Unhappy [Q] Wildfire S 2.3.5 update issues

Hi All
Does anybody else got Wildfire S almost unusable after update to 2.3.5? UI is extremely laggy, animations (especially when using clocks with weather) are fragmented and you can see some rectangular overlays instead of pictures, keyboard blinks, so you can hardly type anything, etc., etc.
Factory reset doesn't solve the problem.

How did you install the update? Ruu or ota?

try this

factory reset

Download The ruu from shipped rom's thread

Then install through your PC.

If this is how you installed it already it may have just been an unlucky/bad flash, in which case try again.

It was OTA. But now it doesn't connect to PC - not in Sync or Drive modes...
Looks like HTC service is the only answer.

Depends on region and language required.

If you want English or European languages download the latest euro 2.13.*** it will remove operator bloatware too. But you will have to create a goldcard or you'll get error.

Check the stickies for tutorials.

If you have a HTC Wildfire S A510e (GSM) try to download the file with this name: RUU_Marvel_S_HTC_Europe_2.13.401.2_Radio_47.23a.35 .3035H
It's on football's thread.

If you have error 131 while updating you need to create a goldcard in order to install that RUU.
This subject is more than covered in many threads.
If you want instructions on how to create a goldcard try to go here:
http://android.modaco.com/topic/3056...ng-a-goldcard/

Try to do some research first before picking a ROM at random.
There's lots of info here. Sometimes people are just too lazy to search...
Phone: LG Google Nexus 4
Android version: 4.4.2 KitKat (stock)
Kernel: franco.Kernel r199

It's so easy to be grateful... please click thanks on my posts if I helped you.

Hi. I have rooted my Wildfire S and cannot get it to upgrade to 2.3.5 using the Phone-update. It shows a triangle with exclamation mark inside and hangs forever. Can only get out of hang by remove battery. Have asked HTC (not told root) but they can only tell me to format SD-card and factory reset. I will now try via PC and GoldCard made by my XTC-Clip.

I tried to update my phone from 1.33.401.2 to 2.13.401.2 with RUU_Marvel_S_HTC_Europe_2.13.401.2_Radio_47.23a.35 .3035H_7.53.39.03M_release_225747_signed.exe

I kept getting error 170.
Turned out i had to exit htc sync from the sys tray.

Hey dude, I registered just to help you out because I had a similar situation with my WFS.
After unlocking the bootloader through htcdev and rooting my phone I had the exact same problems - laggy menus, stuttering animations - all-around-crappy-phone-syndrome. But after I applied some android tweaks to the build.prop file, specifically tweaks from this thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1227269), my WFS was smooth as butter.

I applied the following:
Code:
debug.performance.tuning=1
video.accelerate.hw=1
windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec=150
You can find the build.prop file in the /system folder. Gotta be rooted to edit it though.
Let me know if it worked for you.
