With the introduction of the new iPad,Apple also released iOS 5.1.
You have to make sure your device has more than 50% battery or has connected to the charger,otherwise,you can’t complete the upgrade process.
The whole process could be done Over-The-Air,so nothing need to be talk about as it’s too simple.Strongly suggest iPhone 4S users to upgrade iOS asap as it could fix the bug affecting battery life.And Siri starts to understand Japanese now,but sorry,no Chinese support yet.So we still need to wait Siri to learn Chinese.
Congratulations!Android has been No.1 mobile OS in European market recently and the group of Android users are still growing fast.A survey shows that most Android phones in the market are running Android 2.2(a.k.a Froyo),but as Android 2.3(a.k.a Gingerbread) has been officially released at the end of last year,we could imagine that some existing Android phones will have a chance to upgrade to the latest version.Google’s own Android phone-Nexus One(which I’m using) has got OTA several months ago.As what I heard,some other phones will have OTA in the coming months.
CNet Asia gathered some useful information to show when some Android phones could get that upgrade.I have made the picture much cleared:
Android 2.3 enhances the performance and power efficiency,so it’s really worth to upgrade it.
As a fan of Android platform,I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.We wait for the day to get Android 2.3(Gingerbread) OTA too long.
When we first got the official information about the availability of this upgrade was 3 months ago.At that time,the spokesman told us we could get it in ‘few weeks’.All right,now we finally know how long is that.
Thanks Google!The good news was informed through twitter one day ago.
Yeah,the version of Gingerbread is 2.3.3 which has a lot of enhancements and provides some new supports such as WebM format files.That could be great that Nexus One is again to be a pioneer phone which supports this new format.
However,my phone has been rooted and so I can’t get the OTA unfortunately.well,I believe CyanogenMod will soon release the nightlies based on this new version of Gingerbread too.
It’s really a nice day! I just hope Nexus One could get upgraded every time when Android has new members.
Actually those things are not a bid deal.However,it still lets me feel upset.
Firstly,I’m waiting for Android 2.3 ‘Gingerbread’ coming to my Nexus One since it was released by Google last month.I was heard some official source saying that it would be available in Nexus one in few weeks.Well,the said weeks have been a month.Yet I haven’t seen any signal of OTA.
Damn it!It’s so terrible that knowing the stuff but can’t catch it.Some people may say I could root my phone and apply other third party mods.I know they are working quite well,but I don’t want to make my warranty void so soon.So Google and the Android development team,I hope you could hear my voice and let it out a.s.a.p. to eliminate my sadness.
Secondly,it’s linking to some tech stuff again.It’s about my broadband service.I have been using Streamyx service for 8 years.On the other words,I have borne the slow upload speed provided by this sort of service for such long.I can’t express how excited I was when I heard that my area would be able to get the fiber optics service called ‘Unifi’ which can support up to 20Mbps synchronously in January 2011.I was then be informed lately that it will only be here in late March.That means there are another 2 months to go.
Ok,nothing I can do.I may only pray to get them earlier as the gift for Chinese new year.
If you are an Android phone user,I bet you know what I’m talking about.Since last month,Android 2.2(code name:Froyo) was introduced by Android team and in the past several weeks,some Nexus One users had reported they got some different patches of Froyo.
Some insiders of Google told that they were still doing the testing and bug-fixing and so only app developers and some press were given to try the new version first.However,today has a different story.In the early morning,I had got some information over the Internet that some builds for all Nexus One phones were found in the Google server and the direct links were exposed very quickly.I’m the one who downloaded and installed Froyo manually in my Nexus One by referring the instructions from the comments in Engadget.
One hour after I installed Froyo in my device,I caught an article from Google Nexus One board declared Froyo is starting to OTA to all Nexus One users from today.Most Nexus One users will receive the notification of upgrade by the end of this week.
So if you are so patient,you could wait for some more days to get the automatic upgrade;if you are just like me,you can download and install it manually to enjoy the power of Froyo first.
Please follow the steps to get Froyo correctly running in your device:
1.Rename the downloaed file to update.zip 2.Put it at the root of your SD-Card and then turn off the phone. 3.Hold down the volume button and then press the power on button, it should go into a boot screen. Wait for a few seconds for it to load up proper and then select "Recovery" with the volume down/up button and press the power button. 4.Once you see an android holding a sign with an exclamation mark push volume down+ volume up + power button _at the same time_. 5.Select "apply sdcard:update.zip"(or something similiar) with the trackball and press it. 6.After the update is finished select "reboot system now" with the trackball and press it. 7.Wait for it to reboot, it can take a long time mind you.
(Thanks the reader afinite in Engadget for the detailed information.)
If you’re having an Android phone,I bet you know what is FroYo.It is the latest version of Android mobile operating system,the version number is 2.2(codename: Froyo-aka ‘Frozen Yogurt’).It was officially introduced in Google I/O 2 weeks ago and said to push to Google Nexus One in few weeks.It has some major improvements and so many Android phone users are looking forward to getting it as soon as possible.
The highlights of the changes are in the following part:
One week ago,there was a beta version of FroYo sending to some group of Google Nexus One users.Upon the feedbacks from them,it seems quite a number of bugs still stay in that beta version although the users feel satisfied with great movements in this new one.
Anyway,I hope someday in this month,I could get an OTA notification once I wake up.
