    Morning all;

    I did a check on my G2 this moring and saw that there was an 52+ MB update available. After approx 25% thru the download, it stopped and I got the error message that it could not continue, and of course it won't let me retry for another 24 hours.

    Any ideas as to what the update is?

    And by the way, coming from a Samsung S2 a couple of months ago, still in love and awe of this phone.

    They need to do a better job of editing. Note the first line's reference to Samsung. Ha ha ha.

    It would be smart if they supplied a little more information to explain the acronyms. Oh well, better than nothing.

    Remembering one of the last Samsung Galaxy S2 updates made me queasy...it was the one that heated up the phone then shut off without warning and left you with pretty much a dead battery..way to go Samsung

    In the software update writers defense, and it may seem crazy to suggest this... but, anytime there's an update, if you are savvy enough to set up your phone, I think it's best to perform a FDR.

    You'd think updates wouldn't bork a device, but I suspect, some programs or processes may rely upon persistence via UN-initialized memory and those locations *COULD* be in a bad state post-update, and result in unexpected behaviors...

    It's a theory and I'm sticking to it.:smokingsomb:

    Otherwise, you have to wonder, didn't they test the update before making it available?

    I propose they probably did, but not everyone's phone software load is identical after it has been in use for a while. Best to put it in a known good starting state.

    In other words, I believe there is something to the suggestion to perform a factory reset whenever bizarre behavior is unexplained...
