i have FINALLY found a working way to manually update your mytouch 3g device! all the other methods have broken links and not working SAPPIMG's, so i have to files that will update you to froyo 2.2.1! so you can skip that google activation setup if you reset your phone ;)

with the following files, it should be named update.zip what you do, is put it on the root of your SD card (not in any folders at all), then you turn off the phone, and hold the home and end (power) keys until a warning triangle and a phone appears, then you tap home and end (power) again and it should bring up a menu, and one option should say, update.zip select that option and select it with your trackball then it should show a loading bar and it should restart your phone a couple times. then when it turns on again, put the 2nd update file on your SD card, power it off and repeat the process above.

again, it should be named update.zip if not, rename it to update.zip then do the same as you did with file one, then viola! you're mytouch 3g is now running android OS 2.2.1 enjoy!
if you're updating to skip that annoying google sign in thing, because you don't have a mobile network, then this IS for you! after this update, when it tells you to tap the android, tap it, hit skip, then between create and sign in on the google page there should be a skip button, that will skip the google sign in!

The second file is corrupt. Any chance anybody has a working zip or link? I would really appreciate. I already applied the first zip update, went ok but the second one keeps crushing as per below.

Wow...

Three and a half years later and a very outdated, obsolete device this method still works to bypass the google setup. I don't even plan on ever using this phone, just wanted o see if this worked. It did....lol
