HTC releases new OTA firmware update for HTC Desire and HTC Legend

Once again, HTC Europe has announced the arrival of new firmware updates – but neglected to supply any sort of official information about what might be fixed, changed or updated in the new ROM.

The official releases are for the Legend and Bravo (AKA Desire) and should be gradually appearing on your phones soon, network permitting. Here’s the announcement from HTC’s support site – it’s next to useless, but does at least contain the ROM numbers for your information.

Update – HTC Legend and Bravo Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) update

In our commitment to providing you with the best user experience, we are pushing out a new firmware update to your phone. Your phone will receive a notification of this update when it is made available. Simply press OK to accept the update via a data connection such as Wi-Fi or GPRS/3G. After installing the update, you can confirm a successful update by confirming the Software Number (From the Home Screen go to MENU> Settings> About Phone> Software information> Software number). The new software number after the update will be 1.31.405.4 on HTC Legend and 1.21.405.2 on HTC Desire.

And at least this gives us an excuse to use a promotional image of the lesser-spotted HTC Legend:

htc legend rom update

As ever, if you do receive an update, please let us know. HTC’s an IMPENETRABLE WALL of silence, and we don’t have the full suite of Android hardware to test these things ourselves.

UPDATE:
According to a thread on the XDA Developers forum, this update changes the phones’ radio image as well as upgrading a few of the installed apps and fixing a few teeny bugs.

      do not get it why my HTC Legend software NUMBER read 2.06.709.3
      What’s the difference. It is not firmware 2.2 I have been waiting for.

    Updated this morning (manually) on desire on o2. Seems like phone is running faster when testing using Linpack. Now 8+ mflops where as before it was more like 6! Anyone else had this improvement?

    I had my OTA update this morning on my Desire. I was excited that it was Android Froyo – but not spotted any major changes so far.
    Its saying Firmmware 2.1-update1 and software 1.21.405.2 which seems different to everyone else.

    Just tried running the software update on my HTC Desire… all went smoothly until the phone rebooted: firmware downloaded, installed and handset rebooted. But, then it asked me for an 8 digit SIM unlock code, which I didn’t know. Called Orange and the codes they gave me didn’t work either. Tested the SIM card on another handset, but it was working fine. Anyway, long story short, Orange are sending me out a replacement handset tomorrow.

    No idea what would have caused the problem. I did do a ROM reset after I got the phone originally to strip out the Orange apps/customisations (following the instructions on Modaco), but didn’t imagine this would adversely affect the HTC updates.

    Anyone else encounter any problems like this?

    I updated without any issues on an unlocked unbranded HTC Desire from Handtec.

    @Shani – I believe the fact you removed the Orange branding is what caused your issue. If you check out various forums (in particular xda-devs) you’ll see that people who have removed the branding have had issues after installing this update (some report WiFi wont work any longer).

  20. I updated with no issues. Those on Orange/Three may be waiting for the networks to add on their branding before they release the update (looking at the comments above at least some of those who have received the update use unlocked phones).

    I was lucky enough to get one of the unbranded Desires on 3 before they started branding them. I have updated this morning and have had no problems with Wifi or anything else since the update. Prior to the update I had loads of problems with contacts mysteriously vanishing from the phone book/contacts and calendar sync probs with both gmail and outlook etc. I hope HTC have fixed some of these bugs in this release – fingers crossed!

    I think the wi-fi failure issue only affects those updating de-branded Desires.

    I just updated my desire. Everything seemed to be going fine until it rebooted, confirmed that the update was successful and tried restoring my data. Now i have the cycling cursor and “restoring your data and settings from the backup”. Its been like this for about 30mins and even after i rebooted the fone. I’ve been receiving calls though.
    Does anyone know how to resolve this issue?

    Hate the fact operators force their crap branded phones at you, almost debranded my desire until reading this as can bet ur bottom dollar that Orange and others won’t bother with new firmware a few months down the line while the normal HTC phones will get 2.2 and all the other delights yet to come! If you have the choice, always go unlocked and untouched!

    I have a desire on T-Mobile and have never got the update available message. T-Mobile have said they have taken the update down due to tech issues they were experiencing, I have a funny feeling my desire is actually a virgin phone that has been unlocked as it has a virgin scene and had shortcut to virgin media.

    Hi. Received OTA update last week in Portugal, for a SIM-free Desire.
    First impression, the phone was faster, but it’s just a trick, The guys from HTC ONLY deactivated windows animations in Settings->Sound&Display->Animation. After restoring the setting speed was the same.
    They did clean a little bit of RAM, aprox. 20MB, not bad!!!
    After first reboot the system asked to restore definitions, everything worked ok except for the home screen, I lost selected widgets and background, so had to configure again. No data lost do!
    Worst part is instability, already had 2 spontaneous reboots this week, both of them wile using 3G…

    The update took a long time, I left it on overnight near my wifi and applied the update this am.

    Karen you can just scroll back down to the bottom to continue but this is very irritating and its happening more and more. There are other little issues that only seem to have come up since froyo, suchas random capitalization of words (especially The), and when opening messages a message from another sender will open instead. Tried using handcent but same issues. I love the phone and wouldn’t change it for anything, I just hope HTC iron out these issues sooner rather than later.

    • Chris, have you tried pairing again? It may not recognise the device once the radio and firmware have updated. I couldn’t say though as I’m with Orange and still waiting for my update to come through:-(

    • I know it’s not a proper fix, but I use Handcent SMS, and it’s not affected by this SMS ordering bug…

    Another easy (temporary) fix is to use the HTC Messages widget that comes pre-installed on the Legend. It is not affected by the ordering issue as it only shows the most recent message received.

    Graeme, I too have the problem of jumping to top of three mid conversation. I thought it was because I had ‘limit to 30′, switched that off, emptied inbox, and it seemed better. But returned again when inbox started filling. It’s incredibly annoying, and I reported it ages ago.

    I have found a slightly quicker way to return – reorient handset to landscape then back again. Not ideal but quicker.

      Just updated my HTC legend today to Android 2.2 – 3.15.405.3, because the last update I did had the problem with the message screen where it only showed the first text in a stream so I had to scroll all the way through the texts and it infuriated me but lo an behold the new update now does not let me receive any kind of GPRS signal so no 3G or anything! I have contacted orange and they are sending me a sim update now so hopefully this will fix things. I hasten to add that the 2.2 update version I have listed actually fixed the problem with the message stream and made the phone look a lot nice but I just hope this signal problem can be fixed! has anyone else had this problem at all?

    ….the sim update didn’t work, it would seem I have a long day on the phone with orange customer services ahead of me to try and fix this problem. I will update on any advancements.

    I updated my HTC Wildfire yesterday, and since then my clock widgets are gone! I still have the boring analog one in the top of the widgets list, but the ones you’re able to customize are GONE. Some other widgets and programs have vanished from my phone and I am really frustrated! I updated to 2.1-update 1. Does anyone know how to get these widgets back? I’ve been searching the Android Market, but the only widgets they have there are ones made by customers and not HTC – and I don’t really want to install anything that I don’t really know who made it and that can damage my phone… :S
