Android 2.2 Froyo update for HTC Wildfire rolls out

The HTC Wildfire entered our review labs coyly offering the goodness of Android 2.1 Éclair. Even though by then Google had released Froyo, the update was still to come. Today, the official HTC Support page has posted that the Android 2.2 Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) update is now finally available for this beauty.

The Wildfire flaunts a 3.2-inch QVGA touchscreen display along with a 5 megapixel camera. Users have a variety of customization options that can be encapsulated on the seven homescreens that the device offers. Handset owners who wish to upgrade their device will have to wait until they receive a notification alerting them on the availability of the FOTA update.
Plunge into the river of frozen yogurt, by accepting the installation process for the Android 2.2 upgrade. In order to download it, HTC customers will require data connection like Wi-Fi or GPRS/3G. The company recommends them to access it via a free Wi-Fi hotspot or an unlimited data plan as the update file is quite large, if not they might have to pay for the standard data connection charges.
It is further advised to back up the device’s data before upgrading for safety sake. Once the installation is complete, users can confirm the the new Build number which is supposed to be 2.22.405.1 to assert a successful update.
