HTC Hero, Legend, DROID Eris, myTouch 3G and myTouch 4G added to Unlock Bootloader list

Yesterday, HTC’s official HTCDev Twitter account revealed that a few new devices had been added to the manufacturer’s developer page. For owners of HTC-branded devices who enjoy tinkering with their devices, having an unlocked bootloader is a key step in that process. Last year, HTC confirmed that the HTCDev page would be the go-to location for those who… Read more

myTouch 3G 1.2 and Fender edition to see Froyo

It’s been nearly a month since the rollout of Froyo 2.2 for the original myTouch was completed, and since everything has gone smoothly enough, T-Mobile will now be moving on and pushing the update to the myTouch 1.2 (or 3.5mm headphone jack edition) and the myTouch Fender LE. The T-Mobile forums in which the information is posted says that the update… Read more

The promised Android 2.2 update for the myTouch 3G is being rolled out now, with many users already reached and the rest getting it by the end of the month.

The myTouch 3G is being updated to Froyo? Some of you said it wouldn’t be done, and well, some of you still do. No one blames you, which is why TmoNews has come up with some picture evidence to support the claim that the original myTouch 3G will be updated to Froyo in staggered waves starting tomorrow, lasting until the 25th of this month.

It’s about time! We’ve been hearing about the myTouch 3G getting an update from Android 1.6 for quite some time now.

MyTouch 3G 1.2 Shipping With Swype

While T-mobile has been getting ready for the new MyTouch 3G 1.2 (just a MT3G with a little more RAM and a 3.5mm jack), by doing things like lowering the price of the original MyTouch to $99, more and more news keeps coming to the surface about this mysterious device. This particular tid-bit happens to be of the Swype variety (you know, that crazy new… Read more

myTouch v. 1.2 coming Feb 10th

While I’m not sure the “v. 1.2″ name will stick, it looks like TMoNews was right on the money with an earlier leak about the phone’s existence. This new image from T-Mo’s internal system (which is difficult to read even at full size) confirms that David and friends even had the date right. Now that the LE is sold out and the shelf life of the original… Read more

myTouch 3G Limited Edition: Clapton

It looks like this phone has taken the nickname, “Clapton,” according to the title of the video below, posted to T-Mo’s official YouTube account. Maybe that’s the name of the commercial. Does that make this the God of phones? Sounds like a good title to me, and this phone needs all the extra style it can get at this price. Don’t get me wrong; I love the… Read more

Magic/MyTouch and Hero getting 2.1

Heres another one for the “it could happen” file. There is speculation circulating around that both the HTC Hero and HTCH Magic/MyTouch will be receiving an update to the new and improved 2.1 platform. We already know of a possibility that T-Mobile already has an update to 2.1 packaged and ready for transmission. And Rogers has also confirmed that 2.1 will… Read more

Fender myTouch 3G Limited Edition comes January 20th

It seems like this device has been bumped back a couple of times, though I don’t recall any officially announced dates being blown. There was talk of a December 30th launch at one point but it looks like the latest rumored date – January 20th – has now been set in stone. At least that’s when the ads will begin, featuring Eric Clapton and other… Read more
