    Is there a link somewhere to trick the MyTouch 4G to start the OTA download of Android 2.3 Gingerbread?

    I am tired of being on the imaginary waiting list and I don't want to root my phone either. I am just curious as I have heard whispers of such a 'trigger' elsewhere on the internet.

    To get the original GB update, go here, and follow the directions step by step. Download the PD15IMG.zip file offered in the embedded link there. This is what I did for 4 MT4G phones, without any problems. Yes, the file is safe, its the official update file from T-Mobile.

    After the upgrade to Gingerbread 2.3.4 and reboot after fresh install, check your system's stability, then do this to get the updated file (You CAN download the new OTA update manually.)

    menu/settings/about phone/software update/check now

    click the "check now" button

    There should be a pop-up window offering you an update.

    Pick which method.

    Follow directions.

    Done. You will now have Version 2.32.531.1
