Okay so the update hit my phone last night and it downloaded fine... After the phone reboots all I get is "The application HTC sense (processcom.htc.launcher) has stopped unexpectedly" and I can't get to anything from there.
Anyone know where I can download the 2.3.4 update and try it manually?
Same issue - and can't access the phone functionality. Please help.
My HTC DI downloaded the 4.08.605 update but failed to install it saying there wasn't enough space. After I cleaned the phone up (which I still don't know what the issue was... there is plenty of space for a 8MB update) it never restarted. I followed some information here about shutting down the phone, pulling the battery.... putting in back and and restarting the phone to get the update to go again but IT DIDN'T WORK! Also, I thinks I am on the Sprint network. When I go to the Android Market it says Sprint instead of Verizon (under Apps). Please HELP! I am due for an upgrade early in 2k12 and right now, I might be headed to the iPhone because of all these problems! Jeesh.
Wish I was getting far enough along to have problems with the update. Mine is stuck on 2.2 and reports that the system is up to date.
I have already done full factory reset, formated memory card, set closk back to 12:30 AM, and did a manual checkin, but no joy.
My wife's identical phone did the 4.06 the night before last and the 4.08 last night.
I am hoping that someone will leak the update in file format so I can apply it from the PC.
Otherwise, it is looking like custom ROMs are the way to go...
Any suggestions appreciated..
For me, I set the date to 11/23/11. I set the time to 12:23 pm. (it has to do with 3's)...then I went and turned background data OFF.
Then go and check for updates. You may have to check for updates twice...but, mine started the download immediately after the 2nd check for updates..
I just got the Gingerbread install (v. 2.3.4.08.605.2) and it went without a hitch. It took a LONG time and self-booted quite a few times along the way, and I wonder if some of you who have suffered these problems might have thought it was finished and interrupted the installation. Honestly, I thought it was finished several times but I decided just to let it sit, and sure enough it commenced again.
I lost no applications or settings including Angry Birds, except that my application volume had somehow been turned down all the way -- my key click didn't sound and the Angry Bird song didn't play. I thought it was screwed up until I turned the application sound level back up.
The only anomaly I have found is in the mail application, which sometimes gives a totally spurious "network error" message. It is the message that is wrong; the network is behaving fine and the mail is working just like it did before (unfortunately; it worked better during the period between the initial update to FroYo and the subsequent update pushed by Verizon a month or so later).
But the differences are extremely few. The new HTC Sense wasn't included and that's a disappointment. The flipping of the little number pages is a little more noticeable on the homepage clock. I have found very few differences in the various settings. Battery life seems the same. Had this been pushed when I was sleeping I might not have noticed it at all.
You've presented a good issue, Dalite. I've asked on forums if Android 2.1 can be updated to 2.3.4. Some posters say it can be done OTA but are vague about what really happened during their update.
One Level 2 HTC rep told me over the phone it's impossible to update Android 2.1 to 2.3.4 OTA because the updating equipment can only update from the previous update level. For example imagine the previous update to 2.3.4 was 2.3.3, then a phone running 2.3.3 could be updated to 2.3.4. I don't know what the prior update to 2.3.4 was. The rep went on to say 2.1 could be updated to 2.3.4 by sending the phone to a third party which would do the update by a flashing method.
A couple years ago, I had a feature phone fail during warranty. The phone was replaced, and I was told flashed firmware frequently loses its programming. I've also heard that flashing problem from another source.
