Vodafone Officially Rolling Out Froyo To HTC Desire On Monday, August 23

This morning on Vodafone’s forums, a VF employee announced that the Froyo update for the HTC Desire would be rolling out on Monday. We knew it was coming soon - on August 12, we relayed that they expected it to roll out in 7-10 days - sans crapware. The update is rolling out a bit later than expected (August 23 would be 11 days) because they wanted to make sure they’d worked out all the kinks. Vodafone is hoping to roll out the update to all customers within a two-week timeframe.

In what seems to be an attempt to appease customers who are still pissed off over the Vodafone 360 crapware debacle, they’ve even provided instructions for how to remove it:

Instructions for users who downloaded and now want to remove the Vodafone 360 update (1.24.161.3)

If you have downloaded the Vodafone 360 update and want to remove it from your device, you will need to follow one of these two approaches, depending on whether or not you have accessed and updated the “360 Updates” or “Shop” apps pre-installed in the 1.24.161.3 update.

EVO Owners Benchmark 10 Custom ROMs, 1 Stock ROM

This has got to be one of the most useful things I’ve seen in my tenure here, although I may be biased because I own an EVO. XDA forum member nief1313 is in the (very slow) process of compiling the results of testing and benchmarking a ton of EVO ROMs. When I say a ton, I mean 11:

  1. Stock Froyo
  2. CyanogenMod 6 RC2
  3. DamageControl 3.5
  4. Fresh EVO 3.1.0.1
  5. BakedSnack 1.2.5
  6. Burnt Droid 1.0
  7. EViO 2 Series v1.0.2
  8. EViO 2 Series v1.1
  9. Ava-FroyoV3RevA
  10. OMJ’s v2.1
  11. FroYo Fusion 2.3

Quite the comprehensive list, and a popular one at that: as I write this, there 27 people are viewing the spreadsheet.

Still No Official Date For Droid Incredible 2.2 Update, Despite Rumors

Remember that pesky rumor sparked up by Mashable a while back, claiming that the Incredible would be receiving the Froyo OTA update right about now? Well, if you are still clutching your phone and frantically checking for system updates as the day 08/18 draws to a close … you can take a rain check on that system update. Tweeted out earlier by the Verizon Wireless support account @VZWsupport, there is no confirmed date for the Froyo release and it will not be happening today. Sorry guys.

G2, T-Mobile's First HSPA+ Device, Gets A Website To Call Its Own

It seems appropriate since the G1, the phone that kicked off the Android revolution, was killed off a few weeks ago, and since T-Mobile is about to introduce their first HSPA+ capable device, that they would call this device the G2. Well, after countless rumors about a G2 (starting a few hours after the G1's launch), the device has finally been announced on T-Mobile's HSPA+ site.

That's right, the G2 is official, will be the first phone to utilize T-Mobile's 4G-like HSPA+ network, and will have its specs handed out to the media and a select group of people "over the coming weeks." These are exciting times ahead of us, folks, so stay tuned to Android Police for lots more coverage on the G2 and other upcoming Android devices.

New Root Method For MyTouch Slide With Latest OTA Support Surfaces

Android user nbetcher, with the help of ChiefzReloaded, has come up with a new method to achieve root for the T-Mobile MyTouch Slide. The process was just finalized and is still rather technical, but Chiefz says an APK is coming soon, with a one-click sure to follow.

Technically, this method grants a specific program root, rather than the whole phone - thus, a full-phone root must follow. Again, these instructions are certainly on the technical side - if you’re not comfortable doing this, an APK and one-click will follow.

  1. Extract the zip
  2. Make sure your phone is in USB debugging mode AND you are in "Charge Only" mode.

HTC Wildfire Gets Access To Root-Only Apps With Soft Root

It may have taken a little longer than other HTC phones, but the Wildfire has finally been rooted… in a way. This method doesn’t unlock NAND on the phone (which means you can't remove stock apps or install custom ROMs), but it does allow running applications that require root (here are 8 great root-only applications if you need inspiration).

XDA user MartinEve, who accomplished the soft root, is already in talks with the developers of unrEVOked to make a more permanent solution, but until then, you can follow the instructions below to root your Wildfire (to find the most up-to-date instructions, hit the source link).

Droid Incredible To Receive Update To Froyo August 18

In case you Droid Incredible owners were jealous that the much older Motorola Droid was getting Froyo, you can rest easy – your Froyo update is good and ready, and it’s set to go out Wednesday, August 18.

The update is over-the-air, so your phone should prompt you to install it. If you don’t want to wait, you can check for the update manually by going to Settings, About Phone, then System Updates. Verizon employees already have access to the update, so there shouldn’t be any problems or bugs.

If you receive the update, be sure to let us know how it works for you.

Slow Data On Your HTC EVO 4G? Update Your PRI

Flipz (of Fresh ROMs) has come through again, this time with a solution to slow data speeds. It seems the problem lies with PRI - as Flipz puts it, “... a connection between your phone and the radio... responsible for carrying both voice and data.” The EVO shipped with PRI version 1.40, but rooting the phone downgrades to 1.34 - which is evidently less efficient.

The fix isn’t exactly easy, but it’s nothing too tricky, either. Users who have experience in the depths of their phone (read: recovery, logistics, etc.) should be just fine, as should less-experienced users who follow the directions closely.

HTC Lexikon and Bee Leaked, Both Running Froyo With Sense

If you're willing to believe a Chinese website by the name of “911sniper,” then you may be excited to hear that HTC is prepping two new Froyo-running handsets with Sense on top, though neither will be “superphones” or very ground-breaking.

The first handset, called the HTC Lexikon, has a 3.8” 480x800 resolution screen with a 5MP camera and an 800 MHz processor and a full QWERTY keyboard. Nothing mind-blowing, but with this and the Samsung Intercept, it’s nice to see 800 MHz becoming the standard for mid-range Android phones. On the other hand, we have the HTC Bee, with a 3.2” 240x320 resolution screen, a 5MP camera with flash, and a 528 MHz processor.
