Fyi 2 at the beginning =2.2, 1 at the beginning =2.1
Yes that is what I meant... but I figured it all out I for some reason had to format my sd card then when in recovery I had to wipe my partition prior to flashing a ROM.

In that case, flash cm7 rc1 and get your gingerbread on.

I think i will wait until they get the kinks out. My girlfriend uses wifi too much since she is on the $10 data plan. Plus she likes the espresso widgets and launcher pro is too buggy.

Default firmware help?

how do i get the firmware 2.2.1 that the mytouch 4g uses onto my mytouch 3g slide which runs 2.1 update 1. is there an update that t-mobile has sent out? i am trying to view movies on my slide and it will not open, i put the same movie on the 4g which the wife owns and it works perfect.

I don't think it works that way... The software has to be built for the phone specifically. You could try rooting and try the 'stock' 2.2 'update' that was 'leaked'.
This link could help maybe - it has some of the t-mobile bloatware removed too.

Or this link.

That's the one I use

Just unzip it and remove the bloatware you don't want and rezip it

Im still waiting too...I was thinking though; I also own an original mt3g mine is only a tad slower and works fine on 2.2, but that forum is full of disgruntled owners who say their phones are nearly unusable. What if slide owners start getting horrible performance out of thier phones too?

So, I called t-mobile cs and they said they can't do anything about the dust under the screen. Really!? Lame. Do I have to wait for it to get really bad, then they will do something about it?

Yeah but it's not their newest "tmo" phone...the mytouch 4g is and we (4g owners) have already gotten an android os update (2.2 - 2.2.1) not just a stupid tmo MR update. I have little doubt it'll also get up to gingerbread, but I don't really care about 2.3.x. It brings nothing to the table but a fugly UI and NFC compatibility and I will never use that.

The Slide is made by HTC not T-mobile....

Although HTC did not brand the phone anywhere like they did with the 4G (it says HTC on the battery cover)

Cause it's older and it's been around longer, so there was more time to develop it..

We won't be AT&T for another 6-12 months at which time I plan on jumping to Sprint and hope Verizon buys them out and I can keep my $80 unlimited everything.

Congrats... My Slide is staying on 2.2.1 until someone rips friendstream, the music player, and all of the sense widgets from the espresso rom.

So I call T-Mobile for one things.. then ask them about the 2.2 Update.. As always they are super nice on the phone.. They girl puts me on hold for a while and tell me. That the updates started going out already.. and I should have mine with in the next few weeks...

I wanted to say something.. it might have made her cry but she was so damn nice on the phone...

I hate you t-mobile.. why don't they just put this update on their site so we can just pull it..

I haven't seen or heard anything official from T-Mobile saying they are rolling out the update...
I went into a T-Mobile store the other day and the guy there was like - yeah the only way you are going to get 2.2 on that phone is to root it... (maybe he meant the only way right now, but the way he said it sounded like he meant the only way ever)

I would say it will be released eventually.

The CR MOD is a leaked version of the update and runs flawlessly with the only issue being memory.

Anyone installed it yet? I got a few questions.

Do live wallpapers work?
How much Bloatware is on it?
Are wifi calling and hotspot working?
Is there 2 options for the messaging widget?

It is the same as cr_mod. Live walls are supported but none are included.

Stock 2.2 rooted won't work?

I don't know why but when I root I can only get in CMR once... after that it will not open again. I have to wipe my memory card, unroot, wipe memory card, and reroot to flash a different ROM.

Does HTC sync even work on windows 7 64-bit?

No that wont work. Here is your key to the kingdom:
download this>> ESPRIMG.zip

-place it on the root of your sd card
-power down the phone
-reboot holding Volume Down + Power
-ESPRIMG.zip will now get verified once it does press Volume Up to confirm the flash
-let it do its thing then press Volume Up for reboot
-wait a little more

You now have the original stock Slide ROM. From here just follow HTC's instructions.

Its ok of you are rooted because you won't be after you follow those instructions I posted. Not sure about windows 7 but I think you'd be ok. Mac users are SOL though.

Yeah it all worked fine.

I must say this ROM is pretty zippy.

Oh and I noticed in the software information under kernal version it has the date december 8th 2010. Is this the date it was released to T-mobile? Meaning that they held it from us for 4 months..... and technically still are.
