New 514 Update For Streak 7 Found Lying On Dell’s Servers

Apparently, Dell likes to put updates on its servers before they’re served to customers over-the-air. It has done so with the recent Android 2.3 Gingerbread update for the Streak 5, and it’s now doing the same for the bigger Streak 7.

Forum member TheManii has found the 514 ROM on Dell’s servers, in four versions for US/European and 3G/WiFi versions, respectively. The changes are not exactly known yet, but it seems to fix some issues introduced with the Android 3.2 Honeycomb update from October.

Prelim changelog:

  • Next to nothing over 506/7
  • Tablet market removed
  • Standard market added
  • Minimal driver changes(?)

Not included:

  • Latest standard market
  • Stage 1.7 update on market

If you can’t wait for the OTA to hit, which “may not be till the end of the month”, then head over to the forum thread to get the download links.

New Snapdragons: Some Context & Contrast

It hasn’t been a good year for Qualcomm so far. Every device featuring the Snapdragon 810 has had a less-than-stellar fate, be it because of overheating complaints or actual decreased sales. HTC is in a particularly worrisome situation, and Sony’s Z4 is slipping down Japanese charts just over a week after its release. The G Flex 2, Mi Note Pro and Z3+ all saw complaints as well. Even MediaTek is seemingly getting an advantage over this.   But a particularly...
