Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean pre-release firmware available via new leak – I9300XXDLI7 [Download]

by: Chris SmithSeptember 14, 2012
A few days ago we heard from two official Samsung sources that the Galaxy S3 Jelly Bean update will be available at some point in October, which is not that bad, but not ideal either considering that the Android maker promised that some of its 2012 flagship devices including the newest Galaxy S version will get Android 4.1.1 soon after the IFA 2012 Unpacked event.

Samsung says Woops!, brings back local search on UK Galaxy S3

by: Bogdan PetrovanJuly 27, 2012


Now that’s an embarrassing mistake. Samsung has mistakenly pushed the local search removal update to the Galaxy S3 in the United Kingdom. Better known as the dumb search update, the patch removes the possibility to search for local contacts, apps, and other items on the Galaxy S3. Users are left with the basic web search, although a number of workarounds exist.

Yesterday, Samsung acknowledged that it inadvertently pushed the dumb search update to devices in the UK and promised to repair the problem within the next few days. It seems that they were pretty quick about it, because the new firmware, which restores local search, is now available as an OTA and via [...]

Verizon working on HTC DROID Eris weather widget issue, still investigating other problems

by: Michael OrylMay 26, 2010

HTC DROID Eris for Verizon

I got word back from a Verizon Wireless rep moments ago regarding all of the complaints we are seeing in comments about the recent HTC DROID Eris Android 2.1 over the air firmware update.  We were told that the tech gurus are already working on the weather widget issue, but that other less frequently cited problems (such as missing call audio and message notification issues) have not been properly documented yet.

I was advised that people with problems other than the weather widget should call Verizon Wireless or bring their DROID Eris to a Verizon Wireless retail store.  Verizon is somewhat skeptical of anonymous [...]

Motorola Milestone gets 2.1 update – but not over the air?

by: Michael OrylMay 6, 2010

This morning AndroidPolice pointed out to us that Motorola UK has announced an Android 2.1 update for its Motorola Milestone device, the GSM/UMTS version of the DROID sold by Verizon Wireless.

Full information on how to apply the update is available on the Motorola website, but it is worth pointing out that this operation can be completed by a Windows PC only.  Traditionally, updates for Android have come over the air (there’s one waiting on my DROID Incredible at this very moment), so the fact that you need a Windows computer and a USB cable is really unusual.

There are a number of fairly major enhancements that come with Android 2.1, but the most interesting new [...]

Motorola has posted information on its support forums that outlines the expected Android 2.1 update time frames for its various Android smartphones.  All of the non-Chinese models seem to be accounted for in the table, but not all devices currently have a target time frame.

Motorola CLIQ for T-Mobile gets 1.4.8 firmware update

by: Michael OrylApril 9, 2010

Motorola and T-Mobile USA recently starting pushing out the new 1.4.18 version of firmware for the Motorola CLIQ according to the T-Mobile USA Forums.  In spite of the fact that the post on the site says that users can manually check for an update, two CLIQs we have access to have neither received the update automatically or are able to force an update with a manual check.

According to the post on T-Mobile’s forums, the update offers the following benefits:

Improved battery life Improved software performance and stability Improved home screen Improved widget response Decrease in ‘Force Close’ error messages Added support of .WMA and .WAV media files
