Froyo, The Android 2.2 Update Arrives At Last!

Well, I checked the settings on my HTC Desire, and at last it said that the Android 2.2 update, Froyo, was ready to download!

It all seems to have worked ok, apart from my custom keyboard, the imod version that allows voice input, has stopped working. This isn't a problem as the updated Froyo keyboard includes voice input as standard.

What I've done so far is to transfer a few apps to my SD card, which has freed up plenty of phone memory. I've played around with the mobile hotspot option, and had a quick go with the new browser.

Everything seems a little smoother and quicker, so i will have to see how it goes over the next couple of weeks and come back with a video.

Thanks, Rob.

Ps T-mobile why did it take so long?


  1. it took this long because they really needed to give us those extra cr@ppy apps of theirs. Which will actually make me install a custom (or should I say "clean"?) ROM. "thanks" tmobile. damn idiots, really

  2. Hey Rob, just wondering whether your phone still connects to wifi after the froyo update. Mine - and judging by the huge amount of google hits about this problem, tons of others as well - does not anymore. The only network it still accepts is the one i have at home, other networks and public hotspots are impossbile. The phone is "attempting to obtain IP address" endlessly.... HTC customer service is of no holp whatsoever.

  3. Hi,

    I'll have to try it out. My phone connects OK to our home network, but I haven't tried any other wi-fi hotspots.

    I'll report back with any findings!

    Cheers, Rob.
