MyTouch 3G (T-Mobile HTC Magic) upgraded now to Android 2.2.1 FRG83D firmware
Finally it is alive, alive. Gone from Android 1.5 to 1.6 and now Android 2.2.1. My very first Android phone now has the latest official Android update.
The update hit with two phases, apparently one for Android 2.2, and then 2.2.1.
ROM is FRG83D, which is similar to the one on my Nexus One without the D. But I heard FRG83D are hitting the Nexus One too.
The fact there is no difference in the firmware label between this and the one on the Nexus One suggests me this is a generic OS.
It doesn't make the phone zippy though, but after months of using 1 Ghz smartphones, my sense of normal has been retuned to a new standard.
With the meager hardware, no Flash and living wallpaper either.
I don't use the phone anymore except in trips, so the update is more for academic and personal satisfaction.
