Want FroYo for you Desire? Where there’s a will…

There’s a way, and this way is by using Unrevoked 3.1.

Those familiar with iPhones and the mysterious art of jailbreaking will be pleased to know that there’s a similar process for Android phones, known as rooting. Using Unrevoked – available for PC, Mac and Linux – allows users to install Android 2.2 (also known as FroYo) onto their handset.

Here at the Geek and Gadget we warn that you should exercise extreme caution when rooting; the bloke behind this software told a phone journalist that you need to a find a “hooky 2.2 rom and an updated driver for the HTC radio”.

So if you’re comfortable doing that – and we might just be after a few pints later – then you can update to 2.2 months before HTC get around to pushing it out. 2.2 brings wireless tethering – a must for any Wi-Fi iPad owners out there and a whole bunch of other updates.

Let us know how you get on; just don’t come crying to us if you break your phone.
