Android :: How End User Upgrade Firmware Version?

Oct 7, 2009

I'm trying to understand how end-users will upgrade their device firmware from Android ver. X to X+1. A new build of Android contains system.img and userdata.img (among others). system.img is read-only, so I don't see any problem with simply replacing the user's existing copy. However, simply overwriting userdata.img with a newer version would destroy all of an end-users application data (wouldn't it?).

I'm trying to understand how this process will work for our Android- based device. It seems that the designers of Android must have had a plan for doing this without the user losing all of their data, but I can't find any documentation about this. Googling for this information yields lots of pages containing hacker- level instructions (e.g. adb commands) -- still no idea how this process was envisioned to work for average end-users.

General :: Can't Upgrade Firmware - Galaxy S

Jan 21, 2012

how to stop the annoying media scan on this Galaxy S Captivate, which included tutorials on rooting and getting sdk files.

Now I would like to upgrade to the latest firmware. I found out that I needed something called Kies, so I downloaded it and followed the instructions - hooked up the phone after checking debugging, etc, but I got an error that said I don't have authorization or something. I started researching a bit, but got quickly overwhelmed with things I'd never heard of like "Odin".

HTC Desire :: Calendar - Software/firmware Upgrade

May 11, 2010

Hi - I just bought a Desire and can see that the Calendar program is not as good as it should be.

1. If a multiple day all day event is tapped when the user is on the month view, the next window simply shows the event on that day as an all day event. It should really show the start and end dates of the event. Currently the only way I can find to see this information is by editing the event then cancelling the edit screen.

2. If a "non-all day" event is created that starts on Monday @ 11:00am and ends on thursday at 3:00pm, then when I tap on the event in month view it shows the event happening SEPARATELY on every day between 11am and 3pm. It should say Monday 11am - Thursday 3pm. Currently the only way I can find to see this information is by editing the event then cancelling the edit screen. These are hard to explain but easy to see when you try it on the phone.

I think these issues need to be fixed in any software/firmware upgrade that there may be. Loving the phone though. Glad I went for it instead of iPhone

Android :: Any Way To Upgrade Version Of Swype

Mar 25, 2010

I have had the Swype "Trial" for a while now, but have not used it. I decided to start using it just to give it another go. (After watching that guy crush the World Record for Texting using Swype). I long pressed for input method, selected swype, and attempted to use. I got a "Your trial has ended please upgrade your version of swype." I have looked everywhere and am not able to find a different version of the one that I have. I have tried another download of it and get the same result. Is there another version of it out there that I am not seeing or am I just stuck until they reopen beta or just release the app?

Samsung EPIC 4G :: Better Time Management - Firmware Upgrade?

Aug 31, 2010

I purchased the phone today at 8:20AM CDT. It is now 1:10PM CDT and I have not gotten any work done. That's over 20% of the day already drained. All the tweaks and technology that has gone in this phone, and neither Sprint or Samsung were able to slow down time. At this rate, I won't be able to even go through a full day without not spending most of my time on the phone. I've been told that time management will be better as time goes on, but I'm worried I might need to get spare hours in a day. Lets hope there is a firmware update soon that will help with this. I am sure my friends, family, and employers will really appreciate it.

Jelly Bean :: Galaxy S3 Is Stuck At Firmware Upgrade

Aug 23, 2013

I am using Samsung Galaxy S3, model GT-I9300. So I accidentally deleted a huge file in my phone earlier and I was trying to recover the file by rooting the phone and using this apps called DiskDigger. I obviously made a huge mistake as I have now made it worse. Long story short, I've used tips from multiple websites and youtube videos so now my phone is basically forever showing this right now

After reading a few threat, some people suggested to hold the volume down + home + power but this made no difference. I can't switch it off, it will blank out for 3 sec and go back to saying "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again". I installed Kies but the device will not connect to my laptop for some reason. I have uninstall and reinstall Keis a few times. I've tried every single USB port on my laptop and even the extended USB port but none of them work too. I used my sister's android for Kies and it's working fine, so the problem is my phone.

I have already downloaded ODIN 3.07. I read in one of the thread that I have to put in a .tar file. Another person had the same problem as me (Stuck with 'Firmware Upgrade Issue') and it seemed to be working for him but I don't know what the .tar file is.

General :: Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 Not Start After Firmware Upgrade

Oct 26, 2012

yesterday I flashed my Galaxy Ace 2 with the JellyCreamMessi10 Rom.

The update worked fine, but not so the Rom. It looked quite well, but didn't detect my SIM Card.

So I wanted to downgrade my phone again to the original firmware with Odin, which also worked well until the phone said "Now rebooting...".

Nothing happened, the phone did not reboot, so that I powered it off and tried to power it back on.

Unfortunately, the Ace 2 does not react on any button, display stays completely black.

Tried several things like connecting the phone to USB and inserting the battery, afterwards, but nothing happens.

For me it looks like my phone is broken, but how I can get it back to live?

General :: Downgrade / Upgrade Without Root With Official Firmware

Nov 6, 2013

I would like to know if it is possible to upgrade/downgrade an android phone (samsung mostly) with official firmwares without the need to root? The reason is that some testing is needed on these devices and only with official firmwares it would be valid. And at will it would be nice to be able to switch versions for different test purposes.

Samsung I7500 :: Network Error After Failed Firmware Upgrade

Oct 13, 2010

I just recently purchased a Samsung Galaxy GT-17500L (its a Bell Canada phone). After purchasing the phone (which was originally unlocked) I bought a Solo mobile sim-card, which was needed in order to use the phone on my Solo monthly plan. Everything was working fine until I decided to try and update the firmware from 1.5 to 1.6; unfortunately, like a few others from Canada, I didn't properly read the guide and after the upgrade, the phone was "re-locked" and wasn't accepting my sim-card. After going through the guide posted on Pg.4 here (Bell Canada users and Brazilian Users - Galaxy 7500L (notice the L)), with the help of Rasta-Man FB posts and others, I was able to get my phone back to the original firmware, but now I'm having reception issues. The phone will at times pick up the Solo Netowork (I'm still using the original solo sim card), but then drop it after 10 minutes and just say there is no service. When I search for networks, it recognizes the Solo one (I'm guessing b/c of the S.C) but it isn't able to connect.

General :: Touch Not Working Properly After Official Firmware Upgrade

I bought LG VU II (F200L) in perfectly working condition, it almost new. After installing LG PC suite and connecting it said new firmware update is available so I proceeded which was done successfully but since then touch screen is not working properly.

Usually it responds ok but main issue is back button is not working anymore, and sometimes when I press power button to unlock screen it responds very weird and not so responsive as well as sometimes doesnt responds or opens apps that I havent even clicked.

I tried to restore, emergency restore, LG Flash tools and used correct KDZ files to flash roms successfully but nothing seems to resolve this issue.
