I'm on giffgaff and get a 'Communication with the server failed. Unable to obtain the new versions list' when I try to do the Firmware Upgrade .. it's been doing that for the last 30 mins - anyone else had this?



EDIT: Seems to be working again, downloading now.


I updated mine through GiffGaff this morning at 10AM with no problem.

So no ICS udate then Posted Image Thought it was a little early for that,but it would certainly boost sales alot,so whats holding them back unless its not ready ?
So no reason for those with volume fix in place to even worry about this,unless of course like me you are a flashaholic and would flash it just because I could Posted Image
Of course this is an update not a flash zip,but same principle I guess.

Yep, I have this compulsion too. Phones, satellite receivers, tv etc. Gets me into trouble quite often

Those of you thinking that whatever network you use has any effect on wether you get the update are seriously confused or misled. The rom is still a Vodafone rom regardless of what network you use so will still only receive vodafone updates

looking at the updater-scipt..

ui_print("Verifying current system...");
assert(file_getprop("/system/build.prop", "ro.build.fingerprint") == "Huawei/U8815/hwu8815:2.3.6/HuaweiU8815C02B882/C02B882:user/ota-rel-keys,release-keys" ||
	   file_getprop("/system/build.prop", "ro.build.fingerprint") == "Huawei/U8815/hwu8815:2.3.6/HuaweiU8815C02B885/C02B885:user/ota-rel-keys,release-keys");
ui_print("Checking patch files...");

so it's only going to update B882 & B885


If anyone else wants a poke, its downloaded into /sdcard/HwOUC

I updated mine with the update from the phone. Went to setting and then at the top it will say Upgrade. Upgrade firmware to Asura.
Only 14 MB in size.

It fixed my volume issue. Now it's much louder! :D

Interestingly, I ran the 884 update the other day to fix my volume issues, and then restored de-branded 882 rom. and I ended up with my AMSS & OEMSBL at 884, and everything else at 882.


well by that statement we can assume that is where the fix is written too! or not?

Im not sure, I can only assume so, however the 885 update seems to replace:

system/etc/AudioFilter_MSM7225A_U8655.VerE.csv
system/etc/AudioFilter_MSM7227A_U8815.VerE.csv

and applys a patch to:

/system/lib/libaudio.so

Hi,

I'm still with the B882 stock ROM and haven't rooted the phone yet.

Has someone confirmed that rooting still works after the update?
Since I once let my Wii install an upgrade which closed the way of jailbreaking it I became very careful with applying vendor updates... ;-)

Thanks,
Fabrizio

Its almost definitely OEMSBL causing the downgrade to fail. You only need to check the sdupdate log text to see that it seems to check the state of this and fail.

Great, thanks! So I just installed the update. Speaker is way better now for media playback, still the ringtone could be louder.

I strongly believe that this is only a temporary hotfix for me until either the official ICS or a CM9 port is available... :)

I've found B885 more laggy thatn B882 and the capacitive buttons to be even less responsive than they were originally.

B888 Seems to have solved all those issues for me tho.

I belive that Ben & Jerry tried selling thier IceCream wich in the UK last year, but there was not a lot of interest in it, so its gone back to the graveyard.

I don't know about Americans but this is the reason I'm fat:

Pulled the battery and on restart it said a couple of errors then started up and i had to go thru setup of market and all vodafone stuff was completley gone. Seems fine, weird how everything is gone tho
