The T-Mobile G2X’s Android 2.3 Gingerbread update should be pushing soon, and with it.

  1. when and how will we know the 2.3 version is available. i just bought a G2x and would like to know about the upgrade. thanks

  2. I would appreciate your advice about several questions I have about my LG G2X phone I just bought recently. For starters, I have never owned a smartphone of any sort, Android or otherwise, so this is all new to me. I have been reading all of the info in tech forums that I can to learn about both the inner and outer workings of my phone and how to take full advantage of its capabilities. One recommendation I keep running across is that I “root” my phone in order to improve its clock speed (is that the same as overclocking?). Proponents of rooting one’s phone insist that it is impossible to really utilize the phone’s full potential unless it’s rooted, that it is necessary to do so in order to install certain apps which I might find useful and that I will not be able to install software updates for my programs unless it is rooted. but which will not install unless my phone is rooted. Further, I am told by T-Mobile that my warranty would automatically be voided (both the manufacturer’s and the T-Mobile coverage I pay $6/month for just in case I lose, damage or otherwise have it die on me) which is obviously a concern. I’ve heard a lot of buzz about the Android 2.3 Gingerbread update which is/was supposed to come out this Spring/Summer, but I am not clear on whether that update is available now, if I’ll be automatically notified by T-Mobile that the update is ready for download and what problems it might solve including speed enhancement and a keyboard that is easier for me to use (I press the wrong buttons constantly and it’s frustrating!). Any advice/info you can give me on the subject will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  3. It’s only out on the newest phones unless you hack your current one. T-mobile sux and lags on everything. If you’re lucky you can see it by winter 2011.

  4. If they replace the camera app with stock Android this would be a major fail!! the LG camera app is really great and one of the reason I came back to stock from CM7 big mistake!
