Ah right. I just read the extra steps and it does add some complexity. I still think it's worth it though!MarkyPancake said:Thanks DJSigma. This method won't work for me, because I'm on HTC 2.3, which removed the hold volume down on boot up bootloader.
Going from HTC 2.3 has some extra steps and I haven't felt comfortable going through the process yet.

It failed again but this time it told me that was due to a lack of memory, it needs at least 25Mb, rather than just locking up.
So after deleting a couple of apps it installed OK. Haven't noticed any major changes so far other than the Twitter for HTC Sense now logs in OK and I have got Twitter back in my Friendstream.
But be warned it did delete all my text messages, not a major disaster for me luckily, so back 'em up if you need to keep them.
Mine has been playing up too. They have a 2 year warranty, so sending it off before that expires at end of this month.
Yesterday I got round to upgrading my desire to Gingerbread - stock HTC rom from their website.
This of course doesn't have google play, but "market" instead. When I opened it for the first time the T+Cs page said google play, but I still only have market. Similarly if I go in to the help within the app that shows as google play.
Am I right in thinking I just need to wait for an OTA update to upgrade it to google play ? Or can I force it in some way ? Requesting phone updates does nothing.
