Technically, an official Gingerbread ROM for the HTC Desire will be available for download, yet it will not be pushed out to the general public due to a number of issues that the HTC developer team simply couldn't hurdle. HTC stated on its Facebook page that “certain functions may no longer be usable after re-flashing the ROM, including but not limited to MMS and SMS”, but the troubles with the update are not over just yet.
Now for the worst part, the official Gingerbread update is not meant to run on the US version of the HTC Desire. Japanese, South Korean and some German models of the smartphone are not invited either. Could this be a good time to give CyanogenMod a try?
