Support Zio Updates

    I searched the web, I asked Mr. Google, I tried and failed.

    What the HELL is the Kyocera Update Tool and how is it used? I recieved several answers about this from their support people, and I just have a burning need to know.

    I was told by a member of a particular forum devoted to Android that when an update is released it will be pushed to my phone. Another person told me I need to Root my phone and install this or that. Another person told me that Rootong is to be done only by my dealer, another told me that Criuket is not planning a release of Froydo. I was told that the Zio is not n android phone.

    Any legitimate info, anyone?

    I don't know what the update tool is but the zio is indeed an android phone. Cricket has implied that they will be updating the os but I don't think they ever said if it was gonna be to froyo. The zio currently runs 1.6 so they might just be upgrading to 2.0. You can root the phone yourself, it has been done by one of the members of this forum. He used the one click rooting app I believe. I highly doubt cricket or any other carrier will root your phone for you.

    would be cool if someone could rip the 2.1 rom off of sprints zio version as it has 2.1 installed.

    I heard the sprint zio will have 2.2. But either way it'd be cool if we could rip the sprint version.

    Kyocera has told me February. Also using a Sprint ROM will brick your phone OR if you do get it booted it won't be able to communicate back to Cricket.
