Does anyone know when the Gingerbread OS for the HTC Thunderbolt will be available. My son has a Droid X and was able to update his DroidX with the new Gingerbread OS via OTA update.

According to Droid Life, the Gingerbread OS for the Thunderbolt (and the Incredible) is set to happen in September (no date just the month).  Well its September 5th today with 25 more days left in this month and I guess we will just have to wait.

however, according to droidlife, android central, and every other droid forum, it was also supposed to hit the tbolt in june, then july, then august. i gave up in july. the tbolt will get GB right about the same time that the htc vigor launches with ice cream sandwich....lol....and then we will all want to know why they didn't just skip GB and go straight to the newest.

I'm still patient. So far. Maybe I'll start wondering where the update is at on October 1st. :smileywink:

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

well it will be at least a few weeks since they just started updating the incredible. i'm not sure, but they never update seperate devices at the same time do they? and it ususally takes a few weeks before everyone gets the update....so at the minimum, tbolts are looking at the end of september.

I'm still patient also, I have been able to put off the MR2 update.  Thought they were going to catch up with me when I was in KY last week.  I made a mistake and let the firmware download, however, I was able to defer the installation a couple of times and eventually got the reject box which I did.  The firmware is no longer in "about phone" so I am still happy with what I got.  Will be interesting to see what happens if/when TB gets GB.  I may not install it unless AZSALUKI gives me a good excuse to do so.:smileyvery-happy:

So many keep comparing when one device will get a OS update on when another device recieves it.  At this point no Verizon 4G devices has GB and I will guess that once they start releasing supported 4G devices all other devices will start seeing the update as well..

 

Since leaked signed GB RUU files has came out and have been woeking that the update isnt far off but the thing is that no one knows for sure when.

right wildman.....but htc did announce it would be in september, and i was just poinint out that it would have to be LATE september if they are currently pushing it to the Inc. verizon wouldn't push it to 2 devices at once so while htc announced september, it would have to be at the end of the month (and i'll still believe it when i see it).
