Got a notification today that there is a new system update... but i haven't got it to work. I download it, but when it reboots it freezes and i have to remove the battery. After booting next, i get the notification that the update didn't work. This is on a NOT rooted phone.

So two reasons for this topic. To inform some of you who might not get this update notification on a rooted phone but are interested in it nevertheless. And to ask if other people got the same error and if they found a solution for it.

Hopefully this fixes the bluetooth issues. BTW, this is a European phone, maybe the software version of the update is different in other regions.

Edit: when the system reboots it hangs at a green android with a red ! triangle. i accidentally pushed vol-up, and i can see a recovery menu. Apparently, it doesn't find my SD card... "failed to mount... invalid argument". I also tried to perform the update without an SD card, but he won't allow that and says i need an SD card. Could this be due to the ROM memory of the phone being split up that the update doesn't know where to look?

Edit2: If i just download the update without installing, there is a long zipfile with a lot of numbers in the filename in a folder "fota_dn". If i chose to install the update, but take out the SD card after the install fails but before the phone reboots (i shut down the phone of course), this file is gone, and there is a file "update.zip" in a different folder, namely "acer_ug". Both should be the update file because they are the same filesize as the update menioned (27,2 MB). So the file is indeed on my SD card, but the recovery system doesn't seem to be able to find it. I think it has something to do with the 4GB of phone memory being split into two, and has the system check the internal 2nd partition instead of the SD card.

Edit3: I tried to manually copy the zipfile to the root of the SD card and the root of the 2nd phone partition, also in a folder called "acer_ug" on the second phone partition... but no use. The recovery menu let's me navigate to the SD card to install the update, but it litterally says "E: failed to mount /sdcard (invalid argument)". Any ideas?

It also let's me update from cache, but that folder i can't access from my computer i think so i can't copy the zipfile there...

Edit4: i installed a smaller (2GB) SD card, formatted it from the phone, and now it's performing the update... fingers crossed!

So the update was done successfully, It's still Android 4.0.3, Kernel 3.0.13, but the build number has changed to that in the title.

I don't know what the update is about, i'll check if the bluetooth is fixed later. If anybody wants access to the zip file, i will put it on my dropbox for LIMITED TIME (a week, maybe a bit longer). You can find it HERE.

Edit: bluetooth still worthless.

Is there any useful changes?

I'm so annoyed the bluetooth doesn't sync calls or names with our fiscon. The whole point of getting one of these was for my wife being in the car all day

Bluetooth isn't fixed so i don't know what has changed, maybe one of the programmers here can take a look at the zipfile.

PS: if i recall, changing the language on the swipe keyboard was done via a button with a world icon. Now you change the language by pressing and holding down spacebar.

Since installing the update, the phone has been acting up, freezing, not wanting to make calls, and the battery indicator is messed up, needing to reboot. After reboot my phone tells me i have 10% more battery than before.

I have no idea what Acer is trying to do, but they are only making it worse. I've ordered my Xiaomi Mi2, so this sucker is going on ebay in a couple of weeks. Good riddance.
