Android OTA: Device Updates & Firmware Weekly Report – August 15th Edition



NVIDIA Shield Gets Another Update




For the few out there that have picked up the Shield, you'll be happy to know that Nvidia is keeping the device up-to-date. Update 51 comes in at 400MB and fixes one simple thing: "Reduction in audio latency for GeForce PC streaming.". It's a sizable update but, you've probably already downloaded it by now.

ASUS Cube Update Rolls Out




The ASUS Cube is one of the most recent Google TV boxes that's been release in the last couple of years. ASUS are back updating the device with a 234MB update that brings with it a few goodies. For 234MB this is mostly a maintenance release, and brings support for the Logitech F710 wireless controller for users of the GameNow platform as well as taking care of WiFi stability. Somewhat bizarrely, you'll have to unplug the unit and then plug it back in once the update has been completed.

Xperia SP Gets Update




The Xperia Sp is getting an update around the world, including the C5302 and C5303 models. Unfortunately, this is not an update to Android 4.2.2 but instead more of an addition sort of thing. There are some more small apps, another row of quick toggles and the usual amount of fixes and tweaks. So nothing too special but, it's nice to see Sony taking care of their devices.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 and Galaxy Note 8.0 (3G) Getting Android 4.2.2 in Europe



Both the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 (WiFi) and the Galaxy Note 8.0 (3G) are getting updated to Android 4.2.2 in Europe. The way Samsung is updating their devices to Android 4.2 seems a little sporadic and there's no pattern so you might have to be patient in waiting for the update to hit your device. In the UK the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 is getting Android 4.2.2 and the Note 8.0 (3G) is getting it in Germany. SamMobile have update files for both however, if you don't feel like waiting but, you do so at your own risk.

Former Editor-in-Chief

For years now I've had a heavy interest in technology, growing up with 8-bit computers and gaming consoles has fed into an addiction to everything that beeps. Android saved me from the boredom of iOS years ago and I love watching the platform grow. As an avid reader and writer nothing pleases me more than to write about the exciting world of Android, Google and mobile technology as a whole.
