    An update came through the other day on my debranded Orange Desire.

    Anyway it has killed the Wifi.

    I've seen a thread on here about an RUU update?? That fixed it, but no explanation as to what this is or how it was done.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Thanks,

    So it looks like flashing back to the previous firmware is the only fix at the moment?

    As I understand it you need to ask Orange - or get it from a website - for the code which "lets you use your Desire on any other network".

    You can reflash your phone to the rom you flashed in the first place, i did it twice before i decided to unlock the phone & apply the update.
    It just means you do exactly the same steps as you did when you debranded

    Yes, exactly :)

    I've just debranded mine btw and not run into this issue, but I'm not going to accept the 1.21 update unless installing the HTC generic ROM has not fixed my primary data issues.

    OK, I have reflashed my Desire using a guide I found online, it is now in the original state it was after I debranded it previous to the OTA update that fooked the WiFi.

    I will see about unlocking when I have more petty cash lying around, being a poor student and all haha.

    I've debranded, rooted and SIM unlocked my Desire but I'm still running 1.15 - if I accept the OTA update to 1.21 (or further updates), will that 'unroot' the phone? Is unrooting even possible or is it permanent once it's been done?

    My wife has a de-branded orange desire, it has also been sim unlocked but the ota upgrade came thru today which she installed and has now lost wi-fi, so I guess the above comment about sim unlock is untrue.

    Will I have to downgrade it to previous state or can I find a froyo rom and use that?

    My handset is a debranded orange one also unlocked, i did the ota upgrade no problem.
    Did you remember to have the goldcard in the phone when you did the ota upgrade?

    if you leave the gold card in for the ota upgrade does that stop the wifi being knocked out for certain as i sent my first phone back when that happened
