htc_touch_proThis firmware update was released 16th February 2009 so it’s not very new but it solves many of the issues I have had with my HTC Touch Pro. It’s quite easy to do this update and it can be downloaded from the HTC official support site. Just follow the instructions on this page. You need the serial number to download this firmware upgrade, this is located under the battery.

What issues does this firmware update solve? It is listed 5 specific issues on the download page that will be solved by updating to this firmware version.

1. The display of TouchFLO 3D sometimes may appear cracked.
2. When taking a picture, the auto focus function may malfunction in some circumstances.
3. In some circumstances, the preview screen will become black after taking picture.
4. In some circumstances, the device may hang while loading TouchFLO 3D.
5. When hanging up a phone call, there may be a delay in the display response.

I have experienced issue 1, 4 and 5 on my phone, but after updating to this firmware version I have not been troubled any more :) and I really hope that it will stay this way.

Edit: After using my phone for about one week with this firmware update I have experienced so many bugs and issues that I wrote a post about it.

    Did you notice if the default Java ME font size was changed after the ROM update?

  2. I will test that later today. I have the standard mBricks Demo app, downloaded from, installed. The font size in this J2ME application has been very small and quite hard to read. I will test this later and get back to you.

  3. The default Java ME font size did not change after the ROM update. When downloading the device was not recognized so I selected HTC Touch Diamond.

  1. […] I have experienced a few bugs on my phone. The worst one have appeared 2-3 times during this month and is that the screen is filled with white noise and it’s impossible to see anything on the screen. The only way to get the phone back to normal is to actually remove the battery and restart it. The second bug is that sometimes when I get an incoming call the display does not show me who is calling. This can be fixed by updating the firmware. […]

  2. […] was very positive when I found that they had released a firmware update (earlier post about updating HTC Touch Pro firmware) and I thought that this would solve my issues. It did but… it also introduced new […]
