    HTC Desire
    2.1 - update 1
    Not rooted.
    Telstra
    (Still under warranty)


    Ok, I have tried - and failed - to update to 2.2.

    That's another story.

    Before, I would plug the phone in to the computer - USB - and select Internet sharing. No worries. No other messages, no other stuff. Just what I said.

    Now, when I plug the phone into the USB cable, it asks me what to do, but I get a "warning" about USB DEBUGGING IS ACTIVE and the SMS messge tone is played.

    I don't know if this came about because I was trying to have/get the phone updated, becuase I was using (or make that TRYING to use) HTC Sync to backup my data to the computer, or what.....?

    It isn't a big deal, but I am wondering what has changed to make it do that when it didn't used to.

    Any ideas?

    I think USB debugging has to be active to sync the phone.
    Because it's not as secure as normal you get a warning, but you can disable USB debugging and that'll get rid of the message.
    Just have to turn it back on again when you want to sync again.

    I run with USB debugging on all the time and no problems (I loaded a custom ROM that allows me to hide the warning :) )

    Thanks.

    AFAIK, though I never had it turned off.
