1 person on the vodafone forums says he manually updated to 895 then got the OTA to 936.

Which is what others (NZ and europe) report in other threads, first they get the 895 upgrade (OTA) then the ICS follows at a later date. Did vodafone forget the 895 update?

Yep, same here. I've removed all the 'value added' crap, but as far as I know, any available update should still be offered. Someones 'avin a larf.


I heard that if you remove the vodafone apps you will stop getting OTA updates. I'm pretty sure it happened to me when I was on B892 too.

For anyone who updates successfully, can you say whether you have toggles beforehand?

I wonder if the update checks for all the voda crap. I've tried flashing various update.apps, middle files etc and I cant get the damn toggles back.

I was on B892 and wasn't able to get B936 so this is what i did.

1. Download B895 from link below
https://rapidshare.com/#!download|711p12|2655687688|U8815_V100R001C02B895%20%28Android_2.3.6_England_Vodafone_05011EMW%29.rar|211220|0|0

2. Extract folder and copy dload folder to root of your memory card.

3. Then go to setting---storage and sd card upgrade, you will be promoted to upgrade to B895.(make sure you back up every thing else you will lose all apps, message and contacts etc.)

4. once phone is upgraded to B895. connect to wifi and right away you will be promoted to ICS B936 or go to setting---about phone---firmware update.

This is for UK G300 Vodafone model

somebody from voda uk told me months ago that ota updates are released in batches, so as not to overload the system............that might be rubbish but i dont know.............
