HTC Desire gets Gingerbread update

HTC has put up the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Desire handset but as manual update. Currently, none of the users will be getting over the air update unless HTC plans otherwise.

After bit of hesitation, HTC has now rolled out the 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Desire handsets. This update is compatible to all regions except for the users in North America, South Korea, Japan and Germany.

Back in May, we reported that the HTC Desire will get update after the end of July. The new Android Gingerbread for HTC Desire measures beefy 163 and is available through developer.htc.com.

Back in June, HTC had put up a message on Facebook that its Desire handset will not get the Android Gingerbread update. The HTC’s engineering team cited that memory limitation as the chief issue that hindered the possibility of Android Gingerbread update whereas the HTC Desire had 512MB and 576MB RAM.

It was surprising because the Android Gingerbread update was being promised for devices with similar or less memory. In the end, here is the update for the HTC Desire.

Users have to manually download the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update unto their HTC Desire, transfer it to the memory/storage card and then install the update – it is not as easy as it sounds though.

Even before you start any such process, we recommend you to back up all the data and applications using Apps like Astro File Manager or Titanium Backup. The new Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for HTC Desire wipes all data from the device.
