myTouch 4G Gingerbread Update Pilot Starting, Broader Rollout Happens After

UPDATE: Just thought I would bring this to the main page again, seeing as to how T-Mobile has posted it on Facebook

Oh myTouch 4G fans I’m looking for your attention right now as the official T-Mobile support forums has gone and dropped a surprise on us by offering up a release date for Gingerbread! That’s right on July 20th the test pilot will begin allowing customers who request the update to receive it beginning on that day. A broader rollout for myTouch 4G customers will begin after that and continue throughout the end of the year. So yeah…myTouch 4G customers have finally found their Gingerbread…congrats! Check the shot above for improvements like various software and stability improvements!

    Mike,

    I followed your instructions on flashing 2.3.4. I’ve always had s=off and root. The update unrooted my phone but somehow kept s=off. Is there any way to get it back? Visionary does not work and Gingerbreak just sits there indefinitely trying with no success.

    Thanks,

    N

    Sorry to be a total noob, but I was trying to confirm that if I have the normal myTouch from T-Mobile as it came, am I able to install the upgrade myself?  I know, there are a lot of posts about it, but I tried to start my phone while pressing the down volume to get to the screen to update with the zip file, but no luck.

    So, if someone can dumb it down for me and guide me through the install, I would be ultra grateful.

    Thanks.

      Hey did it wipe your phone and how is the battery life

      • bigpoppa408

        Battery life seems better. It did wipe but when I entered in my Google account all my apps were restored. All my pictures and vids remained on my SD card.

    Finally loaded it. 

    Am I correct that this version of 2.3.4 doesn’t have the GOOGLE TALK video and voice app?

      How long did it take to update the mytouch 4g and how is the battery life and did it change the app draw?

      • Davcole115

        Haven’t really had the chance to evaluate the battery life. No changes to the app drawer.

      Yeah, but the 2.3.4 is the version that allows for audio/video conversation. Have you been able to use videocalling?

      I installed the MT4G update, then installed netflix 1.3, and after running the app, it goes to a white screen. Any suggestions?

    Is anyone having trouble with their micro SD card with this update?  I keep getting “SD card unexpectedly removed.”  I had no problems before the update.  Stock MT4G, Sandisk 16 GB micro SD card.

      I’m getting the same problem on my htc amaze. i have a 32gb card and it keeps giving me the same error.

    Anyone been getting force closes/errors on Faves after this update? Seems like it does it about once a day, which causes your SMS to close, if you try to open them back up to txt it will show none of your messages, you have to restart the phone to get your past messages back.
