3uk and Froyo, you just have to laugh   Leave a comment

Hello no-one

I am so pleased that I didn’t wait for 3 to roll out Froyo for my Desire.  After they rolled it out they (like just about every other UK mobile provider) had to recall it because there special customisations had screwed it up.  Apparently they released the update 14/10/2010 and pulled it 11 days later.  The reason they had to pull it was because it was preventing people from accessing the market place, they were suggesting that you needed to do a factory reset to get it working again.  Not a difficult thing to do but I would had been really pissed to start loading all my apps again and messing around with my home screen to get it just the way I like it.

What really makes me laugh is how they made such a big deal, on their blog, about how rigorously their testing process was and that they would not be having the same problems that other carriers, who add they own crapware, were having.  I think all the carriers here in the Uk rolled out Froyo just to have to pull it as their customisations had screwed it up.

UK carriers, still, seem to think that they are dealing with dumb phones and they can stick there logo’s and crapware on easily with no come backs, well it just isn’t happening.  When are they going to learn to just leave stuff alone?  If they had just rolled out the HTC Sense version of Froyo they would not have had these issues, 3 users would not have had to wait months for what was already available and I would still have a phone I didn’t need a gold card in to get my very prompt HTC updates.

Someday my fellow countrymen, who don’t read enough about their new pocket PC’s, will get Froyo but I wouldn’t count on 3 getting right next time either.  Maybe by then I will have moved to CyanogenMod, I just need to grow a big enough pair of balls to get back into rooting my phone and flashing custom ROMs.

So wishing you a happy Halloween, ciao and peace out.
