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!

      I’m pretty sure that there should be a check for update option in the settings

        No there isn’t. It just shows froyo.

  • With all the ROMs around there for the MT4G. I’m really not comming back. But despite of all this are good news.!

  • Matt

    It’s funny. Ever since I rooted I haven’t been keeping up on any stock MT4G news and I figured they’d already gotten the update. Good news though glad TMO and HTC are continuing to provide updates.

    ive had gingerbread on my phone for about a month now (mytouch 4g) but glad to see they are finally rolling it out. I just know by rooting my phone and putting cyanogen mod 7 , it had increased my battery life by at least 25 percent.

    • Rashad3g

      That’s what I’m trying to find out. Cause I know its not as easy as asking Santa.

    • Is there any way to download the updated and flash it our selfs, since  I am currently stationed outside the U.S for the next year or more and I will not be connected to the Tmobile network anytime soon…

      Please let me know

    I asked tmobile about the test rollout. They said call HTC. Called htc. They said call T-Mobile. Called t-mobile, got someone who knew what they were talking about and was really nice. They searched all over and said they couldn’t find info about it, except for that it starts July 20th and continues for 3 weeks. Then they will work out bugs, and a little while later send an update to everyone. And she said it wont be pushed, but you will receive a text message with a download link to the update. I asked about signing up and she said its not that type of thing, its selected randomly. hope that answers ur questions!

    • Chatter

      Gracias Senor. Hope this happens quickly and efficiently.

    Well I guess this is good news. I’ve had a MT4G since the end of November and I was lucky enough to get the “good” screen type 2 but unfortunately a pixel burned out in the top left of my screen so I called Tmobile to replace it. They’ve sent me two phones with the type 1 horrible screen which I keep sending back until I get another one with the good sceen but today a new phone came with the bad screen and I called up to get a new one and usually they come one day after you call but…

    the rep today said that they are on back order i wouldn’t get another one for 7-10 business days and she said “we have the new ones with the new screen and software but we need to replenish our supply”. I took the “new software” thing as just a slip up and a sign that she didn’t know what she was talking about (she didn’t) but now that i’ve seen this maybe she was right all along…

    I don’t know if this is related, but I just checked the market on my stock ROM mytouch 4G and it let me download and install the official netflix app. It still isn’t listed though at this time.
    It’s not all good though, I can run the app and login fine, look through movies and stuff, but nothing will actually play.

    I got tired of waiting and put 2.3 on mine using a custom Cyanogen ROM. Netflix works great. HTC takes too long to roll out updates sometimes. I was pretty annoyed that the dead g2 with less RAM and a slower processor got 2.3 before the MT4g.

    • Onfire2222

      correction the t mobile g2 does not have gingerbread yet. Only a select few replacement phones have it. Also the gingerbread update for the g2 was announced back in may so i would have hoped it would have gotten it before the my touch 4g that started to get the release as soon as it was announced.

  • i use a nexus one as my primary with the mt4g reverted to stock after running cm7.  I’m interested to see what they do with gingerbread.  Bet you dollars to donuts the bloatware still lingers and runs in the background.  I also was hoping to see a “4G” network status indicator switch from “H.”  Here’s to hoping.  If only I had a Sensation..

      Same here, except I only temproot with Visionary and deduct the bloatware (which stays deducted even if not temprooted on next boot).  This would disappear with Gingerbread because Visionary doesn’t support it.   So, I will elect to not update.  Good phone other than bloat.  But I had to load the original Android mail client to get it to work with Exchange 2010; why is TMobile admitting only now that it’s their fault it didn’t work originally?

      I just did it, it works. It’s 2.3.4. Fyi it factory resets your phone. Your sd card contents will be fine though. Once you sign in with your gmail account all your contacts will be recovered. No sense 3.0 for those of you who want to know. My phone wasn’t rooted. So yes, this is legit.

          I was trying to help unlike you who apparently just enjoys insulting people all day.  I thought it was common knowledge that if you restore a zip from the bootloader it wipes everything except the SD card but you would know that if you weren’t such a noob.  And if you are going to attempt something like this you should at least educate yourself about the dangers and risks and not just follow my instructions blindly.

    I got the update yesterday I think the actual file size was around 200mb. As far as I can tell it is running smother then the previous version and it changed the “H” to “4G”.

    • You cannot request it. The update that was sent out was to a small number of myTouch 4G users. A test build to find the bugs. Once the testing period is over, then T-Mobile will send the official bug-less build to all customers.

      Note: The OTA time frame was from July 21st, to the end of the year. It’s coming.

    Another thing I’ve discovered with the update, you can download the latest version of the netflix app (find it on xda) and it works!

      How did u get the update ? & is it stable no root right?

      • Ex-SKLX09-User

        Read the comments below, I followed the instructions that have been posted 5+ times.

        I had a completely stock mytouch4g, had no issues just wanted the update and since it was too easy (didn’t need to root or do any special tinkering) I did it myself.

        Other then it wiping the phone fresh and losing everything, I’ve had no problems. It isn’t rooted, as far as I know this is the update that is going out now, only difference is I bet if you get an update officially it isn’t going to wipe your phone.

    • Kyle Phillips

      Just got Netflix on mine and the streaming works great. And yeah, you’ll have to download the apk. Once I updated, the app disappeared from the market and no way to access it from the market through any web browser.

    This dickwads file will FACTORY RESET YOUR PHONE!
    I am shocked that David is allowing this crap on their forum.

      It’s really not that big of a deal. Besides I’d rather get Gingerbread now with a factory reset than wait months for T-Mobile to push it to me.

    • Kyle Phillips

      Honestly a factory reset of the phone is nothing. You can redownload everything, and all your sdcard contents are safe. I have 2.3.4 right now, I gladly factory reset my phone to do this. I am very grateful for what he has offered. Beyond all the improvements the best thing is my mytouch 4g can now stream with the Netflix app.

    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,

    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?

    • Streetz

      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?

    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. 

    • Tderilo

      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.
