The HTC Desire S RUU for Android 4.0 is now available in the HTCdev website (

Unfortunately (or is it?), region is set to (WWE - World Wide English)

My region is "038 - HTC India"

Will the WWE be compatible with my device or do I have to wait for a separate release for my region ?

WWE - World Wide English, this tells us it is meant for devices all over the world and is a generic update.

Is this true?
