Froyo Headed to myTouch 3G 1.2 and Fender LE While Slide Users Wait
Rejoice newer myTouch users! Months after original myTouch owners had their Froyo delivered, T-Mobile has just announced that the myTouch 1.2 (3.5mm headphone jack version) and the myTouch Fender LE are the next in line for the tasty treat. MyTouch Slide users still have to wait a little bit longer, though, due to two specific issues.
The OTA updates will begin this Wednesday, January 12th, and will be pushed to all users by February 1st. What is not noted in the announcement is the myTouch Slide, which was promised the update back in June with the rest of the myTouch crew. TmoNews got a scoop that there are two issues left to resolve on the Slide’s 2.2 update before launch. First, wifi calling isn’t working correctly. Also, the OTA is not successfully downloading to the right system partition. TmoNews noted that HTC is aware of the issues and is “actively working on a fix.” Hopefully Slide users will not have to wait too much longer for some delicious Froyo.
Is anyone eagerly awaiting this update? Have you been too impatient and rooted your device instead? Sound off in the comments! Read more about the impending update in T-Mobile’s forum post.
