Another HTC Desire firmware update on the way?

[Edit] 23/04/10 It seems this problem may be with certain apps that have copy-protection enabled (why all developers wouldn’t do this I don’t know). I don’t know of apps which aren’t showing up but it’s possibly what I saw a few weeks back when trying to find the full version of Gem Miner: Dig Deeper. [/Edit]

HTC have just released a firmware update (FOTA) for the HTC Legend which fixes problems between the Android Market and the phone’s camera.

Strange I know but apparently a lot of people have had this problem. Apps like Myspace Mobile and Barcode scanner were apparently not appearing on people’s Legends (and some say Desires).

I personally like to think I’m too old to worry about a Myspace app but the Barcode Reader is actually quite useful – both apps show up on my Desire btw.

Anyway, HTC will be sending the update out to Legend users as I type so look out for version 1.31.405.4. For more info, check out the HTC support website.

    I’ve already downloaded the barcode scanner :/ so it was available for me.

    And when I got mine there was no update (this was after you posted about the first update, so I assumed I had it).

      I think we must have received a “second batch” which came with the later firmware as I didn’t have to update either – not that I’m complaining!

    Both those apps appear for me, just wish google would approve the desire so some of the other apps appear on the marketplace.

    • Jon Says:

      What other apps do you mean?

      • thegadgetdude Says:

        I can’t get google earth to come up on mine, been a couple of others apps I’ve clicked via appaware/appbrain and then it’s not found on the market. I presume this is down to the google rom approval business. I’ve not found and update since i got mine, so i presume this will be the first update for me.

      • Jon Says:

        @thegadgetdude – Try searching for a protected app now, I think something has been fixed somewhere because they’ve started appearing on my phone. However, the big ones such as Google Earth and National Rail have not appeared. Gem Miner: Dig Deeper is now available though!

    Have you seen that Google are set to enable 802.11n on the Nexus One?

    Will the Desire see the same update, it has the same Broadcom chip doesn’t it?

    • Jon Says:

      Good spot, I don’t see why we wouldn’t see it on the Desire – in fact, I’m sure HTC would release this update before they do for the Nexus One seeing as it’s their own “baby”
