    How to update Huawei M835

    I bought a Huawei M835 the other day and it's become one big headache!

    I get notifications that updates are available, but for what?? When I select the notification, all that does, is list both the installed and not installed apps, it tells me nothing about updates.

    I'm also tired of various apps, both Google and metroPCS, starting by themselves without any interaction and this alone is probably causing 75% of the battery drain each day.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to update this and what to do about these auto-running apps? One of the apps I downloaded is Advanced Task Killer Froyo, which will kill the apps, but after a while, they start right up again.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Figured it out. Although it would have been nicer if it had been more obvious.

    Glad you figured it out.

    don't tell anyone else what you did, let them figure it out as well.

    NO bloatware on this phone at all.

    Took me a couple of days to figure everything out. First Android for me.

    Rooting it will make you happy. I did so on my Admire, now it's 3x faster and smoother.
