Jelly Bean

Recommended Posts

Not sure if anyone posted this here, but thought it was interesting and a hint at what will be coming hopefully on the 27th.

Incase anyone thinks it's fake, if you go to the Google Play store and add the Galaxy Nexus, it does have a different wallpaper than normal.

 

Heres hoping it comes out for Sprint fast!

I wonder what all will be added feature-wise. Maybe Do Not Disturb? :)

I figure from the picture nothing that big. Considering it might be called 4.1 I'm going to guess minor speed improvements, maybe a better way to update the os, you know, for companies like HTC who take 5 years to get out updates.. (evo 3d....)

 

Google Voice already has the Do Not Disturb but it could make an entry. Eitherway, I'm excited for it.

Crazy that Jelly Bean could already be on the cusp, and there are a lot of flagship phones without ICS. It also surprises me that Jelly Bean auto capitalizes in swiftkey

Since it's apparently a .1 upgrade, it must be a lot more refinements than new features. That hopefully means not too much work is required to update existing devices. Although if you now own a shiny new Samsung phone you shouldn't count on seeing jelly bean until next year, when key lime pie(?) is released. :(

You cannot forget that Google's rumored Siri competitor "Majel" could possibly make is debut on Jelly Bean. I for one am hoping that it gives OEMs an easier way to update the OS too. Cause the wait for some devices is absolutely terrible. Alot of the wait is from added boat that some carriers(*coughcough*Sprint*coughcough*) put into the device, and the custom skins. It would be great if Google could set limitations on both of those things in Jelly Bean.

Google is too busy upgrading their OS and not making sure that the Manufacturers keep their devices up to date. In January at CES, Sprint stated that the LG Viper would receive it's ICS upgrade not long after release. 2 months after release it's still on Gingerbread. It should have never been released with Gingerbread in my opinion as it has the processing power and plenty of RAM to run ICS. And now Google I/O starts on Wednesday and Jelly Bean is now around the corner? Frankly, this is getting ridiculous.

Since we are being frank, I would never buy a device counting on an Android upgrade in the future. Ever.

 

Also, Google allows any OEM to use any Android OS it wants. It doesn't require anyone to upgrade anything at any time. An OEM can create a new smartphone with Android 2.3 and tablet with Android 3.0 right this moment and never upgrade to a newer version of Android in the future.

I bought the phone for the LTE, but hoping for the ICS upgrade. I just think that Google should have been more strict, that's all. If I can sell enough stuff, I'm going to go buy the EVO LTE off contract. At least there are custom ROM's for it already. I may even consider the SGS 3 as it really looks like a nice phone.

I think a lot of people think that the new version of android is going to suddenly fix every shortcoming on their phone. In fact, the hardware of the phone is designed to work on a specific version of android, and some features will either be disabled or not working optimally. I'm not sure that an update of android is much more than a few extra features, a theme change, and a whole new set of bugs that need to get fixed.

Let me get this straight.... You mean people actually still wait for the manufacturers to roll out updates in order to get the latest version of Android?!?!? Odd.

If they rollout jellybean for the evo 4g lte I might not upgrade. I still have the bad memories of all the problems with my evo shift after the upgrade to gingerbread. If its not broke don't fix it!

The OG Evo was terrible after its Gingerbread update. Even the patch update that also brought it to 2.3.7 brought even more problems. That's what made me decide I won't buy HTC again until their updates improve alot.

I have the OG Evo and I don't seem to remember any problems following Gingerbread. I was mainly running custom ROMs at that time so perhaps that's why I didn't see any issues, but there was certainly nothing that I noticed that I would call terrible.

The specific issue with the og evo was the fact that there wasn't enough memory and a lot of sacrifices had to be made. Gingerbread/sense had a far larger footprint than froyo/sense.

How much RAM does the OG Evo have? I seem to remember 384MB, which is the same as my OG Epic. Guess that means that Sense/Gingerbread is a pretty heavy skin, since performance actually *improved* on the Epic as it went from Eclair to Froyo to Gingerbread, at least in my experience.

It was actually 2.3.5, my bad. I forgot what the last update was to.

I thought that it had 512MB? I guess it was probably around 384 or something around there due to the OS.

 

But yeah, Sense was a pretty heavy skin. And it was all the way up to Sense 3.5 I believe. And then if I remember right, HTC made Sense 4 alot lighter. But they never put anything newer than sense 1 on the OG Evo.

Both the epic and the og evo had 512 of total ram. Now I can't speak for the epic but for the og evo the issue was rom. With 1 gig of rom, that didn't leave much space for anything else when it came to a gingerbread rom with sense.

Looking at my Epic right now:

 

Under Internal Phone Storage: I'm 438MB/498MB which really sucks...been having to uninstall a lot of apps to make room for new ones, even with everything transferred to SD card that I can.

 

Under RAM status: I'm 261MB/362MB. Yah, my performance is just SO wonderful. Stock epic with 2.3.6

The epic has 512mb of ram, some of that is allocated to the OS and whatever is left over is what you see under ram status.

      Here is a list of what the author says are bugs in Jelly Bean on the EVO LTE.
       
      "most of the issues have been Sprint’s."
       
      "There are rumors coming up from the stores than an update is coming soon to fix many of the bugs, but as far as I know there’s no official timeframe on that and that leaves many non-root users out for weeks with buggy equipment"

      Do you have to reboot your s3 when switching network connecions through the menu? My friend that has an S3 is required to reboot when he switches to CDMA through the settings menu. I do not have to reboot with the EVO LTE.

      Updated to JellyBean, but now FoxFi doesn't seem to work. When I start it, the "Sprint Hotspot" automatically starts. I'm afraid if I use that, I'll get charged by Sprint. Anyone have luck using FoxFi with the update?

      Merry Christmas Everyone! Leaked Sprint playbook images show Jellybeans starts in a few hours.

    • One thing that occurred to me after my post is that I'm actually not sure if it was based on timing or based on changing my device.  My current device doesn't attempt to use SRLTE, so I'm guessing it uses VoLTE for 911 calls.  That might be the difference. - Trip
    • I didn't know that had changed, thanks.. very good to know for testing!
    • It has to be a new SIM, not a previously-activated one.  For a long time, Verizon would only let it connect to LTE for 90 days and then disable LTE access, so I have a pile of Verizon SIMs so I could toss and replace when my SIM after 90 days.  That stopped happening at some point, though I'm not clear when. - Trip
    • I just built this PoE and USB 3 upgraded WG3526 with an LM960 in it today   I am testing it on the two Kathrein antenna I put on my TrashMonster™ tower. It works great so far. I use 3 foot of LMR400 7/16 DIN male to SMA male. The cards are pretty on par with each other. They both get lots of aggregation combos, the Quectel is Eng samples only and the LM960 is on production revision 2, model A18 now. IMEI manipulation is more for Quectel if you need that for your plan, Telit I haven't figured that part out yet. The 960 is mPCIe so no adapters for most embedded router slots, the EM20 is M.2 so unless you get one of those fancy new routers I mentioned above you need an adapter. What other questions do you have for me?
    • How do you get your Verizon SIM to connect to LTE without active service? Mine will only connect to CDMA.       Pixel 2 can do NSG, but Pixels require a licensed/pay copy of NSG to band lock. Other phones supposedly don't. Google disables Qualcomm diagnostic mode, so NSG has to jump through some hoops to get it working. On the 4 they don't even include the driver for it, and you have to flash the userdebug vendor image every month. Pixels are fantastic for NSG and logging, except if you need to band lock and don't have a license. No other way to lock bands.   A lot of people in the NSG community really like one plus phones. They support a lot of bands, and play well with NSG. But I'm not sure how good Sprint support is with their older models (ie CDMA).   If band locking isn't super important to you, you could get a Pixel 3a since they're on sale. They support dual SIM, so you can log on two networks at once with Cellmapper. SCP doesn't support dual SIM yet, and seems to report data for the active data SIM. Neighbors will show both SIMs though usually.   Sent from my Pixel 4 XL using Tapatalk
