    Because the last "OMG I got cupcake" thread nosedived into chaos and madness due to misunderstandings...

    I've decided to open up another thread...

    This time...I'll lay out the rules PROPERLY for you all to understand...

    This thread is ONLY for people who receive the OTA Android 1.5 Update. That means you get a notification on your phone saying "There is a system update available"

    That means...

    NO rooted updates! We don't care about you! Only the OTA updaters are welcome here...
    If there's a big enough demand...I'll open a "OMG I just rooted" thread in the near future!

    No Dev Phones either!!

    Now that that's clear...let's lay out what the requirements are to post in this thread....

    When you receive the OTA 1.5 Update, simply reply to this thread saying...

    OMG I got Cupcake!!
    Say whereabouts you live (Zip Code/Post Code/Town/Whatever you want to say.)
    And give your opinion on what it is...

    So an example post would be:

    OMG I got Cupcake!
    Location: Beverly Hills, 90210
    First Thoughts: Not bad...still getting used to the virtual keyboard...

    This thread is for everyone who is eligible to receive the OTA 1.5 update! So the US, UK and anywhere else that receives this update!

    Now....looking forward to hearing from all of you!

    Moderators...can I ask that any messages that don't comply with my rules be removed please? =)

    See...now was that so hard. Facts, that's what I like. If you truly get the update, all we ask for is a screenshot. If you wanna avoid the flaming and disbelief, that's all you need to do. So, this is my decree for this thread...If you post that you got the update and don't post a screenshot, your post will be deleted.....by me. I can't speak for the other mods but I won't let this thread turn into a battle.

    Hi Everyone

    I am a UK user and have had "cupcake" (Kernal Version 2.6.27-00392-g8312baf android-build@apa27 #72. Build CRB17) for a few weeks now and here are my thoughts:

    • Battery life hasn't improved in my opinion. Still get through a day (just) with my use. :mad:
    • Camcorder quite useful. Not bad quality but not exactly top quality either. Can't upload any videos larger than 3mb to Youtube directly.
    • Has useful share to Youtube, Picasa links for media.
    • Faster and more responsive interface. I stopped using OpenHome because the normal UI now does everything I want. :eek:
    • On screen keyboard works a treat. Responsive and does what it needs to quite well. Works wherever there is a field to type text.
    • Orientation and Animation functions added. Orientation doesn't work on home screen but does on every other screen (email, internet etc)
    • Better looking calendar, Gmail and Internet.
    • Internet seems quicker.
    • Widgets are great. I use a battery indicator and retro date.
    • App drawer and notification bar background changed.
    • Start up droid gone and replaced with shiny android text.
    • Oh and I just found a "tutorial" section in the "About" section that goes through how to use the onscreen keyboard!
    Anyways that's the main things I have found (haven't played with Bluetooth although it no longer recognises my headset).
    This update has brought the phone upto speed with alot of the other "Smart" phones.
    Hope that wets your appetite if you haven't recieved it yet but I am glad that us Brits finally got something first (doesn't happen often you know!). :D
    Please feel free to ask if you want any more details.

    ps If screenshots are needed then let me know how to do it and I will gladly show.

    I feel rather lucky.. I've only recently bought my G1 from eBay and unlocked it. I did a factory reset, put my o2 simcard in and got the update when I connected to my WiFi. Seems that I got it on o2 before most people on t-mobile did? Not even had my phone for 2 weeks yet...

    Well its friday morning and i awake and see i have a system update. Now only 3 days ago did i install the UK cupcake. So if u did that u will receive the update notice still. Only a few problems though. Myfavs, amazon store, the IM bundle, and voice search didnt return when the update finished. I am going to call tmobile later on and see what they say. Though i have a feeling i will have to wipe mu g1 and

    this is Lethal reporting from the Bay Area,CA to say that I have CUPCAKE build 1.5 BUILD VERSION CRB 43 on a non-rooted G1! I repeat this is the real deal! I will provide pictures around 6:30AM PST...I was awaken to a sound on my G1!

    Update: Just sent a text using the virtual keyboard! WOO!

    well i hope it is not the UK update because then that would suck since i had manually updated it on my phone earlier this week.

    i am too lazy to to send pics or do a screen shot, i wouldnt waste anyones time on here with a fake report.

    so if anyone else got the UK version earlier in the week then gets the OTA update and doesnt have the IM, voice search, amazon and so forth let me know.

    Id hate to have to wipe this thing and wait again for an OTA, or does anyone know it will still be on my phone since i updated even though i wiped my phone?

    I have the same system stats as the post directly above me. However, a few days ago I installed the UK version and today awoke to an "update available" screen. I am still missing amazonMP3, voice search, etc. I do, however, have "Google Talk" which I believe is the new IM application.

    Same thing as Athlaig. I got the UK version on a phone here in seattle, WA, and had a system update. Looked about the same as when I updated to the UK version, so not sure what it is. Also don't have amazon, IM, myfavs, etc. I'm guessing this is just an update to the UK version? Not sure how to tell... 1.5 2.6.27-00393-g6607056 CRB43

    Did you install the UK version and then got the update version or just got the update? :)

    Maybe that's a sign to not use the UK update?

    I trust whatever info he provides me, and now I look like a damn fool for it. I just tried it and errors out! :( Out of pure excitement, I jumped the stupid gun. I just wanted to spread what I thought was the wealth. I'm really, really sorry everyone.

    Pardon me, I have some strangling to go do now...
