Default OTA Gingerbread update *Download link and instructions*

This is for those who have not gotten the over-the-air Gingerbread update for their MyTouch 4G.

First, download the file named PD15IMG.zip from this site and place it on the root of your SD card (meaning not in any folders, just dropped onto the SD card)

Then, turn your phone off. Do a battery pull, or turn off "fast boot."

Hold down the power button while holding down the "volume down" button.

This will boot into your bootloader, where you can select "Apply Update.zip"

Follow on-screen instructions, and enjoy the official Gingerbread on your MyTouch 4G.

DISCLAIMER: Even upon successful install, you WILL lose your settings, apps, and possibly contacts (depending on how you have them stored). I am not responsible for your device if this does not work for you. Also, neither is the original file host. This is not my file, or website. I have had no contact with the original host. I took a shot in the dark, said "screw it" and tried the update. I did successfully update using this file.

This file will update your MyTouch 4G (HTC Glacier) to:
Android Version: 2.3.4
HTC Sense Version: 2.1
Software Number: 2.19.531.1

Kernel Version: 2.6.35.10-g225de41
htc-kernel@and18-2 #1

Baseband Version: 12.58.60.25U_26.11.04.03_M

Build Number: 2.19.531.1 CL95282 release-keys

Either. If you do it from your phone, you'll need a file manager to move the file onto the root of your SD card. That's the method I used.

Plugging it into your computer is probably easier though.

This worked great and didn't take much time at all. Thanks a lot for the link. Everything seems to be running smoothly except I can't send picture messages. I seem to recall having this problem when I first got the phone but I don't remember what the fix was. Any suggestions?

it could be the tmobile network or something because last night (when i was on 2.2.1) i sent a slideshow of about 5 pics to a friend whom i usually send pics too and they never frickin went, even today they still never left my phone. usually i dont have a problem. so it cant be the version of the android, it's frickin tmobile being a butthole. lol

ANYWAY, i just finally downloaded the file to my phone, used ASTRO FILE to find the file, moved it to /sdcard (the file was on the card but in "download" for those looking for it). i moved it to /sdcard as i just said, then followed the instructions and everything is running fine. it took awhile to load back up after it updated and tells you to reboot, so be patient.

i remember people saying that "image file not found" messages. it'll say this but read every line. the last one tells you it found it and is updating, so look close before you cuss it out and get paranoid and shiet. lol do what you're told and it does indeed work.

im now running android 2.3.4. THANK YOU A LOT (OP) !!

The things that are on your SD card (e.g. music, photos, videos, ebooks, etc.) are not affected by the update. Contacts should resynch from Google or T-Mobile. The only things I lost when I had the update done in a T-Mobile store were apps I had installed. I had a list of those, so reinstalling them was easy. Glad your update went well.

There should be a quick settings tab in the notification shade now too, along with improved battery life and more responsive touch screen.

Confused

I got the link from another site and the instructions were not too clear. Now I am afraid to move on. I think I might have named the file wrong, I added .zip to the end of the file name. I turn on the phone while holding vol down. Now I have a white screen with options of fastboot, recovery, factory reset, simlock, image crc. Can someone help because I now cant see my phone on computer to fix file name.

since updating, and it's been about a week now, i do definitely notice a huge improvement on the battery life. to the poster asking about renaming files and whatnot - FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. if you follow them, you do NOT need to rename any files.

I haven't had a single issue with mine, so I can't help you with the camera problem. Haven't experienced it.

The only bug I've found in this one so far, is an MMS problem. I can't download MMS over Wifi. I have to disconnect from Wifi to receive an MMS message. It's bullshit. haha

worked for me, thanks for posting this!

question: i used titanium/visionary/etc to temproot my phone before this OS upgrade. i understand there's no way to temproot without going through a downgrading process, and that's fine. the only thing is.. i made some app backups with titanium. does this mean i can't restore all my app data unless i wait for a root solution?

Default cannot find image

Hopefully this will save someone a lot of time. If you get a message saying that there is no image or a bad image on the bootloader, you need to format your SD card to FAT32 and redownload the file. To format, right click on the drive under My Computer.

I can get to bootloader, but it doesn't say Apply Update anywhere. I added the file straight to my SD card, and it's not working.

My options are:
Fastboot
Recovery
Factory Reset
Simlock
Image CRC

This IS the Dec. 20th update.

I believe T-Mobile released this update on the sd cards first, then started the OTA push in December.


If you google the dec 20 update, the software versions are identicle!

Absolutely not! This is 100% factory over the air update, but downloadable to sd card in case you never recieved the update (like me)

This update came from the sd cards that T-Mobile was updating phones with.

This is not a custom rom, does not require root, and has as much risk of bricking your device as a sheep does going bald (none)

If you brick your device using this method, then you aren't using this method.

For anyone wondering if this is the December 20th update:

It IS. T-Mobile released it to a limited number via OTA and on corporate SD cards back in October. That's when I uploaded it. T-Mobile started the second part of the rollout on December 20th.

THIS IS THE NEWEST UPDATE. THIS UPDATE IS AN OFFICIAL T-MOBILE RELEASE.

If you had good results, go ahead and click the "Thanks" button if you truely appreciate it!

Razi, looks like you're rooted buddy!

Genome, the link is in the first paragraph on the site, it's the first link in yellow that says "in-store Gingerbread update"

No im not rooted , I entered Su command in terminal emulator, it denied. Btw if I install update over s-off ,will it make trouble.? And why it does not check automatically for pd5img.zip in bootloader unlike others do ? I think I have to use recovery instead of bootloader. Is this Ok? And what about this https://t-mobile.jive-mobile.com:443/#jive-document?content=%2Fapi%2Fcore%2Fv1%2Fdocuments%2F 1818 it says they have paused the update, and you cannot download the update manually. żż?Confusing???

When I click that link, it takes me to a page that says Mytouch 4G update fail, then on that page, I click a link in the first paragraph that says "in store upgrade option", it takes me to the tmobile page that says it stopped the update.

Well your radio security is off. So you should be able to flash superuser.zip and have root access.

Check out xda developers for more info

Hmm, site miderator must have taken it down. Try messaging some of the other members who successfully downloaded it!

The T-Mobile store bricked a few devices using the sd card, but I can't imagine that it was the update files fault. Either the employee didnt know what they were doing, or the sd card had some bad files.

Regardless, many phones were fine after using the file, and if you want the official gingerbread update, I highly reccommend it. But whatever you do is up to you.

It is the T-Mobile update, so yes, you would be locked into T-Mobile.
