HTC has released another update for their HD mini Windows Mobile smartphone that improves sound handling when in a call.

Not everyone should install it right away – first make sure your HD mini runs ROM version which is less than or equal to 1.36.XXX.X — that’s for all SKUs except Vodafone Spain. If you qualify, then first backup all your data and proceed:

  1. Make sure you have Microsoft ActiveSync installed on your Windows XP PC or Windows Mobile Device Center on your Windows Vista PC.
  2. Connect and synchronize your device with your PC via Microsoft ActiveSync or Windows Mobile Device Center using the USB cable.
  3. Select the update from this page and the location closest to you then click “Download.”
  4. Copy the update, which is an .exe file, to your device. To install the update, tap the .exe file and follow the on-screen instructions.
  5. First execute the file RUU_PHO3693_20100728.exe on your PC while your phone is connected. This will update critical files before you begin your update.
  6. Then, copy the update, PHO03693.exe, to your device. Then tap the .exe file on your phone and follow the on-screen instructions.

Please note that if you perform a device hard reset, you will need to reinstall the update after the hard reset…
