Somehow i can't update my gf's WFS. It keeps giving an error when it tries to install.

Did anybody else got the error "variant system version" on their stock/unbranded/unrooted phone?

I know i can install with the RUU, but i dont want to go through all the hassle in backing-up all her info...

reseting the phone to factory default fixed this problem.

new update

Ok so I am behind in the game. I just got the story on my weekly news update for Wildfire S. What it did not tell me is what phone models will be getting it. Yes, A510a and A510e can flash the European RUU, but if a A510c phone tries to flash that, we'd be sunk. So, I went back to my stock [but rooted] nandroid and checked... no updates yet [other than the security one that came shortly after the phone was released]... Now my questions: Do I have to do anything like unroot or lock back up the bootloader or anything to receive FOTA updates (should they come out for the A510c)? and Does anyone [other than HTC] know if the update is coming for A510c [for sure]? We're on 2.3.4; so, it would be a little improvement. Anyone can hack in a 3.0 lockscreen; so, the sense thing appears not be a huge deal [true 3.0 would be cool though]. Thanks for your time. If you don't know, it's ok... got an email in to HTC [although they never like to give me definitive, straight-up answers, I'm sure they could tell me if it will be offered for the marvelc].

PS post I read

PSS I posted this to the wrong thread first... doh!

For those of the indians here who need confirmation on whether 2.3.5 will be available in india..
I got my notification 2 days back and I updated it..

Phone model: Wildfire S A510e
Android version: 2.3.5
HTC sense version: 2.1
Software number: 2.13.720.1
Kernel: 2.6.35.10
HBoot version: 0.90.0000
Radio: 7.53.39.03M

Updates that I've noticed:
1. New lock screen(with 4 shortcut icons which can be accessed even if the screen is locked, new message notification, new call answer or decline option and a ring at the bottom of the screen unlike the bar which had to be dragged down)
2. New "lock screen" option under Settings>Personalize
3. New power saver notification
4. More memory available(previously I had about 20MB, not I've got 54MB with the same apps that I've got before)
5. eBuddy XMS app(new and unable to un-install)
6. Battery seems to be running a little longer than before(previously about 12 hrs with about 3 hrs of talktime, about 50SMS, and loads of emails and facebook and watsapp texting. now about 15-16 hrs with the same usage)
7. Performance is also much better than before(not getting stuck after screen unlock or after a call, transition effects are smoother)
8. new andriod market.

Still waiting for S-Off though..!!

Hope this info helps..:D

I got myself into some serious trouble... I tried flashing multiple RUU in the past and now i have virgin rom sitting on my WFS. I wanted to unlock the bootloader and tried the RUU provided for the India and it gave me error 131. I have a goldcard this time, now i get error 140. Damn i somehow updated the hboot now it still sits on Android GB 2.3.3 and doesn't allow me to change the rom and/or hboot. Is there any solution for this?
Specs :

Android : 2.3.3
Sense : 2.1
Software number : 1.37.351.1
Build number : 1.37.351.1 CL49952 release-keys
Baseband : 47.23a.35.3035H_7.53.39.03M
Hboot : 0.90.0000
Still S-ON

Any thoughts? Thanks

Thanks!! that was quite helpful summary of changes, I just verified all in the upgrade. My HTC Widfire S got upgraded to 2.13.707.2 a while back and I was amazed with the optimized performance. Due to internal storage issues I was looking to root mine even in warranty.. but luckily got it while checking for software update. Kudos HTC!!!

Just check for software updates in setting/about phone/HTC software updates/check now.

If it says it up to date, the update is not ready for your country YET.
