T-Mobile stores receiving SD cards to assist in MyTouch 4G and G2 Gingerbread updates

According to this screenshot, T-Mobile retail locations will be receiving SD cards pre-loaded with the files to update the MyTouch 4G and T-Mobile G2 to Gingerbread, as well as updating the MyTouch 3G Slide to the latest Froyo version.  Coming August 1, techs in the stores will be able to assist customers who have difficulty understanding or completing the OTA update process, which is a great way to help the less tech-inclined folks that still love the freedom and customization that Android offers.

We've already seen that the Gingerbread update for the MyTouch 4G is in the works, and Gingerbread for the G2 has been leaked out as well as accidentally shipped on some warranty devices, but it looks like things are a go for an OTA roll out, and not a moment too soon.

  • Great idea for those awaiting the Gingerbread upgrade that haven't received it over the air.
  • Yah, but two steps and then some driving distance back for OTA. Why not put in a check for updated version in Settings/About? Motorola has it.
  • Why can't Tmobile just let us download the updates ourselves?
  • I know! Upload it to DropBox or something and give us a link. Why depreciate OTA? All that "4G" bandwidth adn they make us drive to their stores.
  • While i can’t confirm the installation of Gingerbread on the new devices i’ve heard from multiple sources that inventory is being replenished early this week. Things are looking very very good that we could see a total re-launch of the device this week as T-Mobile and LG prepare to alert customers on how to update their device and fix a lot of those nagging problems that have plagued the phone and caused this whole brouhaha.
  • To manually check for an update... Dial *#*#checkin#*#*
  • is this a joke?
  • I jus say tha new post stating that gingerbread is rollin out for tha G2x, is the G2 from HTC still gonna get gingerbread?
  • what would be really cool is if the updates on the card would already come with root!
