Did HTC ever make 2.3 available for the Desire?

Did O2 UK ever pass this on to their customers?

Reason I ask is that my mum has a Desire and it says it’s 2.29 (can’t remember the next bit sorry and currently not able to access it) and no updates available – could have sworn HTC releasing updates since then.

Had some horrible trouble after rooting it once before and it had to be warranty repaired by HTC – although the rooting may have had nothing to do with the fault, I’m adverse to trying it again!No network has ever released 2.3 as an Over The Air update. It was only ever (somewhat reluctantly) made available via the HTCDev website, and isn’t even there still (though you can still find it at shipped-roms.com).

If you want to do the 2.3 update it requires downloading the package and running a program on a PC, with the phone connected by usb. It will remove all O2 branding and apps, but will also do a factory reset of the phone, so all user data that are not backed-up will be lost.

I’m sure that there won’t be any significant official updates for the Desire from now on.HTC plans to update its One X, One S, and One XL smartphones with Android 4.1, also known as Jelly Bean, the company confirmed to Engadget today.
HTC confirmed the upgrade plans, but unfortunately didn’t provide any specific detail on timing to CNET.
The company also said the updates would come to versions sold by AT&T, T-Mobile, and Rogers.Updates to the latest version of Android have been a sore spot for consumers and handset vendors. They often come frustratingly slow, held up by the carrier approval process, as well as the need to integrate the new version of Android with the custom skin. In HTC’s case, it’s the Sense user interface that adds an extra wrinkle to the process.
The One series of smartphones is an important component to HTC’s comeback plans. The phones are framed as its top line of smartphones, and was an attempt to simplify its lineup into fewer, better products. The company, however, has continued to make other products including the Evo 4G LTE and Droid Incredible 4G LTE.
There was no word on whether those phones would get an update.The ROM and the instructions provided in this guide are compatible only with the 1.5GHz dual-core HTC One S model. It will not work with the 1.7GHz Snapdragon S3 variant or any other device.
IBTimes UK advises users to backup apps, important data and settings to avoid data loss while installing the Jelly Bean update.
Make sure to unlock the bootloader and install ClockworkMod Recovery on your HTC One S before proceeding with the ROM installation guide.
Download and install the HTC Sync software, which is required to install the USB drivers for the phone. Ignore this step if HTC Sync is already installed on your computer. Download HTC Sync Manager.
