Officially, you can't Orange aren't doing it.

Unofficially, all the info you need is here. You'll need to root the phone, but everything you need is there android.modaco.com/cat…on/

I've just (like 5 mins ago) updated mine from 2.1 to 2.2.

Its not that hard. Install Clockwork recovery, put a rom image on your sd card, boot into clockwork, pick the rom and that's it (that is a little simplified but if you have any doubts either ask here or on the forums of the other sites, that's how I found out how to do it)...

yeah it is a bit of a headache,i think that site makes it easier,just check the links on the left. but once you get a bit of it, youre on a roll, then it all comes together.:) you'll feel like a genius once youve done it !
worth it though,amazing little gadget

Cannot download. The content is not supported on this phone"

on the clocknow download



advice on the troubleshooting says to uninstall es file explorer and then re install i cant find that has been installed though

That's a bug with the Android Market. Try restarting the phone and trying again.

able to receive messages but not send

I did all mine with the help of the website (not the forum, confused me far too much!) and a computer and it all worked flawlessly, shame its not doing it for you. If you were nearby I'd do it for you, but I'm guessing Barnsie for Barnsley? Could be worth an ask on the Modaco forums if someone will do it for you? Nothing ventured, nothing gained and all that.
