    Up and running after I manually checked for updates. No branding at all, everything appears to work just fine. Off to see if I can move some apps to the SD card!

    I can confirm also no branding! YAY!

    360 apps gone!
    All the usual froyo niceness! HOORAY

    Oh, did anyone else notice that the options for sound and display are now separate rather then all together?!

    AND 60mb free on the internal memory after moving some apps!

    I also have it installed. Thank goodness. Questions:

    1) how do I move apps to SD card?
    2) Where do i download flash from. I cant seem to navigate to it from the phones browser.
    3) What other froyo features should i expect?

    thanks

    1. The easiest way is to download an app from the market called SDMove. This will automatically find all the apps that can be moved and then all you need to do is click on them to move them over.

    2. It should already be on there. Go to a site like BBC - Homepage and see if a video will play.

    3. Flash lite, rotate the screen all ways apart from upside down, its a lot faster and a lot more stable, can have a number lock instead of pattern, HD video recording...There are many more things, just google it and there will be a comprehensive list somewhere. Have found it really good.

    Welcme to Froyo :D

    There seems to be lots of little enhancements everywhere for usability, for example it is now easier to reply to text messages, there's an app sharing utility and so on. Finding the browser to be quicker too, WiFi hotspot works, had an ipod attached to it and its surprisingly good.

    Not found anything that isn't functioning properly yet. After bad press at the start of the month Vodafone get a thumbs up for delivering what was wanted and on time.

    The hotspot can be used by several wireless devices, subject to the available bandwidth.

    It uses your mobile internet connection and can be used over several connections.

    USB tethering can also use WIFI.

    Does anyone know if the Vodafone 2.2 update has truly removed Branding or if it still leaves the phone as "branded" but just hasn't actually put any branding on it... if you see what I mean?

    ie - once done will the next update run when HTC release the unbranded update or will we again have to wait for VF?

    Will still have to wait for the voda "optimised" version of any firmware, but it is debranded in so much as the bloatware has gone as has the boot splash screen. The Voda scene is still there so were back to how they came originally, albeit with some 2.2 froyo goodness added :p

    It will be a Vodafone ROM (rather than the 'vanilla' HTC ROM)

    Yes it will be a vodafone ROM with all their APN's added etc but it will have none of the 360 rubbish in there.

    If the Vodafone Splash screen has gone then they have obviously listened to the outrage of their customers for once.

    I debranded mine a while ago but my girlfriend is still on 2.1 so will be updating hers tonight :D

    Its sad but my favourite thing from the upgrade is the simple number lock and not that pattern thing :) Oh and its much much much faster and smoother.

    Yes, but they are still going to add the 360 stuff back in later, and I bet most people (not on here, I'd expect) will see the next update and do it - then regret it!

    Jon, yes there will be another update with the branding stuff in, they already said that. They said it will be optional and I think un-installable too ?

    Having it on Market is the way it should be, especially when they hope the services will be used by non-Vodafone customers (in reality, I can't see what they have over other stuff; hence why VF360 was such a disaster).

    I see no reason to do any sort of update OTA to add it, when people won't know what the update is but will feel they should/most install it.

    Of course, Vodafone can't be seen to have messed up 360 even though most people could see it was pointless and wondered why VF wanted to be like Nokia and start doing its own services. How many people are really going to download the apps voluntarily?

    I've just installed this update and had my SMSs wiped. I'm trying to restore the backup but cannot find any way of doing it, has the privacy tab that houses the backup settings in the settings panel disappeared for everyone else too?
