O2 tries again for the HTC Desire Froyo Android 2.2 update

O2 has second stab at HTC Desire Froyo Android 2.2 update

With their first attempt to roll out the Android HTC Desire Froyo 2.2 update rapidly turning into a fiasco with the upgrade being withdrawn due to  “potential freezing issues,” O2 are trying again.

Take Two for 2.2

The first update went out in the beginning of September, so there’s been some wait for O2 customers while the company figured out what went wrong.

It seems that the company has now started to roll out the 2.2 update again, and it should be worth the wait too, with the Froyo OS introducing several  new features including HD video recording and improved speeds.

OTA update

The update is an OTA (over the air) job, and weighs in at 90.93MB download, so we’d recommend hooking up to a wi-fi connection first and making sure your phone is fully charged.

If you haven’t already been notified on your handset, go to Settings > About Phone > System Software Updates > Check Now, and you should get a message telling you that the Android 2.2 is ready to download.

Don’t expect to see the update instantly, as some of these OTA updates can take an age – as many of our mightily miffed Orange users will grumpily testify.
