      So, you can do this update on the myTouch 3G without rooting it?

    I did the update last week on my HTC Magic. And it works perfectly. I feel like I have an HTC Hero now !

    At least this time Rogers said they would give us an update and they did :)

    @Stephen I can guarantee you it’s worth it but, memory usage is much higher now. I am usually in the range of 40 Megs free without much stuff running whereas I was at 70Mb before the update.

    So yes, it’s a good update but it consumes resources.
