I got my message in India, 2.29.405.2 update available
Yep I got this in UK today, just updating now
Same in Belgium. Haven't noticed any real difference yet.
Had this since the RUU was leaked the other month, runs fine. Few app updates but that's about it. Oh, and new radio
Mines updating now, I hope the radio works better..the current vers. is lousy...Samsungs are great tho' ! for reception...
Just did the 2.29.405.2 update on my HTC Desire this morning and it has broken the ability to watch news feeds on the BBC web site
I have tried three times and in every case internet explorer hangs after a few seconds of video. Thereafter a full reboot is required to use internet explorer again
Does anyone know if it is possible to revert to the earlier release?
You could just flash the 2.10.405.2 RUU if you wanted to go back - I, personally, have had no issues using Flash on the BBC website. Bit I always flash from RUU and set my phone up again as opposed to using an OTA (yes, I lose data but at least I know it works). If you were going to lose all data going back to 2.10.405.2 you may as well download the 2.29.405.2 RUU and flash that instead
Is this gingerbread update ?
To answer the question, no this isn't Gingerbread. If it was there'd be a LOT more hype about it
Did you watch it via WiFi as this is my failure mode? and do you know where I can find the files?
Yes, I watch over Wi-Fi as it doesn't work over 3G at all anyway
it was said this is an update on 2.2 NOT gingerbread..
see this is what im worried about....I think im gonna happily sit on the previous update..
I mean OTHER than radio which I dont actually use and havent on a phone or...well...even a stereo for years actually...is there any OBVIOUS updates?
The radio isn't as in FM radio, it's as in drivers that link Android to the hardware. Newer radios give better battery life, iron out bugs in I/O, etc
ah my bad...just the way radio was mentioned above in the post made me think the FM one lol....nevermind...
yea but was there really anything wrong with the previous version? I mean I've never had any issues with it...any issues I've had has been software I've installed not the phone itself.....apart from vodafone terrible service when it comes to tethering and not seeing the phone properly and MOBILE sites coming up on my laptop NOT full internet ones..
Factory reset and my Desire still hangs after playing 2-3 seconds of video
Lets see how good HTC support is..............
Wonder IF this update is a requirement BEFORE the Gingerbread update? You know, laying the groundwork for a pretty major update.......
I was about to ask the same thing. I guess nobody will be able to answer this question. Time will tell. Not installing the update right now as I will probably have to re-root the device...
OK, lets get 1 thing straight here...
Gingerbread will first be released for the Nexus One. This hasn't happened yet. Once released on the N1, other OEMs will then get the code and tweak it with their own UI and then release for unbranded handsets. This will probably be a couple of months AFTER the N1. Then operators will tweak it again and release it for their handsets. Again, this will probably be a couple of months on top of that
There's going to be a LONG wait for Gingerbread, assuming we ever get it at all.
Fyi, it is actually the Nexus S and NOT the N1 that will be first to arrive with Gingerbread, the N1 will get it along with all other relevant devices but only AFTER the S is on sale!
It is already out on a few test devices (the S and the SE Zeus - aka PSP Phone) to name but two so you might want to update your info
Android 2.3 update now rolling out to Nexus One owners -- Engadget
Yes, I'm aware of my mistake - keep forgetting Google have decided to go with Samsung for the next Nexus handset (massive fail IMO). It's also just popped up within the hour on XDA that Gingerbread has been released but as I'm at work I don't sit on my PC all day so missed the news.
Just updated....should I factory reset after updates or should it be good to go?
You can if you don't mind setting the phone up again from scratch but you shuld be good to go as you are
With the exception of VillageGuy has anyone else seen any problems with Flash sites (especially BBC)?
HTC are taking the matter very seriously and are in the process of escalating the issue as they were unable to resolve the problem by performing a full 'crowbar' reset and a few other things. They appeared very concerned for what it is worth!
