Mobile phone company HTC confirms through Facebook message that those fans with unbranded HTC Legend handsets wont have long to wait for their update to Android 2.2 Froyo. Within the next couple of weeks, owners of the unbranded version of the HTC Legent will have the update, with those people carrying branded versions of the phone (like the Vodafone version, for example,) should be receiving the update after it’s been approved by their chosen carrier.

A message was sent including the following text to fans of HTC on Facebook, info which includes news of the impending update:

We know that a number of you have been very vocal about wanting an update for your Legend. First and foremost, we would like to apologize for not responding to your ongoing pleas about the update. But we have been listening. We have been working hard to find the most accurate information about how the update is progressing, and when it will be ready for all of you – thankfully, you won’t have to wait much longer!

The update has been progressing quite well, and in the coming weeks those with unbranded Legends should be receiving the update.

For those of you with carrier-branded versions of Legend there will be a slightly longer wait,” warns HTC. “Once we finalize the update within HTC, the software must then go through the appropriate approval process at each carrier that supports Legend on their network. This is the same process for all of our handsets, and Legend is no different.

Once our update has been approved by your specific carrier, you should then receive your software update. How long this process takes can vary, but our team is close to finishing the update and will then work with individual carriers for approval.”

    Has anyone got the upgrade on his unbranded Legend ?
    Every time I check it responds that there’s no update for the phone. So I want to know if its only my problem or everyone is facing the same.

    Hi M.Odeh,

    I also haven’t received the update to 2.2 on my unbranded Legend. I heard rumors that they deliver on December 6th. (But currently I don’t find the link).
    I would not bet on it, since HTC has always delays!
    I’m really hope the deliver it soon.


  • December 2nd…still no update. 🙁

    I hope they do this very soon! I want to move a lot of apps to the SD card! heheh

    December 7th 2010, still no update… maybe we there are really NO intention for Froyo updates for our unbranded Legends.

  • Gregg

    2.3 just released and no update yet

  • Mike

    December 15th 2010 in Hongkong, Froyo is now available for unbranded Legend through update function.
    Takes around 20 minutes through Wifi connection to update.
    After updating to Froyo, feels much more comfortable than before!
