AnonD-13835, 14 Jul 2011Yes! the official gingerbread update for HTC desire Z is now available, I just downloaded it@Johan: By the way, can you tell me where did you downloaded it?is it custom rom or official rom?
Updated to 2.3.3. My comment on news article:
So, i updated my phone an here are some benchmarks:
#Benchmark name, Android 2.2, Android 2.3, Increase
Benchmark Pi, 1307, 1409, +7%
Fps2D, 57.5, 57.5, 0%
Linpack for Android (single thread), 33.54183, 33.85933, +0.95%
Linpack for Android (multi thread), 28.848, 29,143166, +1%
Neocore, 57.63, 57.63, 0%
Quadrant Standard, 1512.66, 1350.33, -10,7%
First thing i like in new android is tabbed notification area. With Quick Settings tab i can manage my connections very fast and i don't need a widget anymore on my screen to manage these connections. For some reason HTC Picasa Web Albums process is crashing constantly, i mean all the time. I force close it and after a while it crashes again. About tests - all these test results are average of 6 runs and done after restart of system. Most of tests show a small increase of score but Quadrant somehow shows decrease of score. I'm not sure why. On android 2.2, Quadrant was above Nexus One and I was very happy about it, but on 2.3.3, it's about the same.
I am in Estonia and I got update number 242.405.2, not the same as mentioned in this article. This is the new update, there wasn't any yesterday.
One thing more about notification area Quick Settings. I had already one problem with connection to mobile data. I checked it and it started to connect to but something went wrong i guess and it said "Turning on..." and nothing happened. Then I tried to uncheck it and check it again to try again, but it wouldn't uncheck it. I had to use a widget to disconnect and connect again.
So, overall, I expected a lot more from this update and looks like HTC needs to do some more works on (atleast) that version. I really hope that atleast battery life gets a little bit better.
Guys update is arrived in holland so update friends!!!!!

Official 2.3 android for desire z available. I am from Lithuania.
in your opinion which is the best ROM to available for desire z?
Yes, rooting and flashing new roms is pretty much risk free, just make sure u read first, go to xda developers site.
Also overclocking allows you to underclock when the screen is off, improving battery life. The batterry lasts lomger now than the stock rom. Dont be worried about doing it as u wont regret it..
