If you have Sprint's version of the LG Optimus G, you may want to head into Settings > About phone and see if the latest OTA is available on your handset. The update – which bumps the device up to build LS970ZV9 – is just a small one that brings a couple of fairly minor enhancements to the device:
- Visual Voicemail update
- Battery improvements
This just started rolling out today, so don't stress if it's not yet available to you. Read More

Turducken PadFone 2, which brings a whole slew of improvements and enhancements to the device:
Don't say we don't love you, United Kingdom readers. Those of you rocking an HTC One X on the O2 network should check your settings menu, if you haven't gotten the update already. HTC representatives have taken to Twitter to announce the arrival of Android 4.1 to the former flagship handheld, and users on the company forums have confirmed the upgrade to software version 18.104.22.168. It looks like a nationwide rollout this Read More
morning afternoon, so warm up that wireless connection if you want some Sense-flavored Jelly Bean.
I'll be the first to admit – this one's a bit of a mess. Samsung just started pushing a small OTA update to Galaxy S III units in the UK, which is said to bring a number of potentially major fixes. Considering there's no official word (or changelog) from Samsung, however, we're having to go on hearsay for this one.
Firstly, this update fixes the bug that allows any app to root and gain full access to Exynos 4 systems. Read More
Owners of the AT&T Samsung Galaxy Note II have been patiently waiting for multi-window support on their enormous smartphones ever since launch, and just in time for an awkward after-Christmas present, the carrier has delivered. Today's over-the-air update brings software version JZO54K.I317UCALK7, Android 4.1.2, with the crucial addition of that useful desktop-style trick. T-Mobile Note II owners got the same treatment last week.
If you're unfamiliar with Multi-Window, the new version that the Note II uses allows users to split the screen into two sections with fully-functional apps, which are no longer limited to TouchWiz (as on the the Note 10.1 tablet). Read More
Ever since Samsung released the Note II with awesome new features like Multi-Window and Air View, owners of the original Note have been wondering if they would ever see these enhancements. Considering the Galaxy S III started receiving its Premium Suite update about a week ago, we all assumed that the Note would be next. Samsung has now confirmed that with a new microsite highlighting all of the features of the Jelly Bean Premium Suite for the phablet that started it all. Read More
Hot on the heels of the Jelly Bean update for the Excite 7.7, Toshiba is also pushing the OTA to its larger brother, the Excite 10. Reports are scattered and details are pretty scant at the moment, but we have confirmed that it's rolling out now.
It appears that the OTA – which brings Android 4.1.1 – is being pushed in stages to both the AT300 and AT305. You can see if it's available on your device by heading into Settings > About Tablet > System Updates or by jumping directly into Toshiba's Service Station. Read More
Given Toshiba's track record with Android updates, I thought I'd never get to write this post. Alas, here it is – Android 4.1.1 is officially rolling out to the Excite 7.7. At first blush, it looks like Toshiba did a good job on this one. It actually uses the new "hybrid UI" (like on the Nexus 7), which leads to a much better experience on smaller slates like the 7.7.
The update clocks in at a cool 348MB, so be prepared to wait for just a bit to grab this Jelly Bean goodness. Read More
Earlier this month, Samsung started pushing Android 4.1.2 to its test bed in Poland. It seems that all must've gone well during the short, two-week trial, as it has now started pushing the update to a variety of different locales, including the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Russia, Colombia, Romania, and more.
Not only does the update bring 4.1.2 and all its goodies, but also Samsung's Premium Suite, which features a number of useful enhancements, like Multi-Window, page buddy, an improved Gallery app, customizable notification panel, smart rotation, the paper artist app, and more. Read More
There's no doubt that the breakout feature of Samsung's Note II is multi-window, which allows users to run two apps side-by-side on the device's massive 5.5" display. The thing is, this isn't yet available on all versions of the Note II, though Samsung has been doing a pretty good job of getting updates ready and rolling out to all the different variants.
Beginning on Wednesday, December 19th, T-Mo's Note II is next in line to receive multi-window in an OTA update. Read More
