The HTC Thunderbolt has a had a pretty hard time getting the upgrade from Froyo to Gingerbread. We’ve seen leaks, and rumors galore about the update. Not to mention the fact that the official OTA got yanked, which has gotten Thunderbolt users pretty frustrated, and perhaps looking to change to a different device – maybe the Galaxy Nexus? As far as we know, the Galaxy Nexus rumored to be a Verizon exclusive when it comes out sometime in late October or early November.

Hopefully, HTC and Verizon have worked together to fix the bugs in the previous OTA so that Thunderbolt users can finally get a taste of Gingerbread, and I have to say its pretty tasty. According to @HTC official Twitter account, they “anticipate the update being available soon”.

As soon as we hear anything about the official Gingerbread OTA for the Thunderbolt we will be sure to let you know.

Are you one of the few that got the Gingerbread OTA before it was pulled? Let us know in the comments.

    I was one of the Few who got the update, and it was business as usual for my Tbolt. Voicemail notification is still hokey, the LTE radio works when it wants to, and for some reason when its connected via usb to any pc the touch screen becomes unresponsive. but who needs the touchscreen?

    Like I told VZ when it works the TBolt is a great phone…When it works..
