Froyo Update for HTC Wildfire rolling out in India

on December 24, 2010 – 5:05 pm21 Comments

The much expected FroYo update for the HTC Wildfire is finally rolling out in India. The update was recently available in UK. Now users in India can update their handset Over The Air (OTA) to Android 2.2

The OTA update is about 58 MB in size , so we would advise you to download the update over a WiFi connection. Notable improvements include ability to use your phone as a WiFi Hotspot and ability to install apps to the memory card.

To start the update go to settings->about phone-> system software updates

Make sure you backup your phone before proceeding with the update.

Thanks to all of you who sent this in !

    I read somewhere that this OTA Froyo update can be downloaded over 3G or wi-fi only.May be that’s reason most of us which use EDGE are unable to download it.

    The update of the Android OS version for any phone model depends on three entities.
    1. Google – releases the OS
    2. Phone Manufacturer – modifies the Google released ROM and prepares a stock ROM
    3. The Service Provider – Makes it available to the end user

    For HTC Wildfire, India users, Froyo is available with Vodafone. I know this because I have done with the upgrade.

    You all please check with your SPs for the exact date of the availability.

    The best option is to check the update from your handset.

    Press the “Menu” -> “Settings” -> “About Phone” (scroll down, the last option) -> “System software updates” -> “Check now”

    You need any kind of internet connections to download the updated ROM. Its size is nearly 59Mb. So it’s recommended that you use a free connection and a fast one too. Otherwise, you have to wait really long for the download to be completed. But don’t worry, the download can be paused and resumed any time during the activity. :)

    The update is cool. Better performance. Less applications now go to cached inactive queue.
    GMail got a few changes. The radio as well.
    And as you all know already, apps can now be moved to SD card, if that is supported by the apps.
    A lot of features like flashlite and Apps Sharing were already in Wildfire from 2.1. firmware update, so no change there (Legend got these with Froyo).
    Live wallpaper seems to be not supported by Wildfire, though it’s now in for Legend with Froyo update. :(

      I couldnt update the normal way too.. I called up the service center. They asked me to reverse my time to 23rd Dec on the phone and keep the phone connected via wifi for 24 hours. I will have an auto prompt asking me to upgrade. I have had no luck in 3 hours yet. Will Update should this resolve the issue.

      • C. Datta

        I was told the same thing by the customer care. However, after I change the date to 23 Dec 2010, and enable Wi-Fi, the date gets changed to the current date, by itself. I would like to know, if I can keep the Wi-Fi disabled, until I get the notification, and after that, enable Wi-Fi and start the update.

        Any advice would be welcome. Thanks in advance.

    If you have firmware version 1.14.xxx, you will not get the update as of now. Only phones with firmware version 1.25.xxx are receiving updates. If you have firmware 1.14, Go to the nearest HTC service center and request them to update your firmware to 1.25.xxx and then check for the software update and you will receive the Android 2.2 (Froyo) update.

  • bALAJI

    I received the Update couple of days ago & by mistake i cancelled it.

    Now i am not able to find the way to get my Wildfire upgraded to 2.2
    The About option tells me that i have no updates.

    Someone help me to get this issue resolved.

  • Raj
