HTC Legend Update to Android 2.2 Now Live Across Europe

December 9, 2010

Yesterday, we told you that the HTC Legend, the successor to the original HTC manufactured Hero, would officially be getting updated to Android 2.2 today. And now HTC has officially confirmed the update on their Twitter page. And, better yet, the update isn't said to be for one specific carrier. This time around, the update is live all across Europe.

The update brings the latest edition of the Android 2.2 software to the handset. However, considering Android 2.3 is just around the corner, there's probably a few Legend owners out there biting at the bit to find out when, or even if, their handset will be getting the update to the newest version.

However, Android 2.2 should be a pleasant update for the majority of owners. So, you Legend owners out there, have you updated your handset yet? If you have, let us know what you think of it. Was it worth the wait?

    I updated my legend last week and over the passed few days everything has seemed to have slowed down a lot!! For example it takes about 4 seconds to end a call. Is there something I can do to sort it out?

    @Diana

    What you can try, is pulling the battery out of the device while it is on. The hard reset may help to alleviate the slowness that your device has.

    Hope this helps.

    HTC Legend Updated to Android 2.2 India…

    My HTC Legend auto updated to 2.2 about 3 day’s ago, since than the system is really slow slow slow… it takes about 3 to 5 seconds to access the phone memory when I type in a phone number.. in the past this happened in real time…
    Same for the access to the images when I use. It’s reacts a bit like an old windows operating system with a overloaded HD and lack of internal memory.. And that’s not what I expected from it.. And I am not the only one apparently… so all advise is welcome.

    SLOWSLOWSLOW!! Looking for a downgrade… Damn this thing isn’t working properly at all. Takes me up 2 3sec finding a key on keypad. Thinkin have send the sms pushing the send button. Not reacting at all. Taking a look in the history? Mes sended 3 times.. Opening one of the apps like whatsapp and it always starts in widescreen mode….

    How to fix this? because this is horrible

      Hi guys,

      Ticking the USB Debugging box and conecting the phone to the computer once solves most of the speed problem. To solve it competely you can do a factory reset followed by ticking the USB Debugging box. Obviously, doing a factory reset will delete all you settings.

      Love your phone once again!

    Yeah same with the wifi problem and slowness, it has a problem with some wpa/wpa2 security levels :/ a bit rubbish, the only one i havent had problems with is 2.0!

    Addition of creating a wifi hot spot and moving apps to card storage is great.

    That’s right Andriod 2.2 seems to be creating problem for all the apps, tht use to run perfectly fine before. If anyone finds a solution or how to downgrad to the previous version please suggest. Thanks!!

    My Legend works fine, but I’m unable to get my old startpage, the beautiful orange page with a calenderdate(?) on it, the series of startpages seem to have vanished…

  • Payal

    After upgrading, my Legend became very slow… and sometimes when i try to make calls, the phone rstarts.
    On v2.1, I hangged only once in 8 months, but after upgrading to v2.2, my phone hangs quiet frequently and is very very slow especially while accessing camera, SD Card and manage applications (in settings).

    After upgrading my HTC legend no longer works – continuously says loading and will not do anything. Absolutely ridiculous – had nothing but problems with these so called updates.

    it works nearly perfect. Somethimes bit laggy , but if you wait for the apps reaload , and kill them a bit later with something , than it will be amazing.

    Best phone screen ever. Those colours…. i’ve had some phones , but never seen enything like it.
