HTC Desire :: Debranded And Upgraded Virgin Mobile To Froyo 2.2

Sep 11, 2010

Use this procedure at your own risk. It's based on information i've collected from various sources. If you brick your phone, invalidate your warranty or something else goes wrong then it's down to you. I've provided this procedure for information only. I've been asked by a couple of people for step by step instructions on how I debranded my Virgin Mobile branded HTC Desire and upgraded it to 2.2. From what I can remember I carried out these steps. I've used information collected form various threads on here and elsewhere. Use at your own risk!

It was essentially done in three steps: set up HTC Sync on my PC (Windows 7 64-bit), create the gold card and then update the firmware. You need to do a bit of preparation first - save any photos, etc that are currently on your phone onto your PC using the USB cable and the phone connected in disk drive mode. Make sure your phone is fully charged. Note down the serial number of your HTC Desire (remove battery and it's on the label or select Settings>About Phone>Phone Indentity). You'll need your serial number to download HTC Sync. Also enable USB Debugging in your HTC Desire by ticking the option under Settings > Application > Development (do this on your HTC Desire)...................

HTC Desire :: My Phone Still Branded To Virgin Mobile

Nov 5, 2010

I successfully rooted my phone, its still branded to Virgin Mobile but I want Froyo, can I just use the stock Froyo or does it have to be a custom ROM for me to get 2.2, 2.1 is out dated now and I want the new version and waiting for Virgin is a joke.

HTC Desire : Virgin Mobile Branded Desire & SIM

Sep 3, 2010

I have a Virgin Mobile branded HTC Desire with a Virgin Mobile SIM card.The handset was purchased outright. The contract is a rolling 30-day contract so I can cancel at any time.I'd like to move to O2 purely for the coverage.How do I go about debranding the handset and (I presume) unlocking it so that I can use an O2 SIM card in it?

General :: Virgin Mobile - Stuck In Bootloop Every Time?

Dec 5, 2013

I froze some Google apps and did a factory reset without unfreezing them. I now get stuck in a boot loop every time I try to start the device. flashing system.img, boot.img, and recovery.img for this phone? I can't do it through the system recovery (power + vol down) because of signature verification. I can't do it through FTM (power + vol up) either. My Supreme is pretty much a brick right now. I only resort to this because I'm unable to rename the .bak to .apk through adb because of a read-only file system. The phone has no fastboot mode, either.

Froyo RUU upgraders only, Home->Settings->Applications->Manage Applications and select the "All" tab and scroll down to find the "Field Test" app and check the version.
Mine, FYI, (upgraded to Froyo via the OTA upgrade), reports
"version 2.1->update1"

HTC Desire :: Get 2.2 Quicker For Debranded Vodafone

Aug 3, 2010

So as expected I got too impatient to wait for Vodafone to officially launch 2.2 so I bit the bullet, debranded the handset and got the update. Im glad I did as I understand that Vodafone have just rolled out a sneaky update loading the handset with rubbish. Thought I would share the experience with my fellow Vodafone users including the guide that I used in order to complete the installation. This turned out to be a very easy process which took around an hour from start to finish inc the 2.2 update and restoring apps etc.

PLEASE READ THIS FULLY BEFORE STARTING THE PROCEDURE

Worked a treat on my handset but as with all these things I can't accept any responsibility for any loss or damage that may occur if you decide to go down the same route that I did. Also please be aware that debranding your handset may invalidate the warranty should anything go wrong. Im not sure whether its possible once 2.2 has been installed to revert back to the old Vodafone Rom (should the phone need to go back to Vodafone for example) so please bear that in mind.........

HTC Desire :: Debranded Orange Handset - WiFi

Sep 21, 2010

I deranged my Orange handset and upgraded to FroYo last night using the method on this site whereby you place the file on your goldcard and reboot your phone in recovery mode (I'm sure someone knows what i mean, although I can't find the thread or explain in more technical detail what I'm on about!). Everything worked perfectly until today when I foolishly did an OTA update without my goldcard in, thus disabling my WiFi capabilities! how I get my WiFi to work again? 2.10.405.2 seems to be the software version I'm currently on.

HTC Desire :: Way To Get T-Mobile Froyo Update?

Sep 18, 2010

T-Mobile have finally released their HTC Sense update for the desire this morning. I've been waiting months for this. Everything seemed to go fine on the update, it auto backed up everything to the sd card and on updating all apps were displayed on the home screens as before. I have a problem now though - my internet browser keeps crashing when loading pages. It displays most of the page and reaches about 95% but then closes back to the home screen. I haven't done much to the phone other than installing apps and it generally worked before the update. Using webkit 3.1 browser and tried pages such as failblog, gizmodo and android forums. Any others with this problem?

HTC Desire :: OTA Updates Stop Wifi On Debranded Phones?

Sep 10, 2010

I know it happens, the update yesterday got mine... Just wondering why this seems to happen? Could it be because my phone is sim locked to Orange, does that mean that I will always need to use a gold card, or will unlocking the phone from Orange solve these update wifi issues?

No Path to Official DROIDX Update Coming from Motorola for Leaked 2.2 Users | Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog Ouch. Honestly, I saw this coming. Ah well. For those who upgraded, and still want the official release, flashing the phone back to stock is not all that hard from what I've read.

I just upgraded to Froyo and when I put the phone in the desktop dock it goes into desktop mode but the screen times out after about 30 seconds.

Aug 1, 2010

I've successfully and smoothly been done to upgrade my Desire to the 2.2 in China. Now I am still having some confusion about what I should get from the 2.2:
1. Do I still have to press the power button to unlock the screen?
2. Why are all the downloaded apps not able to move to SD card (the Move to SD button appears shaded)
3. Is Task Killer necessary as it was before the upgrade?

HTC Desire :: Upgraded To 2.2 Wi-Fi Not Working Properly

Aug 23, 2010

Disclaimer: I've started a new thread as I felt this was distinct enough from 2.2 feedback and different from a similar thread.I upgraded to 2.2 today, did it over my mobile H connection and it all worked fine, no problems to report.Got home and turned the wi-fi on and while it will see all the surround access points, included mine, it won't actually connect to mine. When I go right into the settings and look at what's happening it appears to be unable to get past 'Obtaining Address.Nothing has changed on my wireless setup from this morning when 2.1 connected fine.I've rebooted both the router and the phone and it still doesn't connect. All i've not done yet is a factory reset on the phone, but to be honest i'm loathe to do that unless it's completely necessary.Strangely the wi-fi hotspot feature on the phone is working fine.Can someone please help, this is a major issue for me.

HTC Desire :: Switch On Tethering OR Mobile Hotspot - Mobile Network Dies

Sep 21, 2010

Android Version: 2.2 T-Mobile branded
Network: Base - a brand of e-plus, Germany
Taskiller Used: None
Issue: Switch on tethering OR mobile hotspot ->mobile network dies

I've installed Froyo on a T-Mobile branded Desire. After the update, turning on USB tethering leads to immediate loss of mobile network - it just turns itself off. Same goes for the mobile Wifi hotspot: turn on -> for 2 seconds, it's working -> mobile network drops off. Moving into airplane mode and back brings back the network, but tethering is a goner. With 2.1, USB tethering had worked. I'm on Base, a brand of e-plus. I've talked to their customer services, they say Base absolutely supports tethering.
