    Hi all,
    I am not sure whether this is the correct place to post this thread. But it looked closest.
    Is there a reference page or website, which says the release dates of the Android releases (I mean those already released). I mean I get confused with the numbers 1.0, 1.5 and cant distinguish which one is donut or cupcake. Is there also any way to distinguish which version do I have checking the source code? I mean a version check make file or something like that. I was told to download a code on date 24-04-2009. Which one do I download? Cupcake or Donut??:mad:

    Thanks,
    Tony

    Hey there

    Settings->About->Firmware Version tells you ur current Version.

    1.5 is Cupcake, 1.6 is Donut, 2.0 is Eclair.



    If your phone has a "with Google" on the back, you will get your software updates automatically over the air. If it does not, you will need to check back with the manufacturer on getting your update.

    If you've got a HTC Magic without "with Google" / branding:

    Dear HTC customer,

    Cheers.

    Thank you guys both. The Android Wiki Page is really helpful. Is there any way to distinguish the releases from the Android Source code you download from repo?

    Tony there should be tags for the versions of the source, but not sure where you'll have to look to find them :-S

    Do you think it might be in one of the make files?
