back to froyo. So it depends whether you want HTC stock or 'out of the box' stock. To be fair Dibs didn't specify.

    Either way, thing to check is that (a) the network branding (if any) corresponds to the original phone, and (b) it either says "Froyo" or the radio has "_5." in the string - anything "_4" is Eclair, and it would be perverse to install that!

    Also, check it says "RUU" at the start of the name, not "OTA".

    But as to which, actually why not the 2.3 upgrade? If it's so the friend can get used to Android before buying their own, they certainly aren't going to be buying Froyo. Of course using any sort of stock is also getting them used to HTC Sense as well as Android.

    Thanks folks.

    I bought the phone sim free, so don't have to worry about getting it back to 'branded'.

    I'll have a look at the Gingerbread rom, as i'd rather go to that than Froyo.

    Mind you, and might let him try this Mildwild ROM first...

    Cheers.
