Gingerbread update for the T-Mobile G2x goes live
For all of you T-Mobile G2x owners out there frustrated by the fact that your snappy superphone still runs Froyo, we bring some great news today. After many sleepless weeks of anticipation, you can finally download the G2x's Gingerbread update, which is already live and ready to be obtained via the LG Mobile Support tool.

The 178MB update bears a GRI40 build number and brings the smartphone's Android version to 2.3.3. Besides receiving all the goodies that Gingerbread carries along, such as power management tweaks and improved application controls, the T-Mobile G2x should now be free of the bugs that plagued it for so long. The only inconvenience that you might experience while installing the update is that it is not available over the air just yet. Instead, it requires you to hook up your smartphone to a computer and launch the aforementioned LG Mobile Support tool, a link to which we have provided for you below.

Those of you who have downloaded the update already, feel free to let us know if it works fine on your T-Mobile G2x by dropping a comment below.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!
