I recently purchased a Dell Streak and upgraded to Android Version 2.2, received another message with a further upgrade. My Dell Streak is now running Android version 2.2.2 and I am afraid it may be a scam. I have an application called oovoo running all the time and it appears to have taken over all the phone. I have tried to reset to factory default and reinstalling Android Version 2.2 from Streak_318_12821_00.pkg (renamed as update.pkg) to receive an error message "Error in sdcard/update.pkg.dec". Have tried to update directly from the phone settings only to receive a message " No further updates available". What can I do to get my phone back from oovoo?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Its not a scam, the 2.2.2 update offers some bug fixes and also a new DELL STAGE UI, with more and better widgets. Also the pre-loaded application package is also greatly improved. It has the latest google map version and the car more is also there, kindle for android with widget is also present. Enjoy it.
sorry i must say that the new update slow downs my streak mini 5. i mean the new widgets and features are looking nice but, isn't it better to develop a energy and performance lower software ? ... i would like to use it without a lag when i scroll through my gallery or something else ?!
Thank you, it is a relief to know, I wish Dell had put a notice on their website about this. I really love the Dell Streak and I will now enjoy it.
Dell streak Android update 2.2.2
single line suggestion don't do it?
I wish dell should really release some patch/fixes on the same soon.
List of problems identified in one day.
1. Battery drained ( Full battery 100% doesn't last more then 6hours earlier it used to be enough at-least for day plus minus) This reason is more then enough not to upgrade please dell team do something on the same ASAP.
2. ooVoo erratic app start always automatically and gives contineous popup.
3. Lot of nonsense application installed, it should be customized where users you can select if you required?
4. Phone hangs frequently at least 3-4 times in day.
5. Gmail sync not working what to say further .
6. Sync symbol is always on. why?
Lot more nonsense things are there i have stopped using streak till time new patch comes.
users who want to upgrade should think twice.

From the looks of Naman's list, i think I will bypass the 2.2.2 update. I like the speed of my streak as it is. I am familiar with all thats running in the bckground and knows which is criticl and which isnt. I hate to even remotely feel the sluggish he's described and the bugs that it appears to have.
I'll wait till Dell does some patches.... Meantime... "I"M GOING STREAK'n!!!"
"You can talk about my granny but dont touch my DELL Streak!'
What other Forum users are questioning, is why Dell imagines everyone has access to Wi-Fi?
Perhaps 40% of users have access to Wi-Fi, so updating to 2.2.2 is an impossibility.
A public Wi-Fi spot is so slow, it can download 13% in 25 minutes, and usually there is a limit on how much access you can have.
I reasoned I would have to stay all day in the public Library to achieve the full download.
Dell is remiss in not offering the download via 3G also, and from a link on their site - which would then be seen to be trustworthy, rather than various forums.
I am amazed that the release of 2.2.2 is not even officially recognized on Dell's site, - just 2.2
Anyhow, it seems from what others are suggesting, it is as well that I was not able to finish the download at the Library.
But again I must say, that Dell needs to consider it's customer service a little more, and offer different alternatives to achieve the same solution.
All upgrades need to be offered in different formats, - WiFi, 3G and PC from their own site, rather than someone elses. That leaves you wondering how did they get it,
and is it trustworthy.
Not sure why my post got deleted???
I updated my phone to Andorid 2.2.2 last week. Big mistake. The streak is a great device and i was loving the entire experience before i got tired up with the constant reminders and decided to upgrade. Initially i thought i made the best decision! The OS looked awesome...but only for a day. I am having huge issues in using the phone now. I have missed almost all of the calls. The slide ON does not work. If the phone is in sleep, then i have to spend at least a minute running the lock-unlock slider to get the unlock bar to move across. Then comes the more difficult part, putting inthe unlock code. The response time is variable, touchscreen response sluggish. Have to re-enter passwords again and again. And if there is a delay, and the phone goes in sleep. Repeat the entire steps again. However, if and when it does work it works like a charm, so i hope there will be a patch soon. Battery seems to drain more, but that could be imperical as i have to spend lots of time unlocking the phone. If anybody knows a way how to revert to android 2.2 from the sluggish 2.2.2. i would really appreciate your help.
