I am aware of the clock bug. What is the WIFI bug? Have not seen that one yet.
Will I still get this update if the phone is rooted?
Just updated thru wifi.
Has anyone else had a problem where this update seems to make the Centura less stable? Mine locks up completely at least once a day now; a few days ago it happened 4 times in a 16-hour day, including twice in an hour at one point. I can't seem to pinpoint any cause, although I have some suspicion that possibly it is locking up when it is performing one action (not sure which), and then a notification comes in at the same time. But I can't prove this, as I'm never able to completely verify the timing of the notification since the phone is then locked up so I'm not even positive that a new notification came in.
My Centura is currently in use as my main phone, and admittedly I probably demand more from it than was ever intended for this hardware, and more than 99% of other users out there. But still, this is pretty terrible.
Anyway, it all seems to have gotten a lot worse after this update. Has anyone else noticed this?
I know you don't want to hear this, but it's a crummy phone. The update probably force-fed it something that it can't handle without sacrificing performance. The update had something to do with security. Perhaps the phone has to check things that it didn't have to check before. So if you do something that requires checking, it will tie up the system to the point of collapse.
I would just cave in and get a better phone. I got a lower-end Samsung that struggles sometimes with things if they happen too fast. I cannot imagine using a Centura.
Just my two cents.
Thanks for the replies. It certainly might also be an app I installed; I'll try backing out some that I think I installed around the same time as that update. And Gary, thanks also for the app recommendations. I'll install those as well and see if I get any improvement.
It still begs the question about why the phone should need apps in order to function properly. Plus, I should think that apps are using system resources while they are fixing system bugs. This phone should have been discontinued at the Net10/StraightTalk stage.
Clock bug not fixed by MJ1 update. My research indicates that android is designed to work without any app killer. You may want to try running without it because that's one thing they worked on in MJ1 from what I understand.
