Default OTA update now available for DESIRE HD

You can now download the latest software update for new features and improved performance. It wont delete any of your content and wed recommend using a Wi-Fi connection as this is a large update. If not, standard data connection charges may apply. Any questions? Contact us via www.htc.com. 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 will be 1.32.405.3

Update Information: Screen control and photo message compatibility enhancements

Note: We still recommend you back up your all personal data first.

I have just installed it and not noticed any difference (though my phone does not suffer with the proximity sensor problem reported by some)

@crossbox : Goto > Settings > About phone > System software updates.

It is best to update via wifi for fastest download, once downloaded, select install.

phone will reboot, can take a little while to reboot so makes sure you let it restart by itself.

just updated 1mon ago.

the process is simple, as usual, the key is always " DONT PANIC!"

go to manu - setting - about phone - system software updates - check now, and follow the on screen instruction.

The phone will restart a few times showing different screens, sometimes it looks like the phone is dead but its actually installing the update at background. during this process:
Dont remove the battery,
Dont force restart,
Dont press random keys,
and DONT PANIC!

the phone will do a full restart at the end of it and show up an system notification that the software has been upated to version 1.32.405.3

i know how the process works i have done it many times in the past. when the phone restarts it just stays off, i've left it for over 20mins and nothing. I have a feeling its because the phone is locked to tmobile.

Hey guys,

My phone had problems answering calls when i picked the phone from my pocket, it would either hang people up or make the screen disfunctioning, and make it impossible to slide the bar up or down.

after the update tried it a couple of times and the problem seems to be fixed!

I've also got a T-Mobile locked device and I can't install the update either. Annoying.
