*UPDATE* So it appears the Gmail 4.2 beaks the voice command feature “note to self”. If this is something you use a lot, you might not want to try the new Gmail out just yet.

So a couple days ago AndroidPolice released the new Gmail 4.2 with Pinch-To-Zoom and swipe to delete.  I thought I would share it with you, Instructions included…

First download the apk here…

Gmail2.apk [mirror]

These are the steps I used to install it on my S3 and it worked flawlessly. (root required)

1. Download apk
2. Navigate to folder with apk and copy the apk
3. Navigate to /system/app/ and rename Gmail.apk to Gmail.bak (this way you preserve the apk for later just in case of update)
4. Paste the apk you copied
5. Rename to Gmail.apk then fix permissions.
6. Reboot and enjoy
