Well, with all of the delay, I definitely thought it was another case of misinformation, however, I've done the update and it's well worth the wait, an excellent upgrade from what I've seen of it so far.
I'll try the camcorder tomorrow. But it's improved the speed & usability of it 100%, Nokia, Apple eat your heart out.
how to save apps on SD CARD:
if u can complete the following steps u can then save most of your apps to the sd card .
i am able to now move most of my apps to the sd card .
I just spent an hour figuring this out.
and get the SDK for your OS
-Once you download it, unzip it to its own folder, I put it off C:\
-Run the SDK Setup.exe
-Click available Packages, on left, install all the packages for froyo 2.2. Although I do suspect that we only need the USB driver, which is at the very bottom.
It will take forever to install.
After it's done installing, I Clicked on Installed Packages, and update all.
Not done yet.
check that the phone is set up to allow debugging via USB (Settings⇒Applications⇒Development⇒USB debugging)
Plug in your phone
Windows will fail to install the driver.
Go in device manager and and update the newly Yellowed entry, the driver is in:
C:\android-sdk_r06-windows\android-sdk-windows\usb_driver or your original downloaded location
The driver should install
then open command prompt in windows .(type cmd in run line or click start and look for run )
cd C:\android-sdk_r06-windows\android-sdk-windows\tools or where ever your original sdk is unzipped .
and then type
> adb devices
if you see a serial number starting with an "H" that means you got things working, now do the following:
> adb shell pm setInstallLocation 2
This command will push ALL apps to your sd card .
you will see that the button for move to sd card will now not be grayed out and u will be able to move apps now to sd card .
to reverse the above type
> adb shell pm setInstallLocation 0
i updated my Desire and wow the 720p video recording is pretty unusable, choppy like hell... but why should they test it right?...

bogdan, 01 Aug 2010@ cristi in romania too? Where did u get it the update i mean, becauae i can't find it can u p... moreTo do the update...
Do this: Menu - Settings - About phone - System software updates - Check now.
Be aware the update file is 90Mb so if you have a Wi-Fi connection use that as it will be cheaper & quicker. That's the way I did mine & it was downloaded in about 3 mins & installed in 5 mins.
Snoopy, 01 Aug 2010It is quite possible that apps need to support moving to sd card. New system alone will not do... moreYour right there mate, thought developers knew this feature was comming, you'd think they'd get a move on and add it.
dan, 01 Aug 2010Just updated my phone. But my market does not want too work! Help pleaseGive it a minute - it should catch up
@ cristi in romania too? Where did u get it the update i mean, becauae i can't find it can u post a link for the 2.2 froyo update? Thank you
just updated my silver uk desire and I live in Hong Kong..
Could somebody please explain the different video recorder encoding. which one is the best??
just updated my desire to 2.2. 720p recording at 60 htz in mpeg or h264!
Much faster general operations,loads of updates,the best phone just got better!
Was able to download froyo in the middle east :) (using a UK-bought desire)
Arabic supported now... letters not joined though
It is quite possible that apps need to support moving to sd card. New system alone will not do the trick. PS. I have similar situation. Plus one of the apps (Copilot) stopped to work at all after upgrade to 2.2.
question, 01 Aug 2010does it have 720p recording now?Yes 720 is available a bit disappointed though there's not that many apps u can send to SD card. I have 15 apps and I can only send 3
