    Thanks to the great people over at XDA we have the 2.3 update early. Flash this signed tmobile pc10img.zip (rename the file PC10IMG.zip after download). it is the 2.3 update. Put the pc10img.zip on the root of your sdcard, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A FULL BATTERY BEFORE DOING THIS if your phone shuts down in the middle you will own a fully bricked G2. boot your phone by pressing vol. Down and pwr at the same time, it will ask of you want to apply the update, press yes. Let it do its thing and follow what it says.

    If you are rooted DO NOT USE THIS it WILL UNROOT your device and you will go S-on.

    Also, root has not been found for this yet, so if you want to root don't update.
    Netflix may not work at this time with this update

    EDIT:

    Took down the links till I can find the new build. It will be 2.3.4.


    Edit#2

    Its here! The OTA to 2.3.4! If you installed the older 2.3.3 you have to wait for the OTA to be pushed or downgrade.

    Guide

    [GUIDE] T-Mobile G2 2.3.4 official OTA manual update - xda-developers

    Huge thanks to XDA once again.

    Edit

    Here is the pc10img.zip to update your leaked 2.3.3 enjoy

    This did not work for me, but I'm not sure I used the correct steps on my G2 (not rooted!).

    What I did was;

    - downloaded the file
    - renamed the file to PC10IMG.zip
    - copied the file on the root of the SD card
    - Reboot with volume down + touchpad + Power button

    Nothing happened, the phone just boots up as normal.

    Thank you!

    Can I download the zip file onto my phone and do all the steps from the phone or do I need to go through the computer?

    Yeah you can rename it and move it using Astro. Just use wifi to download it and double check the file size and the md5 checksum before flashing.

    To ensure you have a good download. If you try to flash a bad/corrupted download it could mean brick.

    Make sure you rename it PC10IMG.zip and make sure its just on the sdcard not in any folders. you bootloader will scan the sdcard for that file name and ask you to " press vol up to apply the update."

    Hmmm I must be an idiot, I can see PC10IMG.zip at the bottom of the list when I go into androzip, I reboot with volume + down, takes me to the bootloader, I hit power on hboot, it scans but then goes back to bootloader after that. Am I missing a step?

    The only thing I could see is don't hit power on hboot, the bootloader should do the scan.

    No, the bootloader should scan the sd for the pc10img. and ask you to press vol up to update down to decline. So the file isn't named correctly or isn't on the root of your sdcard.

    Hipster7929@gmail.com if it would be easier to contact me, I know this shouldn't be so hard. Do appreciate you putting up with me though.

    Download astro file manager free from the market. Find the file, I would guess its under the download folder. Long press the file, hit edit, move. Press the file up button, paste it under /mnt/sdcard

    alright so i had finally gotten it to scan the file, even saw a tiny progress bar on the top right of the screen, but for whatever reason it did not ask me if i wanted to apply the zip. i think im giving up.

    Just make sure you delete the old download and double check the sum of the new one.

    Hipster... have you experienced any issues thus far since you ran the update? I have downloaded the file and am considering running the update today.
