In a nutshell, this update should bring improved battery life, some UI improvements, and a better keyboard. There really isn't a whole lot of other information available, but we'll definitely be keeping an eye on the situation and let you know as soon as more info drops.

    I had to read the article a few times to make sure this wasn't for the G2X :)

    Woohoo!

    So yeah I thought Cyan7 dropped a while ago. OOOOHH, the Tmobile update. Who really waits for this from Tmobile. Root and break the chains people. Already running Sense 3.0 preparing for when the Sensation drops. F--- The Carriers.

    Nice, I've been on CM7 for a few months now but I still love the stock G2 and can't wait for this OTA update.

  • Devin

    WOOOOOOHOOOOO!!!! ABD!!! (ABOUT DAMN TIME). I don't really feel like rooting my phone so I've been waiting for the Official OTA. Thanks, T-Mo!!!

  • Scott

    Hmm, will this update cause any issues with already rooted phones?

  • Oswaldo

    that's a good news to all G2 users including me, besides is a rumor, i'm waiting for the update.

    I got my G2 in Jan, and am completely new to custom ROMs on Android. I am familiar with custom mods on the old PalmOS, but that was years ago.
    Cyanogen seems to be a well-supported and updated ROM; but is it possible to add/delete apps from it as well?
    I am very happy with the stock Android UI on the G2; I tried the Sense UI on someone's phone and didn't care for it. So could I remove bits if I wanted to from a custom ROM?
    -thank you for all the good info I am learning here!

    • Scott

      Yup, once you fire up a custom rom, you can find a few free apps that can help you remove or freeze those apps you don't like
