We have some exciting news for those of you with a T-Mobile G2X handset, as we have discovered that an official Gingerbread ROM is now available to download. This ROM may be unofficial technically, but the software is thought to be an forthcoming release from T-Mobile anyway.
As most of you will be well aware, the G2X shipped with Froyo, but T-Mobile has always insisted that the official Gingerbread update would be coming soon after release. At the end of April, they informed users via this status update on Twitter that the update would be coming ‘soon’, but this ROM release now gives users the opportunity to sample a taste of Gingerbread before T-Mobile get their act together and roll out an official OTA update.
The download links and instructions can be found over at MoDaCo here for those of you who are interested, as reported from Phandroid. There’s also a useful video walkthrough showing you that the ROM does indeed work fine on the G2X, but as always, you should only attempt this download if you know what you are doing and you don’t mind voiding your warranty.
If you are going to download this ROM and install on your handset, let us know how you get on. Is Gingerbread running smoothly on your G2X?
