Vodafone U-Turn As Common Sense Rules

Vodafone's HTC Desire users were extremely happy to see that Vodafone have seen sense and decided to offer a clean upgrade to Android 2.2 "FroYo".

This update will be based on a stock HTC firmware and the only changes made my Vodafone will be APN and other network settings required for customers to make phone calls, send text messages and access the Internet. The browser homepage and bookmarks will be untouched.

The update is expected to be available in the next 7-10 days so for the next week both sides can relax.

Here is the full statement from the Vodafone forum :

Hi everyone

Weve listened to feedback from customers on a number of points around the recent 360 Android 2.1 update and made some changes to the roll out plan.

The Android 2.2 update for Vodafone HTC Desire users will be based on the HTC open market version of the software and we will customise it to ensure our network settings are installed.

For customers who have downloaded the recent 360 update for Android 2.1, we can confirm that the Android 2.2 update will remove the 360 applications and will leave the homepage and bookmarks on your current settings.

Customers who want to access the 360 services will be able to do so once the Android 2.2 compatible version is available and, in the meantime, can now download apps like 360 People from the Android Marketplace.

We plan to make the 360 apps available in a separate update for the HTC Desire at a later date, giving customers the choice to download it.

We will let you know when the date for delivery of the Android 2.2 update is finalised, but, subject to testing, we expect this to be in 7-10 days time.
