HTC Wildfire S gets Android 2.3.5 update along with Sense 2.1

HTC Wildfire S gets Android 2.3.5 update along with Sense 2.1

Well what do you know – HTC released the Android 2.3.5 update for its low-end Wildfire S smartphone. Along with the latest version of Gingerbread, there’s also the new Sense software (version 2.1), which mimics some of the aspects of the Sense UI on the HTC Sensation. However, you shouldn’t expect all of the features since there’s not enough horse power under the Wildfire S’ hood. There is the new interactive lock screen as well as few other graphic changes and that’s about it.

The update is said to be rolling out across Europe as we speak and if you still haven’t got it, you can manually check – hit “Settings,” “About phone” and the “Software updates.” From here you’ll be able to see whether a new firmware version is available to download. Make sure you’re in a fast hotspot when updating the phone so that everything goes as smoothly as possible.

      You will need atleast 45 mb of internal space for the update to come up. My advise – first factory reset the phone and then check for updates. It would Surely Come

  • sanket

    loving it… thanks for More 45 MB nice GUI

  • Saro04

    The update is pretty good but the only thing is that you have to put every app in circle to activate when the screen is in lock, specially when you get calls from your colleagues you have the option of answer or decline and drag them to the circle to answer or decline unlike just tapping it down like the last version and also when the music is playing in background you would only get small image of the music that is playing which typically sucks, would look good with some big fitted picture. 

  • Daniel

    I’m in the Philippines, and still no update to 2.3.5

  • Suds

    2.3.5 is good has enhanced screen lock system somewhat similar to HTC chacha and yes the sound output quality has also enhanced!!!

  • On Orange in UK, update applied after some housekeeping to give it enough free space.

  • zico martin

    Just updated to this on my daugher’s orange wildfire but ever since she can no longer get the ‘little keyboard’ up to input text when composing messages.  anybody any ideas how to solve this? 

  • Ligrev

    updated to 2.3.5. It got slower and the weather animation became polygons. annoying. any solutions?

    • Ravi

      @ Ligrev Hi, Well, to solve animation become polygons PROBLEM , just press and hold the HTC clock widget
      and remove it. Now add it again from the widgets menu, and this time,
      when setting it up, there is a prompt screen asking you whether you want
      full screen animation or not… Just leave it unticked, and viola, no
      more homescreeen weather animation!

      (You can also long press and drag the widget into the settings icon, and
      configure it from there, but the first one always seems easier to me!) AND 2ND problem (got slow ) u can revert your last old version, u may meet  htc customer care persons , OR search on google to solve ,@TO ALL MOBILE USER WHEN DO ANY CHANGE IN PHONE LIKE UPDATE MUST DO BACKUP , ENJOYYYYYYYY>>>>>>>
