Huawei G300 update fails Google's Compatibility Test Suite

29 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

You probably already know that there is a requirement for devices to pass a number of tests (known as the CTS) in order to quality for access to the Play Store. If you run Google's CTS test against the current B936 OTA UK Vodafone Ice Cream Sandwich release, it fails!

[b]The failures are as follows:[/b]
[list][*]‘AppSecurity’ CTS Test Failures (1)
[*]‘Java’ CTS Test Failures (11)
[*]‘Android’ Test Plan - Test Failures (71)[/list]
Yes, 83 failures in total, I don't know whether to laugh or cry!

Full details of the failures are on the Vodafone eForum [url=http://forum.vodafone.co.uk/t5/Other-Manufacturers-and-OS/G300-Fails-Google-s-Compatibility-Test-Suite/td-p/1329524]here[/url].

But the above issues are not the only ones, there are also further faults with Vodafone's Android 4.0 update for the G300 includeing:
[list][*]Dictionary broken.
[*]Caller ID broken - it doesn't display in time.
[*]No hardware accelerated UI despite documented written promises.
[*]Reverts to internal storage after reboot even if you tell it to use the SD card.
[*]Sluggish and slows down over time leading to force closes etc - bad memory management.
[*]Still defaults back to factory ringtones when connected to PC or powered off.
[*]The security flaw that allows the sim card to be destroyed when visiting a malicious url has not been patched in this build.[/list]
Here's hoping that Vodafone release a new update soon, I would not like my device to be locked out of the Play Store or be so vulnerable to sim card attacks (not to mention the bugs!).

definitely a sad state of affairs. It seem like a lack of integrity to me, because carelessness, nor incompetence can explain the huge number of failures.

Isn't allowing Play Store access (which they are currently doing) illegal then as it goes against Google's terms of use?

Good to see the issue gaining a bit more publicity. It was a lonely battle for a while.

Did you report it? Forget giving Vodafone time to respond.. just get it reported and let Google do something. If anything.
