can I upgrade Android 2.2 to something newer on HTC Detail?

Squareup will no longer support android 2.2 or older and the whole reason i have my phone and ting account is to use squareup. Is it possible to get a more recent version on this phone? How would i go about doing that? I'm just barely tech savvy enough to use the phone and I get easily frustrated with how difficult stuff that seems like it should be straight forward seems to be when dealing with software updates.

  • Actually, HTC never released anything newer than 2.2 (FroYo) for the Detail even though 2.3 (Gingerbread) was released for the EVO Shift 4G when the Detail was released.
    You may be able to install CyanogenMod, but keep the modem file for the Detail. It appears different than the Shift and nobody has risked bricking the phone by installing a Shift modem file.
    I know about this because I bought 2 Details from Ting and still have one of them.
