HTC Wildfire Gets Android 2.2 FroYo Update

The HTC Wildfire has, well, spread like Wildfire since its release date and is still currently one of the most sought after smartphones on the market. Many of you might even see it being just as good as the HTC Desire, just with a lower spec sheet.

But in terms of functionality, the Wildfire delivers. Even in the social networking department where it comes with a few extra social networking features that are exclusive to the device.

One of the reasons being why this phone is still head and shoulders over the rest is its price. The HTC Desire, which in terms of specs and popularity is still ahead of the Wildfire, but is aimed at the higher end of users in terms of smartphone coolness.

With all this in mind, it’s good to see that HTC and Google have decided to give the Wildfire the 2.2 Froyo Android update, which should have already hit you. If not, you will just have to wait until your carrier says they will make the update available to you.

Although we have touched on the subject before, Froyo will increase the speed and performance of the Android OS aswell as providing new features and support for new content such as Flash.

I updated my wildfire to 2.2 a few weeks ago but since then my battery only lasts 5 hours, anyone else noticed unreasonable battery drain? It used to last all day.

This is fake news, as I bought my Wildfire early this month (Dec 10) and still no Froyo for it.

I believe that we are being led a merry dance over this 2.2 update malarkey. I have a HTC Wildfire, based in the UK, and am totally unsure whether I will be getting the update any time soon, if at all. It is all very cloak and dagger and to be honest I haven't a clue what to think. I emailed HTC myself last night and this morning got the standard response that they didn't know when or if this will be happening for the Wildfire. I have decided to lobby HTC and have published a poll on my blog… Read more »

Just asked them via e-mail if there really will be an update to android 2.2 for wildfire. This is their answer. "Thank you for contacting HTC Europe. Currently some of the phones in our Android line up will receive an upgrade, but the schedule for your phone has not yet been released yet. If your phone receives an upgrade, we will notify you via our website and on various social media networks including Twitter and Facebook. I trust this resolves your query." This answer does not resolves my query. "if your phone receives an upgrade, we will notify you via… Read more »

Hmm, my son's Wildfire just indicated an OTA update, we did the update & he now has…Android 2.1 Update 1. (?) Odd eh? This is on a T Mob Wildfire so with their record the phone will have been lost / bust / replaced by the time the Froyo update comes. Love showing him my Desire with the 2.2 on though… Mwahahahahaha 😉

I contacted HTC about this today. "We don't have any information" is all they told me. Their response was quick, which I am impressed by; the lack of information given was bad, which less than impresses me…

The article's title is a little misleading. The intention by HTC to update the Wildfire to Android 2.2 (FroYo) has been confirmed, but that actual update hasn't been released yet. Notice the lack of release date in the story.

David Steadson

I have an unlocked wildfire (purchased new that way) and still no Froyo 🙁

wildfire owner

I am a ‘quickly-to-be’ htc wildfire consumer from Kenya. I have been doing some analysis on this phone and i have discovered it to be the very best price range-smartphone.I’m now able to order it, unlocked clearly, since it hasn’t yet started being offerd in my country. The only huddle but to be falt with is findinga reputable firm keen to export abroad, especially to Africa. So far the only website i’ve found is expansys.co.uk.
