On 14 June 2011, HTC announced via Facebook that there would be no Gingerbread update for the HTC Desire, citing memory constraints.
This is because HTC had been unable to fit both Gingerbread and HTC Sense together in the phone's 250 MB system partition.
Because of the strong similarity to the Nexus One "developer phone", the Desire enjoys a highly active third-party developer community.
The Desire subforum was one of the most active at xda-developers, and notably Cyanogen Mod and MIUI are available for the device.
During late Q2 2010, HTC made the decision to switch the Desire's display to a S-LCD panel, manufactured by the company S-LCD a co-operative between Sony and Samsung.
However, in situations when the screen is predominantly bright (such as when viewing many web pages), the AMOLED display uses more power.
The hardware is capable of high-definition (720p) video recording and playback; the 720p video recording feature has been added to the HTC Desire when updating to the official HTC modified Android 2.2 firmware.
WARNING The WRT54G v7 uses an Atheros AR2317 chip, has 2MB ROM, 8MB RAM and runs Vx Works.
This model also has a 128K compressed CFE so it will load micro_plus and micro_plus_ssh directly. The WRT54G(S) v4-v6 and WRT54GL v1.x have a BCM3302 v0.8 processor instead of a BCM3303 v0.7 with previous models.
