Telstra HTC Desire – Upgrade to Android 2.2 (Froyo) operating system

leave a comment »

Upgrading your phone operating system = better performance and improvements

Have you upgraded your HTC Desire operating system yet? If not, you will most likely be using version 2.1 of Android (Eclair) and there is a newer version 2.2 now available (Frozen Yoghurt aka Froyo).

If you want to upgrade, and you should, follow these instructions. Note that the whole process takes about 20 mins and will not destroy your data or applications.

  1. Make sure your phone is fully charged.
  2. Make sure you are disconnected from Telstra 3G access, and connected to a wireless connection. If you do not understand what this means, either discuss with your friendly techy friend or follow the alternate instructions below and visit a Telstra Shop.
  3. Click the Menu button on the front of the phone.
  4. Then select Settings, then scroll all the way down and click on About Phone.
  5. Then click on System Software Updates, then click Check Now button.
  6. Follow this instructions from there.

If you can get through all that, well done. If you can’t, you could go to a Telstra shop and ask them to do it for you, but confirm with them that they WILL NOT use your data allowance to do this. The process sucks down about 100 meg of data and could incur high charges if you are using Telstra data and near your limit.

Good Luck,
