Yes, the HTC Desire Gingerbread update is out now, but not exactly in the proper form many were expecting it to be in. This Android 2.3 update is now readily available at the HTC Developer center, which should, more or less, already give you an idea the state this Android upgrade is in right now.
Still willing to give this a shot?
Well, here are a few more things you should know. Upgrading your HTC Desire to Android 2.3 will erase previous customizations, remove all wallpapers (except the default one), delete several HTC apps as well as the Facebook app. Not to worry, though, as the wallpapers and the HTC apps will all be available online for download after upgrading. The Facebook app, meanwhile, can be found at the Android Market.
On a more serious note, they warn Gingerbread-upgraders that “this ROM update is for development only and not for general public use” and “HTC disclaims liability for loss and/or leakage of any personal data resulting form the re-flashing of the ROM.”
Still interested? Yes? Then we salute you for your bravery.
To download the HTC Desire Android 2.3 ROM and read all the other precautions HTC has listed, just head on over here.
Remember, back up first before anything else, and if after upgrading it doesn’t exactly turn up all roses for your HTC Desire, we hate to say it, but you were warned.
