Droid owners, it’s time to start getting excited.  Rumor has it that the new OTA update that is being rolled out right now is said to be part 1 of 2 and is actually a preparation for the update... to 2.1.  The first OTA update, coming in at 61MB, was previously reported to have fixed a Facebook app glitch that prevented users from downloading the latest version.  While this is true, the sheer s...

The guys over at Android and Me uncovered a new online Android application store being developed by Motorola. Called SHOP4APPS, the new store will be web-based so you can access it using the mobile... browser on your handset or the full browser on your desktop. Motorola is also reportedly developing a dedicated Android client, MotoAppStore, which will provide a user friendly front end to the o...

Verizon sent us a message last night telling us about the new HTC DROID Eris firmware update that has started going out to users.  This isn’t an update to a newer version of Android, which we... are still expecting, but rather a simpler update that fixes some problems with the initial version of the device.

Not all people experienced all of these issues, but there’s probably some...

Anyone who uses a Motorola CLIQ should have received an over-the-air (OTA) software update. Unfortunately this doesn’t upgrade the CLIQ from 1.5 to 1.6, or anything drastic like that. Instead, it... updates the current version, Android 1.5, but seems to solve a lot of the original issues CLIQ users were facing. According to the official announcement, the update will predominantly help improve ba...

Those that are waiting for Android 2.0 on their Hero will take some peace in the following news, but will ultimately have to keep on waiting. Sprint have released an over the air (OTA) update for this... device, but it is nothing to get excited about. The change to 1.56.651.2 is less of an upgrade as it is an update. Nonetheless, OTA roll-outs are always encouraging to see, and prove that carriers are d...

Not too much to say here. Today my G1 told me that it was ready to install a new firmware update. While I didn’t know specifically at that time that it was talking about RC29, that is what I... was expecting.

Once I gave it the go-ahead, the entire update process took 6.5 minutes. Not much to say about it, really. It showed some graphics and progress bars as it copied and then flash...

We mentioned last week that a new over the air update for the T-Mobile G1 was on its way.  It was called RC28 and was to address a bug with the Amazon MP3 store and offer a few enhancements.  Well,... since the Android browser security flaw was found, Google and T-Mobile have halted the RC28 update that was already in progress and will instead be sending out an RC29 update that fixes the browser sec...

That’s right, we’re expecting an OTA update of the G1 to start going out tomorrow – 24 hours after the device went on sale in stores. Supposedly the update will be fairly minor in... order to make sure the system works and such. At least that is what Will, the admin T-Mobile’s Forums, says is the case.

It seems that this update will fix a bug with the Amazon MP3 stor...
