Streak Froyo OTA Update for O2 Customers

Hi Folks,

I was recently informed that the O2 OTA update for Froyo would be available starting today. I had a customer looking for it, but no luck as of a few hours ago. So I provided him with a manual link for O2 customers. The link appears to be working, if you don't want to wait for the OTA update. Here you go: http://cot.ag/fKoFRX

If you are an O2 Streak customer, please post here with any feedback on the Froyo update (include whether you used the link above or whether you got the OTA update automatically).

Thanks!

Amy

Re: Streak Froyo OTA Update for O2 Customers

I have just downloaded the new update. It only took 15 minutes and the new backup process was so easy, even for a non techie person like me. 1st thing I checked for was to see if the front camera was back - and it was - Hooray. Only problem I have found so far is that half my contacts have disapeared and I dont seem to be able to backup to/from the computer via the Dell PC Suite.

Maybe I am missing something and someone can tell what it is.

Thanks for the update

Re: Streak Froyo OTA Update for O2 Customers

Since you'll ignore this, like the last time, I'll restate the issues:

1. No WMA support... Again (Do you guys ignore us, you giveth, then taketh away??)

2. Sluggish, again, still if we root it, we can fix your glitch by setting the hardware render mode to 1 instead of 0

3. The notifications bar is gone, thus also has the quick options for switching on/off the wifi/BT/data

4. StageUI looks like 4 year old designed it.  The widgets take up 4x4 spaces, but rather than let you utilise the space left over, you put parts of the widgets on either side, making it look messy, ugly, and something out of a first years programming class.... Actually no, their UI's are usually prettier.

5. And if that damned Dell Sync app pops up just one more time when I pop my cable in for a quick recharge, I'll be sending you my streak, with the words 'NO THANKYOU' engraved over it with the fine tip of a dagger (Easy enough since the screen is easily scratched) I mean hell, can't sync it anyway, the desktop software is atrociously bad, worse than the ANdroid OS

 

However, I have something positive to say, somewhat anyway, at least it's a marginally better attempt over the 2.1 version, though it looks like you spent more time adding gloss paint to some god awful widgets than to the software, or the customers views.

Re: Streak Froyo OTA Update for O2 Customers

Amy,

Since upgrading my Streak display is upside down, and doesnt rotate to protrait !!

 

The only way to fix this is to turn off 'auto rotate' then it is stuck in landscape, although this is the right way round

 

how do I fix this please?

After the 2.1 fiasco, I'm going to wait till I read that the upgrade has been successful for the majority of O2 customers..

Re: Streak Froyo OTA Update for O2 Customers

Hi Amy (and 02 peeps)

I updated the 2.2. last night and it works great, a little bit of tweaking, but thats to be expected I guess.

So was really happy with the new elements in the update. However my battery died overnight - it just needed charging - when I plugged the Streak into power and attempted to turn it on the phone will not go past the "DELL" start up screen, for some reason it isn't connecting beyond that.

 

I've checked the sim (placed that in another phone to see if it wasn't working or not. It is fine.

Checked the SD card in my sd card reader - that is fine.

I can only suspect there has been a fault in the operating system upload that locks the phone at start up. 

Any suggestions on how I can get the streak beyond this start up screen, is there a a reset button on combination I can process?

I really need answers on this, I need phone for work and ill parent purposes. A speedy response would be appriciated.

Cheers

Glen

Re: Streak Froyo OTA Update for O2 Customers

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the feedback. Regarding your backup question, in my original blog, it was recommended that you use the Dell Backup & Restore app to backup your data. Also, one of the changes following the 2.2 Update is that the Dell PC Suite will no longer be supported. The Dell Mobile Sync software will be the new version of Streak sync software and must be downloaded from the Dell support web site.

If you haven't tried it yet, open up the Dell Backup & Restore application and try to restore your data.

Let me know if that helps.

Thanks,

Amy
