Crashing and Master Reset question
Purchased my G2x 10 days ago. Crashes about once a day (goes dead with plenty of battery, needs battery pull to start up again). Contacted T-Mobile support who said I needed to do a master reset, thus losing apps, settings, etc. Anyone know if leaked Gingerbread update is helping this issue at all? Would rather not reset if I can avoid it.

If you did not opt out of the Google backup, all your apps will be re-installed when you sign in with your Google account. You are right though that all the settings will be lost but this is the only thing I had to redo when doing the factory reset on mine.
I ended up exchanging mine yesterday because of that exact problem. The factory reset did not help at all. I've read in multiple forums (including this one) that you should just get it exchanged as it is a known issue with that phone. I've had the new one for only half a day but so far so good.
Sorry, I have no input on the Gingerbread thing though

It's too soon to tell if the gingerbread leak fixes that or not.
Tomorrow is the earliest I would expect to hear that kind of feedback.Forum Rules & Guidelines -- CLICK HERE

Definitely exchange your phone. I was tempted to hang on until an update, but couldn't deal with the resets any longer. Had the replacement for a week now, and it has only rebooted spontaneously once, and came right back up.
I rooted and installed the gingerbread leak today (with some difficulty... install from recovery, not from Rom Manager, was the trick). Only been 3 hours, but I'm watching my battery indicator in amazement because it is clearly getting much better battery life.
