Virgin Media HTC Desire gets Android 2.2 FroYo update

Virgin Media customers finally given FroYo for Desire update

Months after HTC Desire users on other networks added a dollop of Frozen Yogurt to their handsets, Virgin Media customers are today being offered the Android 2.2, FroYo, update for their iPhone-challenging Google powered devices.

“We’ve started sending out the Froyo update as of 9am this morning,” read Virgin Media’s official release on the long overdue OS update.

Virgin Media’s Desire contingent looking to add 720p video recording support, Flash Player 10.1 and increased Wi-Fi hotspot abilities to their FroYo compatible handsets must first ensure their pocket blower is running the latest Virgin firmware package: “this is only for customers on our Virgin specific firmware (1.23.351.1). Customers on the original firmware (1.15.405.4) will need an update to the 1.23.351.1 firmware first before they can install the Froyo update.”

“This is an FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) update which means that you will be prompted to download the update on their handset. We strongly recommend that you use a Wi-Fi connection to download the update. You’ll be asked if you want to back up your handset first, and we recommend this as well.” stated the Virgin Media release.
