I assume that when we do receive GB, that it will wipe off my side loading that AT&T just pushed to me yesterday? or is that only if I manually update to GB from the website?

Thnx!

I heard a rumor that the GB update will have the unknown sources enabled on it so those that never got that update should get it with this update. So I guess no matter what after the update everyone should have sideloading enabled.

But again that could just be that, a rumor. So I'll sit and wait and see what happens for others. It's what I did for the froyo update they pushed for the captivate back in February.

Once we have Gb and if a time comes that we need to reset our phone back to factory outta the box condition... then how do we get gb again? We have to call/chat to request it be repushed again or ... ?

Sorry for all the questions, Im a newbie and just trying to learn the ropes.

Maybe a little something but it's sure not helping me with an os update, check in=nothing and nothing on the htc site for me either. Also not seeing any activity from phone on my router.

The one guy that it did work for, 1st posted about, wasn't bs'ing though, on ATT forums someone else saw it on the htc site as well and gave some copypasta from that page. I guess htc took it down for some reason.

But, they still left on the tech specs that the current version is 2.3.3. I'm assuming this means the update is coming quite soon.

xda has a leaked manual installer as of 7/30, presumably the same as what was there for a bit tonight, it's a windows exe, I guess it would do it over the usb cable.

Default htc page with download

I had saved the HTC site with the download. Below are the contents. (maybe the download will work??) I downloaded the file but chose not to update yet. Hope it comes over WIFI soon.

Default manual update time

You're welcome.

How long did the manual update take?

I will do mine this weekend if it doesn't come through. Might do it anyway just to get a cleaner install.

it was REALLY quick for me.
less than a half hour (results may vary) and i had gingerbread on my phone

its actually taking longer for me to get everything back onto the phone and setting it back up. (the update pretty much factory resets your phone.)

I've prepped my phone and will do the update first thing in the morning after doing a last minute backup.

BTW, there is a new version of HTC Sync (HTC Sync v 3.0.5557 | 08.04.2011 Download (144 MB)) on their website. Maybe it's necessary/preferred/enhanced for syncing with Gingerbread ?!

Curious what the HTC specific features are.

i also seen the HTC sync update. so maybe it is preparation for GB.

so far the changes i have seen are:
-quick settings in the notification bar
-download manager app
-quicker way to manage running apps
-revamped app drawer w/ frequently used apps section & downloaded apps section

i'm pretty sure there are UI enhancements but i haven't noticed those yet...
i'll try to look for more

Worked for me, thanks!

I did a complete wipe of my phone last night still hoping for an ota since I couldn't get it from the htc page like some of you all did. no ota this morning either, then I saw you had it posted here.

After my wipe last night I didn't setup my google account so it was like froyo straight from the ATT store no apps contacts or anything.

After installing gingerbread today and signing in to google I was kind of amazed at how 90% of my android settings I wanted to change and documented a few days ago, were already done for me by the google backup stuff!

Didn't see anyone else reply to this, but yes the rumor is true. The GB update does come with "unknown sources" enabled. I downloaded the Amazon App store and have been enjoying my newly found freedom.....

I data wiped my stock froyo last night and after that was left without an unknown sources option (I had it before) was weird. It never came back until this morning when I did the gb update.

Phew, I was so worried when I did the manual update a few days ago before it was released. I just compared the file you have and the one I downloaded when it was leaked and it is in fact the exact same thing. Praise da LAWD! lol


GB update is amazing, now I love my phone even more.

I noticed this as well. If you allow google to backup your settings to the cloud, it will put just about everything back on there after you wipe. Really the only thing I needed to reconfigure was my widgets and bluetooth pairings. It did take a couple hours after I wiped to have everything magically show up though.

I had to wipe my phone last night as well (to rid my new phone of the kiddos doings... he put HIS gmail/google account... it was the only way to rid the phone of it... ugh!) and like you, I lost my 'unknown sources'. I'm not worried though as I'm a brand spanking new user and hadn't even attempted to download from amazon or anywhere else for that matter, as yet. So I'll either do another quick chat with ATT to get it back (hope the chat is as smooth and fast as the other day!) or I'll patiently wait for GB. lol

Maybe thats why they pulled it... justttt kidding... lol :-)

I had to chat with them to get them to re push my side loading.... this time did NOT go as smoothly as the first time (a couple days ago)! They kept transferring me around, the ONLY thing they all could agree on is that GB is delayed as per an email they received. One of the reps said she thought an email also went out to customers but she wasn't positive about that. But she said the update was pulled almost immediatly after it was released.

Oh well, I have my side loading back... I'll be patient for the unimpressive GB! LOL

I've still got sideloading. Notification pull down bar menu is a little different, apps menu scrolls by page now instead of continuous, there is a downloads app now and the menu icon changed. So far , that's all I can tell.

They did the same thing with the froyo update for the aria. Not a big deal.
Google and Sync restored everything quickly after GB install. Took less than 10 min start to finish.

Wouldn't surprise me if they pulled it because they forgot to include an IMPORTANT piece of bloatware! lol

Apparently sideloading is part of the GB update. I lost my side loading because I had to do a reset on my phone in order to get my teenagers google/gmail account off of it. He was playing/helping me set things up the other night after I got my new phone, he figured on the long drive home he'd have it all ready for me by the time we reached home. Yup, it was ready alright, ready with all HIS info! ahaha! When I tried to delete it, the device told me I could only do that by resetting the device. To me, that is so dumb. I should be able to delete whatever I want... well, thats how I see it, in my own little world. LOL

I just tried gps test and gps status inside a big office building with little tiny windows. I'm showing some signal from 4-6 satellites but it didn't lock the few minutes free I had to stand by a window.

I don't know if it would normally get a lock by a window here or not I've never tried. I know before gb update it would get a decent lock in the middle of my house.

I'll try outside in a couple hours.

edit: I just got an 80-foot accuracy lock by the window with gps test.

Shorepatrol maybe new agps data would help? gps status does gps assistance data downloading automatically gps test does not afaik, its in there to manually do though: menu-settings-clear agps then refresh agps.

I used tobyornottoby's file to update my phone. Pretty smooth update process. It is just like a factory reset. For some reason android market didn't update all my apps. Other than that inconvenience, seems pretty good. I thought I had heard that swype was coming with Gingerbread?

Just tried mine outside and got a 6-foot accuracy lock in gps test. I think that's the best I've ever seen by far, I think it was always 15-20' before for me.


Only problem I'm having is my launcher pro nexus-like 3d app drawer is way way laggy in scrolling, it never was before. But I don't think it was laggy earlier today before I hid all the ATT apps from the drawer, maybe hiding makes it lag, didn't on froyo, maybe a reboot.

edit: nope, still laggy scrolling after a reboot with nothing hid.
