Official O2 2.1 Update Thread - 09-01-2010, 08:57 AM
** O2 has since pulled this update from their servers, but you can still download it from the mirror hosted below **
If you still want to go to 2.1, I'd recommending using the earlier leaked build which is slightly smoother than the officially released one.
Remember this update is for O2 Dell Streaks only.
We're also hosting it in the UK here:
Just updated mine, took about 15minutes with a couple of automatic restarts, don't touch your Streak until its 100% on the home screen! (The O2 splash stays there for ages)
2.1 bug list has been started here.
O2 have posted a guide on the Dell Streak update process. It states the update will wipe your device, so backup everything first!
O2 Confirm 2.2 in the works @CodeCruiser 2.2 is coming but not just yet

I have installed the unofficial 2.1 update and it is working wonderfully, including the ability to buy protected apps by a simple method suggested by Paul at Modaco to modify build.prop with Nexus fingerprint. I think the Dell is one of the best smartphones I have used and I used to be an Apple fan. Between us, my family has 4 iPhones, I already dumped my 3GS due to signal issues after IOS4 software upgrade. I detest the iPhone now and my family can't wait to get rid of theirs!
One question, if I may. The ONE single issue I still have with the unofficial 2.1 is the front facing camera which doesn't show up in the Camera app. Will the official update rectify this ? I hope so.
Will I have to revert to 1.6 before I can install the official 2.1 or will it install directly over the unofficial software ?
Many thanks in anticipation of your advice. Kind regards.
