Google Glass XE17.1 OTA Captured, Updated Factory Image and Rooted Boot Image Now Available

medium

Two days ago and coinciding with Google Glass‘s public release, Google shed some light on the upcoming XE17.1 firmware. This update follows up on last week’s XE17 bugfix release, while bringing a few new features to make upgrading worth your while.

For those in need of a quick refresher, XE17.1 brings back the ability to share places from Google Maps on Android directly with Google Glass. This place sharing functionality requires Android MyGlass 3.0.0, which was made available earlier this morning.

Naturally given the newly restored places sharing, many Glass Explorers found themselves lusting after the XE17.1 updates. However, XE17.1 hasn’t made its way to consume. . . READ ON »

Google Opens Glass Purchases to All in the US, Unveils XE17.1 Firmware

medium

You may recall that a few weeks back, Google erroneously made Google Glass purchases open to the public for a few hours. This particular order page wasn’t exactly intended to be opened to the general public at the time. Rather, it “was created to accommodate potential Explorers who were still in the pipeline”
from the previous single day sale held a week and a half earlier.

But now, potential explorers living in the US who were on the fence before can now get their orders in at their leisure. This news comes straight from the official Google Glass G+ page, where the team states, “starting today anyone in the US can buy the Glass Explorer Edition, as long as we have it on hand.R. . .

Google Glass XE17 Firmware Trickling out to Glass Explorers

release notes

A little under a month ago, Google Glass received a rather healthy update to firmware version revision XE16. For those who don’t recall, XE16 brought all the latest KitKat goods, as well as several new features such as Photo Bundles, photos in hangouts, voice commands sorting, and more. A little while later, the factory images for this update were released, and a pre-rooted bootloader was made available. Now, XE17 has just been released, and it’s trickling out current Glass explorers.

Unlike the previous XE16 update, today’s XE17 build doesn’t bring anything in the way of brand new features, making its version number a peculiar choice for Google. That said, XE17 is sti. . . READ ON »

Google Glass Now Open to Anyone… with $1500 to Spend (Update: Not Anymore)

glass

Google Glass, which recently received its official update to KitKat (as well as a maintenance update to XE16.11), is the company’s first attempt at wearable computing. Although it has been available to developers and early adopters for a little over a year now, many would-be purchasers have been unable to get their hands on Glass. This changes today, however, as Google has opened up Google Glass Explorer Edition to everyone… well everyone with a spare $1500 USD to spend, that is.

You may recall that a few weeks ago, Google made Glass purchases open to everyone for a single day. Now looking back, this move can be viewed as Google testing the waters of consumer adoption. But they were either. . . READ ON »

Google Glass XE16 Update Factory Image and Rooted Boot Image Now Available

iiiiiiii

You may recall that early yesterday, we talked about the XE16 update to Google Glass, which finally brought Android 4.4.2 KitKat to the tech world’s most controversial piece of wearable computing. For those who don’t remember, XE16 brought several new additions such as Photo Bundles, Photos in Hangouts, and Voice Command Sorting.

At the time that the update first rolled out, we noted that although direct OTA links were available for your updating pleasure, there were no factory restore images to go along with the update. This was then a rather roundabout way of reaching the XE16 build, as users on older software who wanted to force the OTA would have to load XE12, and then receive or sideload the in. . . READ ON »

[OTA Captured] Google Glass XE16 Update Brings KitKat, Photo Bundles, Photos in Hangouts, Voice Commands Sorting, and More

product_7

product_7Earlier today, for one day only, Google opened up Glass Explorer Edition purchases to interested parties living in the US. Of course, you still have to plunk down $1500 in order to get your hands on this sleek piece of beta wearable tech. But for those looking to be on the bleeding edge, the investment is well worth it.

Back in December,  was updated to firmware version XE12. This brought many new features such as wink pics, Hangouts and YouTube Glassware, improved Play Music support, and improved Google Search cards. Now, Glass has received the long awaited update to XE16, which among other things, brings the device up to Android 4.4 KitKat.
