The weird, yet durable, Casio Android phone bearing probably the worst name in the history of Android devices, G'zOne Commando (oh, wait, the XYBOARD and Rezound win that trophy), is set to receive an update to software version C771M100. The update brings free Push-to-Talk capabilities along with security fixes and other things you may not necessarily care about.

The official Google TV Team's Twitter revealed earlier this evening that Sony has begun releasing an update for Google TV devices. Evidently, the update includes performance enhancements for Chrome (chiefly concerning start-up time), and the ability to watch 3D Blu-ray movies.

If you're the owner of a Sony GoogleTV, the ~260MB update should be automatically rolling out any time now, but just in case yours hasn't shown up yet, you can go to System Settings > About > System Updates and pull the update manually.

Despite its former problems, when the ICS update started rolling out to the Transformer Prime earlier this month, users were elated. However, some users were immediately hit with a problem while trying to update: serial number not found. This error, as simple as it sounds, completely prevents the Prime from being able to perform any sort of update, be it manual or OTA.

ASUS is aware of the issue an working on a fix, but in the meantime, our beloved dev community has been cooking up something of their own, and it looks like it's ready to go.

A software update for the HTC Rezound is coming soon, according to Verizon's support page for the device. Hoping it's the update Rezound owners have been waiting for - you know, the one to ICS? Sorry to burst your bubble, but there's nothing to it but minor bugfixes and changes. But hey, you can't complain about them fixing things in the interim, can you? The update bumps things up to version number 2.01.605.11 and baseband 0.95.00.1118r.

Rockstar Games unleashed the 10th Anniversary Edition of Grand Theft Auto III onto the Android Market just over a month ago, and we thought it was awesome. Unfortunately, the game was only available for a few devices upon its release, but it has since added support for many more.

If you own a Transformer Prime, you'll be glad to know that the game's latest update puts your device on the "approved" list.

I am a big fan of Evernote, using it everyday to manage my to-do list and work on long-term projects. However, over the years this "simple" note-taking suite has expanded with an unwieldy number of features, making it somewhat difficult to manage. So, it is always nice to see an Evernote update for Android that just aims to make the service better without adding further bloat.

The recent update (version 3.5), downloadable from the Android Market, adds smart titles, quick saves, better layout of images, and a number of crucial bug fixes.

Since launch, the ASUS Transformer Prime's GPS issues have hampered an otherwise stellar tablet. To make matters worse, ASUS confirmed that the problem was due to the Prime's all-aluminium construction, indicating that a software fix was unlikely. Indeed ASUS was forced to release a new version of the Prime (TF700T), with an updated back panel to improve the GPS functionality. However, ASUS has not given up all hope on the original Prime as a new OTA update (V9.4.2.7) is rolling out, which could fix the GPS drivers.

A few days ago, Motorola pushed out a special soak test of the ICS update to a number of Wi-Fi XOOM owners in the U.S. Apparently, no serious issues were found by the company's engineers, as the very same Android 4.0.3 update (IML77) is now rolling out to everyone. Well, everyone in the U.S. with a Wi-Fi XOOM that is. This makes the XOOM the 2nd mainstream tablet device to officially receive ICS, losing out only to the Transformer Prime that beat it to the punch by only a couple of days.

Justin Case has done it again, bringing root access back to users of Amazon's Kindle Fire who accepted the recent firmware update to version 6.2.2. BurritoRoot 2 is an easy-to-use exploit that only requires adb (Android debug bridge) and a few moments of your time. Users looking to root their device after Amazon's latest firmware update can grab BurritoRoot 2 using the download mirrors below.

To use the exploit, just download the file and run the following commands from adb:

adb push BurritoRoot2.bin /data/local/

adb shell chmod 777 /data/local/BurritoRoot2.bin

adb shell /data/local/BurritoRoot2.bin

adb root

adb shell id

<if uid = 0 continue, if not start over>

adb remount

adb push su /system/xbin/su

adb shell chown 0.0 /system/xbin/su

adb shell chmod 06755 /system/xbin/su

adb remount

adb install Superuser.apk (skip this step if its already installed)

For more information, check out Justin's original thread over at XDA.
