htc desire hd

HTC has begun rolling out a new over-the-air firmware update for Desire HD handsets in the UK and Europe.

Version 2.50.405.2 of HTC’s OS (not to be confused with Android) is a minor bump that fixes an as-yet-unknown bug and improves the handset’s Wi-Fi performance.

According to initial user reports from Twitter, the install, which is 19.8M in size, appears to have gone down smoothly. However, since then a small number of users on the xda-developers forum have reportedly noticed a faster draining of battery life since upgrading, while others are complaining that it is causing the handset’s GPS to malfunction.

The scale of the problems will not be known until the update has been pushed out a large number of handsets, so in the meantime, it’s advisable that you avoid installing until your network or HTC confirms that it is safe to do so.

If you’ve installed the update and have noticed any changes for better or worse, please let us know in the comments section below.
