Android One users in India may have felt that they were being left out in the cold as of late. Android One launched in Indonesia and the Philippines with Android 5.1 Lollipop in tow, but it seems India has not been forgotten after all. According to a Google Plus post by Ceasar Sengupta, the Product Management Director at Google, Android One phones in India have already started receiving the Android 5.1 update.

Caesar Sengupta   GoogleThe Lollipop update is being pushed out to random users each week, although you stand a better chance of being selected to receive the update if your device is connected to WiFi. While it isn’t specifically confirmed, the update should be Android 5.1. If you have an Android One handset that has received the Lollipop update, feel free to visit the forums and let us know.

T-Mobile_Logo_01_TA

Probably the biggest question smartphone owners have is, “When will I get a software update?” Well T-Mobile is now making it a lot easier to find out that answer. They launched a dedicated site which will let you select your device (phone or tablet) and then find out where things stand.

Software updates have 3 stages and they include manufacturer development, T-Mobile testing, and completion. Once a manufacturer finishes development, they send it to the carrier (in this case T-Mobile) for testing. Testing checks for bugs, which could end up going back to manufacturing development. However, once the carrier (again in this case T-Mobile) is satisfied, then it’s considered completed, and the update will be rolled out. This new site will let you know at what stage your next update is at, as well as what version of Android it will be.

So for example, if you were to select the HTC One (M7), you will find out that Lollipop is in T-Mobile testing right now. This means that it could literally get approved for roll out any day now. Unfortunately, depending on how many bugs there are, it could still be a ways off. So no, you won’t get any target dates, but it will give you an idea of how things are progressing and if the manufacturer is committed to offering the most recent update.

You will be able to select from the Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2013), HTC One (M7), HTC One (M8), Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 4, Galaxy Note Edge, and Galaxy S 5. Of course more devices will be added soon.

OnePlus One to get CM12S and OxygenOS ROM by March

Posted by wicked February - 23 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

CyanogenMod_OnePlusOne_India

The co-founder of OnePlus, Carl Pei has announced that the OnePlus One will receive the CyanogenMod 12S update sometime in March. He also mentioned that users willing to flash the Android 5.0 based OxygenOS ROM can do so at around the same time. Carl Pei gave out the following information while responding to a user query on Twitter.

CyanogenMod 12S updates will be available as an OTA to existing devices (with the exception of Indian units). Others will have to rely on OxygenOS which won’t be available as an OTA and will require users to manually flash the ROM.

Since Cyanogen is yet to issue a stable release of CM12S, it’s out of OnePlus’ hand to issue the update. As for the OxygenOS ROM, it is said that the team is hard at work to perfect the ROM before it is made available for public use. The alpha version of the ROM has been made available by OnePlus sometime ago.

Moto X Soak Test Invites Released to Verizon and AT&T Customers

Posted by wicked February - 23 - 2015 - Monday Comments Off

If you currently own a Moto X 2nd Gen, you may be eligible for a soak test for the new Android update! Just in case you’ve been living under a rock, Lollipop is the latest Android version, and if you’re the adventurous type, it may be coming to you Moto X. All you need to do to participate in the soak test is join the Motorola Feedback Network and promise to not disclose information about the software being tested.

Soak Tests tend to be risky, due to their preliminary nature. There is always a chance that your phone may become bricked or nonfunctional, or just be buggy. However, if that doesn’t defer your pioneer spirit, head over to Motorola’s website and sign yourself up, and as long as you’re on Verizon or AT&T, you can expect to get a notification and a new OS to test.

The Moto G 2nd Gen will be seeing a soak test soon as well, but due to the older chip in the Moto X 1st Gen, it won’t be receiving a test for a while.
