    It’s not available for me :( — Says my system is currently up to date. I’m running 2.2 FRG22D

    Same here. I want my Gingerbread!

    2.30.20 is not Gingerbread… it’s the “system version” according to my phone, which still reports Android Version as 2.2

  • UpsideDownTire

    I agree with Steve. (His post is on January 13, 2011 at 8:23 pm).

    I just ran a check for system updates and was told “Your device is up to date! No update is necessary at this time.”

    However, in the same settings it reports:

    “System version” as “Version.2.3.20.A955.en.US”
    “Android version” as “2.2″

    It is not Gingerbread – and if your device is rooted it will un-root it…

    Downloading “Gingerbread”now as I read these posts, I hope……..

    I’ve got the gingerbread update and it sucks!  Uses battery faster; swype is totally messed up; touch screen is now “poke hard” screen; ending running services takes 3-4 minutes instead of 30 seconds; and I can’t even see how much battery life I have left!  That’s just a few of the things wrong.  DO NOT recommend updating now;  wait for a few fixes to see how it turns out.  Anyone have any idea how I could go back to froyo 2.2.1?  Verizon can’t help, and yes, they checked to be sure it upgraded properly — it did.

    @Sunsetquincy I agree.. this is making me hate my phone. my battery is GONE in 5 hours and with out use. I made sure the update did not turn anything unnessary on. I wish we could go back to froyo.. I am almost willing to reset and install this version again. my phone is worthless to me now.
