If you’ve gotten a bit tired of the usual wait for Android updates and are a bit more technically minded why not get your Desire running Gingerbread now.
I’ve been using a great custom ROM for about a month now and have been enjoying the new features that 2.3 has to offer. Those who can’t live without Sense need not apply as it’s a Vanilla ROM however the main benefit of this is it’s blazing speed. Boot times, app loading and general snappiness are significantly quicker than stock Desire ROMS.
The usual disclaimers apply, anything you attempt is at your own risk and you could potentially brick your phone but if you know what you’re doing it’s fairly straightforward.
