O2 has released the latest Android update for the HTC Desire again after the original update was blighted with freezing problems.

The update was originally released earlier this month but users had quickly discovered that it caused their phones to freeze during boot stage and in some cases not operate at all.

The rollout of Android 2.2, AKA Froyo, has been affected by similar issues on other networks and devices, too. The Dell Streak was a previous victim on O2, while Orange was forced to postpone its HTC Desire update after struggling to test for compatibility, which some believe have to do with the device's custom user interface.

Android 2.2 brings an assortment of new features and improvements, including memory, speed and battery optimisations, HD video recording, USB tethering and Wi-Fi hotspot functionality.
