happy days, i hope it solves my dropping calls sometimes, and losing people on the phone, or my problem could be a programe i have installed with linda file manager, i was gonnd try and do a factory reset to see if it will solve my problems, but dont know how to, and now this update is out soon, so i might wait for this

Factory data reset is Menu>Settings>Privacy if you need to in the future.

Looking forward to this update 720p video recording will be good & also htc sync allowing the desire to sync with itunes (if you use it).

But if you use the official OTA update you have lost root!

Just flashed the new radio ...20 via recovery and all is well...

Just waiting for the rooted 2.2 image to be uploaded and I'll be flashing that too :)

CWS =
Been playing with it the last few hours. Was hoping flash videos were going to be smooth but playback is comparable to my n900 although it is better on the desire.

I have just noticed that gifs are now animated so I'm happy about that :)

you need the updated co pilot, just install it over the previous cracked version and you dont need the serial or to download any maps

Note: I have not tried this myself
Thanks to rackhouse from xda for these instructions.
http://liveimage.htc.com/OTA_Bravo_Froyo_HTC_WWE_2.09.405.8-1.21.405.2_release4dua3bcrut4wrv30.zip

1. Download the Android 2.2 firmware for the Desire
2. Rename the file update.zip and copy it to your microSD card via USB. [Note: make sure the file is named update.zip and not update.zip.zip.]
3. Power down your Desire
4. Hold down the “Volume Down” button as you power the phone back on.
5. A screen should appear showing your phone’s system searching for various files. Scroll down to “recovery” and press the “Power” button.
6. When you see the triangle with an exclamation point symbol, press the “Power” and “Volume Up” buttons at the same time.
7. From the menu that appears, select “Apply sdcard:update.zip.”
8. When the screen displays “Install from sdcard complete” select “reboot system now” and wait for the phone to power back up.
