Earlier, on 23rd of this month, HTC rolled out Android 2.2 – Froyo OS for Wildfire users in India but as seen in the comments of this post, many wildfire users are still facing problems to update their handset to Froyo.

Do check out if any of these steps work out for you:
- You should automatically get a ‘software update’ notification on your phone. If you haven’t seen any such notification on your WF yet, then try pulling it manually from Settings –> About phone –> System software update and check the ‘Schedule check’ button so that your phone can automatically keep checking for an update and notify you about Froyo update in a few hours’ time.
- In our case, the phone didn’t detect software update while checking via Wifi but we could easily see update notification while we checked for it manually via mobile data plan. So we recommend you to check both ways.
- As per HTC India customer care, if you still don’t get an update, manually set your handset date to 23rd December 2010 and it should pull the Froyo update notification for your handset in the next 24 hours.
If you still face problem updating your wildfire with Froyo, you can call up HTC India toll-free number at 1800-1033-566 between 9.30 Am and 5.30 PM Monday to Saturday.
Please do not forget to comment about what method worked for you as this could be helpful for other WF users in India.
#1 – As Ajak pointed out on the comment section, “If you have firmware version 1.14.xxx, you will not get the update as of now. Only phones with firmware version 1.25.xxx are receiving updates. If you have firmware 1.14, Go to the nearest HTC service center and request them to update your firmware to 1.25.xxx and then check for the software update and you will receive the Android 2.2 (Froyo) update.”
Thaks Ajak for the info. 🙂
