    If you’ve got a T-Mobile G1 you can now update to the latest software patch… but we have no clue what it actually does. Android Forums member chrislimon brought this to our attention and provided his own summary of how it went down:Tonight when I got home and turned on Wi-Fi my phone started going [...]

    I have a feeling that we will be getting a lot of these little updates as they have reports of problems from end-users.

    Anyone know where I could snag the update via wifi or somehow? I'm outside of Tmobiles coverage for the next few weeks and while RC19 isn't that bad a little more battery life would be nice

    It is sure nice to see that they have, not only one update but two. So some folks have been upgraded to 28, then to 29 and the rest of us are sitting with 19. I am so impressed with this update process that I could just choke.

    What are the odds of my seeing it yet this year?

    I'm sure we'll see a lot of updates coming. Maybe a couple more this year.

    Yeah this slow rollout of updates is kind of lame. With a device like this there will be pretty regular updates to it. I'm worried that by the time I get the first update the next one will be out... :(

    I also called Tmobile and they said they are doing it in batches for this first update. Good to hear the battery life is better though.

    Houston here and got mine this morning on way to work. It only took about 3-4 mins to download. I can say that it DEFINITELY improved my battery life. I was charging my phone 2-3 times a day. Today i've charged it once and has lasted most of the work day **1st post** yeah.
