Departed from CrowdSupport as of 12 June 2013, when the fun factor for me had finally completely evaporated with all the recent site layout and functionality changes, and the apparent efforts to turn a community goodwill-powered vehicle into something closer to a customer service channel.
The opinions and sentiments expressed above are mine only, and do not necessarily reflect Telstra's views or position. I work at Telstra, but my participation here is strictly in a personal capacity as a fellow Australian telecommunications services consumer, and you can safely assume you are not my customer, client, patron, benefactor or friend when I post in this forum.

From Telstra's track record, I'd suggest you can expect to receive it about 6 months after HTC release it. However, if Telstra don't put all their junk back in (and they might not), you could get it only 4-6 weeks after HTC releases it.

Hi Soren, I've just tried the link that brings up the tab (http://www.telstra.com.au/mobile/phones/smartphone

Grab the HTC Desire Gingerbread release from here and enjoy. Official developer version from HTC
There is no Telstra branding on this, it requires no rooting, make sure you back everything up 1st as this is a factory reinstall.
The flashlight app is a seperate install and is part of the download files.
I find it works well, your mileage may vary obviously, but no regrets here. Faster, more storage space, some nice new features, better battery life, doesn't seem to run as hot.

Word of caution though - once you upgrade, there's no rolling back to previous versions without rooting your phone.
Battery usage varies also - numerous forums mention this.
All in all, as mentioned, runs much faster with less lag in some apps. Once I turned off the Quick Restart option, battery life improved dramtically as the phone could do a proper reboot with locking up the app causing the drain. IMHO

HTC are going to release the update of Gingerbread via Facebook.
I can only guess if this will include the Telstra information.

Hope this helps.
