T-Mobile And HTC Haven't Forgotten myTouch 3G Slide And G2, Minor Updates Available For Both

These updates might not amount to much, but it's always nice to see official updates to older devices. I'm talking really old, like the myTouch 3G Slide and the G2, both released all the way back in 2010. If you're in possession of said devices and are not yet running a custom ROM with something more fresh than Android 2.2 and 2.3.4 respectively (why not?), here's what's coming:

  • Security patch
  • Improved software stability

Descriptive, isn't it?

New Root Method For MyTouch Slide With Latest OTA Support Surfaces

Android user nbetcher, with the help of ChiefzReloaded, has come up with a new method to achieve root for the T-Mobile MyTouch Slide. The process was just finalized and is still rather technical, but Chiefz says an APK is coming soon, with a one-click sure to follow.

Technically, this method grants a specific program root, rather than the whole phone - thus, a full-phone root must follow. Again, these instructions are certainly on the technical side - if you’re not comfortable doing this, an APK and one-click will follow.

Froyo Coming To The MyTouch 3G?

Good news for users of the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G: It seems you will be receiving some Froyo love after all!


Nothing is 100% official at the moment, but the T-Mobile fanatics over at TmoNews have a pretty convincing screenshot that supposedly details the upcoming upgrade for the MyTouch 3G.

In addition to the upgrade to 2.2, T-Mobile is apparently planning on throwing in the modified ‘Faves Gallery’, and ‘Genius Button’ applications as well.

Pick Up The MyTouch Slide For $130 At Walmart

Looking to ditch your Behold II for something a bit more upgradable(hopefully)? Well, it seems Walmart has you covered then.

 2010-05-29 21h46_47

Apparently, tasty Android phones aren’t exempt from Walmart’s infamous roll backs, and they’re now offering the T-Mobile MyTouch Slide for $129.99 with a new 2 year contract – that’s $70 off the price that T-Mobile is offering.

For a mid-range Android handset that’s not a bad price, especially if you’re dying to having a QWERTY keyboard, but, for me at least, the decision becomes a bit more difficult when you consider the EVO 4G is a mere $70 more.

HTC's New Espresso Sense UI In A Detailed Video Review, Expected On T-Mobile myTouch Slide This Summer

Espresso UI

If you haven't heard yet, HTC has been developing a new flavor of its own flavor of another flavor of Android called Espresso.

Espresso is an interface built on top of HTC's flagship Sense UI and is expected to make its first appearance in the wild on the upcoming T-Mobile myTouch Slide. We covered the phone and the UI when both of them leaked online.

Espresso Build Leaked Online

HTC Gives T-Mobile myTouch Slide's Sense UI An Espresso Boost

The T-Mobile MyTouch Slide just can’t get enough of the camera. We’ve already seen it in three color configurations, and now the good gents at TmoNews have let loose some screenshots of the [sexy?] new HTC Sense revamp, dubbed Espresso.


I’m not sure I’m exactly thrilled with the new ‘bubbly’ icons that they’re using – in my opinion it gives them a cheap, and quite literally, plastic look. They seem to be pushing wood grain and warmer, natural colors in this version over the more industrial/streamlined/modern look of the current HTC Sense UI.
