A couple of days ago, I read in the XDA forums that some were expecting an update for their Photons, and had not yet received it. Today it’s no longer a myth. Sprint, and Moto are pushing Version.4.5.1A-1_SUN-154_5, but you can receive this upgrade by checking for updates manually.
This update includes:
|Voice Calls||Improvements to voice calling to eliminate inadvertent voice calls defaulting to mute|
|Phone Performance||Improve stability, resulting in fewer occurrences of unresponsiveness|
|Bluetooth Connectivity||Bluetooth support for mono headsets with the Sprint Visual Voicemail application|
I hadn’t personally experienced the muted call issue, but I’m sure those who were are happy to receive this update. I’m glad to see the improved stability, I noticed a bit of a lag in responsiveness from time to time. Nothing really frustrating, but improved stability is ALWAYS a good thing!
I haven’t noticed much of a difference, but I know their there, and that’s always comforting.
HERE’S the release from Moto. Happy updating!
Also worth noting, if you’ve rooted your Mo-Pho, installing this update WILL remove root, and you will need to re-root. I’m sure there’s a dev out there that’s already rooted the OTA, though…
UPDATE: So much for responsiveness… Running xScope, and some App updates from the Market caused my Photon to freeze up, then restart on it’s own… uht-oh…
