Gingerbread Available Officially for HTC Desire (HTC But Only Recommends Upgrading to Expert Users)

Already it Yes. Users of HTC Desire — the erstwhile flagship Taiwanese — have available today from the official update of Android 2.3 Gingerbread to their terminals. But as we suspected, and after a series of disagreements between the manufacturer and its customers (HTC said that there would be no update, users protested, HTC changed his mind), the ROM comes with several shortcomings and explicit recommendation that HTC the install only expert users.

The new update is recommended for expert users who want to experience the Android 2.3. Due to limitations in the device memory, multiple applications in this update have been removed and we only offer the utility ROM (RUU) update for download.

Android 2.3 without customizations

The update is aimed at developers (and we understand that they have planned out a stable version for the average user). You can download from the HTC Developer website and install manually (no OTA).

In addition to restoring the factory settings, this is What we lose with the update to Gingerbread:

  • All the customizations, including applications of the operator
  • All the wallpapers (except the default; others can be downloaded from the same site)
  • Several HTC applications (also downloadable from HTC Developer center)
  • The Official Facebook app (you can download from the Android Market)

The HTC Desire has a processor Snapdragon 1 GHz, 576MB of RAM and 512MB ROM. The question is teeming with various cooked ROM with Gingerbread and HTC Sense living together without too many conflicts, but on HTC do not consider that the hardware of the Desire is compatible with a user experience “ HTC Sense ” full.
