One of the fastest phones out there, the HTC Desire S is giving out promising results as HTC is planning to release an Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread update for the device. Despite the fact that HTC hasn’t come up with an official release date for the update, leaked versions began to surface through the net. Early users of the HTC Desire S were able to get a copy and test it on their device and were happy to report that the latest version was stable with all the core key features completely intact.
With the Gingerbread version all ready, there’s no surprise that a customized version of Ice Cream Sandwich will soon be available for the HTC Desire S. The Gingerbread update of the device already proves to show promising results and later on will be adopted by the HTC Desire S community.
If you can’t wait for HTC’s official announcement on the release date for the update, why don’t you try the latest unofficial update and see the results for yourself. As a precaution though, this update is not the official firmware from HTC. It is a modified version of HTC’s stock ROM with performance upgrades and smooth functionalities. Always remember that when you install this firmware, this is strictly for HTC Desire S phones only and will most likely not work on any similar HTC phones.
Follow the steps below to update your HTC Desire S to the latest Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread update.
The most important step before you can install custom ROMs starts with a rooted phone. You can tell that your phone is rooted by checking your app drawer for the Superuser app or a Custom Recovery for HTC already installed. If everything is there then you’re good to go.
Congratulations! You have successfully updated your HTC Desire S firmware to Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread. Did you try the steps above? How did it go for you? Do you notice any improvements with your phone’s performance by using the update?
