On the first day of this month, Chris Ziegler over at This Is My Next gave us a small preview of the upcoming Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the T-Mobile G2X. He managed to get the Gingerbread update on his handset, via PaulOBrien.
Sadly, at that time the Gingerbread leak was not made public by Paul or by Chris.
Today, it’s a different story though. Paul has gone ahead and released the Android 2.3 Gingerbread leaked update for the T-Mobile G2X in an update.zip format. The leak has no major bugs and issues, and there is a high possibility of it becoming an official release.
Early reports suggest that the overall phone performance and responsiveness have improved, considerably. The scrolling performance, and touch sensitivity of the screen have been improved as well. The custom Camera interface by LG as seen in Android 2.2 FroYo, has been replaced with stock Gingerbread camera UI.
Sadly, the Gingerbread version is 2.3.3, which means video call via Google talk is a no go!
Interested G2X owners can head over to this thread over at MoDaCo forums to download the Gingerbread leak for their handset. The update.zip is pre-rooted as well!
