hi,

i'm on b888. why i don't get the b892 update OTA?
ok, i could download the b892 and install it from my sd card but i would't have the vendor apps ((.


Hi, I think we don't get b892 OTA cause b888 isn't an official release.
As for the vendor apps, I went from 888 to 892 (via SD card) last week using the Hauwei download link. The zip contained only one file but did put all the 'official' apps on my phone. In my case I didn't want them but I'm stuck with then now :angry:

Use Titanium to get rid of any apps you don't want. Needs root though.


I have a question :) . I downgraded to B882 so I could install B892 OTA, but to cut a long story short it didn't work. Now I have just downloaded B892 update.app and I was wondering if I would get the same updates from the update.app that I would from the OTA installation of B892. I assume the answer is yes, but not sure if there are any differences.

so you have still the buttons in the notification bar after the flashing b892? and are there any advantages/improvements with the new b892?

thx

Hello Rusak - yes the notification bar has the toggle buttons for wifi etc (I actually didn't have them before, as I hadn't flashed the vendor app when I went to b888). And I've not seen any noticeable changes, so this is definitley not a must-have update.

Rico, like you I assume the OTA and dowloaded updates are exactly the same - I can't see any point in maintaining 2 streams with the same relase number. There were no further OTA updates when I checked after installing b892, but I assume you need a 'recognised' firmware version to be offered future OTA updates.

In fact the only reason I did it is that I could be on the upgrade path to ICS, as it seems to be the starting point to b926/b934/whatever the vodafone relase will be.

isn't that odd? i've got the config you want and you've got mine :( Have you tried the vendor update from b888? Alternatively you could try 'Notification Toggle' from the market which gives you configurable buttons from the pull-down.

Hi. Yes I tried the b888 vendor but it didn't work. So I flashed the 894 with vendor and everything works fine. )))
