    Android / HTC Desire 'forgot' update

    Got a bit of a strange (and irritating) problem with my Desire at the minute, wondered if anybody else has had it.

    A couple of days ago, a message popped up to tell me there was a system update available for my phone. I chose not to install it as I wasn't in range of a WiFi point. Now, when I try scanning for updates, it says there aren't any!

    Anyone else had this happen?

    It was an O/S update from Vodaphone I believe.

    Have you tried Menu Settings. About phone. System software updates. Check now. ?

    Yep, I'm not aware of any other way to check for updates, is there another way?

    And it's not Vodafone specific as I'm on T-Mobile, don't know what it was to be honest, was busy at the time so I just denied it thinking I'd be able to get it later on, no such luck so far.

    Pretty sure the update that popped up on mine was to 2.33.something too (I'm on 2.10.blah at the minute). Oh well, I think I'm gonna flash it with cyanogen anyway over the weekend

    That sounds like the one I got. I didn't really find out what it did, nothing spectacular.

    Do you have any PC software that you can connect it to?? I had a vodafone update recently (I have a Sony Ericsson X10) and in order to get the update I had to connect to my PC and use the update software from Sony Ericsson's website. You may have something similar for the HTC.

    This should work if there is an update to download. I had one about 3 weeks ago (Desire/Vodafone) which was bug fixes and to improve 720p video recording.

    Not sure about doing this, too worried I might brick it or I might have to send it in for repair in the future.

    Its faster, more reliable and fuller featured than the stock ROM with sense.

    For instance mine went from having 16mb remaining in system memory to 38mb when I'd readded all my apps. and general responsiveness is vastly improved

    new feature include lock screen gesture actions, camera with continuous focus/stabilisation and adding the power control widget to the home screen drop down (which I've found very handy)

    CyanogenMod 6.1 Drops with Camera Fixes, Notification Bar Widgets, and Lock Screen Gestures

    And of course, running cyanogenmod, there will be a Gingerbread build out long before the various UK networks get round to releasing their version.
