I just got a text message about this update (with a link to the t-mobile community forums). I thought it was funny how they made sure to say "this is not the 2.2 Froyo update".

You guys already got the update to download? does it come via text? Question, is this a firmware update? Everytime you do a system factory rest, do you need to reinstall this?

thanks

Well I'm glad for this update. The reason that I even installed adw, is because i didn't have any use for the faves gallery because it didn't work right and sync with facebook.

I tried downloading the facebook app, but that ended up taking 12 mb of space on my phone, thats a no no with out froyo.

It is called friend stream.

It is a widget. Just longpress on a completely empty screen, go to widgets, find friendstream, and place widget option 1 of 2 onto the screen. TADA!

I just got the update at 6:00 am in southern Illinois. First thing I noticed was the TMo sync ran and stopped!!! It's about time, I'll play a bit before I go to bed ( I work nights) and see if theres any difference.

What worries me is that it said anytime from the 4th-through the 19th.

I've never gotton an OTA update before..will it ask me to install it? or will it just install it?

It will say a firmware upgrade is available and you choose to install or postpone. This is the first time I've gotten one myself, except for the small security fixes when I had the G1.

No, there isn't on the Slide. If you are impatient, you can go to xda developers site and download the update, they have it there.

myTouch 3G Slide MR Update. [ Edited ]
Options
07-30-2010 04:58 PM - last edited on 08-02-2010 02:16 PM by Steven

Beginning August 4, T-Mobile will send an over-the-air (OTA) update to myTouch 3G Slide customers, which will provide a number of benefits, including increased battery performance and enhancements to software features such as Faves Gallery and Genius Button. This is not an update to the Android operating system (i.e. This is not Froyo/Android version 2.2).

The update will be sent to customers beginning August 4 and we anticipate all customers will receive it by August 19. Customers will be notified of the OTA via a free SMS text message from T-Mobile.

The timeline for receiving the OTA cannot be expedited. T-Mobile will be unable to manually push the software to customers who ask to receive it before August 19.

Improvements included with this update are as follows:

1. Battery Life:

Updates to the T-Mobile online contact backup connection, which will improve battery life.
2. Wi-Fi:

Ability to send MMS messages when connected to Wi-Fi.
3. Genius Button improvements:
Ability to turn GPS on and off using your voice, such as “Turn GPS on.”
Will announce Caller ID for incoming voice calls and allow you to “Answer” or “Ignore” using your voice.
Will announce incoming text messages and allow you to “reply” with dictation.
4. Faves Gallery improvements:

The Faves icon will be displayed beside notifications that appear while the device is locked to indicate that the communication is coming from one of your Faves.
Fave photo display speed will be enhanced.
General stability will be improved, including more seamless scrolling and consistent display of photos.
