When will HTC be releasing the update to Android 2.1 for the MyTouch 3G. I'm a little annoyed that Motorola has already released updates for three of their android phones and we still haven't gotten one from HTC. I saw HTC as the leader in Android devices but now I'm questioning whether I made the right choice in picking a phone with stock Android and yet we still have no update. As customers we deserve at least an honest update from HTC.
Motoorola may have released updates for 3 phones but there are still plenty that don't have it like the CLIQ and CLIO XT which just came out. Both are still running on 1.5 for pete's sake and both are slated for upgrade sometime this Qtr. I would also like to know if there is any more current info on the MT3G upgrade as I have one of those as well.
Android 2.1 was just announced, see this.
Android 2.1 was announced as a rumor for the mt3g for the 2nd qtr of this year. HTC needs to step up, we've supported them by buying their phones, then need to as a minimum either quash the rumor as false or give us a better update time frame.
I should have said Android 2.1 was just announced for the Cliq/CliqXT.
@artcarney Phandroid had that information a few days before Tmonews but yes that's the problem it seems that HTC is just ignoring us and not proving us any support on the MyTouch 3G which was such a heavily marketed phone in the US that it is a real disappointment from a customer service standpoint.
At the very least they could issue a press release saying when to expect the rollout.
I agree totally with bostonsig.......the mt3g was supposed to be the "Cat's Meow" but I find differently. I've had mine less than a month and wish now I had stuck with Blackberry. They either get the problems fixed or T-Mobile is history for me.
i honestly dont understand why they just dont say yes there is a update or no there isnt a update rolling to either of these phones. what was the sense of me buying the mytouch 3g if its going to pose as a G1. i totally feel i spent my money on the wrong phone now im scared to buy a new android device.
I always thought that it was the wireless providers job to update the Android phone's OS.
found this for those interested looks like 2.1 is still on track if the source is right
Im as frustrated as a lot of the people hear seem to be - I was told by the T-Mobile 'Vendor', by T-Mobile 'Themselves' AND HTC that, back in Nov '09 when I purchased the MyTouch 3g, that Flash would be available by 2010... which THEN turned into March... Then Late May and NOW Adobe has released Flash 10 BETA - but it will only run on Android 2.? and my phone is still running on the most recent release 1.?
I was ready and willing to by an iPhone but was 'SOLD' on how great, new, advanced and PREPARED to be awesome and beyond anything else available - But now Im starting to think that while Android MIGHT be that cool - The various companies are selectively sharing that new, out of this world, advances in technology
Ill give it to Sept - THEN I get a new phone 'made' and service 'provided' by anyone else

345030031734139 s/n Driod 2 application upgrade where is the update this was the first of the my touch and the droid app is still not available when will it be as you can see on the forum people are about to give up on htc.
Ok. I got the froyo update and my myTouch is now running the Android 2.2.1 and kernel 220.127.116.11. All of which Adobe says is what is needed to run the flash player (you know, the one that runs about 90% of the internet???) but I still can't download flash. Any ideas why? Getting way frustrated with T-Mobile and I'm hoping that HTC is a little more customer service oriented.
Well from what I hear it has something 2 do with the JIT compiler. Which I still dont believe was worked into our MT3G, firmware 2.2.1 updates. The simplest solution I've found is just to use the Skyfire web browser if u need 2 access Flash.
Almost forgot to tell you, but the .apk for Flash is available (just not over anddroid market). Try finding it via the web
