    Whatever happened to the Gingerbread update the G2x was supposed to have gotten?  I remember on April 24th, T-Mobile tweeted, “Gingerbread is coming to the G2x soon.  You won’t have to wait long.”  Still waiting…

    I had to yank my 16gb microsd card out to do the update… it kept coming up as corrupted download. Plus Launcher 7 doesn’t work, it shows it’s downloaded but it not in the application list(but shows downloaded in settings)
