[OTA Captured] Oppo Find 7a x9006 Now Receiving Feature-Packed OTA to Build 140419

Oppo shocked the world a little over a year ago with the release of the flagship-level and highly regarded Find 5. Although Oppo is quite well known in the mid-high end Bluray player market, the Chinese OEM was then unheard of in the Android smartphone world. Not too long after, they followed up with the similarly great Oppo N1. And then in the middle of last month, they launched their current flagship, the Oppo Find 7 in two flavors: the high end Find 7a and extremely high end Find 7.

Since the Find 7a’s launch, we’ve seen a decent amount of development activity including an official TWRP release. But sometimes, the best news comes not from aftermarket development, but rather from official OEM support. And to that end, Oppo is now issuing a rather substantial update for the Find 7a x9006 from the initial shipping 140326 build to the current 140419 revision.

So what does build 140419 bring? Quite a bit, actually. No, 140419 doesn’t update the ColorOS-skinned and Jelly Bean-laden device to KitKat. Rather, it builds on the previous build by offering substantial improvements in functionality. This includes reduced call noise, MTP transfer bug fixes, a blur effect when opening the camera app, a fix to the WiFi-related phone reboot issue, and more.

This update should be rolling out now to all devices. However, not every device may be in the initial wave. Thankfully, OEM Relations Manager jerdog was kind enough to not only tell us about the update and its changes, but he also went ahead and mirrored the update for your sideloading pleasure. Naturally, to update to 140419, you must be running stock 140326 firmware. In addition, you also need to be on the stock recovery, rather than the aforementioned TWRP. So if you’re rooted and/or are running TWRP or any other custom recovery, make sure to restore to complete stock before attempting to upgrade.

While this isn’t KitKat, it’s still nice to see a substantial update being released so soon to this new device. To sideload the update a bit early, simply head over to the mirrored OTA thread. Once updated, feel free to let us know your thoughts in the comments below or the thread above.

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
