    I wonder if this means there is a chance that my Sprint HTC Hero will get Android 2.2 as well. They both run virtually the same hardware in regards to CPU speed and RAM capacity.

    This is indeed great news. Congratulations to you T-Mobile HTC myTouch 3G handset users.

    indeed we are my friend, indeed we are. you beat me to posting to the first thread! and about the hero, i really dont see why not considering the hero and the mytouch are the same phone internally, except the 1.2 version has a little more RAM. now i am just curious to see if we get the expresso UI. i dont see why we wouldnt, considering the mytouch slide already has it and is getting 2.2 as well. i just know that the sense would just come with the 2.2.

    Does 2.2 have better media syncing abilites? I'm really getting fed up with having to use Songbird and having some songs not transfer correctly within the playlist (like the artist data not showing up)

    Again there is no release date. For all we know it could be October until we see something.

    Thats because you love us merf. Deep down your a MT3G v1.0 guy at heart. You really want to come back to the original side. LOL


    BTW not going to hold my breath on that update. I have been hearing about it since I got the phone when it first came out and im referring to the Original (non 3.5 jack). Ill keep the wifes phone handy and see :p

    Question: I have rooted my MT3G and I'm running ROM HTCClay Superfast v1.3.3, will I be able to up-grade to 2.2 or do I have to return the phone to some other config?

    Thank You

    Just curious, will we get a notification when it's released or are we going to have to go on an epic search to find it?

    LMAO, yea i remeber hearing about a 2.0 update on Jan 3rd. lmao never happened. I took that as a sign

    If Im not mistaken you have to re flash the original rom. Could be wrong

    You will get notified of an update on your phone. with the update symbol up at the top of your home screen

    Since your phone is rooted you will not get the automatic update from Tmobile for 2.2, however when that time comes there will be developers that create 2.2 roms for the Mytouch and then you can flash that to your phone.

    WOW, looks like we're never gonna get updated. T-Mobile takes too long. Time to root!

    But... I've heard the rumor since November last year... I finally got sick of the same rumor and rooted last month.
    I really don't know if 2.1 or 2.2 will run any faster than 1.6 stock rom. Having said that, I am thinking about going back to 1.6

    2.1 definitely runs faster and better on my phone than 1.6.

    And regarding 2.2, I am waiting for the 2.2 mod, not the official update (which will probably never come anyway)

    I received the myTouch magazine in the mail yesterday that had the exact page shown in the OP article.

    The problem is that we don't have an ETA.

    2.2 will have JIT complier enabled so it will definitely run faster than 1.6 .... much faster.

    What makes you think having the JIT compiler would make MT3G run faster??? Having to load the code and compile while running the application would make the system run SLOWER.

    I just don't see how you got the idea of "it will definitely run faster than 1.6"???
