T-Mobile G2 and MyTouch 4G In-Store Gingerbread Updates Begin August 6th

If you haven’t been able to pull down the Gingerbread update for your T-Mobile G2 and MyTouch 4G, T-Mobile’s not going to leave you waiting in the dark. Nope, instead they’ll soon be allowing you to get your updates over-the-wire in-store. It’s a bit of an inconvenience, sure, but if you’ve gotten sick of all that dairy in 2.2 and are ready for Gingerbread, it’ll be well worth it. August 6th is said to be the start date so be sure to carve some time out of your day and take care of that. [T-Mobile 1|2 via PhoneArena]

    How about T Mobile resolving the massive battery drain that some HTC devices have experienced since last week? Gingerbread does not mean squat if the battery does not last more than 6 hours……Way down from the 48 hours I used to get between charges.

      I went in yesterday to T-Mobile to ask them about it, or maybe somehow get a phone replacement. I have the G2 and so does my sister, our batteries have been literally draining within about 4 hours of taking it off the charger, with practically no use. They heat up really bad as well. I have read online and have thought that it could be from the phone constantly on the look out for the update, but I will online know when I get it. The lady said that it is because my battery is so old, I have had the phone since October, and I actually bought 2 1800mA batteries for my phone and it is doing the same thing on those two batteries, so it isn’t my phone. There was a huge line in the store and I saw multiple people complaining about their batteries draining extremely fast. Mine actually stopped accepting a charge it would get so hot.

      They really need to do something about this.

    You can also grab the OTA download manually, download URLs available at http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=16302332&postcount=313 (official Google server download) and http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=16302636&postcount=326 (MediaFire upload of the same file). Update process is the usual for manual (put on SD card as update.zip, reboot to recovery, apply update).

    I read some articles online about august 5th gingerbread update in retail stores. I went into a retail store today before work and the guy had no clue what I was talking about. He asked me where I heard about it and I told him it was even on their website. Hmmm. Frustrated customer!
