myTouch 4G Gingerbread Update Coming Soon?

T-Mobile myTouch 4G users rejoice as GIngerbread is set to be delivered to your Android device sometime during the second quarter of this year. As we can see by the image above one of our esteemed readers (Thanks Michael!) managed to get an HTC Tech Support rep to “admit” the myTouch 4G will receive a Gingerbread update. This happened not once but twice as you can see in the timeframe boxes.

Furthermore, we’ve received word that myTouch 4G Champions also known as T-Mobile retail employees who are among the most knowledge myTouch 4G sales reps are being given an opportunity to test out Gingerbread within the next few weeks. A public launch would come shortly after that test period is complete. We’re only two weeks into the second quarter so we’ve got all of May and June to sit back and wait for this to arrive. Hopefully HTC has better luck than Samsung in pushing out updates.

    Yess…and your welcome!! Haha, if its gonna be tested for like a month then pushed out within a month after that that could make us the first htc phone to get gingerbread in the USA…right?

    Will Gingerbread finally allow me to enter a proxy URL so my wireless connection at work will actually, well, work?

    That would be funny if the MT4G got it before the G2! so much for fast vanilla updates ;)

    • Anonymous

      I would be a little miffed if the MT4G got Gingerbread before the G2. That’s why I got the G2 (and the hardware keyboard). At least we know that the update will be coming. I wonder how long it will take for Samsung and Motorola to release Gingerbread to their phones (my guess is Christmas)…

      • Tortionist

        I don’t have to worry about an update. You guys will still be behind me since i’m rooted running on Android 2.3.3. With a sweet ROM, also running at 1.6 Ghz speed, So read that and weep.

  • TMoGuy

    Awesome! Been waiting for gingerbread since I got the mytouch 4G

  • Cruzantis

    I just feel my pants are soaked wet. Lets just hope that the espresso ui gets upgraded and the battery issues get resolved. I want it to last longer maybe theyll change something in the kernel; anyway i just want this phone to be more than the piece of crap it is now!

    10 hours battery life with little to no use, no rogue apps while having full 5 signal bars and not having hspa coverage which means am in edge 99% of the time thats a no go and a big piece of garbage of a phone. The iphone 4 of my friend lasts the whole day doing the same tasks as my mytouch. I personally tested.

    Gingerbread better fix this piece of junk or ill just buy a BB or maybe a nokia, whats the point on having a smartphone that is so dumb to waste resources like a V12 900HP Race car. two months ago i had an accident late at night and my super mytouch 4g had no charge cause it didnt outlast a freaking day and i had to ask a stranger to make a simple phonecall. to make things worse that day i barely touch the phone knowing i was gonna come home late, but the damn phone just drained the battery what a waste of 200 bucks…..

    • Foggyavenger

      i use battery booster 3 days battery life with wifi on when screen unlocked try it and quit whining it’s like if you run your car at 90 mph you run out of gas sooner than you do if you run at 20 mph

      • Ktwist

        He’s got a point, Im a mytouch rep and I won’t even use this phone anymore. I discovered a glitch in the software that makes the cpu run at full speed 1024mhz and drain the phone in as little as six hrs without even touching the phone. I first noticed my phone start to lag so I used system panel app to see what program was draining the power. The pie chart that shows cpu usage in live time was maxed out and would not fluctuate back down and idol. Only thing that restored cpu back to normal was to hold the power button and hit restart. No other android phone has a system restart built in, they all just have power down options so I assume htc built this in for a reason. I even contacted an htc rep and he admitted the problem but had no fix. I don’t think its affecting all mytouches but half my customers are reporting the same problem. Only fix I know is just to restart it immediatly when you see it lag. Problem is if you have it in your pocket turned off, you may never notice till your battery I’d drained. Another option is just to root the phone but I’m not going to push a phone to customers that has problems that can only be fixed with rooting.

        • Smooth3d

          All HTC Sense 2.0+ based roms have the restart option. As for as cpu running always on full, this is the 1st I’ve heard of this. If the battery is getting fully drained in 6 hrs sitting idol there is a rogue app draining the phone.

        • Ktwist

          Yeah i had no apps installed on it except system panel app and the main draw of power it told me was the android system at an astounding 33%. Its usually at 2% or less. A master reset did not help either, so I just went back to my galaxy. I have system panel app installed on it too and have no problems. I did root the phone eventually and the battery lasts 15hrs so I felt comfortable selling it. Like I said before, I think it only affects a few and not all mytouches. The people complaining about battery life I assume are having this problem unfortunately. PS: The new g2x is my next phone, I played with this yesterday and I couldn’t bog it down with 20 apps running, camera and nova running, the phone is crazy fast. Wish it came with an sd card and hdmi cord but I can’t complain about this beast.

        • eYe

          Android “suspend process” issue. Just because you did not hear about it, doesn’t mean it’s not affecting some people.
          Google “Android, issue 11126.”

        • http://www.facebook.com/hsichan Hsi Chan

          A lot of custom ROM’s have the Reboot option in the power menu. I think its for convenience, not so much as a remedy for the lag issue you mentioned.

        • Anonymous

          The reboot is there because the phone also has fastboot. I get great battery life.

        • Stewie

          I have noticed that around 3-4 hours after charging my MT4G, there is severe battery drain. When you look at the battery info, Android OS, which typically uses less than 5%, consumes a lot of resources unexplicably. I haven’t figured out how to stop it other than a restart. Even a “kill all” from System Panel does not help. I stopped trying to figure it out, so I just make it a point to restart the phone right after charging. Once I do that, I have no problem getting through the day.

    • Smooth3d

      Oh Boo Hoo cry me a river!!! Jeesh, The Mytouch 4g actually has good batt life for a powerful android phone.

    • http://www.facebook.com/hsichan Hsi Chan

      My Mytouch 4G lasts a little over a day with moderate use on the stock Expresso ROM. Did you try a factory data reset to cure the excessive battery consumption issue? Have you checked to see if your battery is in fact defective?

      As for the HSPA issues, I think thats something that you should have checked with T-Mobile first before you purchased the device. If T-Mobile did in fact promise HSPA in your area, then you can speak with a TMobile CSR to end the contract early.

      • Neverthesheep

        please do not comment/advise on things you have no real clue about. If tmobile doesnt offer HSPA in his area he cant call them and get out of his contract. smdh…..

      • Anon

        LOL on the second paragraph…

    • eYe

      If you don’t have 3G/4G coverage- feel free to turn it off in the settings and use Edge only. You phone keeps looking for better signal all the time and that’s a big part of your problem. I myself can make my battery last 30+ hours with good signal but it will drain on the average of %10 every hour when I have bad signal. Tested and proven.

  • Frigadroid

    Speaking of samsung are they working on an update to fix the last update or just abandoning the vibrant? :o(

    Now this is great news!!! I was wondering why every device but the MyTouch 4G was getting Gingerbread love :) Now lets just hope that some new Sense 3.0 features will hit the device with this update as well as better battery life.

    • Anonymous

      I think I saw it on Engadget somewhere that Sense 3.0 will only be compatible with post “Sensation” handsets.

      • Anonymous

        They didn’t say it would only be compatible with sensation handsets and higher. They said that not every device released prior to the sensation will be compatible with 3.0. They didn’t blow every phone pre sensation out of the water, but probably stated it diplomatically and you may be correct in assuming that’s the case.

      • Guest

        That makes “sense”

    I’ve got the Sammysung Galaxy S 4G and its a little faster than the MyTouch 4G and the Sammysung display is slightly better, but the Mytouch is overall the better phone hands down.
    Especially in the internal memory category.

    • @j_nathaniel

      Faster? Reeeeeaaaallly?

      • Stoney Jonez

        MT4G is definitely faster than the Galaxy S phones AND the Nexus 1/S, in everything except max bandwidth. If you have a Mytouch 4G that is slower, something is wrong lol.

    • Rob

      I don’t believe the Galaxy S 4g can touch the mytouch 4g in speeds UNLESS your talking strictly about download speeds. But opening apps, web surfer and the everyday little things the MT4G is definitely faster.

      I compared my Nexus S to the Galaxy S4g the other day side by side and my nexus was noticeably faster in everything (including browsing) except when you actually tested the download speed. GS4G beat it there pretty good, and I get great speeds at my house where we were testing usually around 4mbps on my nexus I’ve seen upwards of 5mbps. If I remember correctly the GS4g was getting around 8mbps, so big difference there. BUT, if we would open the browser and type in a site my nexus would load the page faster and I guarantee the MT4G would too thing is ridiculously fast, HTC makes great devices, and I think th e MT4G is just a little snappier than the Nexus S from what I’ve seen.

      Also my cousins GS4G was having numerous operational problems since he bought it. He has to restart it on a consistent basis because he loses internet connection and has had some freezing issues.

    • Anonymous

      The screen is “slightly” better huh? Worlds apart IMO.

    • Anon

      LOL! I own both. SGS 3g & 4g are miles ahead of MT4G except for the obvious fact that the GPS on the SGS sucks and MT4G picks it up almost instantly. Screen quality on SGS beats any other phone out there unless youre visually impaired. Everythng is super smooth on the sammy. I have over 200 apps (incl preloaded apps) and its still smooth as butter. Installed same apps on the MT and lol… try it and youll see. Graphically, the SGS cant be beat. Pics and vids on the sammy are superb. Wish i could say the same for the MT. Either way… to each their own.

      The screen alone was the deciding factor on sticking with the SGS and everything else is a bonus.

    I am a user of a ‘stock’ android phone (Nexus S), which I think all android phones should be. As long as companies bring out ‘skinned’ versions of android, I won’t ever pick one up. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve purchased almost ever phone that T-Mobile has put on the table with android, (except the Behold II, lol.), but they could never replace my current phone. I’m not bashing the phone itself, but I am not a fan of skinned android phones. Glad that they are giving GB 2.3 to this phone and others though. I’m sure it will help speed up the phone…

    • Anonymous

      You can easily get rid of the skin in most cases. I understand people prefer stock, I do myself, but to say you’ll never buy one with a skin, you’re really limiting your choices. There isn’t many stock Android phones at any given time, unfortunately.

    • Anonymous

      Those of us “in the know” keep bashing the skins, and making updates take longer but we are too narrow minded in our thinking. I have several friends who don’t know what a “skin” is or what version of Android they have. In fact, when they receive their updates, I’ve asked them what they think and 90% of the time they can’t even tell the difference. I don’t blame them! I’m running CM7 and there is not a huge difference in Gingerbread compared to Froyo. Seriously, sometime you guys make the updates seem like leaps and bounds. I could live without Gingerbread right now and it certainly isn’t a make or break for me at all. It was mostly released to provide a better overall experience and optimization for dual core phones that are just starting to come out. People notice the skins more than they do the Android version they have. That is why the manufactures do it and honestly I don’t blame them. I like HTC’s sense and they have even better things planned for their next version. I even miss some of it with CM7 and may even consider going to the release update of gingerbread and getting sense back, who knows. My point is to start thinking from a consumer standpoint and not a techie standpoint and you will have a better idea of the way the market rolls.

      • Nexus Guy

      • sino8r

        I agree… 2.3 is nothing more than 2.2 with a ugly black/green skin on top. Something you can easily achieve by flashing a theme. The text selecter and menus have improved but that’s it really!

    Once again, to reiterate to all of you freaking out about Gingerbread, it’s not that big of a difference.

  • Gm Aharrington1

    I love how something about the my touch and people include other phones in the discussion. First off I have every android phone released on atmosphere and vzw. Mt4g has no battery issue unless your battery is defective. Next, everyone has buyers remorse because we have no time to enjoy our devices. Also, rooting a phone when it’s under warranty is foolish. You just voided it and will be the first to gripe. Even to us that make roms.

      No battery issues for MyTouch 4G huh? Just because YOU don’t have any doesn’t mean other people aren’t having them. Take a read or google it…

      Just to name a few, I’ve had two MyTouch 4G’s and I’m on the 2nd battery of the 2nd phone, still have the mysterious ‘suspend’ battery drain problem, it’s a huge problem, and a huge pain in the butt, and lots of people are experiencing it. We are just hoping that upgrading the software would help solve this problem, as it is a software problem, not a defective battery.

        dude i have the mt4g and my battery isnt all that great but no android phone ive ever had, has ever had good battery life period. they just dont seem to care about battery life. its all about performance but one day i hope they start making smart phones that have better battery life. it would be very nice.

        • SUPAPUCH

          The best battery life I’ve had was from by BlackBerry Curve 8320 (T-Mobile version). I could easily go two days without charging the thing and I had Wi-Fi calling on all the time, which on the my myTouch 4G (HTC Glacier) the battery life gets sucked down doing nothing.

          A solution I have been using is SetCPU, which requires rooting. When I’m not using the phone, I completely underclock the phone to 245MHz, which helps a bit on battery life.

      • Gm Aharrington1

        Ok I can pull information as well. The point is the battery is not the issue. I have made more than my fair share of ROM’s And I have the same battery in my devices. Guess what? The battery in all my devices with all my ROM’s Last for no less than ten hours of constant use. Second, these cell phones are more than the 200 dollars we are getting them for as an upgrade, new service or whatever. How do you think they are capable of making money when the product they sell costs more to make than what they get from the end user buying it? Easy, from accesories and the hope that people stay loyal to the carrier for two years and they continue to buy from the same manufacturer. It is simple Economics that was taught in high school. Atleast in the public high school I went to in the ghetto.

        • Gm Aharrington1

          Also if blame should be pointed at anything it should go to the people responsible. The manufacturer of the OS and their quick manufacturing of a ROM to make us think we need something new or else we have buyer’s remorse because there will Always be a new device and OS. Easy solution is make an OS that lasts and doesn’t have 3 or 4 or 5 versions.

        Reset phone after each charge, it fixed my battery life problem.

    • DatNizzle

      The “warranty voided” argument again? It’s easier to unroot your phone than root it. Unrooting is a two step job.
      I returned a phone whose warranty was voided. I let the bootloader flash the recovery image. I guess I reinstituted the warranty?
      So considering that returning a phone you have rooted is not a problem, you would be a fool to try and root while not under warranty, can’t return it if you mess up. I know people that have returned bricks.

    I was running CM7 but I like a lot of the Sense stuff, not all of it, but some. I went back to stock, but the battery life is terrible compared with CM7.

  • casualrepartee

    I was waiting impatiently for the 2.3 update to my MT4G until gingerbread hit my N1. Honestly, the update isn’t anything to throw a party over, but its a step. That said, in lieu of waiting for the official gingerbread MT4G update, I opted to perm root and flash CM7. For those of you who lack the technical wherewithal, stay away! But if you don’t mind educating yourself and figuring out the nuts and bolts, CM7 is what stock android should be. Simple, battery frugal, and with all the customization options neither Google nor the carriers want us to have, because inevitably some idiot would blow out the speaker by jacking up the EQ settings, or cook the phone by overclocking too much, and the carriers don’t want to deal with the hassle of warranty claims. If you’re at all intelligent, you should take the plunge to CM7.

  • tikiesel

    Can’t wait, I hope Gingerbread fixes many of the problems MT4G has. I downloaded Seepu just to monitor things myself. Randomly through the day the CPU maxed out. It prevented me from using anything. I looked to see what apps were draining it but nothing came up. Nothing I tried helped but this explained why my battery would be completely dead before the end of the day. Had to do a factory reset. All of my previous apps are still used and now my battery barely makes it the whole day with light use but definitely an improvement. If you have sketchy service your battery can be dead in 4-5 hours. There are definite problems I have to carry my charger everywhere I go. I love the phone but hope for a few of the unseen improvements to come with Gingerbread.

    Hey y’all, unless you’re super excited about Sense for your phone (and I don’t see any reason to be, but that’s just a matter of opinion), there’s a ROM over at XDA that is AOSP Gingerbread. Meaning, not Cyanogenmod (which is amazing, but some people prefer pure Android), not a hodge-podge of “cooked” ROMs and themes and weird tweaks. It’s just Android, plain and simple, the way Google designed it. It’s also crazy fast compared to Sense (and no, I’m not referring to overclocking, either)

It’s just Android, plain and simple, the way Google designed it. It’s also crazy fast compared to Sense (and no, I’m not referring to overclocking, either)

    Well it’s about time, I hope they come out with it before the iPhone 5 comes out. The Ginger Bread update should fix a lot of the bugs, that people don’t want to talk about or admit that they have bugs in their phones.
    And why MyTouch 4G does not say “4G” anywhere on the phone task bar? When it goes from “EDGE” to “3G” to”H” and don’t tell me that HSPA+ is “4G” So do our phones really use “LTE” technology? or did we just get a taste of what is really coming next year?

    Any truth to the GINGERBREAD update available via sd card in store now? Called stores…they claim no knowledge.
