Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean has finally started arriving on Google Nexus S in form of the JRO03E OTA update starting with select regions of the world but if you haven’t received the automated over-the-air update yet but can’t wait to get Jelly Bean on your Nexus S, we’re here to help! In what follows, we will guide you through installing the latest Jelly Bean up and running on your phone in no time. Read on for more details and the complete instructions.
We have covered a few Cydia tweaks that allow iOS users to get rid of the OTA update badge on the Settings icon of their iPhone or iPad. When you think about it, such tweaks offer nothing more than a cosmetic utility, and if you really want to avoid the update, the chances of accidentally hitting the Download & Install
button in the Settings app remain pretty sizeable. That is exactly what makes Software Update Killer
a much more useful tweak compared to similar ones in the past. The tweak does remove the badge from the Springboard Settings icon, but it doesn’t stop there. If you install Software Update Killer, it will remove the icon badge, the notification bubble over the General
tab in Settings, and ultimately, disable the update download button altogether! This can prove to be an extremely useful feature for users who are rather accident-prone, and fear that they might hit the update button by mistake.
If your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch is jailbroken, then you must be familiar with the routine which is followed each time a newer version of iOS is released, The developers start working on finding new exploits and creating the appropriate jailbreak for the the latest release. The duration in which jailbreak masters carry out their search for exploits might consist of months at times, and all the while, jailbreak fans are usually instructed to stay away from the newer versions of iOS until the jailbreak is released. If you update by mistake, then you might end up stuck without access to the Cydia store forever. The main culprit for making people accidentally update in such scenarios is the OTA update (since iOS 5), which presents itself in the stock Settings app, with an annoying badge staying visible on it until you finally succumb to Apple’s wishes and update to their latest firmware. There is a solution to this problem though, and you can easily remove the Settings OTA badge using the Cydia tweak named noOTA
Couple of weeks back we reported
regarding Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread update for Google Samsung Nexus S. Although the update did upgrade the OS version to 2.3.6, but one major flaw was broken Wi-Fi Tethering. Concerned Androiders and Nexus S owners debated this issue for quite some time
. Apparently an all new Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread update for the Google Nexus S is on the roll again but this time with fixed wireless tethering and a different build code. The build number of this update is GRK39F whereas previously it was GRK39C. As the update is pretty much similar to what rolled out previously, it is apparent that there is no changelog available for this one.
Google Nexus S is primarily a developer phone which makes it lucky enough to get first taste of any Android update that rolls out. According to count less sources, Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread is rolling out for Google Nexus S right now. The new update is basically targeted towards fixing the notorious voice search bug which in some instances is becoming a deal breaker all together. However there are multiple claims of different blogs, forums and portals that this Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread update for Google Nexus S basically breaks your phone’s tethering capability altogether! We don’t know what to make out of this, but if these rumors stand to be true, then it’s better not to update to this version unless it is clear if tethering works or is broken. Read More

Finally the wait is over for HTC Desire owners waiting for the official Android 2.3 Gingerbread update. Multiple sources, including XDA and some other Android portals, confirm that Gingerbread awesomeness is on the roll now and all unbranded HTC Desire handsets are eligible for this update. Although we appreciate the OTA update from HTC, but this being only for unbranded handsets, will have nothing to do with carrier prisoned folks.
We first reported about AT&T using 7-14 days OTA update cycle which our source confirmed. He also mentioned that he saw 6 month worth of OTA updates in the server. Now the same source has double confirmed us that his iPhone has received a mandatory update from AT&T which has updated the carrier to AT&T 7.1.
An Apple employee (call him “Alpha”) who works in the iPhone Development Department has leaked some information to us recently, most of which will come as a surprise to many. The amount of shocking information leaked is beyond the grasp of an individual and shows how far Apple and AT&T will go to lock their users and steal their information while they have no clue about it.
