Partial Android 4.4.3 changelog revealed, will bring in countless Fixes

Android 4.4.3 changelogOver the last few weeks, the evidence for Android 4.4.3′s inevitable release has been building, and the latest information to support these theories includes a screenshot of a Nexus 5‘s device details featuring the new software build and a partial Android 4.4.3 changelog.

Apart from the Nexus 5 camera bug fix that was suggested before,  the changelog appears to detail a whole number of fixes that will make some users very happy; see below for the partial changelog:

  • frequent data connection dropout fix
  • mm-qcamera-daemon crash and optimization fixes
  • camera focus in regular and HDR modes fixes
  • Power Manager display wakelock fix
  • multiple Bluetooth fixes
  • fix for a random reboot
  • app shortcuts sometimes got removed from launcher after update
  • USB debugging security fix
  • app shortcuts security fix
  • Wi-Fi auto-connect fix
  • other camera fixes
  • MMS, Email/Exchange, Calendar, People/Dialer/Contacts, DSP, IPv6, VPN fixes
  • stuck in activation screen fix
  • missed call LED fix
  • subtitle fixes
  • data usage graph fix
  • Internet telephony fix
  • FCC compliance fix
  • miscellaneous fixes

I’m surprised not to see any fixes for the dropped call issues that have been seen on the Moto G with Android 4.4.2, but this is only a partial list and the official changelog will no doubt have plenty more to offer. There’s still no word on when this software update will go live to the public, but with the suggestion that it will be releasing in Q1 2014, we should be seeing more news about it very soon.

When do you think Android 4.4.3 will be released? Are you suffering from some of the issues that have a fix incoming? Let us know your story in the comments.

Google Releases Android 4.2+ Changelog

android4-2-2-nexus4

Have you gotten your Android 4.2.2 yet? Yeah a lot of people ha ve not as well. Some Nexus users have gotten the OTA from Google. Some have manually flashed it onto their Nexus device. Surprisingly  I have it on my HTC One S due to the awesome developers of the Liquid Smoother team.

Anytime a new version of Android comes out, we all want to know what has changed. With Android 4.2.2, not much has. With that though, Google has decided to release the changelog for everything that has changed with Android 4.2 and beyond. They nicely put “new” in pretty red font next to everything that is…well new. So hit the link below and head over to the changelog page. Next stop…Key Lime Pie.

Google updates ‘What’s new in Android 4.2′ for the ultimate Jelly Bean changelog

Android Central

As with previous updates, you can now check out Google's own complete Jelly Bean changelog for the new features of Android 4.2, all on one page. We all know about the big additions of lockscreen widgets, redesigned clock and quick settings in the notification bar, but you may have forgotten about some of the more subtle changes. We're going to be honest there were even a few small things — like some obscure networking improvements — in here that we didn't know about.

Check out the full Android 4.2 changelog at the source link below, and be sure to let us know here in the comments if you find something new or interesting that you didn't know before.

Minor OTA rolling out for Sprint Samsung Galaxy S III

Sprint Samsung Galaxy S III A small OTA update is currently rolling out for Sprint customers with the Samsung Galaxy S III. The update isn’t amazingly phenomenal by any means. The official changelog from Sprint lists just three changes.

  • Misc bug fixes
  • Voicemail application update
  • SMS 3-digit support

The update will move your device to software versions L710VPBMA6 and is slowly being delivered across the network to S III owners. Keep an eye out for it and be sure you have a decent charge on your device before attempting to download and install.

Via Sprint

P.S. If you have been wanting an S III with Sprint, they are still on sale for new customers for just a penny through Amazon Wireless.

Sprint’s Samsung Galaxy S3 receiving minor update

A new update is available for the Samsung Galaxy S3 on Sprint. The software upgrade, which brings to phone to build version L710VPBMA6, is nothing earth-shattering. The full changelog “misc bug fixes,” “voicemail application update,” and “SMS 3-digit support.”

The update is queued to start reaching handsets today. It should push over the air. As with all OTA updates expect the rollout to last days or even weeks, so if you don’t see it up front or after checking via the “About phone” menu under settings, be patient.

[via Sprint | Thanks, Andy!]

nexusae0_thumb_thumb3Transformer Prime owners, you should see something extra in your digital stocking today. The 10.4.2.18 update is now rolling out (at least in the United States) ready to download and apply for stock users. Unfortunately it’s not Android 4.2, but there are a number of small yet useful tweaks to the software.

Google Search Receives Minor Update, Changelog Currently M.I.A.

[Changelog] What’s New In Android 4.2.1 (JOP40D)

vs-screenAndroid 4.2.1 along with its source were released today, but outside of the December bug in the People app, it wasn’t immediately apparent whether it contained other fixes and improvements or not. The list of files touched by the Nexus 4 OTA was extensive, but now thanks to developer Al Sutton, we can confirm that most of those were probably just minor edits to bump the version number.

According to Al and his handy AOSP diff script, here are the only changes in Android 4.2.1 (4.2.1_r1) open source code compared to Android 4.2 (4.2_r1). Note: There could be other changes in closed-source components.

BeyondPod updated with Jelly Bean fixes and UI improvements

BeyondPod

One of the front runners in podcast apps, BeyondPod, received a notable update in the Play Store today. The bulk of the changelog is focused on improvements in UI and usability, which is always welcome. The general player and playlist UI has received a bit of polish, with better use of gradients and shadowing to properly highlight unplayed shows. Additionally, the player notification — provided you're on Android 4.0 and above — has received a facelift, offering better playback controls. Under the hood improvements in streaming, downloading and bug fixes are also included.

While BeyondPod is powerful, it sometimes runs into a predicament, walking the line between offering a lot of functionality and being overwhelming with too many options. This update works to help with that problem, making some of the UI elements more intuitive.

Facebook app receives photo-focused update

Facebook App Icon

Facebook has been making several improvements to its app in regards to photo sharing and uploading, and this latest update continues that trend. The changelog is just three bullet points. First, photo tagging has been improved to be faster. Second, you can now choose an album when uploading photos — no more mashing everything into a "mobile uploads" album. Lastly, there is a bug fix related to photos not uploading for users with certain languages (although they're not listed).

If you're not one of the billion people using Facebook regularly (over half primarily on phones) and have yet to install the app, maybe now is the time to at least take a look. You can grab it at the Google Play Store link above.

NPR News updated with refreshed UI, improved browsing

NPR Update

These holo app updates just keep coming. The NPR News app has received a very nice facelift and integrated new Android design guidelines to fit in with other popular apps on the platform. You get properly laid out search, refresh and menu buttons and an overall simple UI. The changelog also notes that its a bit easier to browse and play sound clips or whole shows right from the main screen. Above all, the app isn't over-designed, and you have to commend it on that.

As always, if you've yet to download the NPR News app, grab it at the Google Play Store link above.

Android 4.1.2 OTA rolling out to Wi-Fi Motorola Xoom

Android Central

Falling right into line with the Galaxy Nexus devices receiving an OTA, the Wi-Fi Motorola Xoom seems to be getting a 4.1.2 Jelly Bean update as well. Users in our forums are starting to report that their devices are pulling down the update and although these updates are usually on a staggered rollout, we would expect it to start showing up on all devices shortly.

We've seen the official 4.1.2 Jelly Bean changelog at this point — with most improvements coming to the Nexus 7 – but have yet to receive an official update page from Motorola. It will likely be put up once the OTA is a bit more widespread. For now, hit up the link to the forums below and share your thoughts on the new update.

Crackle Movies & TV updated with improved streaming support, new UI and more

Crackle

Crackle is one of those apps that I've tried in the past but given the bugginess of the app, I always just gave up on. Now though, a new version has hit the scene and while the changelog is small, it packs quite a few nice additions that will hopefully make it an app myself and others actually want to keep installed on their devices. Here's what we're looking at for changes:

  • Newly re-designed based on feedback from our 11 million mobile users
  • Support for even more handsets and tablets
  • Easier to find your favorite movies & shows
  • Improved video quality
  • Watch on your TV via HDMI out

Why the HDMI portion was never added before, I'll never know but it's there now and that's a good thing. The UI revamp is nice as well as it makes things a lot easier to find rather then having it all buried within the menus. I can't comment on the improved streaming but it's a welcomed addition that's for sure. Crackle has been updating their content recently as well, so now might a good a time as any to give it go if you've not done so already.

Ice Cream Sandwich finally heads to Motorola Atrix 2 for AT&T

Ice Cream Sandwich isn’t the youngest kid in class anymore, but being on Android 4.0 sure beats being on Android 2.3. Those with the Motorola Atrix 2 on AT&T will finally be able to get with the times as the cellular operator has made Ice Cream Sandwich available over-the-air.

The changelog offered by AT&T doesn’t mention much outside of the usual Android 4.x features we’re already used to so it doesn’t appear the experience will change outside of that.

But the changes made to Android 4.0 are significant enough that you’ll feel like you have an entirely new phone. The update can be downloaded and installed over WiFi in the About Phone menu. [AT&T]

I love how fast ASUS moves. When they say an update is coming, you can rest assured that it’s coming soon.

iOS 6 now available to download for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch (update: full changelog)

iOS 6 now available to download for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch

Cupertino’s newest hardware may have us purring, but Apple hasn’t left those of us with existing hardware out in the cold. iOS 6 should be appearing as an available update right now, or at least very shortly — depending on how taxed those servers get. It’ll be compatible with every iPhone since the 3GS, iPod touch 4G / 5G and this-and-last-year’s vintage of the iPad. Given the inexorable march of technology, some of the newer features won’t work on the older devices, but you can use our compatability checker to determine what new things you’ll be able to do in the next few hours.

We’ve had notes from our tipsters that the update is arriving a few minutes early (with photographic proof above), but so far we’ve had nothing here.

[Thanks, Jim]
