    Will the Mytouch get the official 2.1 update? if so, when? Or would it be better for me to root my phone and get it that way. How tuff if it for a guy who has never rooted before?


    Thanks,
    Robert

    The reports are out there which say MT3G should have gotten 2.1 already but I am going to hold my breath on that.

    The problem with the current 2.1 roms out there is that none is perfect and all lag a lot on MT3G. MT3G does not have the hardware capabilities to run 2.1 and that is where all these problems come from.

    I doubt if there is an original release of 2.1, it would have all the feature of a nexus one.

    Rooting is irrespective of the type of rom you will loading on your phone. It is very simple if you follow the steps as it is.

    Seeing as the inferior-spec'd cliq is going to get it, there's no reason why we shouldn't either..... at least those of us who have 1.2.

    There's already been lots of sources saying that the newer mytouch is going to receive it. Original mytouch owners already have a huge selection of roms to choose from anyway.

    If you root and then unroot, can T-Mobile tell that the phone was previously rooted if you send it in for any reason

    I sold mine for 150 bucks :p. It wasnt a bad phone and if the keyboard was better I would have kept it, but with as much texting as i do, I just couldnt stand it.... what works for one, may not work for another. My wife still has hers, but shes going to sell it as soon as the new hack comes out for the iphone :)

    I think it's hilarious that this thread if from april and we still have nothing. T-Mobile is always a step behind.
