    It is possible to install Gingerbread 2.3 in HTC G-1, for that you need to "Root" your device, You must also know some basic Linux Commands to explore and install the OS properly.

    Best advice is not to update any Android device manually in the above mentioned way. Trying to do that will decrease the performance, All Mobile providers are constantly working towards providing software updates, You can wait for HTC to release the upgrade version.

    Menu --> Settings --> Phone Status --> System Updates.

    Yes HTC devices are thee major contributors for Android, Most of their Mobile segment have Android Operating Systems, Updating or Upgrading a Android device is a tedious process when you try to do it manually.

    Though you can install any Android version of your choice by rooting the device, better wait for HTC to release the primary update. Rooting procedure need sto be followed with proper procedure else you will end up losing your device altogether.

    Yes,it is possible to upgrade your to 2.3.6 gingerbird.It can be easily done.
    You just need to root your device.But rooting has its own disadvantage.Rooting can upgrade your device as well as increase your internal memory.But it might also harm your phone.Instead to upgrade it you can buy new Android phone with 2.3.6 ginerbird.You can see the status in Setting.Go to setting there will see About phone.In that will come to know.

    It is possible to get updated to android ginger bread software. It can be done very easily. You just visit the menu panel on your device and go to "settings". And then you will find an option "About phone". Click on it, so that you will get all information about your device. There, you just tap on options and then tap "Software updates". The software will be updated. If you get any problem in this process, visit any reliable service centre and get it solved. I hope it works.
