O2 UK releases, then pulls Froyo update for HTC Desire

Unlocked and unbranded HTC Desire smartphones have started to receive the much-awaited update to Google’s latest mobile OS version, Android 2.2 Froyo, about a month ago.

Vodafone’s roll-out of Froyo for their branded HTC Desire devices started a couple of weeks ago.

O2, however, only decided to send the Android 2.2 bits to their customers’ smartphones today.

And lucky few actually received said update, before O2 pulled it. Apparently, some Desire owners were reporting system freezes after installing the update. And others saw that some sites were crashing the browser. Therefore, the roll-out has been suspended until O2 can get to the bottom of the errors people were reporting.

So if you got some Froyo love from O2 this morning, installed it, and aren’t facing any issues, consider yourself very lucky. If, however, you haven’t gotten the OTA update yet, it looks like there’s going to be some more waiting involved.

Here’s hoping that the problem is minor and when you wake up tomorrow your trusty smartphone will inform you of the update. One can dream, no?
