myTouch 3G Receiving Software Update, Allows For Google Security Fix

Lookout original myTouch 3G owners, we’re going back in time today as T-Mobile has released some info on a software update heading your way. Unfortunately, this update is rather “minor” as updates go, but it does allow for the application of a Google security fix. Unfortunately for any myTouch 3G owners out there, Google no longer supports Android 2.2.1 Froyo for any further OS updates, however this update is just a bug fix so you’re receiving it anyway.

I do love how T-Mobile adds in “If you have a T-Mobile myTouch 3G and would like a newer software version, please consider a handset upgrade to a newer and faster device.” Yes, if you are using a myTouch 3G, it is time to consider new hardware. In fact, you should be considering the purchase of a new device right this very minute to get something a little more “with the times.” In the interim, enjoy your Google security fix!

    I have a Google branded version of this device running some version of Cyanogen based on 2.2. It’s not my main phone, but it’s still a decent little device. It’s kind of funny to remember that just a couple years ago you could have a major high-end Android device released without a headphone jack.

    I’m impressed that HTC cared enough to push this out.  Samsung wouldn’t have.

    I am still using my Moto Cliq.  I need to put Cyanogenmod on it…2.1.1 will I get a security fix or should I just feel InSecure in perpetuity?

    Does anyone know anything more about this security issue?  What other phones/OS versions are affected, for instance?

    Still using mine right now. Lol. Just waiting for either the Ville or the Endeavor. Not a big fan of Samsung. Nice screens (if there’s no bluish tint) and processors but not build material.
