    Like I said in the phandroid news thread: "Never thought I'd see the day. It'll be interesting to see how well this performs compared to other custom 2.2 ROMs for the MT3G. With that said, I won't be updating until a rooted version is available."

    I haven't been impressed with the 2.2 ROMs I've tried so far. The 2.1 ROM I'm using now (Super E with Zeem launcher) runs a lot better that the few 2.2 ROMs I've tried. But hopefully ROM devs will be able to use this official 2.2 ROM to make their custom ROMs better.

    Also, I noticed that they didn't mention Swype in the change log. I was hoping that they would include that. Oh well.

    lol, me too. I rooted and unrooted a long time ago and went back to stock but installed CM6 a week ago, then nandroided back to OEM + root a few days ago. This morning I nandroided back to CM6 and now I see this.

    Borrow a friend's SIM card for a day or two.

    I read in one of the articles that the mytouch3g with the 3.5mm headphones jack won't be included in this update. Hope that's not true....

    sounds like it is true. they probably need more time to code and test for the differences in RAM.

    It IS true.

    It's a different board. The MT3G 1.2 is the 32A board with 2.22 radio. The original MT3G is the 32B board.

    In English that means there's a hardware difference beyond a hole in the top.
     
  11. wooooow, i know alot of 1.2 owners are going to be pissed!

    Unless T-mo finds a way to make froyo run quicker than Donut on the mt3g, I'd rather stick with Donut.

    They won't be far behind, plus it will run WAY better on their phones than ours when they finally do get it. The extra ram is key.

    I was hoping to hear some reviews first since I'm already rooted with CM6. I might go back to stock this weekend to try out the official update though.

    I would assume so. Just a month ago I went back to Cupcake and the Donut update came through OTA in about a day.

    Talked to T-Mobile about my phone. The referred me to HTC. HTC said that all the original mytouch phones should be getting the OTA update, regardless of carrier, just as long as there is either wifi or data plan.

    On a side note, T-Mobile said that 2.2 should be rolled out for all eligible android phone by the end of the month.

    Did you restore any data with mybackup or titanium backup? I did and it prevented the 1.6 update from downloading. I had to do a factory reset and wait until 1.6 downloaded and installed before using mybackup to restore anything.

    Do a factory reset on your phone and don't install anything that isn't from the market until you get your ota update. Leave your phone on and on 3g, not wifi, overnight too.
