Telus HTC Desire HD Android 2.3 Gingerbread update now rolling out
It’s a happy day if you own an HTC Desire HD, are in Canada, and your carrier of choice is Telus. And you got that Desire HD of yours from Telus. If all of the above describes you, then you should know that your beloved Android-powered smartphone is finally receiving an update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, after months and months of waiting.
The update will reach your phone over-the-air, and the handset will notify you when it’s available. It’s a 99.68 MB affair, so if your mobile data plan is capped, you should probably make sure you’re downloading it via Wi-Fi.
If you have rooted your Desire HD and/or are running custom ROMs on it, the update notification probably won’t make it to your device. Then again, if you are using a custom ROM, it’s probably been based on Gingerbread for quite a while now (since unlocked and unbranded HTC Desire HD smartphones have been getting the update for more than a month).
This update will not bring the Sense 3.0 (a.k.a. Sense 3D) UI, as seen on the HTC Sensation, to the Desire HD. It will however make your smartphone run the latest version of Android, and that should be good enough for most.
