Android :: Verizon Moto Droid Auto Update To 2.2

Sep 16, 2010

Yesterday my Verizon Motorola droid was automatically updated from Android 2.1 to 2.2. I was informed that it had been done via text message. I was not consulted or warned, only informed after the fact. It does not cause any problem in my app. I used the getSDcardPath (syntax approx) rather than hard-coding /sdcard/data..... and I have not found any other conflicts.

How are Android updates handled on devices? Always done automatically, this instance of auto update was unusual, or what?

If it is always done automatically then we MUST incorporate all accommodations for future changes that are not backwards compatible just to keep our apps running on machines that they were designed to run on. (it is difficult to anticipate all future changes!)

Previous to this automatic update, I was thinking that we should incorporate all accommodations for future changes that are not backwards compatible so the app would run on future Android versions. (this option does not require knowledge of the future.)

Motorola Droid X :: Enabled Auto Matic Update For Market Apps Still Won't Auto Update

Sep 26, 2010

So one of the cool things about Froyo is being able to check off Enable Automatic Update for market apps. So i have that checked off for like 80+% of my 80+ apps (that took a while to do let me tell you). Now i have had three apps have updates available since i checked off the box, yet they never actually automatically updated. I waited, hours, still never updated. Is there a setting i need to modify? Do i need to tell it what time of day to do it? Anyone else noticing this? I only really want it in apps that i don't care about reading the new features. But it is annoying that i have it enabled and it does nothing.

Motorola Droid :: Verizon OTA Flash Update

Sep 20, 2010

The Verizon Flash Update keeps trying to install on my Bugless Beast .4 phone. When I click "install" it reboots the phone, and tries to install but fails on the install and goes straight to Clockwork Recovery Mode. Then a couple days later it tells me to install the update again.

Does anybody know of a way to disable the update notification or successfully install the update so that it will stop bothering me?

Motorola Droid X :: Freezes Up Verizon Say New Update Coming

Sep 24, 2010

My phone freezes up at least 6 times a day after the update. I have to do a battery pull to get it going again. I did a factory reset and formatted the sd card same thing happens. I called Verizon and they said they are having lots of calls from people with the same issue and a new software update will be coming out to fix it. She said that if they sent me a new phone it would have the same issue. Has any one else been told this?

Android :: Possible For Droid App To Auto-Install And Run An Update?

Sep 13, 2010

I have an application installed on phones sitting in locked boxes in different states. It runs 24/7 and has little to no user interaction.

I know how to push updates to the marketplace...can I have a thread running in my application that sees an app update, installs the apk, and opens the new apk, replacing the currently running version with it?

Motorola Droid X :: Unable To Reach Verizon Software Update Server

Aug 11, 2010

I have a verizon droid x running 2.1 that is rooted. For the last 3-4 days I have been able to access the vzw software update server (settings/about phone/software update) - whenever I do this I get the droid version of the endless hourglass and it never connects to the server to return the usual message that "your software is up to date" (or in fantasy-world, "froyo is ready for you to install, you lucky phone owner, press a button..."

This did NOT occur after I rooted the phone and seems to be unrelated to anything I did. I do not have any frozen or removed apps and apart from the rooting and few assorted root related apps, I am not doing anything that would affect this function (to my knowledge).

Motorola Droid :: Can't Setup My Verizon / Yahoo Mail Account (verizon.net)

Nov 10, 2009

For some strange reason I can't seem to set-up my personal e-mail account on this Droid phone. I click on "e-mail", I type in my e-mail address and my password, and then I click "next". And then I get a message that says my username and/or password does not match. But I am positive it does, as I have gone online to test it. I have tried retyping my username and passwrod over and over again without any success. I can't get passed that screen.
I have Verizon FiOS at my house, so my e-mail is set-up through Verizon/Yahoo.

Motorola Droid :: USB Mass Storage Auto Starts After 2.1 Update?

Jun 7, 2010

I updated my Nextheme 2.1 droid to the new Froyo (gonna check out Fabs newest in a few minutes here) but one thing I have noticed is that for some reason whenever my droid is connected to a computer it auto starts USB Mass storage. I cannot for the life of me find out where I go to stop this from auto connecting, sometimes I just plug my droid into the computer to charge while I am working. Normally when I want the USB storage enabled I use SD share widget.

Jelly Bean :: Motorola Moto G8 - Update Taking Hours?

Feb 20, 2014

Motorola moto G8. First thing I did is connected the phone to the charger and next I turned on the power. Next I got a notice about an available Android update, which I accepted. Downloading the update went smooth (via WiFi). But then my phone asked to reboot to install updates. Now I'm seeing the same screen 'cycle' for three hours. I see the Android guy with some blue geometrical shapes in his belly. Under that guy there's a status bar and the text 'installing update'. The status bar moves to a certain point, seems to freeze and then jumps towards the end. Next the screen goes black for a second and then the same cycle repeats itself.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 : Update For The Market That Includes An Auto Update Feature For Installed Apps

Oct 17, 2010

I have alot (and I mean ALOT) of apps on my Xperia, so I get around 5 app updates a day, which is now starting to agitate me because most of them are the same apps everyday needing updates.

Today I heard about an update for the market that includes an auto update feature for installed apps. But I, like many others, do not see this option on the market.

Does anyone have any idea how to get it? or if I can't get it, when can I?

Is there a way to configure the Google Play Store or a third party App which will automatically update ALL of my apps without having to apply the updates manually on the Google Play app? I'm on the DROID RAZR MAXX with Jellybean 4.1.2. My phone is REALLY slow when updating and I keep having to touch the screen or it halts (I think) the updates.

HTC Incredible : Verizon States There Was No Update

Jul 28, 2010

I just got off the phone with a member of the verizon Wireless higher ups, Mr. Avram Polinsky, Executive Relations Coordinator at Verizon Wireless, in regards to an e-mail I sent to CEO Lowell McAdam about the July 16th update. I was told there was no update for the Incredible. The only update was for the Eris. He said there is an update being worked on but he couldn't state when that is going to be released. He said there was no update coming in the immediate future. (Guess that squashes the Froyo Rumors) I talked with him about the signal and call quality issues and he stated that HTC and Google were working on the issue. He also stated he was on the various blogs and is aware of the rumors going around. He apologized for the mis-information and stated the persons who gave the bad information about the July 16th update would be dealt with. So to sum it all up, according to Verizon Wireless Executive Relations, there was no July 16th update, it was an Eris update only, and there will be no updates in the immediate future. There is one in the works, however he has no idea when it will be released, and when it does, it will take about a week to reach everyone, so it doesn't overload the system. Just an update for those who care. I think we all knew there was no update released. Its nice to get that confirmed by Verizon Wireless Corporate though.

Android : Want To Add An Auto Update An App Itself?

May 27, 2009

I want to add an auto update function to an app. This app can download a new version of itself, i.e., a new apk file. After finishing downloading this apk file, how to let the app update?

I'm going to try this by using PackageManager.installPackage(), but failed. The system said no one has the permission to install a package, even I had added "<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INSTALL_PACKAGES" />" to the manifest.xml.

General :: Verizon Galaxy S4 / Error Installing Software Update?

May 11, 2014

I just received a notice from Verizonwireless that there is a new software update available. So I went ahead and downloaded the update and attempted to install it. After a few seconds a new window opened showing the stupid Android robot laying on its back and the word "error" displayed. Thinking something bogus is going on with my phone I did a factory erase and retried the software update - same results.

Any way to determine what the error is and correct it so I can do the SW update? Out of curiosity I tried using ClockworkMod Rom Manager to install a custom ROM but got the same error indication.

My phone is a Verizon Galaxy S4 with Andriod version 4.3. The baseband version is I545VRUEMK2.
