I updated to Froyo via Motorola website but it hasn't worked. My phone still shows firmware 2.1.1. Tried to update again via Motorola website but it now tells me that there are no updates for my phone.....I presume that it somehow detects that my phone previously downloaded froyo update.
I've been having issues since I did the Froyo update on my Blue Tick upgraded Telstra defy. Australian users will know what I mean by that. I did a hard reset soon after the froyo update because a few strange things were happenning. The hard reset seemed to resolve my issues.
But now I need to reboot my phone on average once per day. I get google system processes force closing randomly. It usually happens when I'm not even using the phone. I'll pick it up to use it and there'll be a force close message. Stuff like Swype will also randomly force close. When this stuff starts to happen, a heap of my apps won't open. They just force close straight away. When I reboot everything is fine for about another 24 hours, then another google system process will force close and it all starts to happen again.
Has anyone had anything similar happen? Is there any point in doing another hard reset? I can't really see why it would make any difference doing it again. I'm currently in the middle of reformatting my sd card to see if that makes any difference.
Ok so after having to replace the earpiece under warranty I thought would risk another outage to my Defy. It was bought sim-free and I use my work SIM in it from Vodafone. So ran through the upgrade, and it worked first time ... until wifi. Wifi does not connect or rather from what I can determine I cannot actually obtain an IP address. For it to actually connect to the hub I have to force the settings to toggle the "Enable Auto IP" setting and manually set the channel to the same as my hub. (not had to do that with any other phone ... ) by the way, this still does not give me a data connectionAlso tried setting a static IP address and related settings and that does not work either Did a factory reset as recommended on the other pages - no avail.My hub runs WPA/WPA2 and I have a variety of devices connecting to it, trouble free, including 2 other Android 2.2 phones (HTC Desire Z and LG Optimus One), Windows XP, Windows 7, PS3 etc etc ... oh and once I had a Defy running 2.1 Eclair connecting trouble free?
After i upgraded to FroYo, my camera no longer does the auto focus. The image will be blurred. When i press the soft key on the cam screen, it starts focussing and get a clear picture. Also there is a delay bet image capture and flash.
Upgraded the update and the home screen and the icons in the bottom for Menu, Dialler, Contacts did not change. why is that so? when I saw the Android Users guide on Google for 2.2 it has changed from eclair,
How to change it to Froyo from the screen itself they are saying that you are running Eclair Not froyo. After upgrading to Froyo the battery is not so good. How to calibrate the battery
Is there any way for this (or) i have to do a discharge and charge the battery a couple of times. Now also My battery goes from 20% to 70% when i switch on the phone.
After the update i want to restore to its original settings but when i press those buttons (power + volume down) it shows an android and ! which suppose to bring me in an options when i press the lower left of the screen but not, it doesn't work anymore
My phone has multiple resets ad the direction of Motorola, and has been in for a circuit board replacement.Now the screen still freezes and the reception is hopeless.I am sure this handset is a lemon.It is still under warranty, 11 months old.
setting up auto-fetching applies to all email accounts. I swear on my 2.1 Spice XT300, the auto-retrieval was by email address (and also the smallest interval between fetches was 5 minutes, not 15 like on the Defy). I have never used 2.1 on the Defy; mine was original 2.2.1.
My Defy is denied application on the market with no reason that I understand.Some apps are not visible from the phone, and are said "non compatible" from the market website. Sometime the website talks of country restriction while they should not be.
I have had my defy now for a few months, and I have been pretty happy with it (babyproof smartphone!)Unfortunately, its becoming more and more unreliable, and am having to reboot it regularly.This weekend is the worst. Here are some of the things it is doing:
all apps keep freezing and crashing (no fancy apps, mostly use it for twitter, facebook etc).phone keeps freezing and being unresponsible on the home screen keep getting an 'emergency calls only' notification, which then clears straight away when i go into notifications.mms photos - both sent and received take up to 5 days to be visible. until then they are just flagged as 'downloading'. I'm pretty sure it shouldn't take 5 days to download a 27kb file.After rebooting, I did have a gmail widget require a forced close immediately. I was never using that widget anyway, and couldn't see it, so I uninstalled it. Now on rebooting I have to force close Google Services Framework. I have decided that looks reasonably important and useful and have declined to uninstall that so far.
I have a my Defy & XT and as of 9:22 am the weather widget hasn't udated and I've turned the phone off and on etc and then I deleted my location and tried to readd it and it said something like.. location information cannot be found (not sure off hand).. I don't know what to do but it won't let me add any loactions but apps from the market work.
I cant seem to figure out how to update to 2.2. I have an unlocked Defy in the U.S. with AT&T. When I do system update it sais it is current. If I try to update through motorola it directs me to the t-mobile update. How do I get a stand alone download file to update my Defy to android 2.2?
I just bought a defy+ a few days ago and am really happy with it.But my problem is i bougth it in germany with an german retail version of the motoblur (45.0.2310.MB526.Retail.en.DE), I live in denmark and want to change it to the scandinavian version.hen ever I try to download the scandinavian version to the device it tells me it already is up to date and their is no update available. How do i get around this problem and force it update to the scandinavian version.
I've had the phone for a few months now, and it has been somewhat unreliable since day one: random reboots among the many and various problems I've had come and go sporadically. Never got 'round to contacting any kind of support 'till now. I haven't rooted the device, installed any custom ROM etc. It's a retail model FWIW.
I've just used the msu utility to update to 2.2 and after finishing the update the phone won't boot. I see an M logo with an ominous red background, followed by Bootloader
09.10 Err:A5,69,35,00,2F Battery OK OK to Program Connect to USB Data Cable
I've tried holding the volume / power buttons at startup and it doesn't seem to make any difference.
After I was offered and updated to 2.3.6 I can not use data connection anymore. Also APN settings are not being saved and disappear. The customer support is silent on the subject for several days already. The Internet seems to be full of complaints from Germany users
I seem to be having the hardest time updating my defy from 2.1 to 2.2. Whenever I install the 2.2 update I see the android guy with a ! inside a triangle. I tried to upgdate my phone over 5 times and the same thing happens. Last night I decided to restore my phone to the factory settings and try to download and install the update again and no luck, same problem.
My phone is a Retail.De and after update (20-12-2011)I've done a factory reset to try to solve the APN problem. After that also the market is not working any more (server problem), I also tried a new reset and the last market build (3.4.4). So new update means APN and Market are not working.
After the update to 2.2.2 and after a hard reset, the phone takes a long time syncing my Google accounts e-mails. Is there a setting that i have missed ? I am on a 3G data plan. Before when a new e-mail was received in the Gmail inbox i instantly received a notification on my phone.
the phone was fine and then I heard a noise and notived there was a black square with insatll now or later. I installed now and it showed a bar where the progress was.I did not touch the phone and I heard another noise and went to look at the phone.It was black and when i tried to give the pin, it said Sim card locked emergency calls only. The pin is correct.I turned it off and took the battery out and in again then turned it on, but it is still the same.The battery is at 60% so it is not that.Why would this be please? Did I install a virus? It looked just like the normal official updates.
