Beta Channel was updated tonight to 0.10.156.54. So far I've noticed two changes:
- Volume and Mute buttons work as expected! Previously it wasn't possible to adjust the volume with the hardware buttons (or at all if you were not in dev mode and couldn't run alsamix from a shell).
- Chrome browser has been updated to 10.0.648.151 which is described by Google as blacklisting a few (presumably malicious) certificates.
note that the critical Adobe Flash vulnerability was fixed in the last beta update and to my knowledge, Chrome remains the only fixed version to date, Adobe hasn't released a fix for Firefox, IE or Safari.
In other news, I'm having mixed feelings about the new HTC Thunderbolt phone. LTE is definitely the fastest mobile broadband money can buy but whether it's the network, the hardware or the software, things are a bit finicky so far and battery life is downright lousy. Looks like I'll be ponying out for the extended battery. Hopefully some Android updates from Verizon will solve some of these issues.
Shouldn't the title be .54? I just got the update and I'm running 0.10.156.54 (Official Build caa798a8) beta x86-mario.ReplyDelete
Still havent fixed to popping noise. -_-ReplyDelete
@Chris: Thanks for the catch. Fixed now.ReplyDelete
Eh, just root your thunderbolt and remove crapware, I guarantee your battery life will improve.ReplyDelete
@Maker: it probably would and I'll probably eventually root it like I have all my other phones but I like to use the device as it was designed to be used for at least a week or two so that I have a baseline to compare my customizations to.ReplyDelete
Fair enough, I do the same thing every time I get a new phone.ReplyDelete
I should ask why you didnt wait for the Droid BIONIC though, Tegra and all...
Jay, based on the logic in your last guess the beta post, I imagine we'll be seeing a 0.11.xxx beta release soon, as the number of priority 1 bugs for R11 is down to 16.ReplyDelete
What do you think?
