Ok so we know its ment 2b this month. Has anyone got it yet?
Not yet, no. There's still more than 3 weeks left of June so don't hold your breath.
The official European rom has been release in Taiwan in the last couple of days so its out now its up to T-mobile to release it, HTC have done their job to some extent, though they haven't put the up date for the sim-free hero on their website yet.
my phone received its OTA update for youtube, etc today. Is this the preparation update before 2.1?
Got my first OTA update today as well, can't wait for the main one!
To get the update, set the calendar to July, minutes later the update appears!
I just happened to try it earlier and minutes later the update box come up, i can confirm someone tried it after me and it worked.
Let me know please
Are you talking about the first update or the main 2.1 update?
First update. Main 2.1 update will be one to two weeks but this first one is a pre-requisite.
Yep, the 'july' thing works... downloaded... installing...
It was the pre-update, no problems at all
Does this update wipe ur phone of data ?
No - unless it fails then to get the update you'll need to re-flash your phone.
SO will we see 2.1 this month?
Various websites quoted the pre update June to get the pre 2.1 and they were right, do you think the 2.1 will be ready for the G2 soon as the hero update?
I changed my T-mobile G2 Touch (UK) to July 1st and nothing happened, so after about 20 mins I changed it back again.
I don't have a problem waiting for the update, as I've only had my phone for 2-3 months anyway, but just curious as to the reasons why it didn't work...
Are you with T-Mobile in the UK or someone else? I just tried the July 1st data change trick again this afternoon out of curiousity and it still doesn't trigger anything, which suggests that T-Mobile in the UK aren't going to be doing the update in the next week or so?
T-Mobile have just announced this on the T-Mobile Forum:
"Recently we released a minor maintenance update for the G2 Touch and we have noticed that a small number of customers were experiencing issues when installing this. After investigating this we have decided to temporarily remove the update. As soon as our investigations are complete we will let you know when the maintenance update will become available. "
Ah, that's probably it. Interesting that they don't elaborate though. Has anyone had any problems with the first part of the update?
I suspect they were probably just not happy that users had figured out a way of triggering it early, and have removed it until the appropriate time.
There does seem to have been a lot of people who get a red triangle after they installed this first update so I think it is probably legit. I tried the forward date thing, and seems a lot of other people did as well, without any luck.
it worked fine for me.
I just want a 2.1 experience to warm me up for a Desire upgrade in early August
