    Wow did you do some kissing up for $5? Wish I had done that. And no idea about the Telus update, I'm waiting on the Telus OTA update myself but knowing Telus well, they're really slow on OS updates (their Blackberry OS5 release proved that). I'd be surprised if the Desire got it at the end of Sept, I read a forum post somewhere from a Telus rep that sometimes this fall.

    As Androidin said, follow the instructions EXACTLY as posted in this thread and you won't have any problems:

    http://androidforums.com/htc-desire/148932-froyo-ruu-update-available.html

    It includes drivers for both AMOLED and S-LCD screens. I used it to flash my Telus Desire with S-LCD screen and it works great!
    :D

    Is it possible to flash back to a stock telus after doing this? Just in case one needs to make a warranty claim. I've noticed there's a bunch of stock carrier RUUs out there, but no Telus. Is it possible to make my own ROM image of the current stock telus firmware?

    I don't think there are any Telus RUUs and you cannot make a stock ROM yourself. HTC is very unlikely to care as long as an official unmodified ROM is installed, but you should probably check with Telus if they'll honour a warranty if the phone has official but unbranded software installed.

    Telus will not honour the waranty if the phone is rooted... The official update is due in october for telus... I think it's worth the wait. :cool:

    I was told to expect the update in late November :mad: Isn't Gingerbread supposed to release around then? We will be out of date already by the time we receive this update OTA.

    I said an official unmodified release, not a rooted release... The manufacturer's warranty is almost certainly still intact if you flash an official ROM, but Telus might argue.

    So they say. There's no official word on when the update will be released by Telus. I've heard varying reports about it being released in sept/oct/nov and even Q1 of 2011! Thing is, there's very little branding by telus anyway, and it should be easy for them to roll out an update, but from past experience with telus, I wouldn't count on them doing this anytime soon. Also, as teppic pointed out, this is not rooting the phone. We're installing official HTC sanctioned software, so there really should not be a valid reason for them to not honour the warranty (or so I hope!). Also, this makes more sense in the long term as well, being able to update to the latest HTC version of android, as opposed to waiting months for the carrier to roll out their version.

    I've spoken with multiple Telus Reps saying the Warranty "will" be voided if you Root your phone. It was funny as the one I talked too was rooting his own HTC Hero to 2.2 as he was still on 1.5 or 1.6 haha.

    Why do people keep saying "root" when we're talking about the official HTC firmware?? Flashing this firmware does NOT root the phone, I repeat, it DOES NOT root the phone.

    Let me stress that one more time, it DOES NOT root the phone!!

    Did I mention it doesn't root the phone?
    :p

    That's great...but it might still have restrictions, like removing tethering, 2G/EDGE data, or others. If you don't mind waiting and you're on Telus, then it might be fine to see what they release. But I'd rather have a generic version that has nothing added/removed.
    :D
    On another note, did you see this on the website:

    "Important notice: Due to paperless billing’s popularity, we’re delaying the $2/mo. paper bill charge until further notice so more clients can switch."

    What a crock...spin doctors at work there making it sound like paperless billing is a great thing and it's so popular that they can't keep up with the switch. Hahaha...
