HTC Desire HD and Incredible S Android 2.3 Gingerbread going OTA now

May 4, 2011
251

HTC has confirmed it is pushing out the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the HTC Desire HD and HTC Incredible S. The OTA update will be flagged up with a message on the smartphones themselves, and bring the handsets up to speed with newer HTC devices like the HTC Desire S.

Of course you'll still have HTC Sense and all the usual apps, but we're expecting a little extra speed and stability thanks to the joys of Gingerbread. HTC advises backing up your phone before you upgrade, though it's not clear if the update will actually wipe your phone in the process.

We're checking our Desire HD now and will report back when we find out more. Let us know how you get on in the comments!

Update – HTC Desire HD Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) update

Your phone will receive a notification of FOTA update when it is made available. Simply press OK to accept the update via a data connection such as Wi-Fi or GPRS/3G. After installing the update, you can confirm a successful update by confirming the Build number (From the Home Screen go to MENU> Settings> About Phone> Software Information> Software number). The new Build number after the update will be 2.36.405.5. Update: Android 2.3 upgrade. Note:Please back up your data first before upgrading your phone. We recommend using a free Wi-Fi hotspot or an unlimited data plan to apply this update. If not, standard data connection charges may apply.

    Just got the OTA update for my HTC Desire HD. I’m in Germany and Vodafone’s my carrier. The update is NOT 2.3.4 but 2.3.3.

    Major changes after the 100MB OTA update were the applications which are now categorised into All Apps, Favotires and Downloaded.

    The notifications pull-down menu now includes 2 tabs at the bottom, one for notifications and the other for quick settings which feature toggle buttons for Wifi/Bluetooth/Wifi Hotspot/GPS and Mobile Network. It also has a link to All Settings.

    In the All Apps menu, the page is no longer freely-scrollable. The apps are gridded and separated to pages of 4×4 app icons per page and separated by a gentle gray line.

    In the settings, the about phone section features a new (at least I haven’t noticed it in the past) button called “Tell HTC” which enables error reporting to HTC.

    A large number of the HTC Hub widgets and HTC Apps/Plugin (Picasa/Media Link, etc) require updates which are already available after a simple click on the HTC Hub app.

    That’s all the major changes I found in my 2 minutes play around with the updated phone. At frist it seemed a bit laggy. Which fixed itself after I installed all required updates (HTC Hub/Apps) and restarted the phone.

    • Mike

      Odd. The HTC support pages say it’s V2.36.405.5…

      Still no sign of it here in the UK though :(

    • mk

      It seems that since the update the call quality deteriorated significantly and there are a lot of lost calls and interruptions at A1 (Austria). The update itself, like well described above, looks good, but if it is for the sake of bad telefon-quality, i would have evaded it.

        I contacted HTC regarding update for unbranded Incredible S and Desire HD in the UK and here what I got:

        ‘Thank you for contacting HTC regarding your HTC Incredible S.

        I can confirm that the Gingerbread update has been released for the unbranded devices. However as you can appreciate the update cannot be sent to all mobile devices at the same time therefore I believe you will receive the update within approximately 2 weeks.

        I hope that this helps.

        If you have any further queries or problems please do not hesitate to contact us again.

        Many thanks

      for all those seeking for updates pls be reminded that you are entering your phone to a great disaster froyo is much better indeed somes are great like sound be equalized mature black themes but equivallent to that is much more more many application is very unstable gameloft games,wifi,battery shortened so i suggest to sticked in froyo until all the technical issues resolved…

  • incredible s owner

    I have unlocked incredible s in red color, i tried update but i got the message saying it’s up to date (android 2.2.1) so i emailed htc and asked them about it, and i got a reply from them.

    “The updates for the phones are not being released for all units at one
    time but the phones are being in queue under their serial numbers. I
    recommend you to set up your phone for scheduled check of update so you
    will receive notification immediately when the update is available for
    your device.”

    shouldn’t unlocked phones to be the first ones who should get update first?

      • Ian

        From what I’ve read on other forums, the updates are released in batches, by serial number. It can take up to a month to update all of the phones in a country. Also some networks are quicker getting the release out than others depending on how much ‘tweaking’ they want to do ( adding their own logos etc.).
        Still no sign of it on my UK Orange branded phone.

    It have arrived to Sweden, but i still don´t recieved an update yet and its frustrating! (And yeah, im also from sweden) 

  • Richie

    I’ve just downloaded it here in Ireland, have to say i’m not really sure what all the fuss is about, it’s only a slight tweek to the UI and a few bits here and there but nothing really significant to get worked up about…Remains to be seen if it improves the Battery life on my DHD as i only have it now about an hour or so! Although it does run more smoothly…All in all from the time that you start to download the update to the time that the phone is ready for use it takes about twenty minuts. The download done over a data connection, for most of the download it had a 3G connection! …but to anyone who is still waiting in anticipation like i was, trust me it’s certainly not gonna blow your mind…Maybe i just had too high an expectation!?

    • Richie

      …Also you don’t have to back up your phone before updating, at least i didn’t anyway, everything was as i left it before the update! 

      • Richie

        I went outside and checked for it in the Check for updates section under settings…You ahould have it by now!

      • Richie

        WiFi not working, cuts in and out. Battery life is exactly the same, Very dissapointed! Also not sure if it’s a problem with the netwaork or what but i seem to get dropped data connection more frequently than before i got the update! The only plus is that it isn’t as laggy, but that’s only saying it isn’t “AS” laggy as before.

    Just got the update last night. It’s 2.36.405.8 (not .6), and there are no issues after updating. wifi works as always.
    I’m from Israel

    • Ami Aviel

      Hi,
      I’m from Israel too, is your phone branded for Three UK ?,  because I didnt get the update yet.
      What can you tell about your phone speen, battery etc. after the update ?

      • Adunsky

        My phone is not branded, yet purchased in the UK.
        I haven’t noticed any speed change. It seems to be working very much at the same speed as with Froyo (which is very good).
        As for the battery: I’m not sure. I never take to “the extreme”. I have a charger in my car and in my office, and when I’m at either, I’m recharging it.

      • Ami Aviel

        Thank you for your response, enjoy your phone, I hope I will get the update sometime…

    Im on 3uk, update came through last night, it seems to have made my ringtones a lot louder which is good because i always thought they were very quiet. The screen seems more vivid too although i could just be imagining this.

  • Craig

    Update came through today in Australia for an Incredible S purchased in Hong Kong.

  • Nirkus

    • Nirkus

      HTC support just told me OTA updates are made available in daily chunks based on IMEI number..

  • Guest

    Still no update for HTC Desire HD in India.

  • ab

    Also in India waiting for update for Desire HD. Does anyone know if there is a update order by country?

    • Amit

      It has been said several times throughout this cluster, that HTC is making this update available in daily chunks based on IMEI number, and not by countries.

    HAPPY UPDATING TO ALL OF YOU THERE………WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR…….???

  • RK

      So far Picassa APP is not working. had to erased it. 

  • Arun

    got d update 2 days back (mumbai India ) . other than quick setting option n minor change to aapp drawer I don’t find any noticable difference . I wish HTC gave those gingerbreadish fluroscent status bar icons. Homerun 3d still lags n even crashes which is disappointing for a device that’s branded HD !

    When does the update for the Desire HD come to Singapore??

  • Abhishek

    My HTC DESIRE HD got 2.3  upgrade :) 

    • Samykai

      how did u get it?

  • Dan

    Got the update 2.3 for HTC Desire HD in Chennai now…Insallation is going on :-)

  • Omer

    Incredible S upgraded to Gingerbread 2.3.3

    Systems fonts have become bigger, destroying the interface, just looks ugly. Major disappointment, interface looks ugly. why have such a high res screen if you have to increase the font size so tastelessly

    WiFi issue, it just disappears.

  • tw

    taiwan can’t wait !!!!!!!

  • Adnan

    is any1 else experiencing the wifi issue… it just stops scanning in like a second and doesnt connect to the wifi…

    • Adrian

      Yep. Im experiencing this. It says its connected and shows the wifi signal strength but i cannot use the internet at all whilst connected to the wifi and says that the connection failed

    • Hasankazim

      I am also facing the same issue. Gingerbread sucks!

  • tw version

    good ! finally i got it ! , updating now !!!

  • Mitch

    I’m in Australia and have the HTC Incredible S on the Optus Network, which came shipped with the Gingerbread version 2.3. Got OS but referring to Adnan, I also do have the same problem with connecting to Wi-fi (but only if the router is an N specific one). I heard it may be a bug tha google has to fix, or I will return the phone to Optus.

    I’m just wondering what we can do in order for google or android to repair the problem as my home network is based on an N wireless router. I have even tried changing the broadcast mode, to both G and B, but still no success. Really frustrating. Who knows at the end of the day the NIC could be faulty, not the software of gingerbread. 

    • Mitch

      I have finally overcome the problem, by downloading software from the droid Market. This particular software is called ‘ipconfig’. As people may know, HTC did not include any available settings that enable you to have a static ip address. You simply assign your own IP, and then it works. For some reason, the phone gets confused not enabling it to have an ip assigned to it by the DHCP on the router.

    • Richie

      You should have it by now if your phone is unbranded, i got mine a month ago. if not then it’s up to the  service provider to decide when they will release their version of it…Just to let ye know the updat e is a joke! I get missed calls because of a weak GSM signal, dropped WiFi/Data connection all the time…It’s terrible, if i could go back to 2.3 i would! FULL OF BUGS!! I live in Meath.

      • Richie

        …sorry i meant 2.2!

    • Mike

    HI All,

    I am using HTC Desire HD Mobile, I getting lot of problems, like poor battery life, incoming call volume is low, GPRS problem. I found some of bugs are going to fix in new release. when we can expect in india.

  • Ami Aviel

    Hello everybody,

    I got the update to 2.3.3 three days ago (here in Isarel).
    The speed and respose of the UI is really noticible, also the battery life has grown significantly.
    The only issue is the WIFI (just like many others), well I talked to HTC yesterday and they told me that
    they are aware of the problem and are testing a new patch to fix the WIFI issue and will send it OTA as soon as possible.

  • Direcanuck

  • Kyle J D Robinson

    ive noticed after update my phone has trouble connecting to my home wifi. Before update i would usually hover around 2 or 3 bars in my living room… since update my phone will not display anything over no bars to 1 bar on wifi. it also seems to constantly dropp my wifi connection every 3 or 4 minutes then rescans for wifi and tried to reconnect…. to everyone research before updates.

  • Mumtaz Suk

    Can you please tell me, once we upgrade to ginger bread, can we roll it back to froyo ???? Please reply urgent.
